16 - The Tower

Author: Anja Heij

The Tower represents structures in our life that keep us from fully being and expressing ourselves, it is imprisonment in any form. The Eye of Horus demands us to look at who we really are. Old structures in our life are ruined (the falling tower) and outgrown or artificial parts of our personality are destroyed (the falling figures and the burning flames).

After the ruin a more authentic person will remain and inner peace will come (the dove with the olive twig).

Meaning:escape from prison in any form, breakdown of old forms, destruction leading to renovation, complete and sudden change.

Reverse:imprisonment (physically, emotionally or mentally), disaster, following old ways.
