Welcome to another Tarot Tuesday!
If you are just joining me, let me explain the inspiration to begin these posts. In Texas, and all across the country, Taco Tuesday is a popular day when Tacos are usually 99 cents. So, I had the inspiration, or Angel nudge as I like to think of it, to create a Tarot Tuesday. Each Tuesday I will post a different Tarot card and give its meaning. I pray and ask for the right card that will bring a universal message.
I created a short video to demonstrate how I pull the card for the posts. If you’re interested, here’s a LINK.
Today’s card is the TWO OF PENTACLES.
The keywords associated with this card are: Multiple priorities, time management, prioritization, and adaptability.
It reminds me of the movie, “Groundhog Day,” where the man lives the same day over and over. Due to the shelter-in-place and drastic change of our daily existence, it feels that way to a degree. Like we are caught in a never-ending loop, just as the one on the card.
When the Two of Pentacles appears in a Tarot reading, it’s safe to say you are juggling your priorities, roles and responsibilities. For example, you may be a working parent, a general manager of a business, an administrative assistant in a busy office, or someone who works multiple jobs. This card notes you are doing an excellent job of balancing these different priorities, and you can take on whatever life throws at you; but this Two reminds you that the line between coping with these demands and losing control is thin. You need to manage your time, energy and resources carefully so you do not lose your balance.
The Two of Pentacles invites you to manage your time and your priorities carefully. Your workload is high right now, and to get everything done, you need to stay focused and productive. You may benefit from a ‘to do’ list, better calendar management and a stricter schedule. Basic time management is crucial to your ability to juggle these various priorities and keep your head above water. This card also reminds you to be careful that you do not miss important deadlines, meetings and other obligations.
This card calls your awareness to the concept of balance and those parts of your life where you have it (and those where you don’t). While you can strive for equilibrium, nothing ever stays in perfect harmony. For example, stabilizing your work and family commitments sounds fantastic, but in reality, your family might be more high-priority one week, and work the next. So, when the Two of Pentacles appears in a Tarot reading, see it as a reminder to be patient, flexible and adaptable as you try to juggle your responsibilities with your family, friends, work, finances, health and new challenges. Be ready to swap around activities or accommodate last-minute requests. And know that if you are succeeding in one area of your life, it’s likely you’re struggling in another – that’s just a part of the balancing act!
With so many people working from home and trying to manage separating work life from home life, this card is very appropriate. I like that the emphasis is on priorities, but also a reminder that those can change from day to day or week to week. It is up to each of us to try and maintain a balance during the COVID-19 crisis. What are your thoughts about this card and your daily life right now? Does it fit?
Thank you for joining me! See you next Tuesday for another inspiring message from the Universe via the Tarot Cards!
