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 The High Priestess card together in particular.

The The Fool card and The High Priestess have unique qualities and will interact with each other in different ways depending on what kind of reading you are doing.

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 youa re in with the second horizontal card being the “challege” 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 clairty 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.

What does The Fool mean?

The Fool means fresh hope for me. It means taking chances and trying new things. It means exploring new paths and adventures. And it means starting anew.

For my health, The Fool means taking care of myself and my body. It means eating healthy foods and exercising regularly. It means listening to my body and taking care of myself mentally and emotionally.

For my finances, The Fool means taking risks. It means investing in myself and my future. It means being responsible with my money and making wise choices with my spending.

And for my relationship, The Fool means being open to new experiences. It means communicating openly and honestly with my partner. It means trusting my partner and being trusting of myself.

What does The High Priestess mean?

The High Priestess is a reminder to trust your intuition and go with your gut instinct. It is a card of mystery, secrets and hidden knowledge. It is a reminder to be patient and to wait for the right time to act. The High Priestess is a card of balance and harmony. It is a reminder to take time for yourself, to relax and to recharge your batteries. The High Priestess is a card of peace and tranquillity. It is a reminder to trust the process and to have faith.

Conclusion

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 The High Priestess has helped you.
