Card Profile: Two of Pentacles

Two of Pentacles represent the stage just before the utilization of the material resources, reflecting a set of actions for balance.



Two of Pentacles depicts a young man juggling two pentacles with a somewhat concerned look on his face, around which an infinity sign loops. The young man wears a gold-colored tunic over is reddish leggings and undergarment, and wears a long red hat, and stands before a turbulent sea.

The Pentacles here suggest the worldly concerns, which the young man balances and handles quite well; and the infinity sign looping around the worldly concerns imply that the balance and sustainability is a result of dynamism, and cannot be maintained in inaction. The color of the man’s tunic symbolize the material wealth he is aiming at, supported by his fiery passion for achieving that. His high hat suggests the magnanimity of his ambitions; yet the man takes the course of events as they come, with ups and downs as indicated by the turbulent sea in the background.

Time management is an oxymoron. Time is beyond our control, and the clock keeps ticking regardless of how we lead our lives. Priority management is the answer to maximizing the time we have.

-John C. Maxwell


Two of Pentacles represents a hardly achieved balance between the conflicting interests; perhaps the interest of the planned material venture and other areas of life, such as emotions or mental processes. Henceforth, this card calls for being active in many fields and not letting other areas go forgotten with the excitement of new venture. It also calls for remembering the ordinary flow of daily life in the excitement of the broader and new financial goal. Furthermore, the Two of Pentacles reminds that even in the manifestation of the most detailed plan, there might be downs arising from the circumstances out of control; and advises to remain flexible in any case.

A person represented by this card would be multi-dimensional, under the burden of, for example, family and business responsibilities at the same time; and although that might seem chaotic, he will manage to carry a load of multiple roles quite well.

Career-wise, the Two of Pentacles imply a crammed schedule, full of commitments and responsibilities, calling for effective time management and opting in for commitments that would deliver the most value; sharing the other responsibilities with the colleagues wherever possible. In the broader work context, this card might be signifying the development opportunities on multiple prospects.
In the relationship context, this card might indicate that the time has to be created for both budding and established relationships, as the partners are not able to give each other much necessary care and attention due to their busy schedules.

To sum up; the Two of Pentacles is a card of juggling with various responsibilities and calls for effective management skills to cope with multiple responsibilities.
