In a reading about sex if this card shows up we'll see a Tower nature that has been riding high sexually at the expense of others. Because this nature's sexual habits and propensities are damaging to others, a price must be paid for its enforced and stolen joys. A harvest of ill-gotten orgasms, no matter how enjoyable at the time, requires the rapacious recipient to pay.
Cessation of sexual activities; loss of sexual prowess and power; sexual abuse abruptly halted; castration; STI's, STD's; shattered dreams of sexual fame (a porn actress has dream of Fame shattered); self-imposed celibacy; disgrace; ruin; adversity; distress misery.
It can also mean: Freedom from the bonds of lust; re-evaluation of one's mores; and the end of sexual slavery; sudden and rejuvenating love.
Unless Love erect the penis (clit); they labor in vain who erect it. We'll see the Tower card as the ruination of concepts/practices that were harmful, ultimately.
