This change will be swift and sudden. Whatever happens, isn’t your fault, but you must deal with the fallout.

Reversed

When this card is reversed, the destruction The Tower brings won’t be as bad. However, change is coming.

If The Devil appears in this tarot spread, take extra caution. You might have inadvertently set things into motion. However, you also have the ability to make changes.

It could also mean you’re resisting a change that is inevitable. You’re under pressure, trying to hold on to the past, but it’s futile. Eventually, the metaphorical dam will break.

Love

Whatever’s going to happen in your relationship, it will throw you for a loop. This might be the end of your current relationship. It could mean a terrible fight which changes the way you perceive yourself or your partner.

If you’re single, it could also be someone new is going to drop out of the sky and turn your life upside down in a wonderful way.
