In this series, I’ll be going through the cards of the Wild Unknown Tarot deck one by one. As the box of the deck states, there are no rights or wrongs. These are simply my interpretations of the tarot card meanings, drawn from observing and spending time with the images. Click here for a directory of all the posts in this series.


Two of Pentacles :: Wild Unknown Tarot Card Meanings
Creator’s keywords: balance and change

A butterfly is positioned in the card’s center, wings open wide. The background is filled with slanted lines, meeting in the middle. There’s a sense of equilibrium everywhere: the two wings, two antennae, and the two lined background sections. And most notably, the two pentacles in a rainbow loop.

The two pentacles are forming a lemniscate, or infinity loop. We’ve see this symbol in several of the Wild Unknown’s cards (such as Strength & the Magician). Here, this symbol reminds us that changes can be big or small. We’re almost always adjusting to some form of change.

The Two of Pentacles shows the many ways that we juggle and balance in our daily lives. Even if we think we’re focusing on one task, there’s usually some form of balance going on. Some of this balancing is done consciously (for example, eating while driving) and some is done unconsciously (for example, we’re always breathing and blinking).

This card reminds us that there are multiple facets at work within any situation. Our task is to navigate these facets with grace (and to have some fun in the process).

In a reading, the Two of Pentacles can indicate having more than one factor to consider. Can you maintain the multiple factors at work, or do you need to simplify? Are you enjoying the balancing process, or has it become tricky? Approach the situation with flexibility and use your ability to prioritize.
