church of tarot: the tower (reversed)


The Tower is one of the major arcana cards of which there are 22. It represents misery, distress, ruin, indigence, adversity, calamity, discrace, deception. Because it is reversed, or upside down, the card holds a slightly different meaning. According to one account, the same in a lesser degree, also oppression, imprisonment, and tyrrany.

This card is one of the most unhappy cards in the deck, and one of the few that does not become much better upon it’s reversal.

I hope that you’re all staying strong through your ‘towery’ times, please share!
