Complete Book of Tarot: The decanate system divides the 360-degree circle of zodiac signs into thirty-six equal parts of 10 degrees each. Each sign consists of three decans. There are twelve signs, so there are 12 x 3 = 36 decans. For thousands of years, astrologers have assigned the visible planets to these decans. Thus, each tarot card numbered from two through ten is associated with a decan as well as with the planet ruling the decan. In his book Mystical Origins of the Tarot, author Paul Huson shows how the decans esoteric meanings influenced the Golden Dawns interpretations of the cards.

As a result, the deity (Zeus in the case of ancient Greece) has decided to teach them a lesson by destroying their tower, thus forcing them to reevaluate their spiritual lives and start anew.
