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 practicing 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 Lovers card together in particular.

The The Fool card and The Lovers 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 The Lovers mean together?

The Fool and The Lovers represents a time of fresh hope and new beginnings. This is a time to take chances and explore new paths. It is also a time to deepen your love and commitment to your partner. This combination suggests that you are strong together and can overcome any obstacle.

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.

What does The Fool mean?

The Fool means fresh hope for me. I feel like I can take chances and explore new paths. I feel like I can begin new adventures and begin new chapters in my life. I feel like my health will improve and my finances will stabilize. I feel like my relationship will blossom and grow.

The relationship is likely to be supportive and committed, and both partners are likely to be dedicated to making it work. This is a relationship in which both partners feel they can rely on each other and are willing to make sacrifices for each other.

You are likely to feel good about yourself and your body, and you are likely to have a positive outlook on life.
