Two of Pentacles - Persistance

Two of Pentacles is always an interesting card. It presents a dichotomy of sorts, indicting balance or the need for juggling all the situations presented in life, like work and home, and making a harmonious change. Not an easy undertaking these days when so many of us spend our waking hours at work, or we even bring our work home, and we are always "on', available 24/7 with all our emails, technical gadgets and  gizmos. We are living in a age of distraction, which isn't a healthy circumstance that allows for a balance life, or mindfulness. This kind of busyness makes it more difficult to get things done effectively.

Living a pretty quiet environment here in the country, and semi-retired, I still can find myself unfocused,  having a somewhat unmanageable life,  especially when I take on too many things, which results in getting overwhelmed, leading to the frustration of being consumed by my feelings, that produce more stress and anxiety.

It is then I know I must do something about my condition, which is not beyond my power to accomplish and overcome. However, I cannot do it on my own, and I must ask my Higher Power for persistence and perseverance.

I can just imagine this guy saying, "Can't I just sit around and eat some of these grapes? Why do I have to take care of all this stuff now?" Heehee.
One year I kept up with all my daily cards to see which one most often popped up. It was the Two of Pentacles!

Yup I love grapes! Strawberry pickin time will soon be here. Best part eatin' as much as you can while you pick!

Interesting that the Two of Pentacles would come up often for you. I should take stock of that in my blog posts. Some cards never come up I know.

I was asked recently if there was a card I've never blogged about. It would be interesting to compare that one to the winner of the year :)
I love the picture. I reminds me of the Two or Pentacles from the Tarot of the Hidden realm:
I still can find myself unfocused, having a somewhat unmanageable life,"" maybe this way of thinking and living is so ingrained in our personality that it takes some time to shed this snake skin. :)

I think of it as peeling back the layers of an onion too. I don't think I'll even stop shedding that skin, my Chinese astrological sign is the Snake! But I think I am a bit of a cocoon striving to be a butterfly! Or maybe all those are just lofty thoughts, and I am really just a human being! LOL

Beautiful Two of Pentacles on the Pinterest site! Thank you :)
