Rider_Waite_Tarot_Spread

It is your responsibility that the person you are sexually intimate with is doing you no harm.

Chariot
Two of Cups, Ace of Cups, Temperance

Romantic Perspective:
Decide to associate with simpatico people and lovers.
Sex life is peaceful when your partner is a responsible person.
Take charge of any insincerity in your love relationship.
Sexual intimacy is the purpose of a love life.
It is your responsibility that the person you are sexually intimate with is doing you no harm.
You are in love with a con artist, with someone who takes advantage: Take control of that relationship.

Business and Other Perspectives:
Deal so cooperatively with rivals that they accomplish your purpose.
The art of the deal is getting people to cooperate with your project.
By having no animosity, by dealing comfortably with their self-interest, you succeed.
Make enemies friends by being so comfortable and endearing when you are with them.
Phony friends that you deal with are beneficial, the way you handle them.
Be so responsible that ill-intentioned people you deal with do you no harm.
Be nice to your opposition and deal with them firmly from your own self-interest.
Be so lovable and so respected and commanding that you have positive interactions even with crooks.

Meanings and Illustrations:

Ace of Cups and Temperance are both intimacy and cooperation, whereas Two of Cups is insincerity, taking advantage, being a secret enemy out to get get someone through friendly (or sexual) dealings.
Over these three Rider Waite Tarot cards, we have taking control, being the one in charge, being responsible and accomplishing one’s purpose or ambition. Right away you see how these apply both to love and commerce.

The caduceus in Two of Cups signifies that this friendly relationship is ill-intentioned on at least one side. The very next card, the Ace of Cups, defuses harm. It means such words as beneficial, harmless, cooperate, comfortable, endearing, love and lovable, and even means ‘making nice’ or being nice. The next card is a logical sequence: Temperance is about direct one-on-one dealing, intimacy; being attuned or simpatico with another person; being with, being partners with, or being on the side of the other person.

Then over them all we have taking responsibility, we have the concept of tacking against the wind – of using all the factors both for and against your project to accomplish that project. This is about dispassionate willpower. And this is, of course, the key card, the keystone, to our story here today.

Advice. We asked about de-stressing and what we got was: Apply your willpower to taking charge of your situation dispassionately so that you can be nice, polite, endearing cooperative and even lovable to all the people you deal with, even the covert enemies, the friends who are out to take advantage or who hold a grudge. As a matter of fact, Two of Cups with Ace of Cups means ‘Love your enemies.’ And this is how and why to do that! It also says to associate with people whom you get along with!

    Playing with Loving thy enemy places my viewing point in my heart, showing the brotherhood of humanity and reflecting Love in all. Very strong and it seemed to shut up the internal judge for a short bit, It is like there is so little friction as the day passes, and this has to be good for the love life! What a great question!!
