TWO OF PENTACLES POWERWORDS
The Two of Pentacles is all about finding balance between two of more things. Usually those things are around your security and finances. This card indicates you are adapting to the ups and downs of life and managing to keep the balance.
Balancing and juggling between responsibilities. Sometimes needing to make a choice to keep the balance.
A man holds two pentacles – one in each hand. It seems he is trying to balance them as he does a gentle dance. His clothing is colorful and behind him we see a turbulent sea and two ships.
The man is very strongly focused on keeping the balance. He does not seem to have much time to look up or behind him. Yet he does not look stressed – just very focused.
The Pentacles represent two of more things that we are trying to balance. Life responsibilities. Life decisions. Relationships.
Lemniscate around the Two Pentacles
This is the symbol reflecting the nature of infinity, harmony and healing. Even though this man is in the act of balancing he is managing to do it. He is at one with the world around him. He is managing to ‘surf the wave’ and not get drowned by it.
Red and Orange are the colors of the Base and Second Chakra. These are the Chackras of grounding, stability, foundation and inspiration. The colors are energetic. This man keeps the balance but does it with energy and good life-force.
The sea reminds us to not get overwhelmed by all the responsibilities we have. Life is about constant change and readjusting to the changes. The sea reminds us that life can be emotionally up and down at times but we can learn to ride the wave.
The two ships indicates our life journey. The ups and downs of life. But look! The ships are fine!They are upright and coping with the waves. Yes life can be turbulent but we can manage to keep it balanced if we get this card.

THE TWO OF PENTACLES REVERSED
When we are not in harmonious change and life hits us like a wet fish on the face then this card can pop up reversed. Imagine standing on the beach and a big wave like the one above coming towards you. That feeling of overwhelm and WTF!!!!! The Two of Pentacles has this ability to affect you if it is reversed.
I am seeing this card come up AGAIN AND AGAIN in readings for women.
As a gender we are totally overwhelmed. In the past 50 years we have strived to become equal to men and the same as men. Same wages, same conditions, same work hours. But wait! WE ARE NOT MEN. We are equal but we are DIFFERENT. Now many of us work full time AND come home to family AND do the cooking and housework AND organize everyone’s life and PLAN for the holidays and birthdays. We are all burning out. We actually do not know what it means to be empowered as women. Only now are we learning. We need to come back to a place of balance. If you get the Two of Pentacles reversed or upright with strong cards around it like the Tower or the 9 of Swords I strongly urge you to look at how you can bring balance into your life.
Two important questions to consider with a reversed Two of Pentacles:
Why is your life feeling so unstable and overwhelming?
What steps can you take to regain power over your life / finances / foundation today?
HOW DO I KEEP THE BALANCE?
There are many ways. You can ask the cards about what you need to let go of in your life. You can learn to recognize and understand your anxiety. You can choose to say no and be a bit selfish. You can examine your thoughts. We cannot control life. We can only control how we will REACT to it. In my opinion, practicing meditation on a daily basis is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Get a free app for your phone and start practicing today, even if its only for 10 to 15 minutes. You will feel the impact over time and life will feel less dramatic and all consuming.
