Two of Cups Tarot Card Description

Two is company, and when cups are involved it’s going to get cosy. Cups are associated with the heart, not the head, so emotions are high and valuable when they appear in a tarot spread. In tarot related matters, cards with the value of two emphasizes co-operation, negotiation and adaptation as a way to fulfill your wishes.

Upright Meaning

The Two of Cups is a relationship card, and in all matters romantic, it suggests a drawing together. If you are looking for love, a special someone could be around the corner. If you’ve met someone who takes your fancy, the chances are a liaison will develop further. And if you are already attached, you should enter a harmonious phase of your relationship. There is however, a caveat to the above, you need to be able to give and take, haunting your partner like a shadow could undo all the potential this card can offer. Traditionally, when the Two of Cups appears in a reading it can also point to a wedding. Nowadays, this could include deciding to move in together. The less romantically inclined may be wondering why on earth they have received this card when they wanted to know about a business deal or a career move. In such cases the side of the card dealing with partnership and co-operation can play its part. Could it be time to take in a business partner? If you are entering negotiations of any sort, the Two of Cups urges a mutually beneficial approach over hard bargaining and filibustering - if all parties gain equally from a deal or arrangement, it is more likely to succeed. Equally, it can suggest that work relationships with colleagues or domestic friendships with neighbours are particularly blessed. Once again though, the card carries a warning, good relations are more likely to be sustained if you avoid living in each other’s pockets.

Reversed Meaning

Oh no, it’s the terrible twosome! Can you and your friend, colleague or partner make any decisions without consulting the other one? Such behaviour is reasonable enough on big questions like buying property or speculating with large sums of cash, but did you really need to have a major conference on whether you wanted an egg or cheese sandwich, can’t you just pop down the shop for the paper without the other one? It’s time to remember you are individuals with your own personalities and needs. In business and social matters, you need to tread carefully, quarrels (even over small matters) could have large repercussions - tact is the key.
