2 OF PENTACLES OVERVIEW
Somewhere between asleep and awake, and somewhere between the forest and the sea… in this inbetween place she is able to feel the pull and the weight of it all. She has so many things that she needs to keep afloat. Her mind wanders to the moon, and she wants to give that her full attention, but then she is pulled towards her family and her finances and she also strives to give that her undivided presence. And she would have been able to focus, really she would… if it weren’t for that other promise she made that was tugging at her attention from the inside of her purse. And then here, for a moment, for the briefest of moments… she is able to hold them all in a beautiful dance and give each individual thing the energy it requires. She sways to the pull of the moon and the ocean, and to her fluctuating responsibilities, hoping to commit this see-saw balancing act to memory.
MESSAGE FROM THE 2 OF PENTACLES
With all those roles and responsibilities that you’ve been juggling, you may be feeling a little imbalanced. (Busy much?) Maybe you’ve over-committed your time, or you’re feeling the stress of handling your to-do list. Maybe you’re feeling stretched in too many directions, or carrying way too many tasks. Even though it seems like you are able to keep it all going, this constant need to find your changing center can be tiring. Needing to continuously shift in order to remain upright and balanced can slowly grate on your sense of well-being and your inner peace. (Read: Your sanity.)
Take some time to look at dualities and the opposing energies in your life. (Your time alone vs. your time with others, or your material life vs. your spiritual life, etc.) Make sure you aren’t investing too many resources in one area at the expense of another, especially when both are equally as important. Even though this card suggests that you’re likely able to manage it all in the short term, do you desire this much spinning for the long haul? Put some of your precious energy into prioritizing and ranking your tasks. and create a balance that you absolutely love – one that will allow you time to work, play, laugh and create. This equilibrium will not take from your reserves of energy, but will add to it.
QUESTIONS FOR THE SEER
• What task could you let go of today?
• What opposites or dualities are you holding simultaneously? (i.e.: wanting to give your time to family and wanting more time for yourself, or wanting to grow spiritually while also wanting things in your life to remain relatively the same.)
