The Two of Pentacles show strong connections to life and magic. There is a man wearing a tall red hat, representing passion and magic. His hat may look silly, but he doesn’t seem concerned. His clothes are red and orange, another symbol of passion, but also of enthusiasm and youth.
The has two pentacles, one is balanced in each hand but also a green rope in the infinity loop. The green represents life. He is slightly balancing himself on one foot in order not to let the pentacles fall. He is trying to keep order, despite the lack of order behind him.
In the background, we can see an ocean with rough waves. There are ships riding the high rolling waves. The man isn’t concerned about how they are being thrown around on the waves, perhaps because there is nothing, he can do about it. This card shows that the tide comes and goes, waves rise and fall, but each ship must continue its own journey.
Not only is he not concerned but he also doesn’t seem to care. His back is turned to the drama. His concern is on his two pentacles and nothing else. While he isn’t worried, he isn’t feeling adventurous. His pentacles are the most important thing, after all, they are his source of life creation.
At the moment, the only thing that he has control over is the pentacles. They are balanced and this allows him to enjoy life. While his pentacles are in the air, life is simple, and he can enjoy himself.
We aren’t sure if he is moving with the pentacles or if it is the other way around. It is also possible that they are moving together in unison. It could also mean that as with the ships, as long as things continue, it isn’t important who creates the motion.
There is no sign of the man in difficulties, in fact, he may even be playing with the pentacles. He may find pleasure in his job of keeping the pentacles in the air. This is a good thing, as with the infinite loop, his task is never-ending.
Life is often out of balance when the Two of Pentacles is inverted. You are finding it impossible to juggle everything and things are falling to the ground. It is essential that you work out what really matters to you and what can be put to one side. What areas of your life do you feel are out of control? It could be that your budget or work-home life needs more balance.
The imbalance might be coming from within you. Your mind might be too focused on one area and not others. For example, you might worry more about what others think of you than how you feel about yourself. Make sure that your perspectives and ideas are in line with your new notions, let go of those that are no longer relevant.
There could have been a great deal of change in your past whether that was your physical location or who you were. Appreciate the positive of each change and leave behind any bad habits. If you had to make a decision, you will now be living with the outcome of your choice.
You may have to find balance in your life at the moment, perhaps between your career and your hobbies, or your family and your friends. If you find the right balance, life will be great for you. Be careful of doing too much for others and make sure you are giving yourself time to find balance.
If you maintain your positive ways, your life will turn out to be well balanced. However, if there are issues in the present, you must work on resolving them so that you can flourish in the future. Not everything turns out how we had hoped, but that doesn’t mean you will be unhappy.
The question requires more than a simple yes or no
