Two of Cups

Additional deck interpretation:

The Two of Cups points you towards a path of working to resolve developing relationship issues as you continue your journey through the seventy-eight passageways of growth.

This is the level on your continuous cycle of change when you are in the early stages of a new relationship or you have reached the end of ongoing conflicts and hostilities in a current relationship. You could also receive an unexpected apology or gift.

The Two of Cups brings you into a waiting period to see how things will develop at a later date with either a friendship, a partnership or a romantic interest.

This card represents a union associated with a secure partnership connected to trust, happiness, passion, and falling in love (the day someone tells you they love you or you tell someone you love them).

The partners in this union will share equal attraction and commitment with each other, culminating in a long-term relationship that leads to engagement and marriage at a later date.

The Two of Cups is also associated with close friendships and business partnerships such as a balanced friendship or a smoothly-running partnership. It also relates to business deals, contracts, or agreements.

Numerical Number 2: This number is associated with making a choice. Making the right choice is not easy, but making the wrong choice could result in a karmic situation or troubled times. This is also the time when you might be pulled in two different directions to make the right choice. You need to wait for the divine moment when you get a thumbs up from your higher-self to make the right decision to stay out troubled times.

The Element of Water: The elemental qualities of water are also associated with this card: the Moon (sensitive and intuitive) and the zodiac sign of Cancer. The combination of the Moon in Cancer awakens your intuition and guides you towards your destiny to find your true soul mate.

Probable Outcome: You are in the early stages of a relationship, or experiencing a union associated with a secure partnership that is connected to trust, happiness, passion, and falling in love - that might lead to engagement and marriage at a later date.

Perhaps you are at the end of conflicts and hostilities with a current relationship or have decided to renew a relationship.

Maybe you have received a long-awaited apology or an unexpected gift.

You may decide to build a close friendship or business partnership, either of which will be balanced, or you are working on a business deal, contract, or agreement.

Possible Outcome: You might be in a troubled relationship that is out of balance. You may be experiencing a 'Love is on the Rocks' situation and dealing with emotional pain that stems from a misunderstanding, or a grave trust issue, or a betrayal that may lead to separation and divorce.

Perhaps a close relationship or business partnership is unbalanced and you are working against each other.

You may be experiencing conflicts and hostilities and do not want to reconcile with an ex.

Then again, you might not be able to channel the Two of Cups energies into your lifestyle. If this is the case, then your past is blocking future relationships. You are probably engaging in a "friends with benefits" situation because you are not ready for a serious relationship at this time.

Or you have decided that you are not ready to start a business partnership because you want to go it alone, or you are not ready to sign on the dotted line with a business deal, contract, or agreement.

Timing: The Two of Cups predicts that your intuition and emotional feelings are turned into action so you can live your dreams. This event may occur in the next weeks or months to come.
