The meaning of the Two of Cups Tarot card is ‘true love.’ This Tarot card predicts nothing but positive interactions. When you receive the Two of Cups, you can bet that intimate relationships are on your mind or will be of interest to you in the near future. Your knight in shining armor is heading your way.
Two of Cups General Tarot Meaning
It’s often said by experienced readers that the Two of Cups is the card of soulmates. Even if you don’t believe in such a thing as true love, the Two of Cups still predicts good relationships and understanding between two people. Therefore, if you’re hoping to find love, you should pray for a Two of Cups!
If you feel like the Two of Cups card does not predict soulmates, it can represent best friends who are about to play a major part in your life. These friends will be a positive influence and want nothing more than to work in unity with you.
Very rarely does the Two of Cups Tarot card represent work. When it appears in a workplace capacity, the Two of Cups may predict that you’ll meet the love of your life during work hours.
Finally, although the Two of Cups is not a card that most readers associate with pregnancy, in many cases, I feel that it can be a pregnancy card. In fact, I often interpret the Two of Cups as a card that symbolizes twins!
Two of Cups Love Tarot Meaning
My Thoughts – Two of Cups
“The Two of Cups is the card of true, pure love. However, it can also symbolise a very close friendship.” – Lisa
The Two of Cups is pretty straightforward for love Tarot readings – it’s one of my Tarot cards that indicate love. If it pops up in the future or outcome position, this can mean that your partnership will go the extra mile and possibly last a very long time.
The Two of Cups predicts, for the most part, that your relationship is solid. The only time the Two of Cups is not good for love readings is when it appears in a ‘negative’ or ‘challenges’ Tarot spread position. If this is the case for you, it can mean that you stay with your partner out of pity, or conversely, that they’ll be the one to stand by you because they don’t want your feelings to get hurt.

Two of Cups Feelings Tarot Meaning
If you’ve asked your Tarot cards about someone’s feelings toward you, the Two of Cups means that these are mutual. If you have recently had a fight, don’t worry; your partner will contact you soon, and everything will go back to normal.
Are you reading your Tarot cards about an ex? They still have feelings for you. Your ex-lover is likely to come back. They still hold on to the good times that you shared together as a couple.
Two of Cups Career & Business Tarot Meaning
As noted above, the Two of Cups can sometimes mean that you’ll meet the love of your life through your work. Alternatively, the Two of Cups in a business or career Tarot reading can mean that you will make very close friends through your work.
If the above interpretation doesn’t apply, the Two of Cups in a career reading can serve as a warning. Sometimes, it can mean that your good nature will get the better of you – you will feel inspired to give things away. Are you finding that you’re giving too many discounts? Are you gifting one too many freebies? The Two of Cups can mean that this needs to change, especially if it appears in the outcome or future position of your reading.
Two of Cups Future Tarot Meaning
When the Two of Cups appears in an outcome position of a Tarot spread, it predicts a very happy relationship. For singles, it means they’re going to meet someone. If you’re currently single, expect to be swept off of your feet. For the already attached, the Two of Cups means that you’re going to stay with your lover for the foreseeable future.
The Two of Cups is a marriage card. While it’s likely that you’ll be the one getting married, it can sometimes predict the marriage of a close peer. This is especially true when it appears in the future of general Tarot readings.
When marriage is not a possibility and you don’t feel that it symbolizes a relationship, the Two of Cups can represent a future friendship. You will meet a friend whom you feel is your soulmate – not in the romantic sense, but you will nonetheless be a perfectly matched couple.
