Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - 2 Of Pentacles Reversed

2 Of Pentacles Reversed
Introduction: The 2 of Pentacles reversed can indicate that you have a lot that you are trying to juggle, and can be a signal that you may need a break; even a short break of some kind is preferable to ongoing, unremitting stress.

General: If you are feeling like "it's all too much," and that you just can't deal with all the things on your plate, it's important to pay attention to those feelings. Get help if you need it, as we are all in this life together, or give yourself at least a short bit of breathing space. You will go back to things renewed.

Work: Although the reversed 2 of Pentacles is generally a good card, the demands at work may have become a bit overwhelming. Don't over-commit, it is better to do a couple of things thoroughly and well than to do many things badly. If possible, consider some time off. If looking for work, focus. Solicit companies which are well suited to your background, rather than just applying to everything at random.

Love: The 2 of Pentacles in reverse carries many of the same concerns in a love context as it does upright. If you are currently in a committed relationship, other concerns may be pulling your attention away from your beloved. Be sure that your partner knows how much you care and how much you appreciate them. If you are looking for love, be sure that you are not fooling yourself about how ready you really are for a deep relationship to come into your life. If you are constantly filling all your time with work or with distractions, there may not be room in your life for a partner. Evaluate.


Finances: This card in reverse tells you to watch out that you aren't "Robbing Peter to Pay Paul." You need to be sure that you are living within your means, and to do that, you have to know what your incomings and outgoings actually are. If you need help getting to the bottom line on this, ask for it. You cannot afford to ignore your finances and assume everything will be fine.

Health: If you can find your joy at the wonders of what your body is capable of, you will find that your health increases greatly, as you will naturally begin to give your body more of the exercise it needs. Be sure that you have enough time in your life to think about and act on health needs. No one who works constantly every hour of every day, can be in balance. Everyone needs time to themselves.

Spirituality: The reversed 2 of Pentacles points to you being under pressure; perhaps too much pressure. Take the time to feed your spirit: no one will hand you the time, you just have to "carve it out." Every bit of spiritual learning and expansion benefits you. You have joy in your heart, down deep; get in touch with it, and share it, no matter how burdened with responsibility you may be feeling right now.
