We all wish to live. We all seek a world in which men are freed of the burdens of ignorance, poverty, hunger and disease. And we shall all be hard-pressed to escape the deadly rain of nuclear fall-out should catastrophe overtake us.

-Haile Selassie


The Tower symbolizes sudden, dramatic, unexpected change in one's life. This can be very painful but it is often an awakening and release from something that has been binding you. This may be a necessary experience that will strengthen you and leave you better on the other side.


You may be avoiding or stalling a very painful transition that will be necessary in your life. By putting it off, you could be sticking yourself in a kind of limbo or making the impending change all the more painful of a transition to go through.
