Everyday Tarot Deck
Upright: Unified love, partnership, mutual attraction
Reversed: Self-love, break-ups, disharmony, distrust
The Two of Cups shows a young man and woman, exchanging cups and pledging their love for one another. Above them floats the Caduceus of Hermes – a winged staff with two snakes wrapped around it – and is an ancient symbol of commerce, trade, and exchange. At the top of the caduceus is a lion’s head, a symbol of passion and fire energy, suggesting that there may be a lot of fiery, sexual energy between these two people.
NOTE: The Tarot card meaning description is based on the Rider Waite cards.
Love this deck?
Everyday Tarot Deck
If the Ace of Cups represents the flow of love from within, the Two of Cups represents the flow of love between two people. With this card, you are creating deep connections and partnerships, based on shared values, compassion, and unconditional love. While these relationships are still in the early stages, they have the potential to grow and develop into something that is deeply fulfilling and rewarding in the long-term. There is a mutual respect and appreciation for one another, and together you reach higher planes of consciousness and understanding.
When the Two of Cups card appears in a Tarot reading, you may be entering a new partnership, perhaps with a lover, friend or business partner. You are both focused on creating a relationship that is mutually beneficial and that will create a win-win situation for both parties. You see ‘eye to eye’ and appreciate what each other is able to bring to the table.
As a romantic relationship, the Two of Cups indicates a blossoming new relationship based on mutual attraction. There is both a physical and soul connection that leaves you feeling giddy and weak at the knees. You bring out the best in each other and lift each other up to even higher levels of potential. There is a heartfelt exchange of emotion, and you are both willing to do whatever it takes to support one another. In some cases, the Two of Cups can also refer to a marriage, proposal or engagement.
As a business partnership, the Two of Cups is a sign that you are both on the same wavelength and share a similar vision for the business you are creating together. You may not have the same skills as each other, but you create a beautiful synergy when you work together. For example, one of you may be talented at sales and marketing while the other is talented at managing the operations of the business. A partnership like this – built on trust, harmony, and mutual respect – is likely to succeed so long as you continue to communicate with one another and focus on your alignment together. (Though, it never hurts to also have a contract or agreement in place to ensure this dreamy business partnership continues this way.)
At its core, the reversed Two of Cups is about self-love. Love, in any form, starts with love for yourself. When you love yourself unconditionally, you fully accept and appreciate who you are, and you deeply respect and honor the truest version of yourself. You welcome a life of happiness and fundamentally believe you deserve to feel good about yourself. And when you come from this place of self-love, self-acceptance, and self-respect, you will have more fulfilling, loving relationships with others. It all starts with self-love.
Here’s the thing: if you don’t love yourself, you’ll end up projecting your lack of love onto others, becoming clingy and attached, attracting the wrong kinds of relationships to you, or worse, ending up in harmful situations. This is the shadow side of the Two of Cups reversed. On the flip side, if you love yourself, you will attract and keep only the most fulfilling relationships that serve your Highest Good and be able to completely give and receive love without attachment or expectation. So before you seek out your Prince Charming or tie the knot with your lifetime love, make sure you’ve filled your cup with all that beautiful love juice for yourself first. To find fulfillment in your life and relationships, you have to find the love within you and give it to yourself. No other person, material possession, or accomplishment can do it. It’s entirely up to you.
The Two of Cups reversed can sometimes indicate a break-up or a falling out. You are out of sync with each other and aren’t making the same emotional connection that you did in the past. You may be feeling a lack of trust and being open with one another is proving to be difficult. Communication may also be restricted and withheld and the energy flow between you has been stifled. To turn this situation around, open up, share, and hold a safe space for one another to honestly express your feelings and what you are experiencing. Even with one conversation, you can shift the energy flow dramatically.
