Daily Tarot Practice: Commonalities and Differences

I am pulling two cards today. I will compare and contrast them to one another.

The cards: 2 of Cups (reversed) and 7 of Wands.

Commonalities: They both have a yellow sky… without clouds or storms. They both include people. For the most part these two cards are more different then they are alike.

Differences: 2 of Cups has a lush green background full of trees. The 7 of Wands is set in the desert. 2 of Cups has two people and the 7 of Wands only has one (that we can see). In the 2 of Cups, a man and a woman face each other in profile. On the 7 of Wands, the figure is facing forward. The action on the 2 of cups card seems serene, two people enjoying each others company… enjoying a drink… The two are concerned with each other. While the 7 of Wands card is filled with action. The gentleman in the card is in a defensive posture. Are the wands in the foreground being held by interlopers? Will the gentleman have to do more than defend and stand his ground will he be involved in a battle. A battle where he is sadly outnumbered? The 2 of Cups was reversed when drawn and the 6 of Wands was upright.
