The Positive Side of XVI The Tower

This was one of my cards from last week. XVI The Tower. Many depict this card as people falling from the windows, flames shooting out of the crevices, generally a very depressing card. Upheaval is coming & it is going to bitch slap you. I understand the scary notions that run around in the mind, but there is a positive side to this card.

This card can mean you are creating a life from chaos that has plagued you. It can mean that you are starting a new life, a new foundation to build upon due to what has crumbled around you. Don’t allow fear of this card to make you think a negative here. Try to look at the positive aspects if you can.

“Well my husband left me, but this means I can create a better life for ME.”
“Well the job did create a lot of chaos in my life & made me choose family or job. I can always rebuild my career without the feeling of guilt.”
“Well my friendship may not have been the best, but this allows me to see new opportunities in finding new friends.”
“Well I know I may be clumsy & fall, but I do my best to walk with grace.” (This is so me here lol I am very clumsy as I trip on air!)

So if you get a negative card in a tarot reading, try to look at the positives within it. I know sometimes it may be hard to even do that in certain situations, but it would put your mind at ease.

Tarot Tip: Why Intuition is Better than Description in Booklet?

I thought I would share this tarot tip with you newbies out there.

Many get lost in all 78 cards, wanting to read in reverse, thinking that they may be wrong in their readings so they are constantly referring to the booklet…more than they should. This tarot tip should help you SEE better.

You will need:
A journal of some sort as it is better to write down your musings.
Your deck of tarot cards.
Your little white booklet that gives the meanings of your tarot cards.

Now you can either pull out a card to journal or just start with 0 The Fool and go in order of your book. Some tarot decks have 0 The Fool card at the end. There is no wrong way to do this. This will help you grasp your readings.

So let’s look at 0 The Fool card for example. Without looking at the booklet with meanings, look at the card and write down everything you SEE, HEAR, FEEL, SMELL…every little thing that comes forth as you view this card.  Give yourself a good 10-15 minutes as you take the time to study this card. How would this card relate to love, job, friendship, relationships with family? Write down everything you can. Even if you feel it is not worth it, trust me it is.

Now look at the booklet. Were you close to the meanings? Did you discover new meanings? There is no wrong way to do this exercise and your written thoughts aren’t wrong either. This is how you see this card. This is helpful for you to do readings for others by using your intuition. Now continue this step with the rest of the cards. Try to do at least 1 a day.

And that’s your tarot tip! Hope it helps you!
