2 of Cups – Minor Arcana

What is the Meaning of the Two of Cups Tarot Card?

The Two of Cups is very similar to The Lovers from the Major Arcana, but to a much lesser degree.

This card also depicts a man and a woman, facing each other and holding one golden chalice each.

This card can represent a budding romantic relationship, friendship, or a strong familial bond.

The Two of Cups will rarely represent one person, so when it shows up in your readings it’s telling you to examine your romantic and platonic relationships.

The Two of Cups can also signify balance, as the card is showing us symmetry between the male and female it features.


The Two of Cups is one of the very few cards within the tarot that has an overall positive meaning in each position.

In a past position it indicates an old relationship that was loving, accepting, and on the surface perfect.

While it’s now changed, or even ended, it has left you with some valuable life lessons that have ultimately helped you to become better at forming lasting bonds with others.

The Two of Cups in a present position signifies the beginning of a new bond or the repairing of an old one.

If this card should appear in your present position, don’t be surprised if you find an old lover or estranged family member contacting you out of the blue.

This is a good sign that reconciliation is possible and to pursue it to the best of your ability.

A future position occupied by this card is an incredibly positive outcome.

With the Two of Cups in your future, dare to be bold in your relationships and taking action to bring them to the next level.


If you’ve been allowing other people to come first before you’re taken care of, it’s no surprise that the Two of Cups would show up in the reverse.

As with most of the Cups suit, a reversal of this card means that you are not in control of yourself emotionally.

However, this being the Two of Cups makes it about another person or people. You’re allowed to make sure your loved ones are taken care of, but you can’t sacrifice yourself in order to do so.

When the Two of Cups shows in your reading in the reverse, it’s telling you to put your needs first once in awhile. It’s okay to be a little selfish for your own peace of mind.

In this position the Two of Cups may also signify a lack of communication in your personal relationships that could have unfortunate results.

This is a strong suggestion that you find a way to open up the lines of communication and learn to be more honest and direct with your thoughts and feelings.


For my birthday I received a beautiful set of Black Obsidian Norse runes from Lady Silver Sage’s family. I will be using these now to draw one a day for our divination reading.
