Yes, this is a Monday morning kind of card.
I woke up this morning thinking about all I need to get done today. Some things I’m looking forward to, like Tarot readings at my private office, others I’ve been putting off in order to address more immediate concerns but I can’t ignore any longer (the dreaded bookkeeping).
Instead of falling into a place of panic or stress, I pulled a card. And, it was actually very reassuring to see this little juggler. I do have a lot of balls to keep in the air today, but I have the skills and flexibility to do it. As long as I keep my focus and stay in the flow.

Here’s what I posted for my Today’s Tarot Message on Facebook:
Today’s Tarot Message: Two of Pentacles. This is indeed a Monday morning feeling, waking up and thinking about all the aspects of our lives that we have to juggle and navigate this week…don’t get caught in a loop of worry, ducking and diving, get your finances and daily concerns in order so that you can get back to thinking about the bigger picture.
The figure on the card is smoothly juggling those two Pentacles, keeping everything moving and flowing, focusing on the most immediate concerns despite that wavy ocean rolling behind him.
So what might those Pentacles represent? Are finances a little rocky right now? Are you trying to balance work and life? Job and home? Are two people needing your attention? Are you working on several projects at the same time? When this card appears, you are handling all of those daily concerns, nothing is being dropped, and yet it is taking a lot of energy and all of your focus.
Notice that those Pentacles are caught in an eternal loop? See the infinity sign there? This says to me that we are gracefully juggling all the aspects of our busy life, but we don’t want to get stuck in that loop forever. It may be time to recognize patterns that need to be broken, so that you can find some rest, peace, and start to look beyond those immediate daily concerns.
It’s almost impossible to think about, envision or plan the future when you are using all of your energy to troubleshoot persistent daily demands. Stop the song and dance, recognize where you may be avoiding or procrastinating, and get your house in order.

Being the suit of Pentacles, we are in the world of money, the home, practical matters, well-being, things that make us feel secure and grounded.
Being a two, we have balance, the need to make a decision, duality.
So what might the Two of Pentacles represent in regards to a specific topic?
Two of Pentacles in Love: Your focus (or your partner’s focus) may not be 100% on the relationship right now. This card represents someone who has a lot on their plate, and is trying to make time for both work and love, and as a result both are being somewhat neglected. Also, it may be a good time to have a conversation about money, to make sure you and your partner are on the same page. If you’re not in a relationship, it is not the best time to look for one, other daily concerns need your attention first.
Two of Pentacles in Career or Finances: Finances need your attention right now. Things may be up in the air or a little unstable right now in that area, but if you can keep everything ticking along and make some good decisions when it comes to money management, things will even out.
Two of Pentacles in Well-being and personal growth: You’re heading into a busy time, but you have the energy and vitality to manage it well. Focus on getting everything done smoothly, call upon your powers of flexibility and adaptability, and then give yourself some time to rest and replenish.
