Two of Cups Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawing, the Two of Cups may come up straight, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers do like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic readers conduct their readings because a Tarot Card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
Merging the qualities of number “Two” and the qualities of the “Cups Suit,” the Two of Cups card would represent:
|Establishing a connection||Joining together|
|Coming into union||Strengthening the romantic bond|
|Making peace, truce||Sharing with others|
|Coming together to heal a severed relationship||Reaching a satisfactory agreement|
|Someone’s coming in or moving toward someone||Accepting different preferences|
|Having a positive response|
In a reverse position, the Two of Cups would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Lack of commitment||Different approaches that keep people apart|
|Going your ways||Refusing an offer of partnership|
|Breaking up, divorcing||Disharmony and conflicts|
|Dealing with inequality||Lack of balance in your positions|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If the Two of Cups would sit in a horizontal position, it advises you to consider creating a partnership.
You may find yourself thinking you can take it all on your shoulders. For example, if you have started your own business, you may even be driven by your ego and try to pull it off on your own. No one makes it on their own. Also, if you see one person as the face behind the brand, or the one that started it, there is a whole team behind the closed curtain or at least two more people who help the main character complete other tasks. If you get the opportunity to create a partnership with someone in the same field, or someone that has the qualities you lack, you should consider making the deal.
