Let's talk about The Tower ~ this week's Card of the Week The Tower burns ... we cannot stay here any more. We must jump for our lives, or perish. The old ways are destroyed. There is no clear path of escape. We must run for our lives.
When the tower shows up often we do feel the panic rising ... things are falling apart in our lives and we fear the unknown. But the truth is that things wouldn't fall apart so dramatically if they had been in alignment. We need a clean slate. A fresh start. And the tower burns away everything in our lives that isn't working and shoves us into the next phase of our lives.
We can go into that next phase kicking and screaming and we often do. The waves in the card represent the tumultuous emotions we feel as we go through this sudden and unexpected change. We are well advised to embrace the change but fear of the unknown and often trauma for our losses make this process more complicated than at glance. We often can see that ultimately this is a good thing but it doesn't *feel* good right away.
I have included Ganesh here as he is the remover of obstacles and that sentiment is valid under the chaos of the tower. I have included clear quartz for clarity for true sight and for energy in pushing through this time of massive change. I also have included black tourmaline for release: release of the past, of the trauma, of the pain, of our ego.
We can invoke the tower if needed but it's usually something that comes uninvited. But sooner or later it comes to all of us. And allowing it to wash you clean. You might need to deal with the debris left from the fall, but from there you do have a clean start. And there is something to be said for a new beginning, however it has come about.
