Info-Junkie Rampant

University Books RWS Tarot ~ Tower

In the Rider-Waite deck, the top of The Tower is a crown, which symbolizes materialistic thought being bought cheap. Poking around I find ambition that is constructed on faulty premises, structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth, rending of a House of Doctrine, the fall into the material and animal state.

Shudder. And all before I've finished my first cuppa. The card goes back to the 1400's and the first gaming tarock decks. It has been some years since I've had a Tower moment, I'm fine with never having one again. But then my eyes go back to the definitions, and I think how good it would be to have the scales on my eyes drop away, once again, giving a new clarity to the truths of my mind set. A mental Tower moment, I could live with that, my info-junkie rampant.

  1. Somewhere I read that the closed-top crown represented a closed mind not open to any other viewpoints.
