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

Things are a bit tricky for this combination, as 10 Of Wands and King Of Wands mean different things. The cards are unsure about your question, or the answer to the question has not yet been decided.

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 Wands mean?

Health: The 10 of Wands Tarot card has a direct impact on your health. It reflects a time of being overburdened and feeling buried in stress, which can lead to a variety of physical ailments. You may feel constantly exhausted, have difficulty sleeping, and be quick to anger or frustration. You may find it increasingly hard to concentrate, and you may start to feel physically sick from the strain of carrying all of the responsibilities you have. Your immune system may become weak and vulnerable, making you prone to infection and illness.

Finances: The 10 of Wands Tarot card also indicates a time where you may be dealing with financial stress. With all the burdens you are carrying, there is an increased financial strain. You may find it difficult to manage bills, save money or invest in the future. With these financial pressures, it’s important to take time to evaluate your financial situation and create a budget in order to prioritize your expenses. This will help to alleviate your stress and keep you on track to meet your goals in the future.

Relationships: The 10 of Wands Tarot card also has an impact on relationships. When you are carrying around all of these burdens, your connection with others takes a hit. Your patience for others may wear thin, and you may find yourself snapping at friends, colleagues and family. It’s important to take a step back and give yourself permission to take a break from all the burdens. This will help to restore balance in your relationships, as well as in your life.
