Raise a glass to the Two of Cups
In the traditional Rider Waite Tarot deck, the Two of Cups card depicts a couple in medieval dress facing each other holding huge golden chalices, while a winged lion hovers above them.
In the whimsical Housewives Tarot, a smiling couple in 1950s-style clothes hold hands as each stands in a giant wine glass.
Twos in the Tarot typically involve balance, harmony, and partnerships. The suit of Cups represents emotions and feelings. So when this card appears, these issues will soon become important in your life – if they aren’t already.
The Two of Cups may herald a need for balance in your emotions. In the traditional deck, the couple are oblivious to the beast lurking above them, and they’re maintaining harmony in their relationship in the face of what might be a threat or, at best, a distraction. In the Housewives Tarot, the red liquid in the glasses could be wine, but the couple appear calm and happy, not irrational or overcome by drunkenness.
Are you expecting too much from a relationship? The Two of Cups may be telling you to accept the good parts without demanding the moon. And note that the pairing in question may not be a romantic one—it could be a business partnership, or a relationship with a parent, sibling, or child.
Regardless of the type of relationship, this card advocates for fairness, reason, and impartiality. It may also hint that a broken bond is about to be mended via forgiveness and by leaving behind past grievances, or that two opposite types will soon be brought together.
Bear in mind that the Two of Cups is one of the luckiest cards in the tarot for relationships, whether romantic, business or family. It’s about raising a glass to each other and to what lies ahead. If you can’t think of a partnership to which it applies, a new one may be just beyond the horizon. And although it might not be exciting, fiery, and passionate, it is likely to be grounded in respect, honour, and mutual sharing.
