And when I wake up it's wonderful, like I've been carried quietly onto a calm, peaceful shore, and the dream, and its meaning, has broken over me like a wave and is ebbing away now, leaving me with a single, solid certainty. I know now. ― Lauren Oliver
The Tower tarot card is representative of outdated systems, the old way of thinking and what no longer serves you crumbling away in the awakening of your new awareness. This can arrive in the form of relationships, family and working life. There is a message that you may be living through an old way, one that is now outdated and isn't matching with your new way of life. If you choose to stay stuck in this rigid system then you risk being swept away from your true awakening.
The message that comes forward today is one of big changes. These shifts are significant in your life and are often associated with the past actions you have taken. The Tower is a tarot card which reminds us that there are rules enabling the 'cause and effect' rule to all of the decisions that we make, and on a level we each know that at times those can be very difficult or even unpleasant. They can also reveal the depth of the shadow aspects within our human existence. This in itself is not necessarily a bad thing, as even the most unpleasant of life changes always bring forth a greater good. The Tower finally coming down signifies for you the birth of your alignment with a much greater truth.
Ultimately, this card represents a time of change, transformation, and the healthy transmutation of the old. It may at times feel like the solid ground is beginning to shake beneath your feet and the upheaval may be quite uncomfortable, however, it is necessary to allow the nature of the Universe to swiftly remove what no longer serves you. This transition may even be painful, but know this discomfort will not last long. Think of a time in your life before when you did not know how you would make it through. Yet you did. Remember that it is a fundamental aspect to the universal alchemical process. Destruction is absolutely essential for your new life to emerge.
Your life lessons are learned by these changes, and this gives birth to radical shifts for you, even though initially it won't feel like it. At the end of these lessons you always see why things had to happen. New experiences will arrive, better people, happier emotions, and more positive thoughts will fill your life in ways that you never thought could be possible, and it will make sense only then; that what you have now gained couldn’t come to you earlier, it couldn't get in because there was something else there. A great Tower with High walls which prevented the light from getting in. These life lessons will allow you to harness the skills of better judgment, experiences and wisdom to apply in your future.
