|Thoth Tarot & Angel Insight Pack|
It's true, a child doesn't understand fully about consequences. But it's also true that their spontaneous explorations take place, in the main, on a small scale, and also that they are based on trust. A large scale from their perspective, perhaps, a small scale possibly to us. In this way of course, child-like spontaneity could be seen as more like The Fool. The trust, for the child, is the trust that the power of their parents to protect them keeps them safe in all situations. The most adventurous children, I feel, are the ones who have the deepest sense of security that the world is a benevolent, nurturing, welcoming place. Whereas those who distrust the world are more shy and passive. So that becomes, 'I want to have fun, and I believe that it is safe to look for it everywhere.'
Now I've worked my way to the Angel of Support, because the Knight of Wands cannot take action without this faith and trust. We trust when we get up in the morning that our feet will touch the floor. The Angel of Support, standing with feet planted firmly, wide apart,his arms holding up two giant pillars, represents the underlying faith and trust in a benevolent universe that makes spontaneity possible.
Affirmation: I give permission to be spontaneous, trusting that it is safe to do things that have not been planned.
