Like traditionally with this card, I’ve shown a couple facing each other holding cups. Mine are a little more intimate, with him holding her at the waist, instead of touching her hand or cup. I felt this was another way to show the connection or attraction between them in a more romantic way. Some symbols I worked in – running down the side of her dress are glowing hearts, often associated with the number two, symbolizing harmony and also look like a pair of twos facing each other. On the shoulder of his coat is a spiral, also associated with the number two meaning developing awareness. For colors, I went with red and blue…showing hot and cold. Opposites, but equal and balanced. Also in the card is the caduceus in between them. I wanted to include it in a way where it seemed to fit in with the background, so decided to turn it into a constellation. It’s prominent, but blends well.
A couple toast each other under the stars, celebrating against a backdrop of shooting stars. Whether they are lovers or partners is unclear, but it is certain that he wants this to be more, as his arm reaches on her waist, pulling him to her.
When this card appears in a reading, it is time to give love and partnership a chance. Time to come together and lower your walls. Don’t be stand offish, around others, but open and allow yourself to form a bond. Embrace connections and opportunities to experience harmony.
The basis of a true, respectful, special relationship, be it romantic, or platonic, is out there waiting for you….foster it and help it to grow. Give yourself permission to feel unity and joy, to work with others and feel secure in the knowledge that someone has your back.
