The Wisdom of Buddha
I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.

The Hanged Man
The Hanged Man
Acceptance is the keyword of the Hanged Man, and with this card showing up it means you’re out of moves, so to speak, which is kind of nice because now the games can stop and you can get down to the real nitty-gritty. Your sexual partners aren’t perfect and neither are you, but you can still have a lot of fun together. The Hanged Man may not be in the best position, but he certainly makes the best of it – and this card urges you to do the same when it comes to your sex life.
Daily Love Tarot Card
Today, The Lovers are fickle, promiscuous, or both. Because of that, they live for entanglements. Unless you are cautious, they can pull you in with them. Don’t leave someone if your relationship has encountered a rough patch. Go only if you have tried everything and the relationship still isn’t working for either of you. If you haven’t tried, now is the time to give things another chance for either openness or for closure.
Learning the Tarot
Because of circumstances beyond your control, you have no choice.
In practically all renditions of the Tower card, disaster is striking or has just struck. The demons of madness and despair are released from ancient hiding places, and nature conspires with human failings to destabilize a society. The upheaval is collective and impersonal. Let us remember these images were created for the educated nobles and clergy — reminding them that they have the most to lose if the hierarchy is toppled.
Lightning is a fitting karmic payback for the guilt of those whose fortunes come from the exploitation or abuse of others. A modern subtitle might be “revolution,” indicating that through drastic social change, oppressed people can find renewed hope of better times. The Tower experience comes like a flash of lightning to topple the hierarchy of the old order, after which everyone can have a fresh start on a more equal footing.
In the Advice Position
You are the one to serve as a catalyst for change.
The card in the Advice position suggests a course of action which will harmonize what you want with what is currently possible.
With the Tower card, think of yourself as an agent of transformation. This self-sacrificing role is likely to create stressful situations. Your vision shows you that a radical change has already been unleashed by forces much larger than mere mortals, and therefore you are no longer resisting.
Now you may be at the forefront, acknowledging and accepting the bracing presence of the future bursting in on the present. Try to mediate the harsher parts of the changes as they unfold, so the most vulnerable are the most cushioned. Acknowledge yourself, as well as the others in your life, who are offering their resources to usher in a better future.
