Card Meaning: Two Of Pentacles
This card is all about a balance, just as the juggler on the card is balancing
with the coins, so we must balance between different parts of our lives but must
retain the balance throughout the changes. This also means that we need to keep
the balance between earnings and expenditure, between different projects and
ideas, between our whishes and reality, but always be ready for the change. The
waves and the ships in the background adds additional accent to the motif of everlasting
change and inherent instability of our lives. Also, we can see the horizontal number eight; mathematical symbol for
infinity, suggesting that the change is eternal. The lesson is that amidst the
constant change we must preserve the equilibrium of the mind and reason.
flexibility and adaptivity, having fun without recklessness, journey, changing
for the better, assuming control.
Negative: imbalance, chaos, inconsistency, bad luck.
A young man, in the act of dancing, has a pentacle in either hand, and they
are joined by that endless cord which is like the number 8 reversed.
Divinatory Meanings: On the one hand it is represented as a card of gaiety,
recreation and its connexions, which is the subject of the design; but it is
read also as news and messages in writing, as obstacles, agitation, trouble,
embroilment. Reversed: Enforced gaiety, simulated enjoyment, literal
sense, handwriting, composition, letters of exchange.
