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 Page Of Swords card together in particular.
The The Fool card and Page Of Swords 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 Page Of Swords mean together?
The Fool tarot card can mean that it is time to take a chance on something new. This may be a new adventure, a new path in life, or simply a new way of doing things.

The Page Of Swords tarot card can represent a person who is curious and always asking questions. This person may also enjoy gossiping and spying on others. In a reading, this card can indicate that there are prying eyes or that someone is trying to uncover the truth.
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 Page Of Swords mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Fool and Page Of Swords 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.
