07/10/13: House of Cards / Tower Rx

tower-reversed

The Tower reversed—better than the Tower upright, I think? Eh. Although I repeat over and over, “There are no ‘bad’ cards,’ I’ll acknowledge the Tower as one of my least favorites. It’s not that I am uncomfortable with Mars energy on the whole (association of the Tower card), but more that when it shows up, there tends to be significant disruption and stress. That Tower is always coming down!

Inverted, though, the impact is going to be less severe. Think of it as either more minor disruptions or the period of disruption coming to an end. I like that better. In my work, I do find that the Tower is a card of integrity, in the sense that whatever revealed by it’s fall is always TRUTH. Those caught in it’s fall have tended to avoid hard facts, either consciously or unconsciously. That is helpful to know.

Truth trumps deception. The Tower is a reminder sometimes the process is sudden, startling and harsh. Reversed, though, I’m inclined to say it probably wasn’t unexpected. Perhaps the warning gave you enough time to step back a little from the party that ended so badly? If not, back away now, because delays or no, the Tarot Tower is never a permanent structure.

Think “house of cards.” Because this is what the Tower energy is like: an impressively high house of cards that people inhabit with the assumption it will always be what it appears to be today. Inverted, maybe the collapse is finishing, less severe than it could be, or just delayed. Either way, be wary of the house of cards. All houses of cards are inherently instable.

Are you seeing the disruption of a House of Cards?

  1. The money has been nice. The free hours will be nice on the other end. Of course, has my investment account closed out yet? No . . . . so it will be testy for the short term, but totally fine long term.

  2. Also I thought you might enjoy someone laughing about tower-ish things.

  3. Oh I am laughing so hard right now. I just got a call from Awesome Boss that my contract is terminated as of end of July. I that perfect or what?!

    I’m not upset – the part time contract months have been bonus time that were not in the original budget. But as usual, Dixie, you nailed it.

    I think it’s a sign of what to expect while I’m out of town and the check comes. Looking at the bank account online, I will have to take ALL of the money from the check that comes for me, as well as my daughter’s, to have enough money for the trip and to keep us afloat until the third Wednesday of August. I’m angry, and disappointed, that he continues to drink, and continues to lie about it – not only to me, but to his therapist as well. This is bullshit. The nine days we are away, I will be using that distance from him to make the hard decisions I cannot make while he is anywhere near me.

  5. Hi Dixie,
    thank you for this. I hope it’s the distractions coming to an end what is in store for us or at least for me today – I scheduled an appointment with a technician from my phone company, because my home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html phone has gone offline during Mercury’s retrograde through Cancer. Can’t wait to be connected again.
