The Tower card in tarot is all about the downfall of old ideas. A structure has suddenly and violently come crashing down, leading to chaos and distress, but it has also made room for something new to be built. The basic symbols of this card are a tower on a rocky outcrop, a bolt of lightning, a couple of figures falling from the tower, and waves crashing below.
When the Tower card appears in a Tarot reading expect the unexpected. There’s no escaping it because change is here! Also, be aware that the Tower tarot card can mean that you are being deceived.
