16 Chaos (Tower)

Chaos is the Tower card in traditional decks. This card often causes feelings of fear and anxiety because it depicts upheaval and sudden change. The change brought on by Chaos is often unexpected, quick, and profound. The energy frequently appears dramatic and out of control because it implies cataclysmic, not catastrophic, change.

In Tarot of Empowerment, the Chaos card illustrates the destruction of a bridge amidst the background of fireworks. The destruction is about the false hopes and broken promises represented by the bridge. The fireworks in the background represent the celebration of sudden enlightenment about how to reestablish a new foundation built on truth and wisdom.

 

15 Entrapment (Devil)

Entrapment is the Devil in traditional decks. It represents the web that traps one in stagnation and negativity. There is an illusion of powerlessness. The individuals feel incapable of changing their circumstances and unable to make choices to disengage from the situation. This card represents those things that generate fear and hold us in bondage. The feeling may become so strong that it evokes a sense of despair that nothing will ever change. Entrapment may be the result of a pattern of making poor relationship choices, addiction, co-dependency or being cowed by another.

In Tarot of Empowerment a man and woman appear to be trapped by a spider web. However, there is an escape that they can find if they stop blaming others or giving their power away. Each person has the choice to stay entrapped or to leave the web.

13 Life Cycles (Death)

We all come from the One, and to the One we return. The Life Cycle begins with birth and ends with death. The end of the cycle is a time for remembrance, a time to grieve, acknowledging the pain of loss. Death is the final transition from one state of being to another.

Life Cycle reminds us to release the old in order to transform into the new. Going through the process of accepting loss leads to a new phase that allows forward movement.

In Tarot of Empowerment the hands represent the One of creation. The sacred salmon begin the Life Cycle as tiny eggs and evolve into beautiful fish who return home to end their life cycle.

Life Cycle seldom represents the physical birth or death of a person; rather, it is the ending of a phase, memory, or relationship that has caused stagnation in some part of life.

12 New Perspectives (Hanged Man)

New Perspective (the Hanged Man in traditional decks) represents the transformation from surrender to initiation. He willingly suspends himself from the tree, patiently waiting for a new way to experience the world. New Perspective pauses as he questions all he has known. He has no fear, knowing he can get down at any point. He surrenders old beliefs in order to create the new.

In the Tarot of Empowerment, New Perspective is looking at the world in a fresh way in order to achieve divine enlightenment. Once he has accomplished his goal, he will be initiated to a higher level of wisdom and understanding. He understands that through his own enlightenment he can help to create a better world.
