The Two of Cups

A beautiful card in all that it symbolizes. Reconciliation. Peace. Harmony. Connection. A meeting of the mind and spirit. The griffin, the mythological creature with the head of a lion and the body of an eagle, long considered by the ancients as the "king of creatures" connotes powerful and magical energy. The two snakes entwined around a rod is known as a "caduceus" signifies the merging of commence and negotiation. I think given the context of the tarot the emphasis is on "negotiation".  This iconic figure also represents the Sumerian fertility god, Ningizzida, which makes sense as the Two of Cups depicts a man and a woman joining forces and bonding. From their gaze and their body language we can conclude they are lovers.

Here are some questions to think about when considering this evocative card:

-Is your relationship isolating you from others?

-If not together, what is holding you back?

-Is your relationship balanced and fair?

-If in a relationship what needs to be healed or resolved?

-Do you have intimacy issues?

-Is there something or someone which prevents you and your partner from "bonding"?
