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 Queen Of Pentacles card together in particular.
The The Fool card and Queen 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 Queen Of Pentacles mean together?
The Fool tarot card speaks of fresh hope and new beginnings. This may be a time to take chances and explore new paths and adventures. The Queen Of Pentacles tarot card suggests that you are a resourceful person who is fertile and domestic. These two tarot cards suggest that you are embarking on a new phase in your life where you will be exploring new things and expanding your horizons. This is a time of growth and abundance. You are being called to step into your power and create the life you desire. Trust your intuition and take action on your dreams.
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 Queen Of Pentacles mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Fool and Queen 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?
When The Fool Tarot card appears in a reading, it is a sign that fresh hope is on the way. This is a time to take chances and explore new paths, both literally and figuratively. The Fool is a reminder that we all have to start somewhere, and that every journey begins with a single step. This is a good time to take risks, both in our personal and professional lives. If we’ve been feeling stuck, The Fool can help us to see the world in a new light and find the courage to make a change.
Health-wise, The Fool is a reminder to take care of our bodies and minds. This is a time to focus on our physical and mental health, and to make sure we’re taking care of ourselves. We may need to make some changes to our lifestyle, such as eating better or exercising more. Financially, The Fool is a reminder to be careful with our money. This is not a time to take unnecessary risks, but rather to be conservative with our spending. We may need to save up for something important, or we may need to cut back on our luxuries.
In relationships, The Fool is a reminder to be open-minded and tolerant. This is a time to accept others for who they are, and to not try to change them. We should also be open to new relationships, and to taking chances in our existing ones.

The Queen of Pentacles is a card that signifies a resourceful person. She is often associated with fertility and domesticity, and is a very positive card for health, finances and relationships. The queen is a symbol of abundance and prosperity, and her presence in a reading indicates that these things are within reach. She is also a reminder to take care of oneself and one’s home, as this is the foundation of a happy and fulfilling life.
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 Queen Of Pentacles has helped you.
