Two of Cups Tarot Card Meaning

The Two of Cups tarot card from The Simple Tarot, with keywords and the tarot card meanings printed on the cards.

Everyone LOVES the Two of Cups tarot card. This is the Love Card, after all.

But it is about much more than romantic love. It’s a very positive card when dealing with any relationship pairing or partnership.

This card strongly indicates romance, attraction, and love. In situations where romance isn’t the focus, it can also mean a strong business partnership, friendship, or other relationship between two parties.

In traditional Rider-Waite-Smith-based decks, the Two of Cups shows a man and a woman, each holding a cup, reaching toward each other. A winged lion floats in the sky above them, protecting and blessing their relationship.

It’s a particularly good card when trying to build a shared understanding or when you are working toward a common goal.

This definitely isn’t a casual, fun and sexy-times pairing or a friends-with-benefits situation. The Two of Cups tarot card indicates a stronger, more solid relationship. (Of course, it can also mean a strong physical attraction, so maybe fun and sexy-times will be a part of it)!

Two of Cups Tarot Card Meanings for Love

Overall, the Two of Cups is a great card for love, romance, and attraction.

If you are looking for a new relationship, this is one of the very best cards for a solid long-term partnership. This will be a relationship that lasts.

If you are looking for something fun and casual like a vacation fling, this card anticipates something more. Your one-night-stand might turn into your dream partner or a friend you have for life.

If you are currently in a relationship, a marriage proposal or similar declaration of commitment is quite the possibility!

It’s also a good card if you need to heal your relationship or are looking to reconcile your differences and move on to something deeper.

Two of Cups Tarot Card Meanings for Work

This is a fantastic card for a business partnership. You are both on the same page and want the same things for this venture. Together, your strengths and weaknesses are complimentary. This is definitely a situation where One + One is greater than Two.

And if you haven’t found your perfect partner yet, it looks like they will be arriving into your life soon.

In the office, any partnership looks golden. Don’t be afraid to team up on a project to get the job done. Reach out to someone you admire and offer to help them with a specific task. Treat yourself as their peer and you’ll become one.

Two of Cups Tarot Card Meanings for Health

The Two of Cups is a very positive card for health and healing, especially when it comes to emotional wounds.

If your heart is broken or you are holding on to resentments from the past, you’ll soon have the motivation and support to heal and move on. Moving through loss and grief takes time, but you’re not the only one who has gone through this experience. Be vulnerable in sharing with others who have had similar experiences. Ask for help and support during this trying time and partner up with someone you trust.

If you are struggling with your physical or mental health, you have (or soon will have) the support you need. But any partnership requires the efforts of both parties to make it work, so it is your responsibility to step up and make changes in your life. You need to give as much as you gain and your actions will be a role model for your partner.

Two of Cups Tarot Card Meanings for Money and Finances

This card, although overwhelmingly positive, doesn’t indicate money coming into your life through luck or outside events. It’s a card for sharing and working with a partner toward a common goal.

Whether in your personal or professional life, you need to get on the same page, financially-speaking, with your partner. If you two are working toward a goal (like saving for a house or paying off debt), it appears you will make things happen together.

Work together on this goal with honest communication and regular updates. Hold each other accountable with positive support, an open heart, and cheerful encouragement.

Two of Cups Tarot Card Meaning for Spiritual Guidance

No one walks through this world alone. Even at our most isolated and alone, we are still connected to others through our memories, communities, and future possibilities.

Your energy and your existence connects you to everyone and everything else in the Universe. You are never alone.

As you investigate and discover your place in the world, you will meet other people who share similar beliefs, values, and stories. These people are your Tribe.

This card is a reminder that two people are always stronger, smarter, and more powerful than one. Although your spiritual journey is yours alone, you won’t find meaning or purpose until you share your experiences with others. Compassion, generosity, kindness, trust, and honest communication are required practices along the path to enlightenment, and they can only be practiced through interaction with others.
