Personal Accident Lawyer

When the Tower falls, it might be time to contact a personal accident lawyer. Sometimes things go wrong and accidents happen. No matter how mild or severe your accident may be, it is wise to speak with a personal accident lawyer to find out if you are entitled to compensation for your loss or injury. At the very least you might be able to get a lawyer to help you navigate the situation and get your medical bills paid for.

Sometimes personal accidents or injuries happen due to reasons that are no one's fault but sometimes it is because of negligence. Problems like slipping at work due to unsafe conditions or suffering lung problems because of asbestos exposure are examples of personal injuries that you might be able to get financial compensation for.

The Tower

The Tower Tarot Card

Lightning strikes. A car crash. A partner proposes. The ceiling falls in. You discover you're expecting a baby. A mudslide. These are all sudden things that can change our lives forever. The Tower card can represent all these things and more – those moments in our lives that happen suddenly, with little warning, but change so many things about the way we live.

In the Tower card we see, predictably, a tower. Not just any tower, but a tower in the midst of toppling. Lightning is striking the tower, throwing the inhabitants off the topmost floor... most likely to their deaths. Symbolically, we see a crown at the top of the tower being tossed off and uprooted from its place on high. To top it all off, the tower is on fire – flames are pouring out of the windows. Needless to say, this isn't the happiest of cards.

Sudden change. The Death card signals a change, yes, but the Tower is a bit more ominous – it signals very sudden change, and usually not for the better. At the very best, the Tower variety of change is usually a neutral type – something changing that is neither positive nor negative.

Its sudden nature is what makes this card something that is generally considered negative. We, as humans, like to know what is coming to ensure our own safety but the events of the Tower throw that in our faces. You can expect something big to come along and change who you are, what you do, and more.

Sometimes, these sudden, harsh circumstances are brought about as a wake-up call. Epiphany strikes, and you suddenly realize something you could have seen all along. This commonly happens with the sudden death of a loved one – people will realize that they need to spend time with those they love, or they may never get the chance. It's a great revelation, and it changes so many things that a person does or thinks but at a great cost.

The Only Constant is Change

Is the Tower always a negative card? No card in the tarot deck is always negative. The Tower can stand for a sudden reversal of fortunes – unexpectedly winning the lottery, inheriting a piece of land, a new birth... all these things are sudden, and will completely change your world. Whenever a sudden change comes around, they do not come predetermined as /“negative/” or /“positive/” - any change is exactly what you make of it.

You'll want to seriously consider asking yourself some unforgiving questions when you pull the Tower card. How should you prepare for the unexpected? Can you? If you had one thing you wanted to do today, what would it be? If you had one day to live, what would you do? If something sudden were to happen, would you be able to keep your head? Start asking some of the big questions, so that when an unexpected turn of events comes along you won't find yourself shocked, bitter, and heartbroken.

The Death card has a lot in common with the Tower – both signal an ending of something, as well as something new. The Tower, however, is most certainly more sudden than Death – death itself can be a slow, gentle process, and doesn't need to be a surprise. Another card that is much like the Tower? The Sun. surprised? The Sun card can herald in a new revelation or way of thinking, just like the Tower. Sometimes it takes a great deal of happiness for us to think a new way, and other times it takes a great deal of hardship.

What the Tower Means for You Today

When the Tower card appears in your reading it can sometimes be an omen of trouble ahead or it can be a warning. At its core, this care represents the destruction of an aspect of the ego, which is always a good thing but the experience doesn't always feel good. When things fall apart it is only because they were built on weak foundations. Sometimes you need to start over from scratch to be able to rebuild stronger. If you ask the tarot to tell you about one of your plans and you pull the tower card, it is a good idea to rethink those plans before executing. If you are doing a general reading and pull this card, don't freak out. Trust that if things don't go your way, it is for a good reason.
