The sixteenth card of the Major Arcana speaks of the collapse of the arrogant intellect, which, due to its ignorance, encroached on the undeserved mastery of the Secret Knowledge. Looking at the map, one can see how dramatic events are developing, changing the plans of people and exposing the Tower is illuminated by a flame, which symbolizes both the enlightenment of consciousness and the Divine Will. A bolt of lightning hits the tower, rips off the crown from its spark, and a purifying fire ignites. Flying two figures from the top of the tower upside down indicates that these people could not, and are unable to control the current situation.
A stormy gloomy sky hangs over the Tower itself, erected on a rock, indicates the ambitions of people, a flying golden crown adorned with bloody rubies is the personification of the ego. In magical rituals, the ruby stone activates the intellect. The lightning arrow means the moment of truth, because sooner or later the light will illuminate all the secret corners of the human consciousness and mind. Scattering stones of the Tower indicate that the accumulated negative energy breaks out. The moment comes for a reassessment of values and the road for change opens.
