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 Judgment and 9 Of Pentacles mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw Judgment and 9 Of Pentacles the answer to your query is “YES”.

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 Card in Tarot readings associated with health typically signals a time of clarity and self-reflection.

Finances: The Judgment Card in Tarot readings concerning finances is associated with making final decisions, sometimes waking you up to the realization that you’ve been ignoring or avoiding a certain financial obligation. It can also be a sign of a new opportunity to make a better decision that will benefit your financial status. This could mean making a difficult decision to pay off debt, or a more pleasant one such as improving your savings. Either way, it’s a chance to make a fresh start and to assess your current situation in order to move forward in a more financially secure manner.

Relationships: The Judgment Card in Tarot readings regarding relationships signifies that you’re ready to look at things from a different perspective. It’s an opportunity to look at the relationship from all angles and come to an honest conclusion about where things are standing.
