The Devil card suggests that one or both partners may be consumed by a particular aspect of the relationship, such as sexual lust, materialism, or even envy. These obsessive behaviors can be damaging to the relationship, and lead to feelings of frustration or unfulfillment.

The 2 Of Swords indicates that it is time to make a decision about whether the unhealthy behaviors should continue, or be addressed head-on. It is up to the individuals involved to take action to rebalance the relationship, and seek a healthier form of connection. Compromise may be necessary in order to move forward in a positive way.

Rather than being driven by external or material concerns, it is important to focus on what makes each other happy and fulfilled. If there is an underlying issue of addiction, greed, materialism, or envy that needs to be addressed, it is important to approach these issues in an open and honest manner. This can help to create a stronger foundation for the relationship, and ensure that it is built upon trust, respect, and open communication.

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 The Devil and 2 Of Swords mean “No”. If you are asking a direct question, then be under no illusions, the answer is a negative one. If you draw The Devil and 2 Of Swords the answer to your question is “NO”.

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 Devil mean?

When it comes to health, The Devil Tarot card can symbolize an unhealthy obsession with material things and the physical body, leading to addictions, extreme vanity and body dysmorphia. It can also represent a deep discontentment with our lives, leading to depression and other psychological issues.

In terms of finances, The Devil card symbolizes a complete lack of control and the danger of becoming enslaved to our own lust for material gain and associated rewards. This tarot card encourages us to take a step back and evaluate our spending habits and whether we truly value our possessions and money or if we are simply addicted to accumulating more.

Relationships can suffer when The Devil card is present as it symbolizes an obsession with the physical and material world, leading to an imbalance in any relationship. The Devil comes with a warning that we don’t get so caught up in our own desires and attachments that we forget to nurture and cultivate healthy relationships with others and our inner selves. This can lead to a lack of trust, an inability to share and an overall lack of self-worth.

Ultimately, The Devil Tarot card is a reminder that we should take inventory of our lives and ensure our relationships, finances and health are in balance. We should strive for moderation, for a healthy lifestyle and for loving relationships that are based on mutual trust and respect.

What does 2 Of Swords mean?

Health: The 2 of Swords Tarot card suggests that it is time to strike a balance between physical and mental health. It is important to remain mindful of the ways in which physical and mental health are intertwined. Now is the time to accept the need to compromise on exercise, diet and lifestyle in order to maintain an overall sense of wellbeing. This card encourages us to take the time to consider alternative approaches to our health, in order to find the best way to take care of our bodies and minds.

Finances: The 2 of Swords Tarot card indicates that now is the time to carefully weigh the pros and cons of any financial decisions that need to be made. This card advises caution when it comes to making any large financial investments. It is important to make objective and balanced decisions that will lead to financial success and stability. It is important to accept the need for compromise during this time in order to ensure long term financial health.

Relationships: The 2 of Swords Tarot card indicates that it is time to consider the interests of others and make appropriate compromises within relationships. This card encourages us to communicate openly and honestly with the people that we care about and be willing to consider their points of view. It is important to accept that we may not always get our way, but that we can still achieve a mutually beneficial outcome by being willing to work together and making balanced compromises. This card reminds us that relationships are a two way street and that we need to give in order to receive.


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 Devil and 2 Of Swords has helped you.
