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.
