- Divinatory meaning: This card was inspired by the courting rituals of eagles. During the coronavirus lockdown, Savannah and I often took walks in the woods along the Hudson River. Bald eagles made frequent appearances, darting to and from their nest on the high cliff above the water. When eagles are courting, they do a kind of dance of death. The two birds, at risk of both their lives, lock talons and tumble together from great heights. If they can’t learn to fly all tangled together, they may die. But they risk this grisly potential end for a worthy partner. It’s hard not to think of Romeo and Juliet with this card. The difference here between the star-crossed lovers and our fated birds is that tragedy is not assured, only a possibility. But there is no great love without great risk. This card predicts a likely encounter with a person with whom you will feel a deep bond. It is not always a romantic partnership, although that is often the case. More than The Lovers card, the Two of Cups portends real love and connection. If someone inspires you to take the leap, go for it. They might be worth it.
- Our card: Another card that came easily to us. Savannah talked about her interest in the dramatic courting dances of eagles. All we needed was the birds and the churning seas below them to convey the risk their union required. We believe a risk for real love is almost always worth taking.
