Two of Cups Reversal Meaning
When reversed, the Two of Cups can mean that the balance that was once there is broken. This balance was an integral part of keeping the individuals together, but to break it is to create disconnection and discord. The negative energy of two forces is present, and instead of them joining or attracting, they seem to repel each other.
You may be finding that certain small details that were not problems before are coming into play, signaling that one party may have resentments. A line of communication that allowed you and the other party to openly talk about disagreements has been cut off, only worsening the cycle of resentment and imbalance.
Be the first to open up, and you may find the problem much easier to repair than you thought it would be.
Reversed 2 of Cups Tarot Love Meaning
Something isn’t quite right when the reversed 2 of Cups card shows up in a love tarot reading. Either the two of you are becoming too co-dependent on each other, unable to develop each person’s unique talents, or the balance between two partners can be upset with uneven power dynamics. If you’re in a relationship, always make sure to nurture your own and your partner’s individuality; the two of you are different people, with different interests and needs. Being who you are, on your own, will bring more to the relationship than if you were identical to your partner. Sometimes, this card can also point to the pursuit of love at the expense of all else.
