The Two of Cups depicts a young man and a woman standing facing each other and seem to be exchanging cups in what is probably a wedding ceremony.
Between them caduceus of Hermes is seen. From times immemorial the caduceus has been considered as the symbol of physicians and healers. As such it is a symbolic representation of balance, health, protection, cosmic energy and union of opposites.
It also brings promise of proper moral conduct. Here the caduceus is seemingly sending a positive vibe so that the new partnership can thrive properly. Over the caduceus is a lion's head - a symbol of passion and energy that brings strong physical attraction between the couple, although it may be expressed or suppressed.
The two snakes that entwine the caduceus emphasize that in life the light and darkness coexist. The card brings the message that with respect, proper equilibrium and honor a union of even the opposites can be very rewarding.
Upright Position: This card portrays the beauty of a union where two become one.

It may also mean reconciliation. Apart from personal relationships, the card in a reading can also indicate formation of a business partnership.
Reversed Position: When this card appears reversed in a reading it indicates disharmony and imbalance in relationships. Jealousy and conflict in relationship would lead to separation. It may also warn of divorce or adultery.
