Two of Cups Tarot Guide

Share This Post

This post is intended to be a mini Two of Cups Tarot Guide. It is important to mention that the longer you work with the cards the more you will discover how they speak to you. For example, the Two of Cups does have a theme and traditional meaning but I recommend leaving “space” for the card to speak to you. Over time, you may discover that the card represents unique insights or themes for you personally.

  • This card is also about harmony, cooperation, and compatible personalities. 
  • The Two of Cups can also be about choices. The choice is decided upon and followed.

The relationship will have a strong friendship aspect to it or it will be a healing relationship.  If the 3 of Swords also shows up, it can mean a marriage break up or a coupling won’t go as planned.

Shadow Side of the Two of Cups

  • The Two of Cups reversed represents loving someone or something but the love is not reciprocated. The querent may be experiencing rejection. Not all emotions are forever but they can still be appreciated for what they were.
  • This card reversed can also represent that there is a loss of balance or equality in a relationship (social, romantic, or professional). There may also be distrust or misunderstandings between two parties that need to be worked through. 
  • If the querent is married, this card reversed can represent tension in the marriage but they are resolvable through good communication. 
  • In a reading about a professional situation, this card reversed speaks to a break in alliances that result in obstacles that may be difficult to overcome. It is recommended that the querent seeks other alliances to improve the situation.
