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 6 Of Wands card and 10 Of Swords card together in particular.

The 6 Of Wands card and 10 Of Swords have unique qualities and will interact with each other in different ways depending on what kind of reading you are doing.

What does 6 Of Wands and 10 Of Swords mean together?

The 6 of Wands and the 10 of Swords tarot cards together represent a journey that is coming to a close, but with a significant reward or recognition. The 6 of Wands suggests that you have achieved success and good news is coming your way, while the 10 of Swords implies that you may have reached an ultimate low point before this victory. The combination of these cards reflects the fact that there is a great reward after an obstacle is overcome, and that one can experience a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction even if the struggle to get there was intense. This combination is a reminder that every setback is an opportunity for growth and learning.

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

What does 6 Of Wands and 10 Of Swords mean together for your love life?

The 6 of Wands and the 10 of Swords together signify a journey of love that may start off as a blessing but reach a harsh and painful ending. The 6 of Wands speaks of victory and recognition, of good news and success. It is a card that encourages forward motion, and a reminder that our hard work will eventually be rewarded. The 10 of Swords, however, brings a complete and painful ending to this journey. This could be a relationship that starts off as a blessing, but quickly hits a stalemate. There could be mistrust, resentment and in-fighting as both partners struggle to make the relationship work. Unfortunately, this journey of love eventually reaches a rock-bottom, and the only way out is to surrender and accept the painful ending.

It is important to remember that this ending is not permanent. After the storm has passed, the 6 of Wands will return. This card carries the promise of new beginnings, and the chance to approach love with a renewed sense of confidence and determination. With the 10 of Swords as a reminder of the past, we can use the lessons learnt to build a stronger, more fulfilling relationship. This card promises that if we are willing to put in the hard work, we will be rewarded once more with the victory and recognition of the 6 of Wands.

What does 6 Of Wands and 10 Of Swords mean together for your finances?

The 6 of Wands and 10 of Swords tarot card combination can represent a period of financial success and job security, followed by a dramatic and difficult loss. This combination can indicate that a financial gain will be soon followed by an unexpected and sudden loss of job, business, or savings. It can be a painful experience as the individual will have to start all over again, starting from the rock bottom.

The 6 of Wands in this combination can be interpreted as a sign of victory, accolade and recognition. It symbolizes gaining recognition in the professional field and success in achieving goals. It can also be interpreted as the beginning of a period of prosperity and great financial gain. However, it can also indicate that this success and prosperity may be short-lived and could suddenly come to an abrupt end.

The 10 of Swords tarot card, in this combination, on the other hand is a sign of complete and painful ending. It could indicate that after a period of great success and financial gain, the individual will suddenly experience a tremendous loss. This might be a job loss, significant financial loss or the closure of a business. This will be a difficult and painful experience, leaving the individual at rock bottom.

The 6 of Wands and 10 of Swords tarot card combination can indicate a cycle of sudden success followed by a dramatic and painful loss. It should serve as a warning to the individual to be prepared for the unexpected and to pay attention to the signs of potential loss and hardships. It is important to be aware of the possibility of sudden loss, even in the wake of great success and to plan for it accordingly.

What does 6 Of Wands and 10 Of Swords mean together for your health?

The 6 of Wands and the 10 of Swords Tarot cards together can be interpreted as a warning about the potential pitfalls of the pursuit of success. On the surface, the 6 of Wands is a card of victory and success, but when combined with the 10 of Swords, it can be a reminder that such successes come with consequences. This connection warns us to be aware of our mental and physical health when striving for success, and to be mindful of the balance between our ambitions and our well-being.

The 6 of Wands is a reminder to take pride in our accomplishments and to celebrate our successes, but at the same time, to be mindful of the cost of achieving them. The 10 of Swords, meanwhile, serves as a warning: if we push ourselves too hard and become overly invested in our goals, we could reach an exhausted, painful end, a complete breakdown due to burnout.

The 6 of Wands and the 10 of Swords together offer an important message: while striving to reach our goals, we must also think of our health. We must monitor and care for our mental and physical wellbeing in order to avoid the type of devastation that can occur as a result of pushing ourselves too hard. Striving for success is important, but it should never be done at the cost of our health. Success with our health intact is the ultimate victory, and that is something we can all strive for.

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 6 Of Wands and 10 Of Swords 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 6 Of Wands mean?

The 6 of Wands Tarot card has very positive messages when it comes to health. It suggests that you are likely to experience physical, mental and emotional well-being, and that a period of restorative energy is on the horizon. Achieving goals related to physical health, including reaching suitable fitness levels and establishing healthy routines, is strongly indicated by this card. The 6 of Wands encourages you to focus on healing and restoration, and to have faith that you will ultimately achieve your desired state of good health.

When it comes to finances, the 6 of Wands Tarot card signals positive progress. The promise of gaining rewards from hard-won battles is strong, and it indicates the possibility of achieving long-term financial stability. The satisfaction of settling debts and receiving overdue payments can bring a sense of relief, while a successful career move may bring financial security. The 6 of Wands suggests that careful investments, wise decisions and a bit of luck may lead to increased financial success.

Relationships too can benefit from the 6 of Wands Tarot card, as it signifies a period of recognition and celebration. This card can signify partnerships, leaving you feeling appreciated and acknowledged. A period of harmony and successful communication with friends and family is suggested, and there can be a recognition of a deeper spiritual connection with others. Self-confidence and self-esteem is likely to be increased with this card, as it indicates that you have earned respect from within your social circle. It can also signify an acceptance of who you are and an awareness of the positive beliefs that you have about yourself.

What does 10 Of Swords mean?

The 10 Of Swords indicates that your health may have taken a big hit and that you have reached a point of rock bottom. It suggests that you have hit a point of exhaustion, physical and emotional, and that you need to take a step back and start from here. This card is a warning to take care of yourself, put your health first and try to rebuild your body and mind.

When the 10 of Swords appears in a reading about finances, it suggests that you have reached a point of financial distress, and are now feeling the effects of bad decision-making and lack of planning. This card can also indicate that you have been financially exploited or taken advantage of. It is a warning sign to look over your finances and make sure that you are not being taken advantage of. Take the time to review your financial situation and make the best possible decisions for yourself.

The 10 of Swords can be a sign of an unhealthy and painful ending in your relationships. This card suggests that you may have reached the end of a relationship and that it is time to take a step back and start fresh. It could suggest that you’re at a point where you feel isolated, isolated from the people around you, and have lost a sense of connection. It’s time to reevaluate your relationships and focus on connecting with the people who are important to you.


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 6 Of Wands and 10 Of Swords has helped you.
