The 2 of cups typically depicts 2 people holding cups. It can look similar to the Major Arcana Card, the Lovers. And the sentiment is similar, as a joining of forces. Two people come together to share a moment with the cups.
I suggest, while looking at this card description, you have your tarot deck in front of you and decide for yourself if you agree with the feelings on this page or if the card represents something entirely different to you.

A few words to describe the card:
Connection, merging of ideas/emotions, joy
2 of Cups
The 2 of cups tarot card is similar to yin-yang, where 2 opposing forces work together in harmony. The card depicts 2 people holding cups, but it’s not necessarily representing 2 people. It can be for a merging of thoughts or emotions. When these 2 opposing forces are combined, there is a strength that occurs.
This is a very positive card in a reading, like old friends reacquainting after a time apart.
There is also a bit of innocence in this card, as it is at the beginning of the cups sequence. It reminds us that we can be excited, but we must also pay attention to everything, else we may end up on the wrong track.
Still confused about the meanings of the cards? A few tools that have been really helpful for me have been: practice, taking the time to look at each card, read books like Tarot: Learn How to Read and Interpret the Cards by Kim Arnold. Or try out tarot spreads! Try doing a simple reading every day. The Labyrinthos app is really helpful too. Or try some that I’ve created by looking here: Tarot Spreads.
