37-Two of Chalices – Reversed Salem Deck

Your Chosen Card – Two of Chalices Reversed Salem Deck

When reversed, the Two of Cups implies that you might be having difficulty with a friendship or romantic interest. It may be that the close bond you thought existed was really a false friendship or that the other person does not truly have your best interests at heart. There appears to be some sort of lack of commitment to the relationship. If you are unable to resolve the disharmony, it could result in estrangement or the dissolution of a relationship. In terms of romance, it may be that sexual attraction between the partners is simply lacking. There is no point continuing to pursue someone if the only response you get is disinterest or unrequited love. A relationship based on sex without love and mutual respect is doomed to failure.

Keywords Reversed: Disaffection, false friendship, disharmony, unrequited love, lack of commitment, the inability to reconcile differences, lack of sexual attraction.

Book Details
Portable Magic: The members of the Golden Dawn may not have understood why elemental Earth must be omitted from the Hebrew letters, and consequently from the trumps of the Tarot. They made an attempt to slip elemental Earth into the Greater Arcana correspondences through the back door, as it were, by creating a dual association for the final trump, the World. In most tables of the correspondences based on Sqbher Yetzirah and confirmed by the Secret Chiefs, the World receives only the planet Saturn, but in some documents of the Golden Dawn where the correspondences are shown (Regardie, The Golden Dawn, 6th ed., 651), and in similar documents of Aleister Crowley (The Book of Thoth, 2’78), the World is also given elemental Earth.

Reversed Cards: The two in numerology is connected to duality, partnerships, balance, cooperation, perception, and decision-making. We see these reveal themselves in each of the two cards within the tarot suits. The Two of Cups shows the coming together of people. The Two of Swords illustrates the two different ways to resolve a problem or situation. The Two of Wands speaks of the coming together of two elements for the purpose of manifestation, and the Two of Pentacles depicts the constant juggling humans do between the material and the spiritual. The interesting thing about the twos is that no matter which way up they present themselves, the dual aspect and joining or the element of coming together that the number two vibrates to will always be present. A reversed two really gives us more of a clue to your personal level of resistance to working with others, asking for help, or making a decision.

Tarot for Beginners: The Lovers card read reversed could indicate a misalignment of values, or disharmony in an area of life related to relationship with others or with self. Commitment issues and/or break-ups may be indicated, especially if one partner would rather pull away than work through difficulties. Whatever comes of the choice made by you or someone you care about, it will ultimately be for the good.

Reversed Cards: Have you ever been stuck at the departure gate at the airport or worse, on the tarmac? If you have, you know exactly how this card feels when it is in the protection position. You are all set and ready to fly away, move on, and get going, but instead—nothing. You just sit there. No movement whatsoever. Complete bummer. Most of the time you find out why after the fact, which is more than likely the case with this card as well. Knowing why it is in the protection aspect won’t serve you in any way. If anything, it will only aggravate you. But later, after you have arrived at your destination, hindsight will be a beautiful thing.
