37-Two of Cups – Reversed Rider Waite Deck

Your Chosen Card – Two of Cups Reversed Rider Waite 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.

Portable Magic: The planet Venus rules the first decanate of Cancer, which is the decanate given to the Two of Cups. The planetary modifier of Venus is the Empress, which seems a very appropriate choice for this ritual.

Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 3: The tarot is simply a tool that can help us to clarify our thinking. It’s up to us whether or not we use the cards. Some people find the tarot helpful, others do not. Occultist Hajo Banzhaf has cautioned that tarot is a good servant but a bad master. We should consult the tarot only if we find it helpful.
