2 of pentacles tarot card advice main

Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind.” – David G. Allen

Bide Your Time and Gather Intelligence

As of right now, your future is brighter than it has ever been. In light of recent successes and new opportunities, it feels as though nothing could possibly go wrong. You can’t imagine a way that things won’t turn up in your favor, and you are already planning how you are going to celebrate the next victory. Perhaps you have a big competition coming up, and you are absolutely positive that you are leagues above your competitors. Or maybe you are being considered for a promotion at work and can’t think of a single other employee that works nearly as hard as you do. However, it is vital that we don’t make extensive plans into the future until we are absolutely certain that the desired chain of effects is, in fact, going to actually happen.

Before you jump into anything rash, give the situation a little bit more time to develop into its ultimate conclusion. You may find that your original plans won’t work at all with how the future actually looks. There is no need for you to rush forward before you have all of the information that you may need, as this opportunity is not going anywhere anytime soon. Instead, take this as a sign to bide your time, gather all the information you could possibly need in order to make a more informed decision, and come with a solid strategy. This will not only increase your chance of success in the long run, but it will also protect you from the failure that may come along with rushing into a situation that you don’t fully understand.

2 of pentacles meaning for relationship
Right now, there is someone in your life that you are completely infatuated with. No matter what, it seems as though they can do no wrong. 

You may not have known them for very long, but you can already tell that they would make the perfect romantic partner. If you already have a romantic partner, you have already begun to plan out your perfect future with them. You know the names of all your future children, have a dog breed picked out, and already have an idea of what color you want to paint the cabinets in the house that you plan to buy with them. However, this may be a sign that you are laying out very serious future plans long before you know whether or not your relationship will last long enough to see them fulfilled.

Take a moment to consider the potential barriers that could complicate these plans. Have you only known this person for a short period of time, and don’t know how they will perform in a long term relationship? Or have you noticed some red flags in their behavior, but have chosen to ignore them in order to focus on your “perfect future” together. 

While this does not mean that your relationship is doomed to fail, it is a sign that you may not be thinking very realistically. Instead, focus on tackling challenges as they come in order to strengthen you relationship overall. Once you are more confident that your relationship is healthy, supportive, and strong enough to last for many years, then it will be time to start making those big long term goals.

Two of Pentacles meaning tarot


A young man, in the act of dancing, has a pentacle in either hand, and they are joined by that endless cord which is like the number 8 reversed.

Divinatory Meanings: On the one hand it is represented as a card of gaiety, recreation and its connections, which is the subject of the design; but it is read also as news and messages in writing, as obstacles, agitation, trouble, embroilment.

Reversed: Enforced gaiety, simulated enjoyment, literal sense, handwriting, composition, letters of exchange.

2 of pentacles meaning for job and career
You may have recently noticed that things have been changing at your place of employment. In light of all of the chaos, it seems as though you have the chance to seize an opportunity that will greatly benefit you, and you’ve already imagined how nice it would be to come out on top. Perhaps you’d be in a seat of authority, or otherwise in charge of a large team of employees. With this authority comes a much bigger paycheck, and you’re practically drooling over all the wonderful things you’d be able to buy.

At the same time, you’ve skipped the intermediate step that would lead you to this point. The first question to consider is: are you absolutely sure that you want such a position? With power comes responsibility, and with responsibility comes stress. Most of the time, management can come off as distant and irritable due to the fact that they are not successfully coping with the stress that comes with the position. 

Even though you may have much more authority and a much bigger wallet, are you sure that you are prepared to take all of the baggage that comes with success? This may also go for a completely separate career that you’ve been considering; are you sure that you can handle the challenges that come along with a six-figure salary? 

This is not to say that there is anything wrong with setting your goals high; after all, there needs to be someone that is willing to fill these positions. Instead, take this as an opportunity to think a little deeper into this plan of action, as it is important to understand the potential cons as well as the pros.

2 of pentacles reversed main meaning
While it can be easy to set unrealistic goals that are not based on actual circumstances, it is just as easy to move through life without any plans in mind. When The 2 of Pentacles appears in the reversed position, it may be a sign that you lack any particular direction in life. Now is the time to move yourself to action in order to fight for your core values and achieve that which you want most from life. 

If you are still unsure of what it is that you want, now may be the time to start a new activity that upholds your beliefs. Do you value generosity? If so, perhaps it would be a good for you to start volunteering to assist the less fortunate. Do you believe in equality for all people, regardless of who or what they may be? Then maybe joining an activist group is better suited for you. 

No matter what you choose, now is the time to let go of neutrality and procrastination and move forward with accomplishing something, even if you don’t have a concrete visual of what that may be.
