This is the card of the unity of love, it is symbolic of commitment, and the exchange of mutual bonds. The Rider-Waite card shows a man and a woman exchanging ‘loving’ cups, we glimpse their fingers touch as they do so. This card could also be seen as a card of ‘Soul mates’.
It shows in a more general sense a mutual affection and friendship of equals.
Insider Tarot Tip: This card also shows something new arising out of a partnership; something impossible by either person alone.
