Major Arcana: The Infamous Tower Card

“You know what it takes for a star to fucking shine? A shit load of darkness.”

The beginning of the year is always that time of motivation. So, I thought it would be the perfect time to discuss the infamous Tower Card. This is a card I know too well because I’ve experienced it many times in my life. It isn’t my favorite card, but there is so much goodness that comes out from the storm of the Tower card. It’s just hard to see it in the moment you are in the rubble.

So, what is the Tower card?

The tower card is known for being the breakdown of weak foundations. When this comes up in your tarot reading that means there will be some kind of dramatic shock that will enter your life. It may be unpleasant, but it’s long overdue. The dramatic shock can be short and quick, small and last a day, or it can be long lasting. It’s important to not fear the tower, but that’s easier said than actually done.

When going through an experience of the tower card it’s important for you to look at what caused this situation in the first place. Don’t be a victim- look at your life honestly, then rebuild. This card has the most capacity for healing once you discovered what caused the breakdown of the foundations around you.

How the Tower card has affected me in the past

A memorable time I experienced the Tower card was when I was 19 years old. I was ready to settle down and have a family with the guy I was in a relationship with for a couple of years, and my world got rocked. I found out he was a serial cheater.. I was channeling Crazy Kristin from Vanderpump Rules, and was on some espionage shit. I hacked into his e-mail and saw nude, after nude, and e-mails of him setting up dates. That moment made me feel like my world was falling apart. And it did. It ended up not working with my HS sweetheart, and instead of my goals of being a trophy wife, I started going to school for graphic design.

That moment of my world falling apart led me to becoming the women I am today. A woman who became a creative manager and eventually went out to start her own business as a freelancer and candle maker. Who knows where I would’ve ended up if those foundations didn’t break, but I don’t think I would be as happy as I am now.

When I lost everything, was the moment I began a new life, and a better path. So, if you are experiencing the tower card right now, you will rebuild something better and stronger. You just have to keep the faith and stay motivated.

So, it wouldn’t be January if I didn’t end this off with some motivational quotes and a Hustle, Honey playlist.

Favorite Motivation Quotes

  • In order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you.

  • Sometimes when you’re in a dark place you tend to think you have been buried. What if you’ve been planted?

  •  I believe every single person in the world is born with genius level talent. You just got to find out what it is that you are a genius at. I don’t believe that God would take one person and say “You’ you’re special… I ain’t no muthafuckin different than anybody here tonight and I’m standing on this stage as living proof, you apply yourself to what it is you’re a genius at and you can do anything in the world.

  • Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore.

  • I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

  • People only have as much liberty as they have the intelligence to want and the courage to do it.

  • Learn how to take care of yourself so that the man you marry is the man you choose to be with and not just the man who will take care of you.

  • Things may come to those who wait, but only left by those who hustle.

  • Overwhelming busy is a much better state than overwhelmingly bored.

  • You can’t have it all, and nothing comes easy. You will make sacrifices and compromises, get let down and let other people down, fail and start over, break some hearts, take some names, and learn to pick up and continue when your own heart gets broken. Difficult doesn’t mean impossible.

  • Great entrepreneurs are like Indiana Jones: They take leaps before seeing the bridge because they know that if they don’t, someone else will get that holy grail.

Now I leave you with some Hustle, Honey music, enjoy!
