In a lush garden we see a couple embracing under the observant eye of the full moon. A green chalice filled with Life’s Blood is in the foreground while next to it sits a burning blood-red candle. Nearby is a bush flush with pink roses. These things are in stark contrast to the backdrop of watery grays and greens. An ebony fountain in the shape of a winged panther presides over all.
n. a fresh growth of leaves,
flowers, or fruit
The 2 of Cups is aligned with Venus in Cancer, represented here by the tattoo on the man’s arm and the symbol on the stone column under the fountain.
This scene is a Seduction, as we can clearly see blood running down the neck of the Vampyress’s young lover. She’s ensured his fate is inextricably tied to hers.
Sometimes referred to as the Lord of Love, the 2 of Cups symbolizes balance and symmetry, solidarity, romance, and creative unions.
n. in a way that is impossible to disentangle or separate
Venus represents two main areas of our life: love and money; and Cancer is all about emotions and feelings. Therefore, Venus in Cancer points to a romantic relationship between two people.
