The Tower - Whole New Ballgame.....................BUCKLE UP!

April 1, 2017 - I drug out the old Tarot Cards a couple of days ago:  Yesterday it was the DEATH card, and today I received the TOWER!   I know the Death card doesn't usually mean physical death but some type of transformation.  Not so bad.  However, my past experience with the Tower is another story.  I received this card repeatedly before my divorce back in 1995 so whenever it appears (especially if consistently), I know it is time to fasten your seatbelt for a rocky ride.

Shown at the left are two versions of the Tower card.  At left is from the Rider Waite Deck and on the right is from Bascball Tarot Cards.  I actually love the Baseball deck.  Now for the meaning:
According to the Baseball Deck:
Sometimes a bolt comes out of the blue and everything's changed.  Even in the worst cases, the lightning that brings destruction also brings illumination and a bracing demand for a fresh start.

When this card appears in a reading......Startling changes may be on their way.  Whole New Ballgame suggests various types of breakdowns and alterations, including endings, realignments, or disclosures of hidden aspects of well-established relationships, organizations or belief systems.  At these times, denial is counterproductive and resistance is futile.  You have no say in whether or not the change should happen; your only choice is how you deal with it.

Another interpretation from Seventy-eight Degrees of Wisdom: The universe and the human mind will not allow us to stay forever imprisoned in our towers of illusion and repression.  If we cannot free ourselves peacefully, then the forces of life will arrange an explosion!

If receiving this card isn't an April Fools Joke, all I can say is BUCKLE UP!
