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 Fool card and 4 Of Pentacles card together in particular.
The The Fool card and 4 Of Pentacles have unique qualities and will interact with each other in different ways depending on what kind of reading you are doing.
What does The Fool and 4 Of Pentacles mean together?
The Fool tarot card means fresh hope for me, and it tells me to take chances in my life. It also suggests that I start new adventures and explore new paths. The 4 Of Pentacles tarot card suggests that I may be greedy or have a desire for long-term security.
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 Fool and 4 Of Pentacles mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Fool and 4 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 The Fool mean?
For health, The Fool Tarot card means that it is time to take chances and explore new paths. This may mean trying out new health treatments or therapies, or simply changing your routine in order to improve your overall health. It is also a good time to start fresh with your health, by making healthy lifestyle choices and committing to a new fitness regime.
For finances, The Fool Tarot card means that it is time to take risks and embark on new ventures. This may mean investing in new business opportunities, or taking a chance on a new financial venture. It is also a good time to start fresh with your finances, by creating a new budget or financial plan.
For relationships, The Fool Tarot card means that it is time to take chances and explore new paths. This may mean trying out new relationship styles or committing to a new relationship. It is also a good time to start fresh with your relationships, by making positive changes in your communication and behaviour.
What does 4 Of Pentacles mean?
The 4 Of Pentacles can indicate that someone is feeling greedy or stingy, and is hanging onto their resources tightly. They may be feeling insecure about their finances or their health, and so are hoarding what they have. This can lead to problems in relationships, as the person may be unwilling to share what they have with others. If this is the case, it is important to try to overcome these feelings, and to trust that there is enough to go around. In terms of health, The 4 Of Pentacles can indicate that someone is feeling anxious or stressed about their health, and so may be clinging onto good health tightly. This can lead to problems if the person becomes obsessed with their health, and starts to neglect other areas of their life. It is important to find a balance, and to remember that health is only one part of life. In terms of finances, The 4 Of Pentacles can indicate that someone is feeling greedy or stingy, and is hanging onto their money tightly. They may be feeling insecure about their financial situation, and so are unwilling to spend or invest what they have. This can lead to problems in relationships, as the person may be unwilling to share their resources with others. If this is the case, it is important to try to overcome these feelings, and to trust that there is enough to go around.
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 Fool and 4 Of Pentacles has helped you.
