Low arcan Two of Cups and low arcan Nine of Swords combination - anxious concerning a close relationship.
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.

Nine of Swords tarot card

Card 2 - Nine of Swords

The Nine of Swords depicts a woman that is sitting on her bed while she holds her head in her hands. It appears as though the woman has just awakened from a very bad nightmare. She seems to be upset, anxious and fearful. Nine swords are hanging on her wall, and a carving that depicts a person defeated by another can be found in her bed. The quilt has been decorated with various astrological symbols and roses. Here we see the same woman in that we saw earlier in the Eight of Swords - and perhaps, she was finally released, but haunted by the nightmares of the suffering she endured while she was left and deserted.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
 Ten of Wands and The Devil (carrying a burden) Five of Cups (sadness and regret) Eight of Swords (trapped by fear)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Star (inspiring) Temperance (balanced emotions) Three of Cups (emotional happiness) The Sun (happiness and contentment). 

Nine of Swords combinations
Other cards suggesting stressful conditions would reinforce the worries found in the Nine of Swords if they also appear in a larger spread, such as, Eight of Swords, Nine of Wands, Ten of Wands, The Devil. Ideally, we wish to see a positive result, so the more favourable the card following the better. Look to surrounding cards to see what is causing the concern.
