Two of Cups – Hierophant – Ace of Swords

.

HERE ARE THE WORDS THESE CARDS ARE SAYING IN THIS SPREAD.

.

.

Here are Two of Cups’ phrases and words: philandering; we are in love; flirtation; sex; sex life; influence; sexual attraction; trick this person into; tempted; covert control; sneaky; evil people; a crook; assumptions; smooth operator; corruption; smooth operators; behind my back; mistrusted; behind closed doors

.

Here are today’s main translates, by category, for Two of Cups:

.

DECEIT: trick this person into; tempted; sneaky; evil people; a crook; smooth operator; corruption; smooth operators; behind my back; mistrusted; behind closed doors

UNDISCLOSED THIRD PARTY, COVERT INFLUENCE: influence; covert control;

FACTORS NOT APPARENT: assumptions;

.

.

ILLUSTRATION: What keeps this from being the uncomplicated love affair is that gizmo, the caduceus, between and above the couple who are ‘pledging their troth’ (announcing their engagement). It’s about interfering spirits that affect humans, sometimes through spells. So Two of Cups expands to any undisclosed or not-apparent factor or party to your situation. Assumptions is a good example, and today we have religion, corruption, sneaky people, and mistrust.

.

.

Here are Hierophant’s phrases and words: commitment; it’s all right; it’s a harmless; good clean; fit to print; to pass; civilizing; a churchgoer; living right; if you’re really decent; have good names; look clean; accepted; respectable; straighten out; be good; straight shooter; what’s right

.

Here are today’s main translates, by category, for Hierophant:

.

DECENT, ACCEPTED, RESPECTABLE, CLEAN, ETC.: it’s harmless; it’s all right; good clean; fit to print; to pass; civilizing; living right; if you’re really decent; have good names; look clean; accepted; respectable; straighten out; be good; straight shooter; what’s right

ROMANCE ISSUES, COMMIT: commitment;

RELIGION: a churchgoer;

.

ILLUSTRATION: The fellow in the red robe is the pope, and he is doing the usual public routine ceremony that he does. The ritual is meant for the pubic to see and interpret. A major meaning of Hierophant is ‘face.’ What is illustrated here is the pope, and therefore a church or religion, but Hierophant applies to all individuals and all organizations including governments. The concept that holds most of the meanings of Hierophant together is this distinction between the public’s view of the ceremony and the cognoscenti, the inner circle’s view.

So Hierophant represents the face that you and I, and everybody and everything presents. This surface appearance is a pretense that everyone tacitly agrees to accept at face value. (Face.) So usually Hierophant is about respectability, and sometimes it is about actual decency.

That’s the meaning – its main one – that we use here. We mention commitment, which is Hierophant’s frequent meaning in romance questions. We mention ‘churchgoer,’ since Hierophant has a definite connection to religion. Hierophant also means harmless or ‘no harm,’ which we barely mention.

.

.

Here are Ace of Swords’ phrases and words: is absolute; absolutely; for sure; is the best; you gotta do something; you have to; is so strong; gets the best of; you have to; overcome it; control; have to be; the most; has to; challenge; absolutely; absolute; you have to; you made me; the punishment for; gotta do

.

Here are today’s main translates, by category, for Ace of Swords:

.

ABSOLUTE, ABSOLUTELY, THE MOST (EXTREMES OF – PENULTIMATE): is absolute; absolutely; for sure; is the best; the most; absolutely; absolute;

IMPERATIVE (MUST, HAVE TO, GOTTA): you gotta do something; you have to; have to be; has to; you have to; you made me; gotta do

OVERCOME, TRIUMPH: is so strong; gets the best of; overcome it;

MANDATE, FORCE, ORDER TO: control; the punishment for;

CHALLENGE: challenge;

ILLUSTRATION:  Ace of Swords is black-and-white, is extremes. Its main translate – by far – is absolute and absolutely. It’s second translate is shades of ‘must.’ It’s all one way – no compromise. It’s an order, as in the military. It’s a win for one side and a love for the other definitively. You see a big blade, double-edged, held straight up, crowned, and the crown has the laurel leaves of victory upon it. Ace of Swords is more force than power, though: It means enforcement, challenge, punishment, and defiance. Think of Ace of Swords as ‘Hell, no’ and ‘Make me’ as well as ‘That’s an order’ and ‘My way or the highway.’
