Tarot Card Meaning: The Two of Pentacles

Written By Advisor Rebecca Avoni

The Two of Pentacles, or Coins, shows us a man juggling two coins, and never was a picture clearer in illustrating the meaning of a card. The two of the coins suit is the card of indecision, internal debate, and doubt. When this card shows up in a reading, it always indicates that something in the situation is "up in the air."

This is an almost universally negative card in love readings. It means you, your partner, or both are having second thoughts. If the Two of Pentacles makes an appearance in your love question, carefully examine yourself. Do you have subconscious doubts? Pay attention to them. This card can also indicate the presence of an extra person involved in the relationship if more than one queen (or more than one king) show up in the reading. In commitment questions, this card indicates that the answer is "no" or "not now."
When your questions concern money, the Two of Coins very often means "You don't have much money to spare. Choose carefully where it goes." It also tells you to get more information. You are not going to be able to make this financial decision until you are better informed. Somewhat ironically, the Two of Pentacles also encourages you to stop worrying.

The most vital message of this card, however, is to call your attention to your own thoughts. If your intuition has doubts about someone or something, honor them, and explore their origin. You will be very glad you did.
