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 Ace Of Wands card together in particular.
The The Fool card and Ace Of Wands 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 Ace Of Wands mean together?
The Fool tarot card means fresh hope, take chances, new paths and adventures, beginnings. The Ace Of Wands tarot card means new project, inspiration, the urge to create. For me, these two tarot cards mean that it is time for me to take a chance on something new and exciting. I have been feeling stagnant lately and I know that I need to get out there and explore. I have been wanting to start a new project or venture for awhile now, and these two tarot cards are telling me that now is the time to do it. I feel inspired and motivated to get started, and I am ready to embark on a new adventure. This is a time of new beginnings for me, and I am excited to see what the future holds.
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 Ace Of Wands mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Fool and Ace Of Wands 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 great card for those seeking fresh hope in their lives. This card suggests that now is the time to take some risks and explore new paths and adventures. If you have been feeling stagnant or stuck in a rut, The Fool card is a sign that it is time to shake things up and make some changes. This is also a great card for those starting something new, whether it is a new relationship, a new job, or a new health regime. The Fool card indicates that there is potential for great success and happiness, but you need to be open to new possibilities and willing to take some risks.
What does Ace Of Wands mean?
The Ace Of Wands is a very positive Tarot card, and it bodes well for all areas of your life. When it comes to your health, it suggests that you have the energy and motivation to improve your fitness and wellbeing. The Ace Of Wands also indicates that you are full of inspiration when it comes to your finances, and that you are able to make sound investments and financial decisions.

You have the ability to communicate effectively and to build trust and mutual respect.
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 Ace Of Wands has helped you.
