Today’s love tarot card is the Tower. The lightening which strikes the Tower shakes our foundations. The appearance of the Tower can coincide with a dramatic external event—an accident or an emotional showdown between partners. Repressed rage suddenly breaks loose, shattering the illusion of harmony. At other times, the Tower symbolizes an internal shake-up. You suddenly realize that some cherished belief about yourself, your partner or your relationship is false. Your partner’s casual comment reveals a hidden dark side. It finally dawns on you that you unwittingly sabotaged your previous romances. You acknowledge that you have repressed some aspect of your sexuality. Or you connect the dots which reveal your lover is cheating on you. The Tower can also deliver liberation and transformation. But usually this only becomes apparent in the aftermath of the lightning strike. Occasionally, this card brings sudden freedom. Someone who has been single for a long time finally meets a lover.
Your professional and financial life has stagnated. You are having a hard time coping with the obstacles you have encountered. You feel like your efforts are going to waste – but this is not true. This period is a test for you; it is meant to motivate you to fight even harder for your dreams! Don’t give up; you are very close to achieving your goals, so you have to keep trying. You will be intimidated by the changes you will be faced with, but the developments that are about to take place in your professional life will teach you a very important lesson: No pain, no gain.
Today, as any day, will present you with opportunities to go against the grain. When you find yourself itching to speak out or stand in the way of what others may call “progress,” do so with caution. You may be right in your convictions, but are you prepared to withstand the rejection or criticism you may encounter? Sometimes it’s better to keep your thoughts to yourself and nurture them until the time to speak out is undeniably upon you. Drink some Green Tea and breathe deeply.
