Tarot Card of the Week — Two of Pentacles


The Two of Pentacles for May 20-26:

In this version of The Mythic Tarot we see the skillful artist Daedalus of Greek mythology. He stands at his workbench, and holds up his two greatest inventions, the axe and the saw.  His workbench is supported by two large pentacles. (In Tarot Pentacles represent the building of wealth or the path to abundance.)

The items on the bench represent all the things he can do, giving all who see him the impression that all things are possible.

The number Two in Tarot represents a need for balance. The Two of Pentacles shows us that  you may be in a position where there are conflicting interests. You see two paths and you aren’t sure if you should complete one thing or abandoned it completely and start new.  You may also discover a need to balance work and family life.

The Two of Pentacles shows Daedalus hard at work and usually forsaking everything else but his art. You may want to rethink your position and choose the quality of life taking breaks from work to enjoy friends or family.

This card also represents the need to balance what you want to do and what you should do in your life. Just remember if you choose to do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.

The Two of Pentacles simply serves as a reminder that we have choices in life. It reminds us to stay alert and loving as we attempt to juggle our career, friends and family. It reminds us to be very clear of our priorities.

We tend to be distracted with our routines. The grind at work, or school or even if you are a stay-at-home parent, can make us forget to live life to its fullest. Seeing the Two of Pentacles can help you contemplate the best ways to use your time and energy, and help you choose what the best thing to do at the present moment.

As you contemplate this card, focus on ways to accomplish your goals with good time management or financial management. Writing a list of things to do is probably the best way to gain control of your time. Although it may be a bit hard to get into the habit of planning your day, you may discover it’s the easiest way to balance out your life.

The Two of Pentacles predicts change, that things are changing and you should be able to cope with this change. It indicates that you shouldn’t put all your eggs in one basket that you should prepare to do different things, or launch a new idea as Daedalus shows us with the items on his bench. He’s not working on one thing, but many things to accomplish an ultimate goal.

Stay centered, flexible and leave your mind open to all opportunities available to you. The possibilities are endless.






The Two of Pentacles came from the old version of Mythic Tarot.

The New Mythic Tarot brings together all the elements that made the original version such a necessary deck for all tarot enthusiasts–a deck that depicts the gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines of the Greek myths and a book that helps the reader explore them as familiar archetypal characters, whose experiences mirror the shifts and patterns of daily life.

This fully revised and updated edition of one of the few true classic book and card tarot kits breathes fresh life into this standard work and will be welcomed by long-time devotees and new fans alike.
