Two of Cups Thoth Tarot

Two of Cups Imagery

Set in the sea, a lotus ejects water as two intwined marine animals (dolphins or koi fish) spit water into a single shared cup.

Two of Cups Associations

  • Formula: Chokmah of Briah + Venus in Cancer = “Love”
  • Numerical: Duality, Shift, Balance
  • Elemental: Cardinal Water
  • Decan of the Zodiac: 0º-10º Cancer (June 21-July 1)
  • Sephira: Chokmah “Wisdom”
  • Ruled by the Queen of Cups

Two of Cups Interpretations

The two of cups is about a sincere, beautiful, and deep connection between two hearts. It is probably the most intimate “relationship” card in the deck (in my opinion). The pleasure that comes from the Two of Cups is ecstatic. Ruled by Venus there is a romantic quality, but given Cancer it can also fall within the lines of family, brotherhood, or just very intimate/personal relationships. Emotions indicated by this card are positive and  electrifying.

Additional Interpretations

“Marriage, love, pleasure. Harmony of masculine and feminine united. Harmony, pleasure, mirth, subtlety: but if ill dignified—folly, dissipation, waste, silly actions.” 6

“Love. Harmony of male and female interpreted in broadest sense. Perfect and placid harmony radiating intense joy and ecstacy. Pleasure. Warm friendship. Mirth. Ill-dignified: Folly. Dissipation. Waste.” 5

“Love. Chokmah in the suit of Water. Venus in Cancer. The card represents two cups overflowing on a calm sea. These are filled from a Lotus, floating on the sea, twined with two dolphins, showing the harmony of the male and female interpreted in the highest and broadest sense.” 5

“Love. Venus in Cancer. Chokmah. Two overflowing cups filled from a lotus and twined with the dolphins of Venus. This is the harmonious union of male and female.” 5

Axank’s Dream Recall

August 22-23, 2013
There was an overpass I was standing on. The sidewalk dead-ended into a wall that had a plaque resting on a ledge. This plaque had hinges down one side that had been separated from it’s other half.

Not only does this hinge involved a tightly interconnecting section (one soul & one soul), but the fact that the overpass I was on was a bridge between two portions of land also identifies with the bond that exists between two individuals.
