A key aspect of reading your own tarot is interpreting cards. For a beginner interpreting a single card can be fine, as there are plenty of resources to help you out, however interpreting two or more can be very tricky.

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 Empress card and The Chariot card together in particular.

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

What does The Empress and The Chariot mean together?

The Empress and The Chariot tarot cards together represent action and change, with The Empress representing creation and fertility, and The Chariot representing a journey. This combination suggests that something new is being created, and that there is movement and change happening in your life. This could represent a new pregnancy, or a new phase in your relationship. It could also represent a new business venture, or a new phase in your health journey. Whatever it is, it is something that is full of potential and possibility, and that will require some effort and action on your part to bring it into reality.

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 Empress and The Chariot mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Empress and The Chariot 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 The Empress mean?

The Empress Tarot card is a positive omen for health, as it represent abundance and fertility. This card suggests that if you are pregnant or hoping to conceive, you are likely to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. The Empress also indicates good fortune when it comes to finances, suggesting that you will have plenty of resources at your disposal. In relationships, the Empress suggests that you will be able to create a harmonious and loving home life.

What does The Chariot mean?

When it comes to health, The Chariot Tarot card means that it’s time to take action and make some changes. This could involve starting a new fitness routine, changing your diet, or seeking out alternative therapies. It’s also a good time to focus on your mental and emotional health, and to make sure you’re taking care of yourself both physically and mentally.

When it comes to finances, The Chariot Tarot card suggests that now is the time to take some risks and make some changes. This could involve investing in new ventures, taking on new debts, or even starting your own business. It’s also a good time to focus on your long-term financial goals, and to make sure you’re on track to achieve them.

When it comes to relationships, The Chariot Tarot card suggests that it’s time to make some changes and take some risks. This could involve starting a new relationship, or making some changes to an existing one. It’s also a good time to focus on your own needs and wants, and to make sure you’re getting what you need out of your relationships.


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 Empress and The Chariot has helped you.
