Step One: Tarot for Beginners, THE TOWER
Tarot for Beginners deck, THE TOWER.
A tower is rising up out of a raging sea. There is a large crack running from the top down about a third of the way. The sky is grey and full of stormclouds and jagged yellow lightning is striking around the tower, so that the top is on fire. The tower is crumbling into the sea. Two figures have fallen from the top, falling towards the water. On the left a woman in a blue dress is falling headfirst towards the water, screaming, looking shocked. On the right a man in red is falling, his hands flung up towards the sky. Below them the stormy waters thrash against the bottom of the tower, threatening to drag it into the sea.
