Two of Cups Meaning
In this post, I’ll be discussing the the Two of Cups meaning for health, advice, outcome, in a love reading, as feelings, and many other meaning variations. Check out the video down below where I go through all the meanings.
What does the Two of Cups mean?
The Two of Cups is a relationship card. It’s the Minor Arcana version of The Lovers. It can mean a friendship, a partnership, or often a romantic relationship.
We’re talking about the Suit of Cups here, so relationships and emotions are involved. When this card shows up, this is someone who knows you inside and out. They see your flaws and they love you regardless. This is my favorite relationship card. But this is a card about a areal partnership a true meeting of the minds.
What does the Two of Cups mean in reverse?
The Two of Cups in reverse can mean a breakup or distance between you and someone you love. It can also mean that you and your friend or partner are not on the same page. You don’t see eye to eye. There is conflict dividing two of you, even though the relationship is still there.
Does Two of Cups Always Mean Love?
No, the Two of Cups doesn’t have to mean love. This is a card about partnership. It’s a sense that you and another person are on the same page. You want the same things. This card can mean a friendship, a business partnership, or even a close family relationship. It just means that you and this person think alike and you are there for one another. This is someone you can trust.
Two of Cups as Feelings
The Two of Cups is about love, friendship, and kinship. The two of you “vibe” or you just get along. There is an easy give and take between the two of you. And, in a deeper sense, this means you love them despite all of their faults and they feel the same way. Everyone has faults. But when we are in a new relationship, we don’t often see them. This is a much more advanced relationship phase, in my opinion.
Two of Cups Reversed Feelings
This can indicate emotional distance between the two of you. Since this card is all about partnerships, it shows that either you or your partner don’t feel like you can rely on the other one. You feel a distance between the two of you. There’s a possibility that the two of you have broken up, or will end the relationship soon.
Two of Cups Love
Other than The Lovers, this is the most positive relationship card in the deck. This is a card about knowing someone on a very deep level. When this card shows up you have a very deep connection to somebody.
Two of Cups Reversed Love
This is a breakup. If you haven’t broken up, there is a disconnection between the two of you. Something isn’t quite right. You feel the distance. The two of you are not on the same page.
