In a love Tarot reading, if you are single, the Two of Cups Tarot card reversed can signify a romance with someone who you are incompatible with. It can indicate that someone you are dating may blow hot and cold on you. You may find that they can’t get enough of you one minute and disappear or give you the cold shoulder the next. If you are in a relationship, the Two of Cups reversed is not a great omen as it can signify arguments, broken engagements, separation or divorce. It can signify that you and/or your partner have been taking the relationship for granted and not putting the work in. You may find yourself drawn to someone other than your partner. Alternately, you may find that you and your partner have become so co-dependent that it is creating resentment or arguments in your relationship. Whatever the issue, if you want your relationship to survive, this card tells you that you need to re-balance the relationship. Or you may need to rebalance yourself by getting your own emotions, issues or ego in check, which may naturally balance out the relationship. The Two of Cups reversed can, in some Tarot readings, signify abuse, dominance or controlling behaviour. Look to the supporting cards for confirmation of this.

In a career context, the Two of Cups reversed can signify dissolving a business partnership that has turned sour. You and your business partner may no longer have the same goals or respect for each other that you once did. If you are not in a business partnership, you may find yourself butting heads with your colleagues or falling victim to some sort of inequality, harassment or bullying in the workplace. Your finances may be lacking balance with this Minor Arcana card in reverse so watch your spending when it appears.
In a health context, the Two of Cups reversed can suggest that disharmony, stress or tension may be causing a knock-on effect on your health. You see a lack of balance within you manifesting itself in physical symptoms such as headaches or migraines, high blood pressure or chronic fatigue. Try to resolve the imbalances in other areas of your life and see if your health issues subside.
In a spiritual context, the Two of Cups reversed can indicate that you are disconnected from the love and positive energy the universe is sending you. You may find it difficult to connect to spirit and find that you powers are very off balance at the moment. Try some meditation or energy work to bring yourself back into alignment with your spiritual path.
