Today’s card is the Two of Cups, also known as Chalices. This card signifies a union of souls. It traditionally describes a romantic relationship, but also includes the idea that all good friendships and partnerships are based on a natural affinity and a deep mutual understanding. As a personal reflection, it can also signify that your mind and your soul are discovering each other, maybe for the first time.
This card also symbolizes a karmic tie, often portrayed by a wreath or figure-eight ribbon twining around the two cups. Occasionally you see a symbol referring to the union of alchemical opposites (as in sacred sex), pictured as a long-necked flask twined with serpents, its mouth spouting flames, sometimes with wings. This image is from Alchemy, indicating the refining and mutually completing effect of a true and lasting love.
When this card comes, it is telling you to Express the caring that you feel. Reach out to those you hold in your heart, so that they know you are thinking of them. The Two of Cups also advises you to speak your heart. It may be likely that the person you are trying to connect with feels the same. Still the other needs to hear this more fully. In that case, why not make it clear and why not do it now? The Two of Cups represents the concept of the heart making a vow. This card advises you to pledge yourself to this friendship or romance and put your heart on the line. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Life is a relationship game. It’s a great privilege to share it with others who are so complementary and compatible.
Today, may you find that special friend or lover who fills your heart with joy!
