Hanson Roberts Tarot-Two of Cups


This card shows a couple bringing their individual cups together. A cross of light radiates where the cups meet. The couple's foreheads are touching in a gesture called a "tantric kiss" in a tradition I learned. Above their heads is a winged caduceus with a lion's head on it. Two green snakes form the body of the caduceus. The symbolism gives this a different meaning beyond the usual new relationship, beginning, etc. It shows a marriage of the masculine and feminine selves, an awakening of kundalini, spiritual healing, and alchemy.
