The 2 of Cups is the card of true love and predicts nothing but positive interactions. When you receive the 2 of Cups, you can bet that intimate relationships are on your mind or will be of interest to you in the near future. Your knight in shining armor is heading your way.
It is often said by experienced readers that the 2 of Cups is the card of soul mates. Even if you do not believe in such a thing as true love, the 2 of Cups still predicts good relationships and understanding between two people. Therefore, if you’re hoping to find love you should pray for a 2 of Cups!
If you feel like the 2 of Cups card does not predicted soul mates then it can represent best friends who are about to play a major part in your life. These friends will be a positive influence and want nothing more than to work in unity with you.
Very rarely does the 2 of Cups Tarot card represent work. When it appears in a work placed capacity the 2 of Cups may predict that you’ll meet the love of your life during work hours.
Although the 2 of Cups is not a anyway bad card, it can appears as a negative or drawback. If this is the case for you, the 2 of Cups can symbolize sympathy.
Sometimes the 2 of Cups can mean that you feel sorry for others and are willing to let them step in the way of your happiness. For example, you stick around in bad relationships because you don’t want to upset your partner. This is an interpretation to consider if the 2 of Cups appears as a drawback.
The Two of Cups’ Historical Meaning
Historically, the 2 of Cups had the same meaning as it does in the present; it is the card of union, friendships and loving relationships.
The Two of Cups in a Love Reading
The 2 of Cups is pretty straight forward for love Tarot readings. If it pops up in the future or outcome position, this can mean that your partnership will go the extra mile and possibly last a very long time.
If you have asked your Tarot cards about someone’s feelings towards you, the 2 of Cups means that they are mutual. If you have recently had a fight, do not worry your partner will contact you soon and everything will go back to normal. Reading about an ex? They still have feelings for you.
The 2 of Cups predicts, for the most part, that your relationship is solid. However, if you feel there are things you can improve on and need more reassurance so that you can sleep better at night, I cover pretty much every aspect of love in my Love Tarot Meanings e-book, so feel free to check that out.
The only time the 2 of Cups is not good for love readings, is when it appears in a ‘negative’ or ‘challenges’ Tarot spread position. If this is the case for you, it can mean that you stay with your partner out of pity. Or it can mean the opposite; they stand by you because they don’t want your feelings to get hurt.
The Two of Cups in a Business Reading
As noted above, sometimes the 2 of Cups can mean that you’ll meet the love of your life through your work. Alternatively, the 2 of Cups in a business or career reading can mean that you will go into business with your partner.
If the above interpretation doesn’t apply, the 2 of Cups in a business reading can serve as a warning. Sometimes it can mean that your good nature will get the better of you when it comes to running your company. Are you finding that you’re giving too many discounts? Giving one too many freebies? The 2 of Cups can mean that this needs to change, especially if it appears in the outcome or future position of your reading.
