Q: What does the two of cups tarot card mean in my love reading?
“Finding Your Other Half”
This is a time of bonding with another and joining your hearts together. The Two of Cups refers to falling in love, finding your other half, and connecting with someone on such a powerful level that the two of you become one.
It’s not always a love connection. It can refer to a close friendship or business partnership as well. It refers to the “sum of the parts being greater than the whole,” which reminds us that two heads (and hearts) are better than one.
Whether you’re in a relationship or just looking, the Two of Cups is all about falling in love — either opening yourself up to new experiences or reigniting a connection with someone you’re already involved with.
It’s this process of falling in love that reveals to us — in perfect clarity — ourselves at our very best. It’s where we put our best version of ourselves forward and the Universe responds by opening up unanticipated doors.
The Two of Cups is known as the “Love” card as it refers to that love at first sight sense of finding your other half. It’s the mutual attraction card, the “soul mate” card, and so much more. It’s the process of falling in love or renewing a love connection that replenishes itself over time.
There’s a synergy that pulls two people together and echoes their feelings back to one another. In this respect the Two of Cups is more about falling in love with yourself, as seen through your loved one’s eyes.
The Two of Cups often refers to a brand new relationship — one that hasn’t fully gotten off the ground. It’s more about falling in love than it is about being in love. It’s more about that heady state of limerence than the comfort or monotony that comes with long-standing unions.
Whether they can still withstand the test of time is still very much up in the air. But established relationships can also use a reminder of what it was like to fall in love.
If you meet someone new during this time, consider it an opportunity for growth. It could be the yin to your yang — or it could just be a friend who shows you the true meaning of the word.
You may also be working on revamping your current connection or reuniting with a loved one. Whichever it is, be grateful for the opportunity to see yourself through someone else’s eyes.
