What does the Tower tarot card mean in a Love reading?

Is the Tower a bad tarot card to get in a question about your love life?

In this series of posts, I am doing about the Tarot cards and their love meanings I usually start by asking: Is this card a good card to get in a love reading? This time, around I asked: Is the Tower a bad card to get? I didn’t ask if it is a good card to get, because when you get the Tower most people will assume the worst. It is a dark card and it shakes people up just looking at it. So when it turns up as a final card when you are asking about love and relationship you might be asking yourself; How bad is it?

The Tower often shows up when something has come to a completion, but the seeker is too invested to be able to let it go. In a love reading, the seeker might be unable to handle the realities of the relationship they are in. They might not be very compatible with their love interest OR they themselves have some behaviour they are unable to face. When reality hits it can come as a shock, however, it is necessary for the seeker’s highest good. The relationship might even benefit once the emotional turmoil has been dealt with.

In my experience with the Tower, it always shows up to push the seeker in the right direction. In many ways, it is like the Wheel of Fortune tarot card. When the Wheel turns the seeker ends up expanding towards their destiny. The Tower tarot card kind of pushes you there, against your wishes, by getting rid of all the things you think you need; which ultimately were only a distraction. The walls we build around ourselves come crashing down under the lightning strikes of the Tower. It might feel like you are left abandoned which couldn’t be further from the truth. You are being rescued. There are new situations and relationships to be had, but they were not to be found in your tower. The Tower had to throw you out so that the life you are meant to lead can catch you.

If you are in a relationship and the Tower shows up you might find out something about your partner that shocks you. You might even realize you are not very compatible. Most likely you are arguing and stirring emotional pain up in each other. You can either deal with your issues and grow as a couple, or you can separate to find out what you need.

If you are single and the Tower shows up in a reading you might have to face some truth about why love seems to elude you. In most cases it is fear of abandonment. Let go of your fear of rejection and you will find that the dating scene has a lot to offer you.
