Two of Cups

Interpretation

Two of CupsIf you asked a question about finding love, this card indicates that romance is definitely playing a role in the situation. The most common interpretation of this card involves a romantic partnership. In fact, all of the interactions below substantiate that.

If this card represents a romantic involvement, be assured it is a fully-reciprocal and equal partnership. This is the love of kindred souls, who partner and create something greater than themselves. This is not a fling. This is not one partner simply being supportive of the other. This represents two people who are in it together, all the way.

If this doesn’t feel like a romantic involvement, it could represent some other type of creative partnership, business, or friendship. This could be two siblings. The greater point of this card is partnership, no matter what form the relationship takes. Both people have equal responsibility. They have eachother’s backs. They are in this partnership to create something greater than they could on their own. This card represents solidarity, kindness, respect, and love.

The Suit — Cups or Hearts

The cup holds water, the heart holds emotion. Water nourishes, refreshes, revives. Emotions remind us we’re alive, give us reason to commune with others. Water can give life and take it away. Emotions can make us want to feel more and wish we could just stop feeling entirely.
This suit invites us to that place below the surface, to search for the Holy Grail, to get in touch with our creative side.

Number — 2

Two is a number of duality, balance, and choices.
