2 of Pentacles

Meaning

The man on the 2 of Pentacles card is balancing 2 pentacles in his hands with a line of karma tying the two together to form the infinity symbol. The number 2 in the Tarot often represent other parties or things that are dual in nature. There is a balancing act happening here between 2 parties, or 2 things in your day or life at this time. You may spend the day going back and forth in various matters. The line between the 2 pentacles is an infinity symbol, suggesting the things you are balancing today will be directly connected to your karma. Honest and fair dealings are advised while you manage this juggling act if you want things to work in your favor.

Symbolism

On the 2 of Pentacles, we see a man holding two pentacles, with one in each hand. Connecting these 2 pentacles between the hands is a symbolic rope or tie that makes the shape of the infinity symbol, suggesting a strong connection with karma in this card. The man's face on this card is not too concerned but is not overly joyful either. He is focused on the task at hand, juggling the 2 pentacles back and forth along the invisible line of karma we all walk every day. As pentacles represent earthly and practical matters, this card suggests a balancing act between finances or material things. However, pentacles also often represent the practical matter of messages, so this could indicate a balancing act between messages or people as well.
