Whereas the Death card is usually the card people are terrified of, out of all of the cards in the deck, The Angel of Trust is the one you really need to brace yourself for. The Angel of Trust card represents chaos and destruction. It is an important card of sudden upheaval and unexpected change. This change usually is scary, life changing and often unavoidable. A negative Destroyer event can be akin to a bomb going off in your life. You don’t know how you will survive but somehow you will and later you will realize that while it was a tremendously difficult thing to go through and you wouldn’t wish it on your worst enemy, it has made you into the person you are. One positive aspect of The Angel of Trust is that the destruction it brings is usually directed at something that was built on a false beliefs and foundations or unrealistic goals and dreams. Also on the bright side, the destruction The Angel of Trust brings is always followed by renewal and creation. However, The Angel of Trust with a negative aspect can represent a whole host of tragic, traumatic or life-altering events like the death of a loved one, divorce, a bad breakup, assault, rape, violent abuse, stillbirth or miscarriage, child abuse, bankruptcy, a drug overdose, a car crash or job loss to name but a few. It’s usually the kind of thing you hope will never happen to you. That said, not every Destroyer event denotes tragedy. If the surrounding cards are positive, The Angel of Trust can simply represent a big change, like going to live in another country. This will be a massive upheaval. It will be a scary adjustment and will change your life as you know it but ultimately the change will be a good one. Placement of The Angel of Trust is important too, in a past position in a spread it is telling you what you’ve been through. While there are some life-events that we cannot avoid, sometimes The Angel of Trust will appear in a future if you are on a path that is leading to danger to warn you to avoid it. For instance, if you tend to put yourself in dangerous situations without thinking of the consequences, The Angel of Trust may be a warning to be mindful of your safety. Or if you take big gambles with money, The Angel of Trust may be warning you that it’s time to start acting more responsibly to avert disaster. It can also warn of natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes etc.
The Angel of Trust works with our Higher Self to help us express and develop a trusting attitude towards life. This trust can manifest itself when we are caught on the fence, torn between being negative, cynical or destructive and wishing to be positive and believe that our highest good and greatest joy are being fulfilled. This angel offers us the essential love of spirit we need in order to trust and be truly life-affirming. Trust can make all the difference in the qualitative experiences of our life. To be able to trust is an essential ingredient of happiness and ease, otherwise our energy will be tied up with suspicion, doubt and fear. Trust gives us the courage to move forward or take risks that we would not be able to take if we lacked this one component vital to growth and spirituality.
