However, if you have been practising single card readings for a while a 2 card spread will be a great introduction into reading multiple cards.

As you’ve found this page, you’re probably wondering how to interpret the 10 Of Swords card and 7 Of Cups card together in particular.

The 10 Of Swords card and 7 Of Cups have unique qualities and will interact with each other in different ways depending on what kind of reading you are doing.

What does 10 Of Swords and 7 Of Cups mean together?

The 10 Of Swords and The 7 Of Cups tarot cards together suggest that you are at the end of a painful situation and the choices before you might seem overwhelming. You may feel like you have been through the wringer and need to make hard decisions. This could be the time to take a step back and make a commitment to yourself rather than making a rash decision. It could be that a painful ending will lead to a fresh start and the potential for something new. You can use this time as an opportunity to reflect on how you can honor your feelings, take care of yourself, and make decisions that respect your needs.

The meaning may differ depending on what you are asking. Here are some common questions and their possible meanings

What does 10 Of Swords and 7 Of Cups mean together for your love life?

When it comes to love, the 10 of swords and the 7 of cups tarot cards can offer a stark warning. This combination can symbolize a complete and painful ending in the relationship, a rock bottom in the sense of the depth of the heartache and disappointment it can bring.

The 7 of cups, with its many choices of paths, warns us to be careful before committing to anything in our relationships. We may think we know where the relationship is going and make assumptions, but when the 10 of swords reveals itself, all those paths start to unravel and crumble, leaving us feeling overwhelmed and confused.

This combination can also indicate that we may have been too focused on the pursuit of love, or simply held on to it for too long when it was no longer working. We may have become too dependent on our partner, not seeing the flaws in the relationship and not taking the time to make sure that it was working for both of us. The 10 of swords warns us that if we don’t take the time to think things through and take responsibility for our own happiness, the relationship could end in disappointment.

Finally, if we fail to pay attention to the 7 of cups and its warning to weigh our options carefully before committing to a relationship, we may find ourselves falling into the same patterns of disappointment over and over. We may find ourselves stuck in a cycle of never being able to make commitments to love and relationships, never being able to move forward, because of the fear of being hurt again. This fear can be hard to overcome and often represents a low point in our love lives that we don’t feel like we can rise out of.

The 10 of swords and the 7 of cups tarot cards combined in terms of our love life, can represent a stark warning of the depths of heartache and disappointment that can result from not taking responsibility for our own happiness and pursuing relationships with caution.

What does 10 Of Swords and 7 Of Cups mean together for your finances?

The combination of the 10 of Swords and the 7 of Cups in terms of finances and job could be interpreted to mean a financial and professional situation that has reached a painful and complete end. The 10 of Swords represents a situation that has been completely destroyed, which could mean the loss of a job or a financial crisis that has left you destitute. In either case, it is a very severe and difficult situation that requires an immediate change in order to begin to recover.

The 7 of Cups, meanwhile, speaks of an inability to make a decision or commitment. There are too many choices and it can be confusing to find the best course of action. In terms of finances or job seeking, this might mean that you are uncertain of what to do next or overwhelmed with the options available. You may feel unable to choose between a risky investment or a secure job, for example, and find yourself in a state of limbo.

The combination of these two tarot cards could be interpreted as a need to break out of the stagnation and find a way to progress. You may need to make some tough decisions in order to break away from the situation you are in, but once you do, you can start to rebuild your finances and job prospects. It is likely to be a difficult and challenging journey, but if you are able to commit to a particular path and make progress, you could eventually find yourself in a more stable and secure situation.

What does 10 Of Swords and 7 Of Cups mean together for your health?

When The 10 of Swords and the 7 of Cups are drawn together for your health, it can be a sign that you may have hit rock bottom in a physical or mental health crisis. You could be overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices and treatments available, making it hard to commit to your path forward. It could also suggest a tumultuous situation in which you have exhausted every available option, leaving you feeling completely helpless and lost.

This confluence of tarot cards may indicate that it is time to take a step back and look at the big picture. It’s time to assess the situation to determine what the best course of action is moving forward. Without proper guidance, the wrong decision may have serious consequences that can further exacerbate the issue.

When these cards appear together, it is essential to consult a healthcare professional and have a comprehensive evaluation done. This will help to get to the root cause of the problem and develop a treatment plan accordingly. It is also important to trust your intuition and practice self-care by taking walks, getting enough sleep, and engaging in social activities that make you happy.

The combination of these two tarot cards suggests an ending, but it does not have to be a painful one. With the right guidance and careful planning, you can make your way to the other side and find a healthy balance. The important thing is to take it one step at a time and be patient with yourself.

The meaning of the cards will depend on what kind of reading you are doing and the question you asked the deck. This is a guide covering the general meanings of the cards and how they relate to each other.

Common 2-card spreads

Whilst it’s great to know who these two cards interact with each other, it’s important to note that the meaning will depend on the context of your spread

The most common 2 card spreads I recommend to newer readers are:

  • The 2 card cross (otherwise known as “The Fool’s Journey”)
  • The 2 card “Yes or No”

“The Fool’s Journey”

Setup: The two card cross is where you place two cards face up, one placed vertically and with one laying horizontally over

Interpretation: The 2 cards represent a “situation” and a “challenge”. The first card will describe the situation you are in with the second horizontal card being the “challenge” crossing you (literally crossing you in this case!)

Reading: Using the overviews in this guide is a great way to start. First, look at the meanings of the 2 cards, and see how they might relate either as your “situation” or “challenge”. Once you have that you can look at the general overview for how the two cards interact with each other.

The benefit of this spread is that it can give clarity when you’re feeling uncertain or anxious. Once you have clarity of thought, and a strong idea of what your challenge is you can find solutions to help your situation

The 2 card “Yes or No”

Setup: The 2 card “Yes or No” is where you place two cards face up side by side, whilst asking your deck a “yes or no” question.

Interpretation: Each card in a tarot deck has a “yes” or a “no” meaning. Look at the meanings of each card, and you will have your answer.

The benefit of this is you get a stronger yes or no compared to a single card draw. You may find you often get a mix of “yes or no”, and this is fine. It simply means there is doubt, or things are not yet clear.

Yes or No meaning

Both 10 Of Swords and 7 Of Cups mean “No”. If you are asking a direct question, then be under no illusions, the answer is a negative one. If you draw 10 Of Swords and 7 Of Cups the answer to your question is “NO”.

The “Yes” and “No” meanings can differ from reader to reader. The meanings here are based on what I believe are the generally accepted definitions.

What does 10 Of Swords mean?

The Ten of Swords Tarot card often represents the end of something, particularly a difficult and challenging period in one’s life. This card symbolizes the total collapse of the old and the beginning of something new. In the context of physical health, the Ten of Swords symbolizes a major setback, such as a serious illness or an injury that disrupts one’s routine and causes significant pain and suffering. This card can also be a warning of potential health risks that may arise if one’s lifestyle choices are not changed.

As for finances, the Ten of Swords indicates a catastrophic financial loss, a settlement reached after a long and expensive court case, or a complete overhaul of one’s business. This card often represents a period of financial turmoil and instability, when one’s options seem limited and the future is uncertain.

Finally, the Ten of Swords can represent the end of a relationship and can predict the dissolution of a partnership, whether through a death, a breakup, a divorce, or a betrayal. This card can also reflect the crumbling of a friendship or other form of relationship due to distance, different values, or an inability to move on from the past. This card often signals a period of loneliness, confusion and despair as one navigates through a changed landscape.

What does 7 Of Cups mean?

When it comes to health, The 7 Of Cups Tarot card tells us that we may be facing too many options. We may not be sure which path to take when it comes to our health and wellness. We may be tempted to try every possible solution and end up feeling overwhelmed. This card can indicate that the best course of action is to sit down and consider all of our options, and then make a plan. Taking the time to consider all of our choices and making a mindful decision is the best way to move forward with our health.

When it comes to finances, The 7 Of Cups Tarot card encourages us to be mindful of our choices. This card suggests that we may be tempted to dip into our funds to fulfill a desire, but that it may not be the best choice. The 7 Of Cups Tarot card tells us to take a step back and consider our financial situation. We may need to make a budget and stick to it in order to make sure that we are able to make sound long-term decisions that will further our financial goals.

When it comes to relationships, The 7 Of Cups Tarot card tells us that we may be tempted to make too many commitments. We may find ourselves feeling overwhelmed and indecisive. This card encourages us to take a step back and consider our current relationships and decide whether we can make meaningful commitments to them or not. We may need to slow down, think before we speak and make sure that we are making decisions that we can stand by for the long run.


Understanding how the meaning of a reading changes once you start involving more than one card can be tricky. This will come with time and practice, however I hope this guide on what your cards might be telling you when you draw 10 Of Swords and 7 Of Cups has helped you.
