I wrote a blog post many years ago called Rebuilding with the Tower which is still totally relevant and you may want to check out that post too if you’re struggling to interpret the tower tarot card, but in this post I wanted to share a different and even more empowering take on the Tower card.
Last weekend I watched Short Circuit and Short Circuit 2. They are still such great movies, and apart from the casual racism and sexism of the mid 80s (which honestly wasn’t much worse than in today’s movies I gotta say), they have really stood the test of time.
On Monday morning I pulled the Tower card in my own reading. I’m no stranger to this card, and I think most of us who are on any kind of spiritual journey have seen the Tower pop up quite often!
As I looked at the Tower card from the Fifth Tarot I had a bolt of lightning realisation that the Tower moment is literally what happens to Johnny Five in Short Circuit! 😮
Without giving away any spoilers, Short Circuit is about a robot who gets struck by lightning and gains consciousness. He becomes “alive”.
