Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- Key 16- The Tower & The Legends Tarot-Key 16-The Tower

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-Key 16-The Tower& The Legends Tarot- Key 16-The Tower:

Due to the limits of time/space, and the Power of Limitation, I will continually cover the Thoth Tarot Cards more thoroughly than I have done in the past blogs, in an ever-present evolutionary process. So feel free to scroll back and review the individual Thoth Tarot cards in comparison with different tarot decks, for more detailed information.

That being said, the Legends Tarot shows Key 16, the Tower as a knighted human form, raising a sword that is a lightning rod, or sending forth lightning. The Tower, instead of something being destroyed by the lightning of a wrathful divinity, is whole and unoccupied. This card seems to concentrate on the champion heart of an individual who is rallying others around his banner, to go forward and fight the dark chaos.

Which really isn't the traditional meaning of this key. It is traditionally about overthrowing the institutionalize authority, created by man, in favor of the divine authority that created all living things.


Severity visits us because we refuse to change, and that is entropy and will not be favored by the Soul. Thus, salvation falls from the Heavens, the lightning and wipes out the obsolete ego, in order to allow us further progress. The Love of Spirit, demands we stand in our power, and not kneel to our weakness. That Power, the ability to do work, requires adaption, change, flexibility and often, complete self reconstruction. Attitudes no longer adequate for the situation shall be swept away by the Spiritual motion within for the material world is transitory but the soul is immortal in its movement of I AM.

THE THOTH DECK KEY-16-THE TOWER:
Basically states the message that the inner self, will change outer self, whether it likes it or not. The harder one resists change the more traumatic the required change will be. 
In the Thoth Tarot, key 16 is subtitled "war" and in medieval times it was called the "house of god" or the "blasted tower". For it is under the influence of Mars and attributed to the letter Peh {meaning-Mouth}, referring to Mars. Here  cosmic energy is represented in its most primeval form.
What is usually shown as key 16 the Tower, is the destruction of the existing material by fire, and/or the old Aeon of Osiris (The Patriarch) being destroyed for the establishment of the New Aeon of Horus, shown as the Great Eye of Horus in the Card. This great "I" is a new identity, that of the Divine Child of The Divine Creative (Christ or Buddha consciousness), coming to the mundane man-made identity of the past. As we all know, new software (identity) requires erasure of the old, before it can operate or up-grade the hardware or in the human body sense, the "wet ware", properly. Thus, we have the geometric shapes of man-made identity falling from the tower, as there are no straight lines in nature who constructs all things from "spiral energy". Thus flexible and ever changing; something the righteous man can never be.

The formula for the avoidance of the Tower Card in the Thoth Tarot, is the complete appreciation of all things created. The Self must equally rejoice in not only the smooth and  fertile but also in the rugged and barren. Right and wrong are foolish thoughts of the mentally constipated. All things exist, because they are Created to do so. Thus, societies, that are based on Ruler definitions of what is Right and What is Wrong, are doomed to destruction. As history has shown, every Nation thinks it is the best, and everyone of them falls. To destroy others in the name of right, will destroy you.

 This destruction is illustrated at the bottom of the Thoth card as being the destruction of the Old Ridged Military Industrial Aeon by lightning engines of War. When one worships military might as authority over others and thereby resisting change, one is destroyed by that very god (Authority) they worship.  Thus, the jaws of Dis (Roman god of destruction) belch forth the flames of destruction.i.e, purification. Falling from the tower, the destroyed garrison of the military industrial empire, are those of man-made indoctrination. You may note that they are made of straight lines, i.e. unnatural, hence, they represent man-made identity.

The Ultimate reality of perfection is No-thing-ness, for only the "Waves" (disturbances or imperfections) in the No-Thing become something. Thus, only out of imperfection can existence exist. For instance, life itself, is always trying to achieve a perfect balance, but environment is unstable, and therefore, Life must continually adjust its balance. 

In metaphysics, we now know that One Mind who is perfection, is not seeking perfection, for that is about as smart as a fish in the ocean looking for water. We are all to be unstable, that is imperfect, so that we keep moving forward, seeking balance, experimenting in Self Awareness for that is the "Joy of God", expressed as "I Will BE"! In other words, to make a long story short, the Divine Creative enjoys being, and self awareness, requires self-discovery, which is what we spend our lives doing. Self discovery requires measurement, developed by senses, something the infinite cannot do unless it creates "Self within It-Self". Hence, we, the created identity of I AM Me, will always be imperfect, and thank god for that, as that means I shall always progress; maybe stumbling along to keep my balance in life's constant movement, but always experiencing self as it faces issues and solves them. The secret is to turn that stumbling into a dance of joyous passion, which some call, "enjoying the journey".  I for one, know that a diamond, the perfect and absolute stasis (righteousness) of the carbon atom, cannot dance! We must will to live to be, and will to die to become. Thus, the dove on the Thoth Card, symbolizes the Will to live (the spirit-feminine), and the Lion-Serpent The spirit male) the will to die. 

The fire of Yod (Hebrew for: hand) from which our worn-out self belief is consumed and purified, resurrects us as a rising Phoenix of purity. The trouble with purity, is that once the substance is removed from the furnace that purified it, impurities from the environment soon cling to it and it must be returned to the furnace to cleanse it. So it is for self-identity. Only the pure fiery spirit can cleanse it of all that is unworthy of Divine Self identity. Hence, Life and death are known to the Qabalists as phases of a single element ( Divine-Self-Awareness) that is constantly Real- I-zing itself. In the end, we all must fall to the pollution of survival thinking, to be cleansed in the bright fiery Mind that is Spirit, and then stand again, innocent and pure. For only in an unpolluted base-material, can new things be nurtured and grown.

WHEN THE TOWER CARD IS THROWN DURING A DIVINATION:
it implies:
  • A traumatic change will lead to new awareness.
  • the collapse of old beliefs
  • A new self arising from the ashes of the old.
  • End of a relationship; a possible divorce.
  • Freedom and liberation gained only by some cost in comfort.
  • Destruction and transition.
  • Loss of security
  • Deception.
  • Favorable new opportunities from loss.
  • Unsuspected events that demand you must "let go".
  • The breakdown of unhealthy, rigid, or false thought processes.
If ill dignified or reversed:
  • Stagnation
  • Lack of insight.
  • Caught in a negative situation.
  • Oppression and imprisonment.
  • Mental constipation, not allowing for the transformation/ change necessary for spiritual/emotional/ mental growth.
