Most tarot enthusiasts think happy vibes, butterflies, doves and love when they see this card. Oh, and Valentines Day, naturally since this is just around the corner. It’s the quintessential relationships card, and usually augurs well for the beginning of any new relationship. I would like to share my recent experience with this card, shortly after I applied for the job I am currently working in. After my phone interview, naturally I wanted to know what the outcome of the interview would be. Eager beaver that I am, I got out my trusty Rider Waite Smith and drew a card – the 2 of Cups. I was aware this card stands for the beginning of a relationship, and also the making of an offer, but I wasn’t quite convinced it was the right card as an outcome of a successful interview (because I just know better than the universe, OK?!).
Yes. 2 of Cups. Again. I guess in my mind I wanted something really solid that screamed success, like the 6 of Wands or the 9 of Cups or something like that.
Still, this was not enough. Hands up who has asked the same question over and over again – perhaps using a different deck? Uh-huh. It’s not quite the thing to do in tarot, since one is meant to sit with the answer and attempt an understanding of some form, but when you’re a fire sign, patience is a foreign word.
So, I thought “a-ha! Bring on the Haindl!” The Haindl Tarot, as I’ve blogged before, is my personal deck. When all else fails, or I need the cutting truth with no ambiguity, I shuffle this little stunner. And so I did, and for the third time in a row, yes, I received the 2 of Cups.
So next time this card comes up in a reading, if it is not specifically related to a relationship issue, I can say its meaning for the successful offer of a contract is definitely “on the cards”.
I’m guessing there will be a lot of the more romantic “2 of Cups” energy in the air tomorrow, so wishing everyone a Happy Valentines day wherever you are and whoever you are with 😉 And I’m happy to say I’m returning to a more regular blog posting as I’ve sorted my internet connection for good – this is why I’ve been away for a couple of weeks now.
