A rift in reality
EXPERIENCING the Tarot TOWER
Hello, fragility. Oh-so-soft-and-sweet and cracking, as everything seems to crumble into a million little fragments. When life seemingly falls apart and everything is breaking into pieces, this Muse can be called upon to powerfully clear any situation and to carefully… oh so carefully, pick up the slivers of broken dreams and of mismatched ingredients. She finds herself drawn to these moments of breaking down, to lives filled with large, stagnant blocks of energy. When they become loose they offer opportunities to create a whole new foundation from the shattered bits, and like a cosmic puzzle- maker she creates from this chaos and moves heavy, outgrown fractures in order to force-fit the new. She is the re-builder of stories, dreams and souls… the seemingly ruthless teacher who sees the possibility long before you do. And she is not afraid of change. She revels in it, actually, as lives stuck in the mud always have diamonds hiding just beneath the surface. She knows that she would not be drawn to any situation that was already perfectly balanced, or whole. She knows that sandblasting is needed prior to polishing, and she knows you can handle the discomfort while you work with her to create the new. She is only called in to sweep up the mess when things are already failing and shifting uncontrollably in the background. She does the final bulldoze, knowing that it may feel painful. Or scary. So she does it as lovingly and as peacefully as she can. Yield to her musings and allow shifting to happen as she sets things into re-alignment. Resistance is futile. And painful. And she hopes you will welcome her with open arms, and see what’s possible when you find adventure in the unknown of the unexplored.
Begin your meditation as the small character who is falling from the rock at the bottom of the card. Then grow into the powerful Muse of the Tower. What feels do you feel? What can you learn from her chaotic yet beautiful destruction?
Deconstruction and reconstruction time! Throw paint around. Rip up a painting or drawing or poem (or bill!) you dislike, and reconstruct it any way you see fit. It may become a creative mess. A beautiful cacophony… or maybe you will decide to self-correct and change what you see in the mess.
