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 The Chariot card and Death card together in particular.

The The Chariot card and Death have unique qualities and will interact with each other in different ways depending on what kind of reading you are doing.

What does The Chariot and Death mean together?

The Chariot and Death tarot cards together for me symbolize a major transition—leaving the past behind and moving on to something new. The Chariot card calls for action and change, and a journey, while The Death card signifies big changes, and time to move on. Both cards imply the potential for a new beginning, and a rebirth that can occur through a transformation. There is a sense of urgency that comes with these cards, a feeling that a new era is ready to start, and that a new vehicle is available to take me there.

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

What does The Chariot and Death mean together for your love life?

The Chariot tarot card and The Death tarot card coming together in your love life mean a time of big transformations and endings, with some action and change thrown in. You may be moving on from a relationship that has served its purpose and it’s time to start anew. It could also mean that you are ready to take a journey either within yourself, or with a partner if you are already in a relationship.

This could be a time of breath taking adventure and exploration for you. New relationships and experiences are likely to arise to add to your journey of personal growth and self-awakening. You may also find yourself in a situation that requires courage and strength, and this is the perfect time to turn to your inner resources and trust yourself in the process of change.

The Chariot tarot card implies a strong will and determination while The Death tarot card implies that something may need to come to an end first so that something new can come in its place. It is a sign that you need to confront and face up to your current life situation, otherwise you can’t be open to the changes that are coming.

This is also a great time for you to focus on yourself and your needs. Allow yourself to let go of what no longer serves you so that you can make room for a better, healthier, and more fulfilling love life. Don’t be intimidated by the big changes that are coming, because with the proper preparation and mindset, they could bring you closer to true love.

What does The Chariot and Death mean together for your finances?

The Chariot tarot card and The Death tarot card together may suggest that you are on the brink of a major change in your life. It could be that you are about to embark on a financial journey and make a big shift in your finances, such as changing jobs. This card combination portends big changes, so it’s important to be prepared for whatever is coming.

The Chariot suggests travel, a new job or career, and the potential for a financial windfall as you move forward. You are likely to feel a renewed sense of control, and a determination to make it all happen. Your natural drive, ambition, and persistence will be helpful in making the changes and achieving the goals you have set for yourself.

The Death card, however, means that some things may have to end, and that it is time to part ways with the old and move on to the new. This could mean leaving a job, and all the benefits and security that come with it. It’s important to remember that when one door closes another opens, and with this card combination, you have the potential for something far better than what you had before.

The combination of these two cards suggests that change is coming, and that it could be a blessing in disguise. Even though it may be bittersweet to leave your current financial situation, you have the potential to achieve great things if you are willing to embrace change. Be brave, be bold, and be prepared to work hard to make it all happen.

It is time to take action and move forward into a journey of transformation and rebirth.

The Chariot tarot card suggests that it is time to start a new path and make use of your own strength and power to propel yourself forward. Taking the time to plan and prepare for this journey is essential. Do some research to find what works best for your health and make sure that you have the energy to make the trip.

The Death tarot card warns that some of the changes may come with endings. It is possible that habits and practices you have used in the past to stay healthy may no longer be serving you. Take the time to assess what those habits and practices were and how you can move on and start something new.

Making the change in your health may be difficult and could take some time to adjust. However, with the right attitude and planning, it will be worth it in the end. You might find new things that you enjoy doing which make you feel healthier, more energized and more content than ever before.

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 The Chariot and Death 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 The Chariot mean?

The Chariot Tarot card is a powerful symbol of strength and puts you in charge of your destiny. When it appears in a reading, this card encourages you to take action, be decisive and push forward in all aspects of life.

When it comes to health, The Chariot Tarot card suggests that it’s time for you to take charge and make positive changes to your health and lifestyle. This could mean making healthier food choices, taking up regular exercise or making sure you get enough rest. Whatever changes you make should be done consciously, with the intention of improving your physical and mental wellbeing.

If finances are an issue, The Chariot Tarot card is a sign that now is the time to focus on your financial goals. This card encourages you to be disciplined and take control of your finances. Being mindful of your spending and setting up a budget will help you take charge of your financial situation and ensure your financial security.

When it comes to relationships, The Chariot Tarot card encourages you to take control. This card suggests that you be proactive and take the initiative in your relationships. Directing the course of your relationships and taking the lead will give you a sense of empowerment and confidence. If your relationships are struggling, this is the time to make positive changes and get back on course.

What does Death mean?

The Death Tarot card is associated with not only physical death, but also the death of a part of oneself. It is a symbol of the end of a cycle, a signal that one has come to the end of an era, and the start of a new beginning.

When it comes to health, the Death Tarot card often means that it is time to give up an unhealthy habit or lifestyle that has been holding us back for far too long. It encourages us to face our fears and break free from what is no longer serving us, so that we can take steps towards better health and well-being. This card can also symbolize healing after a major illness, or the end of a particular health problem.

When it comes to finances, the Death Tarot card can represent the end of an era of financial struggle, a time when old debts can be paid off, and a new era of prosperity may be beginning. This card can also indicate a significant change in our financial lifestyle, such as taking on a new job, starting a new business, or making a major investment.

When it comes to relationships, the Death Tarot card often symbolizes the end of an unhealthy relationship that is no longer serving us. It is a signal that it is time to move on, to let go of what is not working, and to make room for a new relationship to come into our lives. It can also represent the death of a friendship, or a deep transformation in the way we interact with others.

The Death Tarot card is not necessarily a negative card. It is a reminder that change is inevitable and that sometimes it is necessary to make room for new growth and transformation. It is a reminder to take the time to reflect on the past, so that we can move forward with intention and clarity into the future.


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 The Chariot and Death has helped you.
