THE TOWER Key-16: The Path of Peh

The Hebrew word Peh-means Mouth, which links this Thoth Deck tarot card to the Tower of Babble of Biblical lore. It defines the difference between the Word ofGod and the languages of mankind. The Word of God is the Logos, or foundational Vibration of Energy that is the Root of all Creation and unless spoken with the Power of Mars (willful force), mankind's words are merely definitions of what has already been created and a but shadows of Truth..
The Planet associated with the Tower Card is Mars a driving force that connects the center of Reasoning (Hod) with the center of intuitive- desire nature (Netzach). Peh, is the balancing path of the Personality that equalizes reason and desire. Peh is a double letter meaning that it has two possible directions of passage  The Mouth is an orifice that takes in nourishment to the system as well as  expresses words.  Through breath and even a more powerful breathing- Pranic Breathing, (yoga breath) ,the higher energies of Spirit can enter the human system and by the power of chanting (vibrational control) these subtle energies can aid in creation. Thus the term of the Mars speak of the Magician was developed to imply the power of willful intonation.
The Tower itself is the literal world of human language that blocks expansive thinking and which must be toppled in order to evolve the personality. This Spiritual growth in understanding and perspective is not always fun----in fact it can be devastatingly unpleasant. The more we are walled in by the "brick and mortar" of our thoughts, the more force is needed to topple our errant understandings of Self. With a great blast of lightning (Fiery Will of Spirit) our personal self conceptions [ego based on definitions] are brought down, so that we can see the True Ego who manifests us. We wouldn't be able to "Know Ourselves" when our identities are walled up in a Tower of Language. So this card is a deliverance but in a necessarily harsh way as our own personal "I" [our Towers] are limited by man made institutions, and false concepts which we believe to be reality.
The Higher Self, is the original "I", as shown in this card as the "All seeing Eye", is the Real Ego, who will step in and bring down our world of self deception of our reality egos, whether in the destruction of man made institutions (War) or man-made definitions. The Tower is a card of Transformation, brought about by destroying the old to build the new. It is interesting to note that the Planet Mars maybe the symbol for the Roman God of War and destruction, but it is also the god who rules over the fertility of crops. Yes it is a Phallic symbol and that line of reasoning requires a greater investigation than I can supply here. Crowley described the "Blasted Tower as a phallus shooting forth the lightning seeds" of a new era. Male and Female forces are implied here.
The Thoth Deck Tower card is full of surprises, the Serpent and Dove images, according to Crowley, represent "..the will to live and the will to die" and are also "the Masculine and Feminine impulses". The geometric forms above the Tower, symbolize the straight lines used in man-made construction, while nature is not constructed of straight lines. This implies that seeking perfection[straight lines] leads to no-thing, and as Crowley states," all manifestations, however glorious, however delightful, are stains." which I have called ,"The color of reality". The Tower Card is then the  wiping clean of our mental pallet of self, that we use to paint our reality with.
In this card, the all seeing Cosmic Eye observes and directs the disruptive process of the Towers destruction while the Flaming Mouth of the Roman god of the dead, Dis, belches flames a the base of the Tower. If pursued, the student will find deeper and deeper meanings to this Tower Card, going all the way back to the Kings of Edom who are the two figures falling from the Tower and who represent the dual modes of lower personal consciousness [conscious and subconscious]. Initiates in to the Mysteries of Gnostic Qaballah, spend up to a year meditating on this card.....and it can be a very "hard year' indeed! It is a kind of self immolation, in order to consume the lower personality and rise up on the smoke of its destruction -- phoenix like into Higher Self realization. This may deter the weak of heart but this Path is necessary to develop the Hard Desire that is a driving force behind our Divine inheritance.
When thrown, The Tower proclaims deep psychological, emotional and physical changes are being predicted for the querent. A personality change or reconfiguring of personal definition is on the Horizon that is necessary for further progress. It could be the destruction of illness for the rebuilding of health. The destruction of an Institution (work, religion etc.) so that the querent can proceed in creating their dreams.  This is a very meaningful card , and the surrounding cards must be taken into consideration when interpreting this Card!
