The Two of Cups

The Two of Cups in the Tarot is one of the favorite ‘feel good’ cards that exist in the whole deck.

This card is similar to the Lovers card, but just to a smaller or less intense degree. This card is one of friendship, or of blossoming romance. If you have received this card then the energy of love, as a nurturing, spiritual, creative energy is blessing your circumstances. This is a card of fulfillment that is equal to that of the person or situation that you are encountering. More often than not, this is a card that specifically references another person.

A loving embrace, two souls intertwined like ivy - this scared union is the cornerstone of a natural affinity to another human being. Love blossoms, souls stir with feeling of affection and mutual understanding. Are you nurturing this relationship, could you be doing more? This card revels in meaningful connection - often it’s romantic - but it isn’t always. Feel with your soul the one who makes your heart flutter, who illuminates the best parts of you like a double rainbow lining the sky. Now is the time to extend your hand and open your creative mind, creating and communication will bring you wonderful things and greater levels of prosperity. 

If you are wondering about whether or not the new person that you have just met is going to be ‘the one,’ this card is saying that there is a genuine possibility of a beautiful friendship that could blossom into a romance. With this card, it is saying that you are on the same page with this person in multiple ways. You feel an almost kindred connection to them naturally.

The image on the Two of Cups shows two young people who are making a vow of affection to one another. They each hold a cup that is full of all of the good things in life. What more could a person ask for? This kind of friendship is one that most of us hope to find at one point or another. Some of us confuse the desire for sex with the desire for this kind of relationship, but it is not the same at all. It is somewhat easier in a sense to connect with someone sexually then it is to have this kind of ultimate connection with another person. In fact, many of us are afraid of this very connection.

However, here you are being welcomed to entertain the concept of having a soul mate in your life. This is a relationship to be honored, and it is one that develops over time. The serpent in the card represents the balance between good and evil and above them is a lion which indicates that carnal desires have begun to take wind. Again, this isn’t as obvious as the Lover’s Card, whose Union is unquestionable. This is the card that feels like the beginning of all new relationships. It is giddy, intense and exciting, even nerve-wracking. Together with this person you will achieve a great many things. The feeling of being simultaneously special to someone else is mind blowing. This is a very exciting time for you. Like a sun rise, love is awe inspiring, nurturing and beautiful.

Individually you are a very charismatic, compassionate person; you even understand the importance and healing power that is love especially in relation to other people. Another dimension to this card is its connection to the spiritual universe. When one experiences love, it raises our vibrations up. We get a spring in our step and we become so grateful for every little thing. Connect with Higher Source Energy in love and you will go far.

Some of us do not have an easy time allowing the entrance of someone else into our experience, especially if the relationship has the potential to be something great, worthwhile and fulfilling for a life time. However, choosing to love is an active experience. By recognizing the choices that you have, you are showing the universe what you can handle. Give yourself a chance to be vulnerable with someone, to open up the channels of communication and feel free to explore realms of happiness that you never thought possible.

This card is symbolic of a great number of possibilities; Love, proposals, engagement, marriage, and partnerships. One on one friendship, recognition of interesting and talented aspects of the self. Relationships develop, person to person.

The Two of Cups in Love

The Two of Cups is, in essence, a very loving card. It bares tidings of a lucky romantic future very clearly. This love could range from romantic love to a friend's love, to family love. But in this category, if you have done a reading on love or relationships, you will be happy to know that this bodes very well for you. If this card has arrived it means that if you haven’t met someone that you share this kindred energy with yet, you will very soon. And you will know it when you meet them because suddenly you will connect intimately on an intellectual level, then spiritually and of course physically. But remember, this is not the kind of relationship that moves fast. This relationship is a slow-moving, one that gets better with age like a fine wine. Do not push the envelope, take it slow, and give this experience time to blossom. You deserve to have a lovely experience, so have some fun with it. Be kind, be gentle, and be open and receiving as well as ready for this to potentially become something great.

The Two of Cups in Health

When you have received the Two of Cups in reading about your health, you should take note that many positive things are going to happen for you. This card brings into focus full balance of medical issues. This means that if you have been struggling with a disease or injury for a long time, that healing is on its way. Generally, this card has good messages of celebration in all aspects of life. With health, you will find the connection with someone else is so nice and interesting that you will forget the fear of not healing, which will ironically be enough allowed room for healing. Distractions sometimes are the very best medicine.

The Two of Cups in Work and Wealth

When you have received the Two of Cups in your business or work reading, you can expect for new doors of opportunities to open up for you in the form of new business associates or contacts. Though this card can be romantic, the main focus is on the actual friendship or partnership that evolves. You can expect to meet someone soon who will help you with your business venture, who thinks and processes as well as wants the same things out of work that you do.

Two of Cups Yes Or No

Yes or no? In general, the Two of Cups is celebratory - your answer is very likely a yes. In matters of couples and questions relating to another person this answer is concrete and resounding: yes, 100%, yes. The only time this card loses it’s assertion is in matters of the individual. The Two of Cups loves human connection, relationships which run through shared experiences like two magpies flying together. This is why it sometimes begins to lean towards no when your question orbits more individual pursuits.

Two of Cups Past

Experience is our potter and we are the clay, love shapes us more than anything else - and romantic relationships and loyal friendships can have a lasting impact on our lives. Who are the most important people from your past? The ones who helped you grow through their love and appreciation for you. Mistakes are valuable, like streetlights on a dark night, they show us the way - but repeating mistakes render their value nil. Sometimes looking to the past and the lessons we’ve learned is a good way of refreshing our senses so we can act with more purpose and determination in the present. Even for those no longer in your life, we can still recall essential moments like a student retracing an old textbook. 

Two of Cups Present 

The rose opens in the sunlight, its fragrant smell is heightened by the warmth of a spring day, its beauty coming into full bloom as its petals open to the sky. It may look solitary, but the flower’s development is really a process of collaboration, the sun giving it the energy to grow and become more. You too may encounter such a beneficial relationship, one that bathes you in light and accomplishment - sometimes what seems like a small, insignificant meeting becomes a pivotal moment in your life. The Two of Cups appears because it sees potential for an incredible partnership with another, romantic or otherwise. Forging such a deep connection takes work, but like a welder working hard to produce a gold ring, the effort will ultimately be worth it.

Two of Cups Future and Outcome

Happiness is golden and beautiful, it is a thread through your life, giving the good times meaning - so often, this comes most directly from our relationships with others, and you have one to come! See the love of the couple on this card, the chemistry of their loving embrace as hot and meaningful as the flames of a fire; soon, this will be yours too. If you are already loved up, this card sees a continued and sustained relationships - for those who are single, your soul mate may just be fluttering around the corner. Whatever your situation, this is a beautiful card to see in your future position - it may even signal wedding bells for you or someone dear to you.

Two of Cups Love Reconciliation

Is there anything more lovely than rowing your boat gently on a warm summer’s day? No rush, no hurry - just a relaxing journey down the stream of life. For the attached, this card represents just that; the easy and meandering joy of a life spent in love together. Like the ocean rolling out, your love will only deepen with time and your respect for one another will grow like a great tree. Emotional openness is key here, it is being transparent and truthful that will allow love to blossom further and further. Not in love or attached? No matter, The Two of Cups smiles upon you just the same - whether it’s a coming romance or life-lasting friendship, there are good connections to come. This card becomes it’s most beautiful in areas of love, so feel a deep gratitude for its appearance. 

Two of Cups As Feelings

Here, this card chuckles affectionately - you ask how another feels, but they feel just the same as you do. In feelings, this card is like a mirror - it reflects back the emotions of the enquirer. It also brings a soaring sense of calm and peace, any recent transgressions or arguments will be salved by time and love. The relationship will grow once again like daffodils in spring. When love is lost, The Two of Cups often speaks of lingering feelings - an old partner has not moved on, they still dwell in the memories of your good times. Feel the same? Now is the time to extend an olive branch and reconcile in glorious romance and love. 

Two of Cups As Friendship

 Thick as thieves, kindred spirits, two peas in a pod - all the things they say about the greatest of friends apply to your relationships at present. Balance, like justice’s great scales, are wholly even. You are in the midst of a lush, healthy friendship with many connections and many more to come. Keep open your trusting senses and continue to dispense sage advice, it is the reciprocal nature of these friendships which allows them to grow and grow like sunflowers soaring past garden fences and towards the light. The Two of Cups celebrates all of this, if you have considered a holiday or break with your closest companions, there could be no better time - experience the world with those you love at your side.

Two of Cups Tarot Card Reversed

Reversed Two of Cups in a reading

The Two of Cups in the reversed position signifies a need to control your emotions. Right now you are overly empathizing with people or getting stuck in a sentimental mindset that is counterproductive; because it has reached such an extreme that you forget yourself and what you are trying to do. Control your urges to heal and comfort everyone that you run into. Disagreements and misunderstandings can cause an imbalance in friendships or relationships, but that is normal. Do not let your ‘ego’ get in the way of what is right. Pay attention, listen, and don’t be so demanding.

Two of Cups Reversed - Love and Romance

A canyon of unspoken words, communication that’s fizzled away into nothing - how can you solve problems that haven’t been aired? The reversed Two of Cups carries serious news: you have disconnected from your partner. Where mutual love and respect once flourished, now is only resentment and simmering distaste. But the issues arise primarily from the tension of things left unsaid than from the things themselves, you need to sit down and have a real discussion.

Keep an open mind, try to foster genuine compassion via your connection like two wires making a spark. There are no guarantees here; you may find that discussing your issues proves that they are unsolvable or maybe it will be much easier to sort than imagined. Either way, there’s no point in avoiding this necessary next step. 

For those without a partner, the reversal of this card refers to emotional turbulence and stress which may be keeping you from connecting with others. Just like unsaid words, unprocessed stresses can poison the mind and block out the rest of the world; forge friendships, find people to talk to so that you can clear your head and open your heart.

​Two of Cups reversed - Family and Home

Family is representative of unconditional acceptance, with the rest of the world you may suffer embarrassment or judgement, but not so at home. And still, it seems you hold back - this reversed card reminds you that repressing feelings or misrepresenting your thoughts causes more problems than it solves. 

Miscommunication thickens sadness so that it becomes harder to combat, sometimes bullying exacerbates this state. Harmony requires equal input from every person, take the time to hear the perspectives of every person within the family unit and set about cooling any anger with the ice of thought-out words. Remember, reserve judgement and instead seek understanding. Love is the foundation of all family, allow it to flow between you and you can find light at the end of the tunnel. 

Two of Cups Reversed - Work and Finances

Like leaves falling in autumn, something that has gone rotten and it's impacting your work. It could be a business partnership, work handled with a colleague or a general sense of lacking comradery that’s fizzled away into something sour. This reversed card warns of disconnect at best and sabotage at worst; someone meant to be on your side no longer has your best interest at heart. Do not respond to aggression with aggression, instead seek out new, healthy working relationships and you’ll find that new seeds can still sprout up in the wake of what has died. Keep a keen eye on your finances, be savvy to scams and avoid reckless spending for there may be changes income for you soon. 

Two of Cups Reversed - Health and Wellness

Your muscles coil with stress, your bones ache and there’s a general sense of disease flowing through your veins. Sometimes the antics of life distract us from our one and essential home: our body. Even the best sports cars need servicing from time to time, now is a good moment to seek out a general medical check; watch out for health issues relating to lost balance like high blood pressure or extreme fatigue. The best technique for remedy is to build healthier habits into your daily life that will enable you to maintain a natural harmony within your health. 

Two of Cups Reversed - Personal Spirituality

The universe opens its arms for you, it has messages of love to whisper in your ear and yet you miss these words of guidance because you are turned the wrong way. You have become unbalanced, if you’re not careful you may fall; reopen your heart, open yourself to the universe and you’ll reconnect with the spiritual path you must walk. Remember this is a natural journey, there’s no need to force it, trust in your destiny and meditative thought are the best way to return to enlightenment.

The Tower

When the Tower shows itself in your reading, consider it as a blessing in disguise.

Change, albeit forceful change is being thrust upon you now and though it may feel like it is happening against your will you need to remember that this is for your own good. Often this card comes up when change has been in the works for some time and you have resisted or ignored it. There have been small problems that are increasing and situations are getting out of control. The Tower card represents the Universe telling you that you require this change to happen for your own spiritual growth.

The Tower card is actually a gift, even if it doesn’t feel like it at first. You see, up until this point, you have built your tower on a spotty foundation. The beams are rickety and termite ridden, the stone is old and falling down the mountain. You don’t want to keep living in a condemned building do you? Wouldn’t you rather move into the new mansion that is being built just for you? The metaphor that is the Tower card is clear: You are the rickety tower and it is time for you to rebuild. The Universe lobs fireballs at you and your original tower is destroyed so that you can begin to build again. The routines that you have created, the solace or stability that you think that you possess right now does not exist and it is time to create something more stable for you based on what you know now.

In our lives, we build towers constantly: The Tower of Love, the Tower of Friendship, the Towers of Right and Wrong. We build each tower with the information that we have at our disposal at the time, which is perfectly acceptable. But, as we grow up and we gather more information by bouncing ourselves around this planet, we find that sometimes old information is no longer applicable and new information must be applied. Sometimes the new can comingle with the old, but often times the old needs to be put to rest so that it may be recycled back into the Earth.

The image of the Tower in most decks is frightening. There is lightening knocking the crown off a building, bodies flinging themselves out to fall down into oblivion. It is not an easy image to feel relaxed about. But the image on this card expresses less the final result of the Tower and more the way that we feel when we are confronted with abrupt change. If you lose your home, if you lose your job, if your relationship ends suddenly or your partner dies; these kinds of circumstances can cause you to feel like your entire existence has been shaken like a snow globe. Your world is upside down and though you grasp, there is nothing at your disposal to save you. This is the way that we process change. It is cataclysmic and terrifying. But that is the process that we must go through in order to see the end result benefits of starting anew.

Sometimes, you are forced to start again, and recreate who you are now with the loss that you have experienced. If you can step up to the challenge, even if it is heart wrenching, the reward that is offered to you is eternal. For you will have developed personal strength of character, the knowledge of how to move forward even in the worst of situations and you will become more resilient than ever because you know that you can get through anything. This knowledge of personal strength that is bestowed upon you by the Tower will push you through many different scary situations in your life. You will fear less, and you will find joy more. With the Tower, your entire structure is rebuilt and you get to become brand new again. Trust what this card has to tell you. Consider what Towers you have built that are broken, and then ask yourself what causes you to hesitate about accepting that something is wrong and then begin to clear the slate. When you have identified why you do what you do, perhaps you will be able to allow yourself to heal from the broken and move onto the new.

The Tower in Love

When the Tower card appears in a love or relationship reading, then you must understand that the shape of relationship is no longer going to be able to keep the same shape as it always has. This means that one or both of you are going to go through something that is going to cause you to change every aspect of the relationship. This could be very positive in the sense that you may have been just dating and you are now moving onto a more monogamous feel in your relationship so everything will feel different. Or it could be that the time that you have spent together is no longer serving one or both of you. The Tower is not saying to break up, but it does instruct us to be aware of which part of the relationship is fantasy and which parts are based in reality. Make doubly sure at this time that you do not have a fantasy connection with your partner or potential partner, because fantasy blocks only build fantasy buildings and sometimes we are more attached to our fantasy buildings then we are real ones, but fantasies always bring the tower down when reality comes to light. Be honest with yourself; be honest with your partner. If you are not with someone and are looking, then you must consider the timing to be perfect to reconstruct who you think you are presenting yourself as while searching for your mate. Are you being honest with yourself on the type of person you desire to attract?

The Tower in Health

When the Tower presents itself in a reading dedicated to Health then you will find that bones that are broken are going to be on the mend. This is going to apply to any and all parts of the body that need assistance in reconstruction. Therefore if you are recovering from surgery or are wondering if the recovery for surgery is going to go well, the Tower card tells you that it is. Because the Tower clears out all of the possibilities for you to heal wrong, leaving only the possibility that the final outcome is that you will be well. Perhaps there is a possibility that you might have to confront the reality of your health situation first, but once you have done that reconstruction is always possible.

The Tower in Work and Wealth

Many of us live our whole lives striving to work in one place that will give us security into our old age. The economy is different in these modern times and does not always provide us the same security that we would like that emulates businesses of the past. Now we must be multi-taskers in order to function at the base level in business. The Tower tells you that you must make your entire life about your work, because if you build the Tower of ONE JOB FOR LIFE then you will have to go through the breaking down process should that job ever end. The Tower is telling you that it is time to focus on avenues of life that are not "money making" in nature.

Tower In Future or Outcome

The tower in the future position means what you have built will come crashing down, this could be a job or love. It is not necessarily bad, it is what you thought you were building has come crashing down and now you have a clear view and picture of some aspect of your career or love life. This is a “wake up call” and a false view was getting in the way. It's like a singer, who wants to be famous and quitting their job at the mall then wondering why things don't work out and they don't get that break. The tower can indicate that they are failing at auditions because they were under an illusion. Relationship wise, the tower in the future position could indicate that despite everything the relationship is not working and it is made or break time.

Tower As Action - Upright And Reversed

In the upright position, the tower can indicate that deep change is on its way and you need to go with the flow. There is something that needs to be determined internally and you may be going through a break-up or problems in a relationship. The tower upright can also suggest that out of a negative situation will be a positive outcome.

We all need “shaking up” at some point in life - and that is exactly what the tower gives you in the future position. This card in the future, can also mean that you will "want to feel" free going forward rather than stuck in rut and communicate something with someone that is worrying you that is constantly on your mind. The other element is that there is sexual tension when the tower appears. 

The tower reversed as action can mean that you should not give in and just start again. There is a temptation to just end something and begin something else. The reversal is a reflection of one's struggle internally and its best not to act with impulse. The tower as an action card can show the light (due to the lightening hitting the tower card). The other element of this card is understanding how you can avoid loss. 

If the situation has suddenly stopped or not been good the best advice is to not be quick to make any decisions. Wait! The advice of the reversal of the tower is to be patient. The tower reversed is also a card of over-reacting in a situation and you need to just keep with reality. It is also saying that you need to create the change. The reversal is in the results and that you can influence what happens from now on!

Reversed Tower

Reversed Tower in a reading

When the Tower is reversed, the process has already begun. Likely you are receiving a reading or looking for guidance because you can already feel that there is an aspect of your life, if not the concept of your entire life falling apart all around you. If you receive the reversal of this card, the most that you can do is cover your head and lay low until the building has come all the way down. The more that you fight it; the more hurt you are going to get. Therefore take this time as an opportunity to rest, and to ponder what you are going to create now that this tower has fallen.

Remember: The Tower fell so that you could start over with a new structure, do not attempt to rebuild the same tower. If you continue to move forth from this experience making the same choices and the same mistakes you will only end up back in this situation again and again until you learn your lesson. Take this opportunity to build something you have never built before. Seek out new experiences or push boundaries. What you are comfortable within your life may no longer fit. In love readings, the tower can mean that you have avoided a nasty relationship with someone who could show violence or unkindness. 

The Page of Cups

The Page of Cups shows up in your reading to represent either yourself and the role you have in the reading or someone else and the role they are playing.

You are sensitive, creative, emotionally resourceful, affectionate, tender and loyal. You are ruled by the desire to transform. Usually a youth or a girl under eighteen or even a young person who is unmarried with light brown hair or hazel eyes. There is a melancholy and passionate energy to this youth, one who studies hard but gets distracted easily by her imagination. This is representative of someone who isn’t necessarily just young, but is someone who doesn’t have as many experiences or is still developing in their character. We are all developing and changing throughout life, but this card refers to someone who is going through quite a few initiatory phases at once.

This could also be representative of someone who is willing to work hard for you if you are in need of assistance. There is a level of desire to be drawn to the arts, to meditation, to magic. The Page of Cups is young, true, but she is also exceptionally connected to her intuition. She feels things deeply and intensely. When this card appears in your reading, there is news, a message or even the birth of a child. This level of newness is rampant at this phase of the suit of Cups.

The image on the card shows a well-dressed youth or maiden who stands pondering a cup from which a fish pushes out of the water. This is a symbol of inspiration or an idea of the imagination. Behind the Page exists the flowing sea, a symbol of the subconscious. In this suit, water is the connecting force that is in all of us, and it connects us directly to the Earth and to the Moon and too many other transits. So albeit a young perspective, this is a highly connected time of your life. Even though right now you may feel frustrated or inexperienced, the time will pass, most assuredly. Now you must focus on what you are learning, so that you might become wise.

You are going to be receiving help in what is worrying you, and much in the form of cooperative energy. This is going to be an energy which moves you past the relatively emotional and young form of possessiveness or jealousy, even manipulation and you have begun to master the capacity to offer a level of loyalty. You aren’t really interested in the ways of the youth, the drama of what you used to experience with petty people and experiences. You are in a space of desiring to be clear of all of that, and the Page of Cups is allowing you to have that. What you must do right first is examine what it is that you get out of the petty drama that surrounds you, and then once you have been able to identify it, let it go because you have more work to do. You must begin now cutting those out of your life that are causing you to still deal with that kind of drama. When you have cut them out, your life will be more relaxed and you will be able to feel as though you truly have evolved from childlike things.

The Page of Cups blesses you with the ability to speak with emotional strength and sureness, and you are able to tell people what you do and do not want. Once you have let go of those that bring you down you develop an unencumbered existence that is full of sensual desire, as well as a balance between your fantasy life and how to make it possible.

One of the other benefits of having the Page of Cups benefit your experience is that you will begin to develop great ideas and psychic abilities through meditation and study. Important messages direct from God to you are on their way. Spend some time at the beginning and at the end of your day to ponder in quiet meditation so that you can listen to what is being said to you. The transformation side of your world emotionally opens the door for emotional opportunities. Consider who you can depend on, who in your life will allow you to express yourself freely. Then spend time with them.

The Page of Cups in Love

The Page of Cups in love and romance tells you that you are in the place in your life where you are transitioning from the child who has unending and fantastical crushes to someone who takes that energy and creates something real. If you are currently pursuing someone who you have been pawning over for a while, now is the time to take action and to try for it. The fantasies will serve you no longer. Push yourself to deal with what happens in reality. If they like you, then move forward. If they do not return your affection, then MOVE ON. The key here is to differentiate between what is good and real and exciting and what is only in your head.

The Page of Cups in Health

When the Page of Cups arrives in your Health reading, you have news coming your way. If you have been worrying about the results of a test or are just wondering the overall state that you are in physically, these answers are going to come in the form of information which will tell you the next move. Currently you have been living too much in your head about your physical health, so now is the time for you to take your concerns to the doctor and find out what is really happening. The news will be good, so push yourself to go GET the news.

The Page of Cups in Work and Wealth

The Page of Cups in Work and Wealth is telling you that you still have far to go before you can rest in your work life. There is a work ethic required in the professional world that you have not quite latched onto yet. Perhaps you are coming in just a little late, or not getting as much work done as you could. The Page of Cups reminds you to put your nose to the grindstone so that you can get all that you can out of your work situation. If you are an excellent performer at work, great things are in store for you.

The Page of Cups Tarot Card Reversed


Reversed Page of Cups in a reading

Sometimes in life, we act without thinking and then we do something that isn’t really considered smart. This is what is happening now with the Page of Cups appearing your reading in the reversed position. Perhaps you have not met your commitment that you promised, or you have been somewhat dishonest. Now is the time to gain liberation by righting the wrongs you have made, and then attempting to not make the same mistake again the future to build your character. The important part of your transition right now is the learning of the lessons. As long as you are learning, it will all be ok.
