Tarotcard of the week: 2 of cups

A new week, a new card:

2 of cups, Friendliness

Traditional interpretation: It stands for love, either between two people (both friendly and romantic), but also to a purpose or a cause. It shows us that we have a choice, to explore the new feelings or to go in another direction. It can also stand for a fellowship or an unexpected meeting or an intimate conversation.

Osho Zen interpretation: It stands for a selfless fellowship without demands and without dependents from either party. The pure form of fellowship.

My interpretation: For me the card stand for the beginning of a relationship of any kind. The picture shows us what a strong relationship looks like. The trees stand on their own trunks, they are strong in themselves, they have their own power and strength. But the crowns are intertwined, not completely but the two trees become part of each other. It shows us that even in a relationship, we need to stand on our own base, find our own strength. While we allow parts of our lives and our person to intertwine with others, there are also parts of us that is only ours. We are always individuals. This is true both for friendship and love. This is one of my favorite cards in the deck because it reminds me of what to strive for to achieve a healthy relationship with the people in our lives.
