The Two of Denarius is also the Two of Pentacles.
A person who looks like a clown plays with two coins, as if inscribed in a huge eight. In the background is the sea with ships rocking on steep waves.
This is a person who treats life as a game, suitable only to fill time. He tries this option, then this one, without taking any of them seriously: it will work out — well, it will not work out — even better. And although the ships on the waves symbolize the violent passions that sometimes engulf his soul, his mind remains indifferent, he only observes, but does not participate in what is happening.
In the «Aquarius» Tarot, this card depicts two quarrelsome women who are engaged in a worthless dispute in which no one is right or wrong: «both are worse.»
When fortune-telling, the card usually means that both possibilities, the choice of which the questioner faces, are equal; whatever he chooses, his position will not change. And the mood too.
In an inverted form, it means that it is better to stay «the same» without changing anything, because the changes will be more likely to be unfavorable.
DESCRIPTION: We see a dancing young man in decorative clothing. He holds two pentacles connected by an intersecting cord that forms the infinity sign. In the distance, ships are fighting big waves, bravely trying to stay afloat. Element: Earth.
EXPLANATION: It seems that this young man is stuck between two options and is now trying to make a decision. The sea is raging, emotions are rushing over the edge. However, he seems to be able to balance the various forces affecting his life, and this dance of his indicates that he looks at the situation with amusement and does not allow his indecision to overwhelm him. If you pull this card, you may have a hard time getting new projects off the ground, but keep going. It would be useful to show more determination.
MEANING OF THE INVERTED CARD: There are a lot of events happening in your life — you have a lot to do. You will receive bad news. Your plans will fail.
LESSON FOR SELF-DEVELOPMENT: Look for harmony in your life. Obviously, you have an endless ability to balance several things at once, your life can easily become chaotic. Try to be more focused.
The Deuce of Denarius is a player's card, but it is also the card of a person who does not care what decision to make. It shows that we know how to adapt to the variability of life, and endure its ups and downs without unnecessary worries. Depending on which issue or area of life this card is associated with, it can mean dexterity, sociability, cheerfulness, spontaneity and non-triviality or the lack of one's own point of view, agreement, capriciousness and the habit of flirting or sneaking. As such, she encompasses a wide range of qualities from total indolence to the wisdom of a royal Jester.
WORK AND CAREER: Here, the Deuce of Denarius indicates flexibility and high adaptability — to the given task, working conditions, team. It can also mean that we are not too serious, if not to say frivolously, about the matter. In the latter case, the card may indicate irresponsibility and complete neglect of the entrusted matter. In its highest sense, it is a sign of liberation from the gloomy «duty of labor», routine, from petty care for a piece of bread, thanks to which we can finally devote ourselves with joy to our favorite work.
CONSCIOUSNESS: In terms of consciousness, we found ourselves, so to speak, in a state of weightlessness. If this state is replaced by a feeling of heaviness oppressing us to the ground, then this is the greatest relief. If it becomes protracted, it can lead to deep crises. Thus, this card can mean a huge relief after a period of life failures and troubles — or irresistible infantilism, which does not allow a person to develop his own point of view, and he himself sincerely complains that «no one understands» him. On the one hand, it is a symbol of the «trembling animal», unable to decide on anything, on the other hand, it is a symbol of the humble wisdom of the Jester, who has traveled a long path of knowledge and finally returned to the simplicity and impartiality of a child's perception of the world.
PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS: A wonderful period of carefree, unclouded joy — or a period of infantile frivolity and whims. Which of these sides will turn out to be stronger depends on our own attitudes and expectations — after all, capriciousness can be seen as simple-minded indecision, attractive precisely because of its vulnerability.
Deuces in the Tarot
The deuce is associated with the Moon and the astrological sign of Cancer. People born under the sign of Cancer, as a rule, have a well-developed imagination, are often shy, reserved, gentle, vulnerable, sensual, emotional and receptive. Most often, they choose professions in which it is necessary to provide help, treat, engage in charity and public work. Those born under the sign of Cancer love music, poetry, history, painting, dancing, theater. These people definitely need support, as they are prone to credulity, emotional imbalance, and oversensitivity.
The appearance of deuces in the schedule indicates the need for a choice. Most likely, this choice requires cooperation, teamwork, patience, balance, tact, education and diplomacy. The foundation laid by the Aces of each suit must be built upon further, as the Aces represent only the first steps. A gentle rather than an aggressive approach can lead to success. Many short trips are possible.
Twos represent Yin energy, which promotes cooperation, partnership, friendship, and receptivity. Yin energy most often corresponds to women, who can play an important role in those matters that you asked about before starting the fortune-telling. This is the waiting time when the seeds planted in the previous period will germinate. If there are deuces in the schedule, think carefully before making any important decision.
