Every Tuesday I select one tarot card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?
Each Wednesday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Wednesday (tomorrow) to see what cards come up.
Today's card is The Tower (reversed). When I pulled this card, it reminded me of when I was going through my divorce and this card kept coming up. But then the card was in its upright position, which means the collapse of a structure, a way of life an awakening and a major transformation. Everything I thought I knew was being tested. It was tough, but it is also an invitation to see the world differently and gain insight.
Even the image on The Tower can be frightening. Bodies are flying out of a tower that is burning. Dark skies loom behind and there is an inevitable feeling of dread that the bodies will hit the ground and the structure will crumble. As I type this, it reminds me of what happened to the World Trade Center on 9/11.
But today The Tower is reversed, which means the transition has already begun to take place. It was a complete shock, but you are past the point of immobilization and fear and have started moving forward.
The instability you felt as the Tower crumbled was most likely in direct proportion to how much stock you put in the structures and beliefs you had in place. The more you depended on how you put your world together, the more disappointed you felt as you experienced this huge shift.
The Tower (reversed) indicates that the trauma is over and you have begun to move on. As you look back at the "mess," and can so clearly remember how bad it was (and possibly still is), what are some of the benefits of what has happened? No matter how bad it seems, take a moment now to come up with at least three benefits, even if one of them is the fact that it is over.
Stay focused on the positives as you move forward and remember that life is full of cycles. Move forward from here with an eager heart and know that "this too shall pass." You are stronger now and will gain even more compassion as you heal.
