The two of pentacles, is about balance of earthly things – wealth, business, and communication most specifically. Here we have an astronaut who is balanced in space, indicating the rich-looking, pentacle-adorned space ship she is attached to, and a satellite, which represents communication and more spiritual needs. It can be a tricky balance, complicated even further by blazing rocket boots! The infinity symbol from the traditional Rider Waite deck is hinted at in the curve of her tether, implying that the figure in question can handle an unlimited number of problems. Below her, a cold-war Russia and Alaska face each other under aurora-lit skies, representing outside conflicts.
This card cautions us to manage our time well, and encourages us to remember that if we do, we can handle all the things life throws at us.
In darkest space, a satellite and space ship orbit the Earth, illuminated only by the Northern Lights. Before them, a single astronaut hovers, her space-walk powered by rocket boots, and her safety assured by the conduit tethering her to the ship. A great distance is between her and the satellite, but she is unfazed, she knows her own power and how to rely on the equipment at her disposal…her ability is infinite, her life-line shows us as it curls into that symbol.
When this card appears in a reading, it is urging you to believe in yourself – yes, you’re being asked to perform quite a juggling act, but it’s nothing that you can’t handle. You’ll need to be diplomatic and flexible, remembering to manage your time carefully, and you’ll need to find some practical ways to achieve balance between your work and home life, but you can do it, AND turn this to your advantage.
