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 2 Of Pentacles card together in particular.

The The High Priestess card and 2 Of Pentacles 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 2 Of Pentacles mean together?

The High Priestess and the 2 of Pentacles tarot cards mean that you should trust your intuition and listen to your inner voice. Secrets will be revealed to you, and you will have to make some tough choices. You may feel like you are being pulled in many different directions, but you need to stay focused and weigh all of your options carefully.

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 2 Of Pentacles 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 2 Of Pentacles 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?

Health: The High Priestess Tarot card is a reminder to trust your body and your instincts. If you are feeling off, make sure to listen to your body and get the rest or care that you need. This is also a time to reflect on your diet and whether you are nourishing your body in the way that you truly want to. Consider adding more whole, organic foods into your diet, and giving yourself permission to indulge in some of your favourite treat foods in moderation.

Finances: The High Priestess is a reminder that there is always more to learn when it comes to financial matters. Take some time to study up on investing, saving and budgeting. This is also a time to trust your intuition when it comes to financial decision-making. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help from a financial advisor or planner if you need it.

Relationships: The High Priestess is a reminder that healthy relationships are built on trust, communication and respect. If you’re feeling like your relationship is off-kilter, make sure to talk to your partner about what’s going on. It’s also important to spend time alone to nurture your own sense of self. Don’t be afraid to say no to social invitations if you need some time to yourself.

What does 2 Of Pentacles mean?

The Two of Pentacles Tarot card suggests that you have two choices in your health, finances and relationships. You may be feeling pulled in different directions and are struggling to keep everything in balance. This is a time to take stock of your situation and decide what is most important to you. You may need to make some tough decisions, but ultimately, you will be able to find a way to maintain a healthy balance in your life.

In terms of your health, the Two of Pentacles suggests that you need to find a way to balance your physical and mental health. This may mean making some lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthier diet or exercising more regularly. It is also important to find time for relaxation and stress-relief, as too much stress can lead to physical and emotional health problems.

When it comes to your finances, the Two of Pentacles suggests that you need to be careful with your spending. This is not a time to take on unnecessary debt or make any major financial decisions. Instead, focus on saving money and living within your means. This will help you to weather any financial storms that may come your way.

In terms of relationships, the Two of Pentacles suggests that you need to find a way to balance your own needs with the needs of your partner. It is important to give and take in a relationship, and you may need to make some compromises in order to maintain a healthy balance. However, if you feel like you are always giving more than you are receiving, it may be time to reassess the situation.


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 2 Of Pentacles has helped you.
