Two of Pentacles

Additional deck interpretation:

The Two of Pentacles points you towards a path of learning the art of juggling life's demands as you continue your journey through the seventy-eight passageways of growth.

This is the level on your continuous cycle of change where everyday tasks and fulfilling previous promises are at war with a need to prepare for an unknown future. This is when the burden of survival may begin to take its toll.

The Two of Pentacles suggests that you are in a waiting process, concerned about the future and how everything is going to play out at a later date.

You may decide that your mission might be to achieve financial success to improve your lifestyle but you are not exactly sure of how to complete this mission.

You might be juggling finances because more money is going out than coming in and you need to make some adjustments to get through a rough patch by coming up with new ideas on how to increase your income.

You may be struggling with several things at once, be bogged down with all the demands made on you, or by all the commitments and promises you've made. You need to look at what can be changed too take the load off your shoulders.

Numerical Number 2: This Pentacle is enumerated two, the time of waiting for the divine moment when you will bond together with your dream to put financial struggles in the past.

The Element of Earth: Pentacles are associated with the planet Saturn (structure) and the zodiac sign of Capricorn. The combination of Saturn in Capricorn requires that you roll up your sleeves and get to work.

Probable Outcome: You might decide to improve your lifestyle by increasing your income, which could include looking for a second job. It could also include practicing magic to entertain others and make extra money.

Your current need for increased income could be caused by a relationship that is draining your savings account, or you might be giving your family part of your income to help them out.

Your tight budget may be the result of dealing with school loans or other financial obligations.

Add to your financial juggling act a demanding job, prior commitments, many other responsibilities and worries about the future. You may need help to ease your burden.

Possible Outcome: Your lifestyle might be overwhelming you because you made some bad decisions. Your current debt might be hard to manage because of a salary cut, getting a new job that is paying less than your old job, or other unforeseen events.

You might be on a tight budget. There is more money going out than coming in, or you have taken on too much and reached your limitations and can no longer successfully juggle your responsibilities or commitments.

You might have a demanding job that takes the wind out of your sails. You have taken on way too much, wearing the hats of three people and feel exhausted and burnt out.

Your relationship might be on the verge of ending because of your partner's spending habits or you have found they have a secret bank account.

Or you cannot keep up with your family obligations because you have reached your limits and cannot give anymore.

Perhaps you can't keep up with your studies because you need to work, or you are having problems repaying your school loans.

Or you are practicing magic for the wrong reasons.

Then again, you might not be able to channel the Two of Pentacle's energies into your life. If this is the case, then you cannot balance your working and personal life and need to make some changes to put yourself back on track.

Timing: The Two of Pentacles predicts that an important thought of dedication to succeed is turned into action. This event may occur in months or years to come.
