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 King Of Cups card together in particular.
The The High Priestess card and King 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 King Of Cups mean together?
The High Priestess tarot card and The King Of Cups tarot card together mean that you should trust your intuition and listen to your gut instinct. The King Of Cups is a supportive leader who is tolerant and empathetic, so he will be a good sounding board for you when it comes to making decisions. However, at the end of the day, you need to trust your own instincts and go with what feels right for you.
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 King Of Cups 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 King Of Cups 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 is all about secrets and mysteries. She encourages us to trust our intuition and to keep our minds open to new possibilities. Her presence in a reading can be a sign that there is hidden knowledge or information that needs to be uncovered. She can also represent a need for introspection and reflection.
In terms of health, The High Priestess suggests that there may be some underlying issues that need to be addressed. It is important to trust your gut instincts and to be open to exploring new health options. The High Priestess can also represent a need for balance and harmony in your life.
In terms of finances, The High Priestess suggests that you may need to take a closer look at your finances and make sure that you are making sound decisions. There may be some hidden costs or expenses that you are not aware of. The High Priestess also suggests that you trust your intuition when it comes to financial decisions.
In terms of relationships, The High Priestess suggests that you may need to spend some time introspecting and understanding your own needs and wants. She can also represent a need for balance and harmony in your relationships. It is important to trust your intuition when it comes to relationships and to be open to exploring new possibilities.
What does King Of Cups mean?
The King of Cups suggests that things are going well in terms of health, finances and relationships. There is a strong supportive leader in place, who is tolerant and empathetic. This means that people are able to openly communicate their needs and feelings, and there is a mutual respect for one another. This supportive leader is likely to be helpful in times of difficulty, offering guidance and reassurance. In terms of health, The King of Cups suggests that people are feeling positive and confident. There is a good balance between mind and body, and people are likely to be taking care of themselves both physically and emotionally. This is a time to enjoy good health and to appreciate all that life has to offer. In terms of finances, The King of Cups suggests that things are stable and manageable. There is enough money coming in to cover all of the basics, and there is some room for discretionary spending. This is a good time to save money and to make plans for the future. In terms of relationships, The King of Cups suggests that things are harmonious and fulfilling. There is a strong emotional bond between people, and a shared understanding of one another. This is a time to enjoy companionship and to feel supported by those closest to you.
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 King Of Cups has helped you.
