Two of Pentacles Tarot Card Description
In the Rider Waite deck, the card shows a young man dancing as he juggles his worldly concerns. The infinity sign suggests that he can handle unlimited problems. The two ships in the background seem to ride the waves easily, that are indicating the ups and downs of life. Although the man seems concerned, yet he dances with apparent abandon, knowing that if he pays attention to the process as well as the goal, he can handle these problems.
