Twos symbolize formation, polarity and the coming together of opposites. Pentacles are associated with the material world, acquisitions of wealth and possessions, our connection to Earth and Nature, sensation, matters pertaining to the physical plane and the element of earth. Pentacles can also be connected with practicality, groundedness and being realistic. Conserving and maintaining physical resources or physical energy. Saying “yes” to a new direction for home, career, money, resources or your physical body.
‘Recognizing and affirming the need for a new security base; nurturing and confirming a particular direction that would help to establish a different pattern of stability in my life; choosing and affirming a new kind of groundedness or inner stability; rigidity.” Gail Fairfield
The 2 of Coins from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot shows a young man riding a cycle across what seems to be a body of water while holding two coins in his arms. There is a sense of balance and caution in this card. The young man is trying to stay on top of his emotions while holding onto his practical side and common sense. I also get a sense of trying to manifest his inner desires by keeping the balance between the two. A challenging task but not impossible.
On the Rabbit 2 of Daisies, a black and white rabbit walks amidst a gray and black landscape while holding two daisies in its hands. The rabbit is also balanced on its hind legs. The entire image speaks of balance. It reminds me a bit of the yin-yang symbol which shows us that there is light in darkness and darkness in light. There is something a bit sad and melancholic about this image. The flowers are a bit droopy and the landscape is rather bleak. However in the distance there is a pale yellow light visible on the horizon; as though a new day will bring light and color to the scene. By balancing the dark and the light, the white and the black, perhaps the rabbit has made it possible for a new energy to manifest in its life.
My gosh, that is so simple it’s brilliant! If I consider this card from an internal perspective, looking at my own situation, then the answer is to balance what I have to do with what I want to do. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Balance, the middle path, is the key. In some ways this card is sort of a minor or lesser manifestation of the same energy represented by Temperance.
I think what I need to do know is focus on what I really want to do versus what I think I want to do to balance what I have to do. Sometimes those are not easy distinctions to make. For example, do I really want to set myself up as a professional Tarot reader or is that just something I think I should want to do? Do I want to return to a 9-5 type job or is that just something I feel I should do; another obligation? I can’t answers these questions off the top of my head. And the reality is that even once I do establish my priorities, I may learn that they aren’t really what I want once I’ve put more time and effort into achieving them. Somehow I would think these types of matters should be easier but I suppose they aren’t for anyone. This situation is not unique to me.
I think I shall have to spend a bit more time consulting my Tarot cards and seriously considering my options. I do want to manifest balance and stability in my life and still have an acceptable and enjoyable way to generate income. Perhaps it won’t be easy but I think it’s something I can accomplish once I actually get my act together. This scattered energy phase has got to end. It’s making me feel whiny and annoying.
