Keywords for The Tower Tarot Card

  • Sudden and unwanted breakthrough and change
  • Necessary upheaval or crisis
  • Under attack by forces beyond your control
  • Violence, hostile takeover


The Tower tarot card brings up strong emotions. It represents unexpected, unwanted, and unseen change. The Tower shows up when things are about to drastically change in your life.

Things are going to get worse before they get better.

The change is ultimately good, but some shit is about to go down before you get there. You are under attack from forces beyond your control or understanding. There is nothing you can do.

It’s an unexpected attack, so you won’t see it coming and you can’t prepare for it.

With such a scary and unwanted meaning, many people consider this to be a “negative” card. However, there aren’t really any negative cards in the tarot deck.

The Tower is necessary for change and growth. Ultimately, it has a powerful and inspiring message: there is something wonderful on the other side of this pain, but the only way out of this mess is to go through it.

In The Fool’s journey through the Major Arcana, The Tower card represents the last of the major life lessons: you can’t control everything and bad things happen to good people. That’s a guarantee. Now, what are you going to do about it?
