Two of Cups: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
2-02-21 through 2-09-21
The Two of Cups is this week’s Tarotcast card. This card symbolizes romantic love, marriage and partnerships. It is a more accurate depiction of these than the Major Arcana card, the Lovers. The Two of Cups can represent a friendship developing into a romantic relationship. It can mean an engagement or marriage. It also includes the pleasure of platonic love. Enjoying the company of our good friends and family.
The Goddess of Love in the house of the Moon elevates Water to its most transcendent level of energy. Receptivity and reflection create unconditional love.
The Number 2
The Twos of the Minor Arcana show balanced but polarized states. The twos are duality. This is our way of seeing and being in the world to understand it. Here we weigh and balance things against their opposites. Good vs. bad, dark vs. light, positive vs. negative. Until we differentiate, we can’t resolve and unify.
On the Tree of Life, the Two of Cups represents the formula 2. Sephiroth or sphere 2, Chokmah (Wisdom). The sphere of the Zodiac, the Divine Masculine or Yang energy. In the suit of Cups; Briah, the creative world; the element of Water. Our feelings and emotions. Plus, Venus in Cancer equaling Love.
The Two of Cups symbolizes Venus in Cancer. It rules from 0 to 10 degrees Cancer, or June 21st to July 1st. If your birthday falls on or between these dates, you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. This card depicts the element of water in its best and highest form. Harmony between male and female energies (Yin and Yang), joy and pleasure. Use this gentle, positive energy to open your heart and connect with the people you love.
In real-time astrology, the Sun continues its transit of Air-sign Aquarius. This energy will put the focus of our love and affection on friendships. Humanitarian concerns take center stage. Even our romantic partnerships harmonize around cooperation rather than passion or desire.
“All you need is love. All you need is love. All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.”
Mercury continues retrograde in Aquarius. This is an excellent time to communicate with care. Listen and think before you speak. Allow for the mistakes that others may make. Seek clarity rather than perfection.
“Wear your love like heaven…”
Donovan – Wear Your Love Like Heaven
On February 2nd Venus joins the Sun in Aquarius. As already mentioned, our friendships and partnerships blossom with this loving energy. The flame of passion may not burn as hot. But there’s abundant warmth to share.
“Sometimes I feel like saying, ‘Lord, I just don’t care.’ But you’ve got the love I need to see me through…”
February 4th the Moon’s last quarter in Cancer’s fellow-Water sign, Scorpio. Feelings run deep and intensify beneath the surface.
“And can you feel the love tonight? It is where we are…”
Saturn is sextile Chiron on February 9th. This is a longer-term influence. This energy softens some of the harsher Saturn aspects. It helps us explore our unique path without conflict or controversy. We’re able to go forward with respect for others. We are confident in ourselves without bragging or arrogance.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of the Two of Cups includes disillusionment. Separation. Loving energy disrupted or resisted through fear or rejection.
Let’s focus on enjoying the positive aspects by spending time with people we like. Let attractions blossom with people we want to get to know and like even better. It’s a great week to flirt, begin dating, or even fall in love! We can develop an existing relationship and see it move forward in a positive direction.
Power colors: pearl gray, emerald green, sky blue and pale pink for Venus. Amber, maroon and russet for Cancer.
Power stones: emerald, opal, jade, sapphire and lapis lazuli. Wear these as jewelry or carry them as power stones to awaken feelings of love and attraction.
Power metals: silver (for Cancer) and copper (for Venus). I’d opt for the silver of course, but choose whichever makes you happiest, alternate or even combine them.
Power fragrances: poppy, white rose, violet, wild rose, bergamot, geranium, hibiscus, and plumeria. Use these to create a sensuous, relaxed mood. These scents will help you deepen an existing relationship or to attract new love into your life. Use them to help you draw in what (and who) will bring you true happiness.
Power foods: this week’s fruits and vegetables will make tasty meals for those we love. Cancer rules the stomach, Venus the heart – so the way to our loved one’s heart is through their stomach! Prepare foods with apples, watercress, strawberries, poppy seeds and vanilla. Brew teas from hibiscus, rose hips and bergamot. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
