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 Judgment and 7 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 Judgment mean?
Health: The Judgment Tarot card is all about understanding how to use clarity and decision making to improve one’s health. This card encourages us to take a moment and ask ourselves if our current health decisions are in alignment with our true selves.

Finances: The Judgment Tarot card can be a reminder to step back and look at our financial habits objectively. This card encourages us to question whether our financial decisions are aligned with our values, goals and priorities. It can inspire us to make responsible and wise choices that set us up for a secure financial future. The Judgment Tarot card points to the possibility of uncovering underlying motivations or patterns that may be impacting our financial choices in negative ways, such as fear or insecurity.
Relationships: The Judgment Tarot card can remind us to take a step back and consider how our decisions are impacting our relationships. Sometimes we get stuck in patterns that keep us disconnected from the people that matter most.

Ask yourself, are you making decisions that are helping or hindering your relationships? Having this awareness can help guide you to make decisions that foster connection and understanding. The Judgment Tarot card is a reminder to recognize that our relationships should be a source of growth and fulfillment, not anxiety or guilt.
