Symbolic Meaning of
Two In the Tarot

Meaning of Number Two in Tarot

Tarot Numbers: Meaning of Two

The meaning of Two is about balance. The perfect symbol for number two is found in the Tai-Chi-Tu also known as the yin yang symbol.

Here we see the perfect balance of dualities, dancing within a tidy contained circle - living harmoniously while each still maintains intact identities. The small counter-colored dot in each hemisphere is a symbolic reference to the fact that a bit of one is found in the other.

When contemplating the duality, balance, and karma we may find further insight by asking ourselves:

  • If my life is the result of my choices (karma) am I pleased with the results? If not, what other choices could I make to alter the effect?

  • What kind of opposites am I experiencing? Do I resist them or embrace them?

  • Am I in harmony or am I split by dualities - always torn between conflicting thoughts? What can I do to integrate my thoughts so they work together, not against each other?

The meaning of number Two is also a numerical representation of Karma. Contrary to popular belief, Karma is does not refer exclusively to destiny. Karma, simply put, refers to cause and effect. The number two represents this universal law of cause and effect.

Common associations with the meaning of Two:

Potential Personality: Those who resonate with number Two are honest, trustworthy and sometimes moody. These people are also very talented with plenty of wonderful ideas. So much so that they sometimes fall into distraction because they are often moving in (no irony here) two directions at the same time. They are usually philosophical by nature, and are the people you go to when seeking sincere advice.
