Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning – 2 Of Pentacles Reversed
Introduction: The 2 of Pentacles reversed can indicate that you have a lot that you are trying to juggle, and can be a signal that you may need a break; even a short break of some kind is preferable to ongoing, unremitting stress.
General: If you are feeling like "it’s all too much," and that you just can’t deal with all the things on your plate, it’s important to pay attention to those feelings. Get help if you need it, as we are all in this life together, or give yourself at least a short bit of breathing space. You will go back to things renewed.
Work: Although the reversed 2 of Pentacles is generally a good card, the demands at work may have become a bit overwhelming. Don’t over-commit, it is better to do a couple of things thoroughly and well than to do many things badly. If possible, consider some time off. If looking for work, focus. Solicit companies which are well suited to your background, rather than just applying to everything at random.
Love: The 2 of Pentacles in reverse carries many of the same concerns in a love context as it does upright. If you are currently in a committed relationship, other concerns may be pulling your attention away from your beloved. Be sure that your partner knows how much you care and how much you appreciate them. If you are looking for love, be sure that you are not fooling yourself about how ready you really are for a deep relationship to come into your life. If you are constantly filling all your time with work or with distractions, there may not be room in your life for a partner. Evaluate.
Finances: This card in reverse tells you to watch out that you aren’t "Robbing Peter to Pay Paul." You need to be sure that you are living within your means, and to do that, you have to know what your incomings and outgoings actually are. If you need help getting to the bottom line on this, ask for it. You cannot afford to ignore your finances and assume everything will be fine.
Health: If you can find your joy at the wonders of what your body is capable of, you will find that your health increases greatly, as you will naturally begin to give your body more of the exercise it needs. Be sure that you have enough time in your life to think about and act on health needs. No one who works constantly every hour of every day, can be in balance. Everyone needs time to themselves.
Spirituality: The reversed 2 of Pentacles points to you being under pressure; perhaps too much pressure. Take the time to feed your spirit: no one will hand you the time, you just have to "carve it out." Every bit of spiritual learning and expansion benefits you. You have joy in your heart, down deep; get in touch with it, and share it, no matter how burdened with responsibility you may be feeling right now.

The Card of the Day: The Two of Pentacles (Reversed)
The Two of Pentacles is a card of juggling unexpected events. These events aren’t bad or good, they are merely unpredictable. The infinity symbol binding the two coins represents the eternal truth that life does not always go according to our plans. The juggler on the card survives the undulations of fortune because he remains flexible and adaptable. This is symbolized by the boats that remain afloat amid the tumultuous waters.
How do you respond when things don’t go according to plan? Do you get angry and prepare to fight? Do you retreat and hide? Are you able to remain good humored? Can you laugh at it?
The juggler is an entertainer. He takes lemons and makes lemonade. He takes the troubles life sends him and turns them into teachable moments that uplift the moods of others. The Two of Pentacles reminds us not to fight the waves the sea hurls at us, but to float above them. Know that in life there are going to be waves. Don’t take them personally! “Why is this happening to me,” should become “Thank you Spirit for sending me this valuable lesson to remain adaptable.” In nature, life that cannot adapt to change becomes extinct.
Today be flexible! Let unexpected eventualities roll off your back. Learn to laugh at them and use them as a way to strengthen yourself and others. Perhaps all you need to do is unexpectedly cheer someone up today. You can juggle anything life sends your way with grace and ease.
Upright or reversed the Two of Pentacles remains a card of unpredictability. When reversed, the Two of Pentacles warn you not to be too careless in matters of stability or financial security. Pay attention to the details instead of glossing over life with broad strokes. Check and recheck your bills, automatic payments, accounts and contracts. Sometimes this card appears to indicate that something that you have been avoiding or neglecting needs more care. Two of Pentacles reversed can highlight work that needs to be re-done, or less sloppily. If you focus on refining the details, you wont regret it. Prevention is the best cure. Try to anticipate issues that could arise with projects and deadlines and get ahead of the curve.
Expect life to make a few waves today. The best way to handle this unpredictability is with flexibility and good humor. Remember not to fight through the waves, but to sail over them. Sometimes, the Two of Pentacles reversed heralds seemingly disappointing situations that end up being blessings in the long run. Be flexible today…..the random occurrences you encounter will only be an issue if your expectations remain fixed. On the most basic level, this card can simply indicate a need to confront financial situations that need your attention and get them organized and in order.
