Divinatory meanings of Two of Cups
Magical Image of the 2 of Cups
In the first face of Cancer ascends the form of a young Virgin, adorned with fine clothes, and having a Crown on her head; it gives acuteness of senses, subtlety of wit, and the love of men
The crown signifies developed consciousness. In the Three of Wands we saw a woman having rule over the Earth.
Picatrix gives a more nuanced approach to love – that of a woman enjoying the company of men.
