Two Of Cups – Deviant Moon Tarot Deck
I. The Description of Two of Cups Deviant Moon Tarot
The Midnight female ghost is attracted to Death. Two lovers exchange a commitment. Together they toast and bless the reunion. In the Rider-Waite standard Tarot deck, there are two people exchanging their cup under the witness of a god, while in the Deviant Moon Tarot, there are two individuals holding cups under the witness of the moon. This is a card of two people who love each other, the card of love and of connecting two people together. How beautiful it is for the Tarot spreads about love that the querent draws the Two of Cups card.
However, the hand gestures of the two characters in the card are notable. With Two of Cups Rider-Waite Tarot, the man is reaching out to receive the cup from the woman and exchanges his cup afterward. This is also the traditional viewpoint that men are the ones who take the initiative in romance. More importantly, these actions show a rhythm, firm, and sustainability. In the card Two of Cups Deviant Moon Tarot, with a date between the Midnight female ghost and Death, their two cup-holding hands are raised simultaneously like an ancient Chinese custom where the couple locks their arms as they partake in the ceremonial wedding alcohol. Compared to the Rider-Waite Tarot, this scene is much more romantic.
However, we can notice the position of the two’s cup-holding hands. In ancient Chinese weddings, the couple drinks wine when their right arms cross each other because the sound of “wine” in Chinese sounds like another Chinese character which means a long time, this is to symbolize that they will be together forever. Apparently, the fact that Death holding the cup in his left hand and the Midnight female ghost holding the cup with her right hand as shown in the card indicates uncertainty and changeableness. Looking horizontally, we see cohesion, but looking vertically from above, there may not be any closeness or relevance. This is beyond cooperation and acceptance, it also shows more of the vagueness and ambiguity, which are seldom seen in the first ecstatic moments of a romantic relationship.
