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 High Priestess card and 10 Of Cups card together in particular.
The The High Priestess card and 10 Of Cups have unique qualities and will interact with each other in different ways depending on what kind of reading you are doing.
What does The High Priestess and 10 Of Cups mean together?
The High Priestess tarot card and The 10 Of Cups tarot card together mean that it is time to trust your intuition and let go of any secrets that you may be holding onto. This is a time for contentment and fulfillment in your relationships, both with your family and with your significant other. You will find that all the love and support you need is right there within reach. Allow yourself to be open and receptive to all the good that is coming your way.
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
Things are a bit tricky for this combination, as The High Priestess and 10 Of Cups mean different things. The cards are unsure about your question, or the answer to the question has not yet been decided.
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 High Priestess mean?
The High Priestess Tarot card is often associated with secrets and mystery. In terms of health, this suggests that there may be some hidden health concerns that you are not aware of. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it is important to trust your intuition and be aware of any changes in your health. In terms of finances, this card suggests that you may need to be more careful with your money. There may be some unexpected expenses that you were not prepared for. In terms of relationships, this card suggests that you should trust your intuition. If you feel like something is off, it probably is. Be careful about who you trust and be aware of any red flags.
What does 10 Of Cups mean?
Health: The 10 Of Cups is a positive sign for health, indicative of good luck, fortunateness, and fulfillment. It suggests that your current health situation is stable and satisfactory, and that you can expect improvements in the near future. As such, this is a card that encourages you to maintain a positive outlook and take care of yourself, as good things are on the horizon.
Finances: The 10 Of Cups is also a positive sign for finances, indicating that you are likely to experience financial abundance and good fortune in the near future.

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 High Priestess and 10 Of Cups has helped you.
