The Two of Pentacles in the Cosmic Tarot by Norbert Losche depicts a young man balancing on a shape that forms an infinity symbol. In the background is a single-sailed ship with a Yin-Yang on its sail. On one side of the man is a snake, on the other, a garden. The man is wearing a shirt that has two pentacles on it.
The two of pentacles is about balance. The ship is an obvious symbol of travel, but they yin-yang on the sail shows us that this is an inner journey, one of the subconscious.
The card is talking about balancing aspects of our life as we progress on our path. Many people interpret the pentacles suit as being about earthy things. Money, or basic requirements of living, such as home and shelter.
You need to strike an inner balance
that is harmonious…
Keeping that in mind, from a geek’s perspective it is a good interpretation to say this card is saying to be self-aware of your surroundings at home. Perhaps your work is pulling you away too much, and you need to strike an inner balance that is harmonious. If you have this card in your reading, it’s time to take a good long look at what your priorities are. Perhaps you spend too much time at work, and not enough time doing things you enjoy. Or in the other extreme, perhaps your home life is more demanding than expected, and you need a balance another direction. Regardless, the two reminds us that balance is important and we must focus on cutting back on what weighs heavily on our shoulders and putting more emphasis on what we’re ignoring.
Today I encourage us all, geek or not, to look at your life and see what is out of balance. What can you do to remedy that? Meditate on what you can do to get the elements of your life back on balance.
