Daily Angel Oracle Card: Two of Pentacles, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard
Two of Pentacles: “This card shows a farmer balancing two pentacles, indicating his ability to balance finances as well as learn new skills, as progress in his area of expertise creates changes in methods. As a card of practicing dexterity, this card indicates energy being directed with determination to accomplish something for job, financial, or personal security. New approaches at work or a promotion could require specialized training, but the person has the ability to pick up these new skills with ease. While others may struggle or resist change, this person moves with confidence, adapting easily to new situations and requirements. The farmer depicted is unconcerned about the coming storm, for he knows his job and has secured his barn, so he is prepared for anything.
In some cases this card indicates balancing two jobs for financial security, but with the resolve necessary to carry on until finances improve. It could also be a card of apprenticeship, learning from a master or other professional, or it could simply show the need to live within a budget, depending on surrounding cards.
Patchouli, an herb of growth, knowledge and balancing finances, grows by the barn. A fox, for adaptability, cleverness, determination and agility, walks nearby.”

There is a message of balance here, and also a message of choice; of weighing one’s options. There may be a polarity here – a big decision to make between two very different outcomes. The way that he is holding the pentacles indicates that really, the decision has already been made; within your heart of hearts, you know exactly which choice must be made… it is the choice that uplifts your spirits, even if it seems daunting or scary at first, you simply know this is the right choice for you. Notice that the man has a hint of a smile on his face as he gazes up at the pentacle on his right, his foot raised as if he is about to dance. He, the fox and the rooster on the rooftop all point in the same direction; this is also confirmation. There is more light in the sky on his right side, letting you know that your decision will be supported by the Universe, and that the future is bright. The impending storm in the background indicates that there is some urgency here; this is a decision that must be made soon, you simply cannot sit on the fence forever. Fox is quick witted and agile; able to assess a situation and pounce without holding back and losing his chance. He is asking that you do the same; trust in your instincts and intuition and take the reins when the window of opportunity opens to you. The doors of the barn are closed, indicating that one chapter is ended and a brand new beginning is on offer to you now.
You know what you need to do in order to move forward.
