On a brick wall, a pulley system is affixed allowing a bucket with a plant to be raised and lowered. My mother has two asparagus ferns hanging in large baskets from her front porch. When she takes them down for watering, it takes two people to hang them back up again because they become so heavy. This card has a reddish tone to it, and it symbolizes the great amount of energy being expended. We only have a certain amount of time, energy and money to spread over all of our obligations - both those we want to do and those we must do. Like all "twos," this card is about choosing; in this case, deciding how we are going to "spend" our coins (time, energy, money). If we overspend in one area, we may run into a deficit financially or physically. We must figure out a way to spread the weight of our commitments and aspirations to make the load less heavy. A priority list can help us stay on task and not get distracted by every little thing that comes our way. But it is healthy to realize the stress in our lives (like the tautness of the rope) keeps us active, aware and thinking. Life would be pretty boring with absolutely nothing to do.
