Sasha Graham's Tarot Card a Day Blog – The Tower

The Tower.


The Tower Tarot card. Embrace it or fear it – if you are a Tarot devotee, there are moments where you must face this card head on. The Tower is understood as shock, massive disruption, illumination or an eye opening moment.

When I drew the Tower as my card a day, my instinct was to pull back. Resisting this urge, I looked closer, challenging myself to look at little deeper.

If you ever struggle with the meaning of a card, you can do as I did – I literally asked the card out loud, “What is your message for me?” Then wait and let it come.

My eyes were drawn to the lightening bolt. My message was – I was to have a flash of brilliance today!

I live a stone’s throw, literally in the shadow of the Empire State Building. It was designed to serve as a lightening rod and protect the surrounding area. Lightening strikes my neighborhood over a hundred times a year via that landmark. There’s a good reminder I should stay open and available to a higher power that brings insights and moments of brilliance.

Later that afternoon – the flash of illumination struck me! As I curled up for a cat nap, a genius idea for my daughter’s fifth birthday occurred. I followed up with my plan, made it happen and am parlaying my concept into an article for a local New York Kids magazine.

Lightening will always follow the path of least resistance. I let the idea carry me and I followed through.  In “The Secret” they say the universe likes a quick reaction. In other words, if inspiration strikes, don’t hesitate. I didn’t.

Did the Tower card predict this? Did it come to me because I insisted to myself I’d have a brilliant thought? Was I so hell bent on ignoring the negative aspect of the Tower that I made something positive happen? I don’t know.

What I do know, is I’m busy at work and inspired. When the Tower crumbles, it leaves enlightenment in its wake. I’m feeling psyched and excited. Thanks Tower. Guess you are not so scary after all.

  1. Really loved your insights on the Tower. This card can be so scary. I call it one of the BigBadBehometh’s of the Tarot. 🙂 Your take on it is so powerful! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thanks Arwen!
    I get a little freaked out whenever this card shows up for me. I love how it wound up playing out that day! You’d think after all these years I’d get bored of card a day but I never do!
