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 The Magician card together in particular.
The The Fool card and The Magician 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 Magician mean together?
For me, The Fool means that it is time to take some chances and explore some new paths. I have been feeling a bit stuck lately and need some fresh inspiration. The Magician means that I need to focus my creative energy and put my visions into action. I have some great ideas, but I need to focus and make them happen.
Health-wise, I think The Fool means that it is time to take some risks and try some new things. I need to experiment and find what works best for me. The Magician means that I need to be more proactive about my health and take charge of my own wellness. I can no longer rely on others to tell me what to do. I need to listen to my body and trust my own intuition.
In my relationship, The Fool means that it is time to take some chances and try something new. We have been in a bit of a rut lately and need to spice things up. The Magician means that I need to be more proactive and put my visions of our relationship into action. I need to be more intentional about how I show my partner love and affection.
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 embarking on new adventures. It means exploring new paths and discovering new things. The Fool also represents new beginnings. In terms of my health, the Fool means that I should take care of myself and my body. I should eat healthy foods and exercise regularly. I should also listen to my body and pay attention to any signs of illness or injury. In terms of my finances, the Fool means that I should be careful with my money. I should save as much as possible and only spend money on things that I need. I should also invest in my future by setting aside money for retirement or for my children’s education. In terms of my relationship, the Fool means that I should take the time to get to know my partner. I should communicate openly and honestly with him or her. I should also be willing to take risks and try new things.
What does The Magician mean?
The Magician is a card that reminds us that we are the creators of our own reality. We have the power to turn our visions into reality through focused creativity and inspired action. This is a time to trust our intuition and tap into our inner power to manifest our desires.
When it comes to our health, The Magician is a reminder to stay focused on our goals and to take inspired action towards a healthier lifestyle. We may need to experiment with different approaches to find what works best for us, but ultimately we have the power to heal ourselves.
When it comes to our finances, The Magician is a reminder to stay focused on our goals and to take inspired action towards financial abundance. We may need to experiment with different approaches to find what works best for us, but ultimately we have the power to create the financial reality we desire.

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 Magician has helped you.
