Most view this card as foreboding in their readings.When you watch television programs where they have a tarot reader, (Usually some “creepy” or “spooky” person a a carnival or sitting hunched over in a dark place with a shawl adn a crystal ball), they pull the Death card and The Tower card and scare the mess out of the person for whom they are reading.
However in reality, typically different from television entertainment, The Tower indicates something more credible and realistic and less threatening. It is about something being explosively blown apart, broken down or simply falling apart and crumbling because it was built on a false foundation. It can be a belief, a relationship, an entity such as a business or a situation. You have had warning but denied it and now things will no longer continue under such a false foundation.
What is positive about this is that with the destruction comes the opportunity to rebuild an honest, credible, solid, lasting structure (belief, business, relationship, situation etc.). Now you can see the truth ad now you can make something of permanence and strength.
