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 Wands card together in particular.

The The High Priestess card and 10 Of Wands 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 Wands mean together?

For me, The High Priestess tarot card and The 10 Of Wands tarot card mean that I need to trust my intuition more and not try to shoulder everything myself. I need to take some time for myself, to relax and recharge. I may need to say no to some things in order to maintain my energy and well-being.

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 High Priestess and 10 Of Wands mean “No”. If you are asking a direct question, then be under no illusions, the answer is a negative one. If you draw The High Priestess and 10 Of Wands the answer to your question is “NO”.

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 a reminder that we all have access to hidden knowledge and intuition. In order to make the best decisions for our health, finances and relationships, we need to learn to trust ourselves and our own inner knowing. When we do this, we can tap into a well of wisdom that can help us navigate even the most challenging situations.

The High Priestess also reminds us of the importance of maintaining a healthy balance in our lives. We need to make time for both the outer world of activity and the inner world of reflection and contemplation. By doing so, we can ensure that we are making decisions from a place of knowledge and understanding, rather than from a place of fear or ignorance.

On a practical level, The High Priestess can suggest that now is a good time to take a step back and assess our current situation. We may need to take some time to gather information and get in touch with our intuition before making any major decisions. This is a time for listening more than talking, and for Trusting our instincts.

In terms of our health, The High Priestess is a reminder that our bodies have an inner wisdom that often knows what we need even before we do. It is important to listen to our bodies and give them the rest, relaxation and nourishment they need in order to function at their best.

Financially, The High Priestess can suggest that we need to be careful with our money at this time. We may need to take a more cautious approach to spending, and make sure that we are not blindly following the advice of others. This is a time to trust our own intuition when it comes to financial matters.

In relationships, The High Priestess encourages us to listen to our partner and to the still, small voice within ourselves. We may need to take some time out to reflect on our relationship, and to get in touch with what we really need and want. This is a time for honest communication and for being true to ourselves.

What does 10 Of Wands mean?

The 10 of Wands tarot card is not a great omen for health. It suggests that you may be taking on too much and pushing yourself too hard. This can lead to physical and emotional exhaustion, and may make you susceptible to illness. It is important to take some time out for yourself, to rest and relax, and to nurture your body and mind.

The 10 of Wands can also indicate financial stress. You may be juggling too many bills or responsibilities, and finding it hard to make ends meet. This is a time to cut back on your spending, and to focus on your essential needs. There may be some financial setbacks at this time, but don’t let them get you down. Stay positive and confident, and things will eventually improve.

In relationships, the 10 of Wands suggests that you may be feeling burdened or overwhelmed. You may be taking on too much, or feeling like you are not being supported. It is important to communicate your needs to your partner, and to find a balance that works for both of you. Things may be challenging right now, but with patience and understanding, you can get through this difficult time.


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 Wands has helped you.
