16 The Tower – Growth through Deconstruction


ThulamelaThe past two weeks have been about change and transformation, we have identified that which is not working for us and now this week we need to deconstruct those illusions and delusions and begin to restructure and restore our power and passion.

Its always difficult and challenging to say the least when we are faced with change. We must never forget our true value. When we allow others to take control of our lives we find ourselves in positions and situations we did not choose. Often we are less than satisfied with the results. So this week we need to take back that control, put ego aside and jump into our desired future.

This card need not be as ominous as the Death card as it too represents change. And change is certain – if we resist changing ourselves, our ways, thoughts and actions then life will bring the changes to us, without inner control the changes can be traumatic, with control they may still be dramatic but manageable.

You may feel that you are being poked at from many different directions and the energy around you is argumentative, keep control. Don’t lose your temper or remain in a state of irritation. Not everything is or should be personal, what ever you do this is not a time to panic. When we panic we lose our focus and understanding and tend to make bad judgement calls. When we carefully consider the outcome and think things through and we are not in a state of crisis then we are rewarded with the results that we want.

As much as you are ‘doing it for yourself’ remember that others are also doing it for themselves. In the situations that present, you need to ask, is this going to work for me, if not then you need to make the required adjustments and carry on with your own plan.

This is particularly true in the workplace. We don’t have much choice on how the business is run, the expectations, basic rules and regulations. However we do have the choice to co-operate, give our best to that end. If we are unhappy, then we need to make changes. Nothing thrives in negative conditions. We need to decide if the environment we are in supports our inner being, adds something to our lives, helps us to be our true selves. If not then we need to move on. We always pay the price for our decisions. So whatever comes your way this week – “Keep calm and Carry On”

The most important aspect of the Tower is that from destruction comes the opportunity to rebuild. It can be a time of awakening and is about what inspires you to create. Destruction is also a release from the bondage and all that constricts you. This is a time for truth and honesty, be prepared for that lightning bolt from out of nowhere. Be shocked out of your comfort zone. The choice is yours, to stay in the self defeating way or to reach for the transformation and inspiration that is within.
