This card depicts a pair of figures, one male, one female, each holding a cup. They are apparently about to make a toast. The immediate impression is of harmony and balance. A new friendship is being formed. A new relationship is starting to blossom. A romance that is going well. It might be a partnership to do with arts, pleasure, fun. It could be a director and producer coming together to make a film. An entertainment company merging with another one.


The reversed card suggests discord and inbalance. A relationship that is going badly. Friendship, partnership that is in trouble. A marriage on the rocks.

is a card of love at its most harmonious. Above all it refers to a union of two people, a union which creates something greater than themeselves.

Twos are cards of balance and potential: the Two of Swords represents a truce; the Two of Wands, focused energy; the Two of Pentacles, stability within a transformation. In this card, the possibility of union, especially a joyful one, is expressed through attraction and loving acts.

In the above image, two cup-bearers come together beneath a peculiar symbol. The caduceus––the stick encircled by two snakes––suggests a balanced exchange between them. The winged lion head is based on the Mithraic god Aeon, a winged, lion-headed, serpent-encircled figure.

Traditionally, the Marseilles tarot shows two intertwined dolphins above the two cups and a red heart below them.

The Thoth tarot uses this imagery in its version of this card, which Crowley called the “Lord of Love under Will.”
