tower erected on a hill is struck by lightning. The
castellated top of the tower is lifted by the blast and
fire strikes deep within. Flames roar from three narrow
windows as two figures fall from their ruined refuge. The
Tower is a symbol of safety. In this case, of course, it

card reflects the fact that nothing can stand against the
will of the divine.
Meaning: The breaking down of an outworn sense of values.
A sudden shock that is nevertheless a blessing in
disguise. Freedom from old, possibly self-imposed
restrictions. Sudden disruptive change is inevitable but

a better and stronger person.
Reversed meaning : False accusations, imprisonment and
oppression. Another interpretation is that you will cause
a sudden change or show a rebellious altitude that will be
a shock, surprise or dismay to others.
