19. The Tower
“The first thing that an architect must do is to sense that every building you build is a world of its own, and that this world of its own serves an institution.”
- Louis Kahn
The Tower Card Meaning
When I think of the Tower, I think of an old, stoic building that has been standing for centuries. Just like the above quote, a Tower should be built to last and to house an institution or organization.
In a work context, the Tower often represents a large institution or organization. It can also represent the bureaucracy or red tape that comes with a large institution especially when the Letters are nearby.
In a love or relationship context, the Tower can also symbolize solitude or isolation.
