2 of Cups

 

 

 

Upright position:

 

A new romance, a well balanced friendship is beginning, harmony, cooperation

 

The 2 of Cups often refers to romantic partnership, but that is not its only connotation. It can speak of balance, friendship, joy, and sharing.


General: In general this is a card that says that things are likely to be going well. You should be feeling more than usually loved, cared for, and content.


Work: This shows that you are likely to be appreciated in your workplace and should be feeling comfortable there, at least to a large degree even if you don't particularly like your job. If looking for employment, this can mean that you are going to find it very soon.


Love: This card represents true love, balanced partnership, commitment, and all of the things that most of us hope for in regard to love and relationship. However, this does not mean that you can just do or say "whatever" and that your love/relationship will last; it only means that the underpinnings, the real, solid, potential for true love and affection is there. If you are "looking for love," this is a signal that it is very likely to be headed your way very soon. Relax.


Finances: In relation to finance, the 2 of Cups indicates balance and fairness. You may not be "rolling in money" but at least for the moment and the near future, you should be finding that, at bare minimum, you have more than enough money to "meet your obligations," which is a start.


Health: If you are facing particular health problems, this can indicate a need for you to find a partnership with a healer that you trust and that you can "work well" together with. This is also a fairly good omen when it comes to health - you are also likely to be keeping a positive attitude which is very important (and supportive) of good health.


Spirituality: You are likely to be feeling "at one" with the energies of the universe and with yourself. This is one of the cards that represents the heart chakra and its' opening. You should be feeling more than usually loving toward everyone and everything. Share that good energy, the world needs more of it!

 

 

 

Reversed position:

 

A loss of balance in a relationship, a violent passion, love turning bad, a misunderstanding

 

The 2 of Cups often refers to romantic partnership even when reversed, but that is not its only connotation. It can speak of balance, friendship, joy, and sharing.


General: In general the reversed 2 is a card that says that things are likely to be going well. However be careful that you are not causing problems in your platonic friendships by over attention to your love life.


Work: When you recieve the reversed 2 of Cups, you may find that suddenly you like your work a lot less, and you may feel that there are unpleasant similar feelings that your workmates may hold toward you. First of all don't panic. This is possibly a passing phase. But if your work is truly not right for you, then you may need to start thinking of making a change. Trust your instincts.


Love: In general you will need to make sure you aren't paying too much attention to love to the exclusion of all else when you recieve the reversed 2 of Cups. If you get this card when there are problems in a relationship, it may be time to forgive and forget over past problems. Start fresh.


Finances: The 2 of Cups reversed generally indicates balance and fairness with regard to money. If money is a problem for you, look at the state of your relationships with people that you work with. Is there something that you can do to improve your working relationships? This will very likely improve your money flow, also.


Health: If you are facing particular health problems, the reversed 2 of Cups can indicate a need for you to consider your feelings about allowing others to help you. You may be in need of some healing; but it may be hard for you to accept help. In general, the 2 reversed is still a fairly good omen when it comes to health. Keep a positive attitude which is very important for (and supportive of ) good health.


Spirituality: This is a time to work on your feelings of belonging with the energies of the universe and being at homewith yourself. This is one of the cards that represents the heart chakra and its' opening. Find your joy, and your bliss, and share it. No one can do these things for you.
