Thoth Deck Tarot: The Tower -Key 16: Part 2

As in most Tarot cards of the Major Arcana, the Tower Card has many layers of meaning. We have, War, the Changing of the Aeon, personality annihilation, reconstruction of the person via Soul "I" sight and even the deeper occult meanings of Universal deconstruction as the dream of God  is abolished by the Awakened God.
The many symbols on this card represent all of these meanings. We have the All Seeing eye of the Awake Shiva, the Halloed Serpent Force, the Lion- Serpent Abraxas, the Dove of Peace that is the Holy Spirit (also the Venus influence) and the crystaline humanoid,shapes of the falling figures, who because of their indoctrination have become indistinct geometrical expressions that are unrecognizable as individuals.
The Lion-Serpent Abraxas ( or Xnoubis) and the Dove of Peace, represent two forms of Desire" The Will to live and the Will to die., There is yet another layer in meaning here, as the former is the Feminine and the latter is the masculine impulses. Some may see these two as in contradiction, but in all actuality,  "the will to live" and the "Will to die" are the inseparable "Wife and Husband" of all creation. Life and death are a single manifestation of all Energy. It behooves us to remember, that no matter how great the creation, it is going to "proceed from order to disorder"...entropy happens to Energy, when it is made to 'manifest" as form. Form is a Ruled and Controlled environment that causes a Static Form, eternal motion, requires this stasis to degrade back into motive energy. energy; transformation requires transformation of transformations, in order to constantly transform.
When this card is thrown during a reading, it is representing, ambition, war, courage and fighting,  In certain card combinations the Tower can represent destruction., danger, ruin and fall. However, it is mostly about the universal principle of reconstruction and renovation and is often seen  to mean that the Querent is a healer, restorer and renovator who aids in or is experiencing  the breaking down of the 'self absorbed individual self (often called Ego") and eliminating what is false-to fact (supported by denial), artificial and no longer of use to the progressive individual. A breakthrough in self thought that shatters the old structures of belief. The deconstruction of  self-definition necessary for Enlightenment.
The Tower, may seem all doom and gloom,. but in reality, our Soul is merely bringing us out of slavery to the definitions of self depredation (the Child of Man) and back into the Original Identity of our Creation, The Child of God. This may cause some "internal turmoil", but it won't be long-lived.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!

Wow! Thank you for your praising comments and daily interest. I hope that my small endeavors at Qabalistic Tarot explanations help you, "Above all things, Know thyself", for that is one person surely worth knowing! May you live long and prosper.

Hi Eli, in an earlier post you touched briefly on the concept that the Tower represents the union of concepts put forth by the Star and the Sun, I was wondering if you could talk a little bit more about this. Thanks!

Hi Cooper, The Sun-key 6, is about "the Solar Dancing Twins", both Life and Death, are the twins of construction, which is destruction, and reconstruction of the past. Such are the forces of the Tower. The Star is about "As above, so below, so below as above", which is also the Transformation of One into many, and back to One". The flow of the Electromagnetic Spectrum/Light microwaves, if changed from the Above (Silver/infinite) to the Below (Golden/finite of the Sun). Therefore, both talk of the forces of "Change" and reconstruction. I hope this explanation helps. May you live long and prosper.
