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 6 Of Pentacles card together in particular.
The The Fool card and 6 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 6 Of Pentacles mean together?
The Fool tarot card means that it is time for me to take a chance and embark on a new adventure. This may be something as simple as starting a new hobby or exploring a new interest. It is also a time to put my trust in my intuition and take a leap of faith into the unknown. The 6 Of Pentacles tarot card suggests that I may need to ask for help or be generous with my time and resources at this time. This is a time to be mindful of giving and receiving in order to create balance in my life.
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 6 Of Pentacles mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Fool and 6 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?
The Fool Tarot card is a reminder to live life to the fullest and take chances. It is a symbol of new beginnings and hope. In terms of health, The Fool encourages you to listen to your body and trust your intuition. It is also a reminder to stay positive and have faith in the healing process. In terms of finances, The Fool suggests that you take risks and follow your dreams. It is also a reminder to stay humble and be grateful for what you have. In terms of relationships, The Fool encourages you to be open to new experiences and to take the time to get to know yourself first.
What does 6 Of Pentacles mean?
In regards to health, The 6 of Pentacles suggests that help will be given or received in order to maintain good health. This may come in the form of financial assistance to pay for medical bills, or it could be something as simple as a friend offering to drive you to your doctor’s appointment. Whatever the case may be, this act of generosity will be beneficial to your health in the long run.
When it comes to finances, The 6 of Pentacles suggests that money will flow in and out generosity. You may find yourself giving money to a friend in need, or receiving a financial windfall from an unexpected source. Either way, this card shows that money is not something to be hoarded, but rather something to be shared with those who need it.
In relationships, The 6 of Pentacles suggests that giving and receiving are both important. Whether it’s giving your time and attention to a friend, or receiving a gesture of kindness from someone you love, this card reminds us that relationships are give-and-take. By showing generosity to those we care about, we can strengthen the bonds that connect us.
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 6 Of Pentacles has helped you.
