New Cards, New Perspective?

Two of Cups

Someone recently gave me a new set of Tarot Cards. Now, I’m pretty adamant about using the standard Rider-Waite deck that has existed for most of the 20th century. However, I decided to pull today’s card from the new deck, which is called The Golden Tarot, with illustrations by Melissa Launay. I included a shot of the back of the card here, which is also very striking.

The card of the day is the Two of Cups. In the Golden Tarot, the image is very straightforward (as it is for all the Cups): there are two elaborate cups on a simple blue background. If I had drawn from my older deck, the man and woman toasting each other with the large cups would instantly clue you in to the romantic message expressed by this card.  Whether it’s about an existing love or one soon to occur, or a business partnership, this card is an affirmation that all is well in that relationship. There is and will continue to be mutual harmony in this relationship, so make a toast and drink up!
