Low arcan Two of Cups and low arcan Eight of Swords combination - feeling trapped in a relationship, or a situation surrounding it.
Two of Cups tarot card

Card 1 - Two of Cups

This card shows an image of a man and a woman that are exchanging their cups in a ceremony. There is the symbol of Hermes caduceus in between which is often related to negotiation, trade, cosmic energy, protection, proper conduct, and duality. The Two of Cups refers to something quite positive, for it is one of the most auspicious cards in the tarot for relationships, whether romantic, business or otherwise. It suggests a new partnership is in the works, and it will be created with balance, respect, and honor. Above the caduceus is a chimera, which symbolizes fire and passion also governs this partnership.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
The Lovers (love relationship) all supporting marriage cards, Temperance (harmonious bond)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Three of Swords (quarrels and upheaval) Five of Cups (let down or betrayal).    

Two of Cups combinations
For many readers, this is the card of engagement or marriage, although I prefer the Ten of Cups (but this is personal preference, as many see the Ten as happy home life, covered in later section). With the number two I see it as ‘continuation of,’ a progression, but in combination with other marriage cards would form part of that progression and association.

Eight of Swords tarot card

Card 2 - Eight of Swords

On the Eight of Swords is a woman who is tied up and blindfolded. There are eight swords placed strategically around her in a way that restricts her movement as though she is in some kind of trap or jail. However, it seems as though whoever built the trap was a little lazy or hasty, leaving some open space where she could escape. But because of the blindfold preventing the woman from seeing, she has no way of finding her way out of this trap. The barren land around her might signify a lack of creativity of some sort, while the grey sky in the background can signify despair, since there she feels that there is no hope of her breaking free from the kind of situation that she is bound to. If only she could take the blindfold off, she would see that she could simply just walk out of this situation.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Two of Swords (stalemate) Hanging Man (suspension) The Devil (entrapment). 

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Justice (balanced thought and logic) The Chariot (focussed thought and exerting will)

Depending upon position, see what this card is linked with and the order they’re presented, ideally we look for a card following to show what could release the situation. Usually the card preceding will show the root of the problem.
