Edmonton Tarot: The Tower (XVI)
Interpretation: When this card appears in a reading, the person is in for a sudden and cataclysmic change. An unexpected shock, revelation or blow to the ego is indicated. Like a bolt out of blue, misperceptions are about to be shattered. Old foundations are destroyed. This life-altering change may come from an external event or from an internal epiphany.
Image: The Alberta Legislative Assembly is one of Edmonton's most beautiful historic buildings. Constructed of sandstone and granite in the Beaux-Arts style, its interior is dominated by marble, mahogany, oak and brass. Alberta became a province in 1905 but construction of the Legislative Assembly was not completed until 1913.
Given the glacial pace of political change in Alberta, this is arguably not the best representation of The Tower but it's the one I've chosen anyway, LOL!
