The Tower Lenormand Card Meaning and Interpretation

When we look at a tower from down on the ground, we feel small, diminutive. From up above on the tower, looking down, we’ve created a distance and boundaries. These two perspectives form the basis for all the meanings in the Tower Lenormand card.

As someone looking up at the tower, we interpret these larger than life spaces to be in positions of authority - which is why this card sometimes stands for government institutions and bureaucratic organizations. There is a sense of impenetrability to these institutions, a feeling that they are quite removed from the average person, and it’s inner workings are hidden and mysterious.

As someone from inside the tower, we understand that we must sometimes protect ourselves - and towers were used as fortresses to defend against incoming attacks. Sometimes solitude is a form of self preservation, at times we must take a break from the hectic pace of life in order to recover and heal. If we extend this for too long however, this self-preservation instinct may turn into deep loneliness, and sometimes arrogance towards others.
