Card #8 - inverted
2 of Pentacles (coins)
REVERSED MEANING: The situation calls for forced gaiety and simulated enjoyment. Put your best face forward and act the way the others expect you to feel even though other concerns or problems may be weighing on you. Attending a social event that you don’t quite feel up to can help to lighten your emotional burden and bring much joy to others.
The 2 of Pentacles reversed can indicate that you have a lot that you are trying to juggle, and can be a signal that you may need a break; even a short break of some kind is preferable to ongoing, unremitting stress.
Although the reversed 2 of Pentacles is generally a good card, the demands at work may have become a bit overwhelming. Don't over-commit, it is better to do a couple of things thouroughly and well than to do many things badly. If possible, consider some time off. If looking for work, focus. Solicit companies which are well suited to your background, rather than just applying to everything at random.
The 2 of Pentacles in reverse carries many of the same concerns in a love context as it does upright. If you are currently in a committed relationship, other concerns may be pulling your attention away from your beloved. Be sure that your partner knows how much you care and how much you appreciate them. If you are looking for love, be sure that you are not fooling yourself about how ready you really are for a deep relationship to come into your life.
This card in reverse tells you to watch out that you aren't "Robbing Peter to Pay Paul." You need to be sure that you are living within your means, and to do that, you have to know what your incomings and outgoings actually are. If you need help getting to the bottom line on this, ask for it. You cannot afford to ignore your finances and assume everything will be fine.
If you can find your joy at the wonders of what your body is capable of, you will find that your health increases greatly, as you will naturally begin to give your body more of the exercise it needs. Be sure that you have enough time in your life to think about and act on health needs. No one who works constantly every hour of every day, can be in balance. Everyone needs time to themselves.
The reversed 2 of Pentacles points to you being under pressure; perhaps too much pressure. Take the time to feed your spirit: no one will hand you the time, you just have to "carve it out." Every bit of spiritual learning and expansion benefits you. You have joy in your heart, down deep; get in touch with it, and share it, no matter how burdened with responsibility you may be feeling right now.
The Two of Pentacles reversed is an indicator that you are struggling to juggle all of your commitments. To overcome this, you need to do is prioritise and manage your time carefully. Invest your time only in those activities that have the most value to your life.
Additionally, the Two of Pentacles reversed indicates that you are finding it hard to manage your finances and your cash flow may be quite unpredictable.
When the two of pentacles is reversed there may be tension or strain due to extra amounts of responsibility but in this, you should not refuse to take on new challenges.
You should just be prepared for a slightly difficult time.
