You can find some explanations about the 16th Arcanum below.
Meaning of the Tarot Arcanum of the House of God
The House of God is not a very positive Arcanum. It heralds the failure of your projects. It can be a warning about one upcoming problem that you will need to deal with. This card is a symbol of conflict, disagreement and destruction. It symbolizes unpleasant events like bankruptcy, accidents, break-ups, failure, etc.
Hence, you need to be very cautious once you have drawn that Arcanum. Indeed, it also forecasts unplanned challenges that will be hard to overcome. Any domain of your light might be affected: Love, Work, Money, Luck… times of trouble are coming your way. The House of God is also a sign of tensions in your family, personal problems with your friends, your colleagues, or anyone you will have to deal with.
Drawing the major Arcanum of the House of God
In general, it is not the end of the world when you fail. What would be dramatic is if you did not draw any lesson from it. Drawing the House of God indicates that you have not learnt your lesson from the failures of your past. You might suffer from dire consequences.
In spite of all these dark tidings, this Arcanum can become a positive card if you can take its warnings into account. Forewarned is forearmed! So pay attention to these warnings or you might suffer from serious setbacks. At least you have been warned. To get out of the upcoming hurdles, you will need to control your psychic energy and focus it in the right direction… by making good resolutions once you have detected these problems, and by putting them into practice. Then, you will annihilate the seemingly negative influence of the House of God in a reading.
The positive aspect of the House of God is the warning you receive about upcoming developments. Said warning will not prevent that problem from happening, but you will have the opportunity to lessen its consequences if you act accordingly and keep in mind the good resolutions you have made.
