"Balance is not something you find, its something you create." - Jana Kingsford

Element of earth power: The Two of Pentacles depicts the ups and downs in life which normally happen when life feels extremely chaotic or distressing. Despite all the turmoil, you are still able to stay afloat and even carefree .

The Two of Pentacles is a card about balance, and more importantly, how to manifest balance. The Pentacles represent the material world and/or your reality. This is the area in which balance needs to be made manifest.

The appearance of the Two of Pentacles suggests that you are trying to keep two particular diverse aspects of your life in a perfect balance. This balancing act could involve your career, money, love and health. It is time for you to step back and apply objectivity to review the situation.

While you may initially think it will save you time, multi-tasking may just worsen the situation. Cut down on your tasks and concentrate on these two factors that are troubling you. You've done a good job at keeping things stable and balanced. You are also able to adapt well to all the challenging events and changes that require you to maintain inner focus.

The Two of Pentacles also touches on relationships that often challenges the ability or inability to provide the energy and time required to make your partner happy. Your partnership should be your main priority at all times, but it would be more easily managed when you have already adapted inner balance to begin with. If you do not attain balance, all the madness in other areas of your life could make it hard to devote your attention to your loved ones.

With regards to finances, you should pay more attention to your goal. It is vital to have a clear picture of your financial state. Plan your finances accordingly, control your expenditures and increase your stream of income to create a solid foundation for your life path.

In terms of life overall, this card is asking you to find a balance between your own well-being and your responsibilities. If you don't balance everything internally, you could end up being the last priority when you have so many things happening around you.

At times of imbalance: Two of Pentacles can mean that you are trying to juggle too many things in your life. Take some time out and reflect on all the events so far. Avoid committing to a lot of things since many commitments will overwhelm you. Financially, you need to learn how to live within your means.

Medicine: You may also need to take at least a short break to eliminate all stress. In case you are feeling that you can’t handle everything, you need to consider your own well-being and provide yourself with a time to breathe.

Mantra: Daily I am in balance.
