Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
~ Neale Donald Walsch
When the 2 of Pentacles shows up you may have been forced by circumstances to move outside your comfort zone… OR you could be contemplating some big change that will make you have to shift outside that zone. Either way, now is a GREAT time to embrace change and to stretch beyond what you usually imagine yourself capable of…
Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
~ Brian Tracy
Think of yourself as a fledgling just learning to fly. It will be awkward at first… but you were made to soar!
If you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness.
~ Les Brown
And the great thing is, once your wings have been tried and you know you were born for flying, you can’t go back to your previous small way of thinking and moving in the world. You are now – and forever – one of the movers and shakers. You are shining your light and the world thanks you.
Affirmation: “I am prepared to take risks in order to achieve my goals.”

The 2 of Pentacles in Love and Relationships
The 2 Pentacles is often said to denote stress. However, this is only true if you struggle with accepting change. Change and the need to make the right choices in order to move forward are part and parcel of this card.
The energy of this card can be very life-affirming and show that you are stepping out into the world as a couple, determined to succeed in the material sense of the word.
You could be moving or one of you could be facing a big career decision. One or both of you could feel a strong urge to break free from routines. This is an indication that you need to find ways of supporting each other through times of change.
The shadow aspect of this card is stress and lack of focus. Picture a juggler who is not able to keep all the balls in the air but keeps dropping them. If this affects one of you, it will also be affecting the relationship.
In the most intimate aspect of your relationship, this card could indicate that it’s time to start spicing things up a bit in the bedroom if you’re stuck in a rut. Or it could mean that one or both of you are too focused on work to be interested going there.
