Two of Pentacles
by The 78th Fool

Card Meaning
Artistic Media
Artist's Bio


The ghostly image of a clown throws two pentacled planets up in the air. The planets are linked by a lemniscate and the clown must juggle to keep them in the air. The clown and the planets float within a vast environment of air and water. No dry land can be seen.


The clown represents our frequent foolishness and immaturity in dealing with our material affairs. I made him ghostly and transparent to emphasise our fragility in the face of trying circumstances. The pentacles are depicted as planets in order to represent everything earthly in our lives. This includes our carnal and earthly desires as well as our possessions and concerns. The fact that the clown floats over air and water emphasises uncertainty and the need to Ďkeep the ship afloatí.

Card Meaning

This is the everyday struggle that we all face to keep the various material aspects of our life in balance. More often than not, this entails juggling and the un-nerving feeling of walking on water. What If I drop the pentacles? What if I canít stay afloat? Just how do I balance so many conflicting demands? Although not exclusively concerned with money, this card can often signify the struggle to keep the books balanced.
