Today’s card is the Two of Pentacles, also known as ‘Coins’ or Disks. This card features a youth playing with two coins. He has juggled them into the figure-eight fashion, symbol of infinity or continuation. One coin is heads up, the other tails — both flipping in the air. It is clear that until one or the other coin drops, the final call can not be made; there is more to learn before a decision can be made that will lead to appropriate action. This card counsels patience, so do not allow yourself to be rushed. The figure-eight image is a clear message that says, “No need to hurry. You have all the time you need to work this out, no matter how things appear right now.” This Card implies that changes are in the works and it would be better to stay calm until you have more information. Everything is in flux at this time.
This card is a cautionary signpost. Just yesterday, the Ace of Pentacles showed an image of a man looking at his cargo (efforts) preparing to sail off to foreign ports and return with his fortune. You will notice if you look closely that those same ships can be seen in the background of this card, letting us know that we are still ‘at sea’; in spite of any impatience to the contrary, sometimes we have to wait a bit for our efforts to reach the shore (fruition). Don’t allow yourself to be coaxed into premature decisions or actions. Ask yourself — are all the facts in yet? Or is the coin still flipping in the air? There is no need to be goaded into premature decisions or actions. The Two of Coins advises us not to choose anything definitive for the time being. Give yourself a little more time to sort out your feelings and any mixed messages you may be receiving from others. Act only when you are able to do so with a unified heart and mind.
Today, may you pump the brakes just a bit until all the facts are available.
