What is it you avoid looking at? What do you lie to yourself about? What do you turn away from, not wanting to see the cracks? Maybe it’s a drug problem, or a marriage going downhill or a health issue or a friend spinning out or whatever.Whatever it is you are invested in not seeing? Take a peek.
Today’s Tarot is Thunderbolt reversed, better known as The Tower and ruled by Mars. It’s violent upheaval. This is one of those cards people hate to see, but what are you going to do? The Tower is irrevocable—what’s is coming down is coming down and the only option you have here is either going down with or staying the Hell out of the way.
Needless to say, I suggest option two.
I have to admit, I haven’t always taken my own advice. The biggest drama in my life, I would have unquestionably seen it coming, had I been willing. But maybe we don’t want to acknowledge impending doom. Or don’t know how to fix it. Or maybe we’d have to make some hard changes, grow in uncomfortable ways. So we scrunch our eyes shut, put our hands over our ears, and try to block it out.
It’s when we have vested interest in not seeing the Tower comes to bite you in the ass. Foundations not built on truth eventually crumble. If you’re in the middle of it, you’re gonna get clobbered.
On the flip side, this perspective hands us the bright side of the the tower: minimize impact by being scrupulously honest, first and foremost with yourself. Being in that tower when it goes down is a function of denial or avoidance. It’s a righteous and predictable tragedy. Stay on the right side of it.
Don’t ignore the writing on the wall, and don’t sweet talk yourself into believing what you want instead of listening to your inner voice and reasoning mind, man. Get out before the place goes down.
