Which Tarot Card Are You?

I had medical procedures done this morning that involved twilight sleep and I'm really not alert enough to come with anything profound, but I remembered this tarot-related quiz and thought it would make a fun subject. I've taken it twice now, and both time I got the same answer: The Tower.

Yikes, the Tower? This isn't a card I'd have chosen for myself. In fact, it's one of the scariest cards in the deck, usually showing a tower being struck by lightning or otherwise destroyed. The meaning, according to CyberWarlock of Warlock's Quizzles and Quandaries, follows:

You are The Tower

Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Destruction, danger, fall, ruin.

The Tower represents war, destruction, but also spiritual renewal. Plans are disrupted. Your views and ideas will change as a result.

The Tower is a card about war, a war between the structures of lies and the lightning flash of truth. The Tower stands for "false concepts and institutions that we take for real." You have been shaken up; blinded by a shocking revelation. It sometimes takes that to see a truth that one refuses to see. Or to bring down beliefs that are so well constructed. What's most important to remember is that the tearing down of this structure, however painful, makes room for something new to be built.

So what does that mean to me? I'm not going through any kind of upheaval in my life or my thinking, at least not as far as I know. Or is it just a fun quiz that means nothing? Hope so, LOL.

Anyone else brave enough to take the quiz? If so, let me know which card you get.

This was fun! I am the Wheel of Fortune :-) Sounds good to me.

Beth said...

You are The Hierophant
Divine Wisdom. Manifestation. Explanation. Teaching.

I have to say the full description fits pretty well. Thanks for a fun quiz!

Sandy and Beth,

The Wheel of Fortune and The Hierophant sound much better than the Tower. Esp. the Wheel of Fortune. That's one of my favorite cards.

Glad you enjoyed the quiz.

I'm such a wuss. I actually had trouble answering some of the quiz questions first time around; one of them was a two-parter, half of which was right on me, the other half no way at all. I was the Tower. That made me suspicious, so I went back and chose the alternate answers in the three I'd puzzled about, and voila! I turned into The Moon.

I know what you mean, Mary Lou. Some of the questions simply didn't apply so I had to just pick one, LOL.

Still, I did the quiz twice and got the Tower both times, so... I'd rather have had the Moon, too.
