The Two of Cups in the Luna Sol Tarot (PLUS a special offer!)
By Darren Shill
There is something weird that happens between the Aces and the Twos in the tarot. Aces always feel special. All that potential and pure essence of the suit gives them a presence that stands apart from the other cards.
Drawing an Ace in a reading gives a similar buzz to be dealt an Ace from a deck of playing cards… now here’s a card I can do something with! But if you think of the minor arcana as a journey, with the Nine as your destination and Ten as having gone a bit further than expected, then the Ace is the initial idea to take that journey and the Two is the first step. Sadly, it’s not always the best of beginnings. Maybe in going from that initial concept to reality, new issues cause analysis paralysis (Swords) or maybe life gets in the way, with other jobs that need to be juggled at the same time (Discs). There’s a sense that going from that one singular concept of the Ace to the multiple factors in the Two is not always as easy as you thought.
It probably won’t surprise you to hear that there is one Two that bucks that trend – the beautiful Two of Cups. Cups are the watery suit of emotions and relationships. When thinking about emotions, including another element (person) obviously makes it all the more complex and meaningful. Turning idea to reality in the world of relationships is an utterly wonderful feeling – and the strength of this card often indicates love. Whilst there are no guarantees, the Two of Cups suggests this is both significant and worth investing optimism in. Congratulations!
You are well matched and in harmony with another person in your life. The connection is meaningful and suggests a relationship that is more than transitory.
