Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - (16) The Tower
General: It is likely that some people/situations that you have counted on as being there for you may no longer be there in quite the same way. This doesn't have to be dire; change is the nature of life, and trying to prevent it is like trying to row upstream without a paddle. If you have been building castles in the air this may be the time that some of them come crashing down to earth. That's only a problem if you let it be. You will be able to replace them with some more realistic and reachable dreams and goals if some fantasies fall apart this month. Dreaming is important, but it's also important to be living in reality too. You will get through this time just fine; particularly if you remember that you have all the resources you need, already inside you, to deal with life and to do what you need to do.
Work: The energy of this time lends itself toward arguments; try to keep your temper under control, and not take everything that others say to heart too much. Sudden reversals can happen now. This is not an indicator that you need to panic. It is, however, an indicator that forewarned is forearmed. Even if you think that you have the most stable job or sources of income in the world, what would you do if it dried up tomorrow? Where might you go immediately for work if you needed to? Thinking things through now, when you are not in a crisis, may pay big dividends for you on down the road. If you hate your job, give serious thought to making a change. You deserve to be happy.
Love: This can be (but is not necessarily) an indicator of a relationship that is about to end. If you are in a relationship that you absolutely, positively, don't want to see end, this is an important time for damage control and for clear communications. Find out how your partner is feeling/doing. Don't make assumptions. Find out for sure.
Finances: This is not a time for risky investments, gambling, or counting on the lottery to make things work out for you. Even if you know the news will not be easy to stomach, find out exactly what you are dealing with financially. It may not be as bad as you think. It is certain, however, that you aren't making anything any better by avoiding the issues. Deal with any problems in a straightforward manner.
Health: Paying attention to what you are doing is critical now. Be careful. Your nerves may be frayed, do whatever you need to do to calm down and stay steady. Exercise can help with this. If you know what you're doing (and know about your allergies, and your doctor approves) consider trying relaxing herbs. Careful with drugs and alcohol now, if you use any.
Spirituality: This is a time again to keep a positive attitude as much as possible. New understandings and insights may come to you in the blink of an eye.
