The Tower Card Meaning - Major Arcana - Ancient Alchemy Tarot - image

The Tower card lives in the 5th house and is ruled by Leo and the Sun. Tower energy connects with you through the 2nd Chakra.

I'm using the Marseille Tarot deck because it's the first Tarot that we know about, and it was brought to this planet by Nicolas Flamel in the 14th century. It's a tool of personal development used in the secret school of alchemy. If you have any prior experience with Tarot, I invite you to open your mind to a new way of interpreting the cards. Hopefully, this information will add up to your current knowledge.

Who are you? The zodiac sign Leo is all about self-identity. When you’re in a classroom, you’re a student, and when you’re with your children, you’re a parent. You must have multiple identities depending on your place and situation.

Sometimes you can put yourself in a bubble. For example, when you are a teacher, you are in the bubble of authority, but when you get out of the classroom, you are an average person.

But some people don’t come out of their bubbles, especially when they are recognized for a specific activity.

The Tower, your ego is crumbling

On the top of the Tower is a crown, which means power, and people fall down because a kind of comet hits the Tower.

This means that you are not living according to your essence, so life will take away your crown; your identity will be shattered.

Those who live according to their essence have charisma and are spiritually protected by the card 17 Star. The Tower wants to bring you there.

On the path of personal development, you will get to know yourself more and more, and your identities will have to change. This process is not always pleasant, but you must open yourself to the new.

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themselves.

Leo Tolstoy

The Tower’s destruction must happen to clear out the old identities and welcome the new. Its revelations can come in a flash of truth or inspiration.

The Tower is not about something terrible, like a disaster or a significant loss. Change is a constant of life, and you must go through it to evolve.

But sometimes, it can cause fear because you must abandon the truths you know. Some behaviors caused by your identity are no longer helpful. You must find another set of beliefs, values, and processes to take their place.

Be optimistic; it is time to replace the old foundations of the past with something that is more genuine and will serve you better in what is to come.

This card also asks you not to take life so seriously and neither take yourself so seriously. Enjoy the experiences that life gives you with joy!

Keywords: identity, ego, resisting change, new ways.

Use the Tower’s energy to find your true essence and…

Let the magic happen!
