If you received this card, some new information has recently changed your perspective. It is going to take some time for you to feel grounded again. This is not the time to seek other people’s opinions. You need to go within and test this yourself. This is an important step of integration. Even going back to the original source could be confusing right now. Take some time to be on your own with these new thoughts. Let them seep into the crevices of your mind. Eventually this will become part of you. At that point, you can share it confidently with others.
The Two of Pentacles only interacts with the Emperor.
Emperor: Any cards from the suit of Pentacles can indicate an offer of a position of authority. This position is likely to involve finance and carry heavy responsibilities.
The Suit — Pentacles, Coins, or Diamonds
The pentacle is a symbol of earth magic. The coin is wealth and wages. The diamond is a symbol of wealth, pulled from the ground and refined by human hands into something enduring and elegant. This suit represents all things related to the earth. It represents the work of our hands. It represents those conspicuous signs of wealth that show us and our neighbors how successful we are, but this is merely material wealth. We can pass this on to the next generation, but it is worthless if we choose to bury it with ourselves.
Number — 2
Two is a number of duality, balance, and choices.
There is nothing to fear with an inversion. Mary K. Greer explains in her book, The Complete Book of Tarot Reversals, that an inverted card may be interpreted in one or more of these twelve ways:
- Blocked or Resisted
- Delayed, Difficult, Unavailable
- Inner, Unconscious, Private
- New or Dark Moon (if you are reading cards from a round deck)
- Breaking Through, Overturning, Refusing, Changing Direction
- The Opposite of the Upright Meaning, or Lacking
- Misused or Misdirected
- The Upright Meaning Backward
- A Rectification or Cure
- Magical, Unconventional, or Humorous
