The Two of Cups denotes engagement and marriage, a commitment in a partnership which is promised equally from both sides
The Two of Cups Tarot card has an image of a man and woman standing opposite each other. Each of them hold a gold cup and it looks as if they are raising their cups to each other as a toast or celebration. Each of them stares deep into the others eyes and the man is touching the woman’s cup with his hand. The couple appear on an equal level and show a union of man and woman showing mutual trust and respect for each other. Above them there is a lion with wings, known as ‘The Caduceus’ or ‘Rod of Hermes’ and this animal is symbolic of health, balance and harmony. A snake intertwines from the lion down to the couple showing that it brings together and connects the man and woman, commonly depicted as a bond which is a blessing from the Gods. The ground beneath them is flat and even, showing that there are no obstacles in the way.
