My thoughts– Okay, why are two of the darkest cards right next to eachother? In this card I see two people falling (or fleeing) the tower that is being destroyed. The tower is being struck by lightning and is on fire (probably because of the lightning). The sky is so dark, it is actually black. So I think it means destruction and ruin.
The book- The tower represents not merely destruction for destruction’s sake; it is a breakdown that allows for a breakthrough. It releases us from what no longer serves our best interest. It takes away what is no longer good or sound. The tower destroys something as we know it, thereby providing the raw material and experience to re-create something new.
The Universal Waite Tower– Although on fire and hit by lightning – looks like it might survive. The human figures falling from it, on the other hand, look like they are in for a rough landing. In this card, the focus is on the effect this experience will have on the person or people experience it, as well as on the structure itself.
Core Meaning: An unexpected event that changes everything.
Okay, so its the end of something, but you will survive. I think this also means a major change.
