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 9 Of Wands card together in particular.

The The High Priestess card and 9 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 9 Of Wands mean together?

The High Priestess card is all about secrets and mystery, and the 9 of Wands suggests that there is much still to be revealed. This suggests that trust is key, and you should intuition and your own inner wisdom to guide you. The combination of these two cards suggests that maintaining strong boundaries is important, both in terms of your own health and in your relationships. You may need to be persistent in order to protect yourself and your loved ones, but ultimately this will help you to create a stronger, more stable foundation on which to build your life.

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 9 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 9 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?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the meaning of The High Priestess Tarot card will differ depending on the individual’s situation.

This is a time for reflection and introspection, and it may be helpful to consult with a trusted advisor or counselor who can help you explore your options and make decisions from a place of inner wisdom.

In terms of health, The High Priestess Tarot card can suggest that now is a good time to focus on preventive care and self-care. This may include things like eating a balanced diet, getting regular exercise, and getting enough sleep. It is also important to listen to your body and pay attention to any warning signs or symptoms that may be indicating a need for medical attention.

When it comes to finances, The High Priestess Tarot card advises caution and prudence. This is not a time to take risks or make impulsive decisions. Instead, it is a time to take a step back and reassess your situation. It may be helpful to create a budget and stick to it, as well as to save money for a rainy day.

In relationships, The High Priestess Tarot card suggests that it is important to communicate openly and honestly with your partner. This is a time to focus on intimacy and deepening your connection. It may also be helpful to spend time alone or with friends, pursuing hobbies and interests that bring you joy.

What does 9 Of Wands mean?

In terms of health, The 9 Of Wands suggests that you need to maintain your boundaries and be persistent in order to stay healthy. This means setting limits on how much you let others affect your health and wellbeing, and being diligent in sticking to a healthy lifestyle. It also means being willing to fight for your health, and not giving up when things get tough.

In terms of finances, The 9 Of Wands suggests that you need to be mindful of your spending and be persistent in your efforts to save money. This means setting a budget and sticking to it, being mindful of where your money is going, and being willing to make sacrifices in order to reach your financial goals. It also means being patient in your quest to become financially secure, and not giving up when things are tough.

In terms of relationships, The 9 Of Wands reminds you that healthy relationships require effort and boundaries. This means being clear about what you need and want from a relationship, and being willing to stand up for yourself when necessary. It also means being honest with yourself and your partner, and being persistent in your efforts to build a strong and lasting bond.


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 9 Of Wands has helped you.
