It is interesting that the last time this card appeared, as now, we were also in a Mercury retrograde. Has it been as challenging for you as it has for me? In the Two of Pentacles, we see a young man dancing as he juggles his worldly concerns. A lemniscate (the infinity sign) loops around the two Pentacles, suggesting there is magic at work. Or perhaps, since the Pentacles are about material matters, his financial dealings may have a spiritual dimension.
In the background we see two ships riding the waves – cruising the ups and downs of life. Perhaps this is not the smoothest sailing, but more like a roller coaster ride. Is it frightening, or is it exciting?
This week, you may need to juggle a number of demands. Although you can do so in a way that looks like child’s play, it will take focus and skill. You have those skills, just remember to be flexible and adaptable when surprises come your way. Look for the opportunities in any setbacks, and find a sense of fun in these challenges – for truly this card is about relishing your abilities.
Now is not the time to be rigid, nor is it the time to take on something new. Mercury’s retrograde may make the simplest things turn into a juggling act. Take special care of your finances. Pay attention to details and don’t take on any debt. If possible, avoid getting entangled in new contracts or legal matters until Mercury stations direct on June 20.
This week, be prepared for some interesting multitasking, but stay balanced, and don‘t agree to more than you can really handle. Instead, be fully present in each and every moment.
Focus your attention on what’s on your plate already, and remember that sometimes a side step, or even a back step is the wisest way forward. Dance through whatever obstacles you encounter, have fun, and remember to laugh.
