Tarot Two of Cups Description

This card recalls the imagery of The Lovers in the Major Arcana. While the Lovers emphasizes the power of love, this one stresses the beginning of a new or renewed relationship. It may refer to an important friendship, a love relation or a business partnership.

In the Rider Waite tarot deck two people celebrate their union by drinking together. They merge their qualities trough love and in this way go beyond what they would achieve as single individuals.

In The Lovers card the union is represented under the auspices of an angel but in the Two of Cups the union is presided by a winged lion over the caduceus of Hermes that represents wisdom and healing.

The lion represents the instincts and its wings the spirituality that takes natural inclinations to a higher level. In the distance we see a house as a suggestion of the possibility of a life together under the same roof. 

The scene is a representation of courtship, attraction and pledging between two individuals that are very similar yet different.
