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 Death and 6 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 Death mean?

Health: The Death Tarot card can be symbolic of a time for transformation when it comes to health. Death represents an end but also an opportunity for a new beginning. Whether it’s a physical or mental health issue, the Death card encourages us to explore our inner self and to assess our lifestyle and habits. It’s a particularly important card if you’re stuck in a cycle of poor health and need to make a change. The card encourages us to take control of our health and make the necessary changes to create a better life.

Finances: When it comes to money, the Death Tarot card could be signalling the end of a financial cycle or season, prompting you to move on and embrace change. It’s also possible it could stand for a major life transition like changing careers or starting a business. Whatever the case, it is warning you that this is a time of transformation and change and not to fear the end of a period of stability, as something new and different could be just around the corner.

Relationships: The Death Tarot card signals a time for endings and new beginnings in relationships. It can suggest a time for a relationship to come to fruition or for it to end. In either case, it signals a time of transformation and change and encourages us to embrace the potential of new connections and opportunities. It’s not just romantic relationships that this card applies to. It can also refer to work relationships, friendships or any other relationships in your life. Death can be seen as a time to learn from the past and let go of the things that no longer serve you.

What does 6 Of Wands mean?

The 6 of Wands Tarot card is an incredibly positive card, representing victory and success in all aspects of life. When it comes to health, this card can stand for both physical and mental health, encouraging you to push yourself to ensure that you are taking the best care of yourself possible. It can also stand for protection and healing, urging you to stay protected and healthy. When it comes to finances, this card suggests that you will have financial success and gain recognition for your hard work. It can also signify abundance and riches, indicating that any investments or work that you put into your finances will be successful.

The 6 of Wands card also relates to relationships. It symbolizes social recognition and success. It suggests that you will receive positive feedback and recognition from your peers, colleagues, family and friends. It also stands for victory and triumph in your personal relationships, urging you to be confident and ask for the things that you desire. This card encourages you to take risks and trust in your own intuition. Finally, it signifies celebration and joy, reminding you to appreciate the relationships in your life and make the most out of them.


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 Death and 6 Of Wands has helped you.
