Two of Cups: the invisible threads that tie us together

Life’s strange. There are people who you see every single day and yet share no connection with – and then there are others, who you only know for a short while – but with whom you quickly come to share unforgettable memories.

The Two of Cups is an odd card. To me, it always looked like a prom date from 400 years ago. Boy meets girl at a party. Maybe they connect. Maybe they don’t. But exactly what is it that connects two people and repels two others? What is it that causes a particular person to rouse certain emotions in us while the large majority of people we meet are nothing but strangers all on the same life journey?

 

In my line of work, I meet LOTS of people all the time. These days, people rarely leave a lasting impression on me. I don’t believe in love at first sight. (I do believe in lust at first sight, though…)

But above everything, I believe there are threads that can tie two people together for reasons that are beyond our comprehension. In my experience, the people who end up turning your life upside down are the others who seemed unassuming and yielding at the start. They sneak into your heart like a thief in the night.

It’s hard to know the exact moment that it happened – only that it did and now there’s no turning back.
