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 Magician card and 7 Of Swords card together in particular.

The The Magician card and 7 Of Swords have unique qualities and will interact with each other in different ways depending on what kind of reading you are doing.

What does The Magician and 7 Of Swords mean together?

The combination of The Magician and The 7 of Swords suggests that you may be feeling a little bit betrayed or cheated recently. It’s possible that someone has stolen from you, or lied to you, and this has left you feeling upset and frustrated. However, The Magician is also a card of focused creativity and inspired action. This suggests that although you may have been dealt a difficult hand recently, you have the power to turn your situation around. You can use your creative talents to manifest your desires and achieve your goals. You may need to take some risks, but if you trust your intuition and follow your heart, you will be successful.

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 Magician and 7 Of Swords 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 Magician mean?

For health, The Magician Tarot card indicates focused creatvity and taking inspired action in order to manifest good health. This may involve Eating healthy foods and exercising regularly to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

For finances, The Magician Tarot card suggests using your creative skills to manifest abundance. This may include using your talents to create something new and innovative that can generate income.

For relationships, The Magician Tarot card encourages open communication and creative self-expression. This means being honest and authentic with your partner and being open to trying new things together.

What does 7 Of Swords mean?

The 7 Of Swords Tarot card can be a difficult card to interpret, as it can have a lot of different meanings. In general, however, the card signifies theft, betrayal, dishonesty and running away.

When it comes to health, The 7 Of Swords suggests that someone may be facing a difficult health challenge. They may be feeling betrayed by their body or by the medical system, and may be tempted to give up or run away from the situation. However, this card also encourages us to be resourceful and to find creative solutions to our problems.

In terms of finances, The 7 Of Swords suggests that we may be facing some challenges in this area. We may be tempted to take shortcuts or to engage in dishonest practices in order to make some quick money. However, this card reminds us that ultimately these practices will not lead to lasting success or security.

Finally, in relationships, The 7 Of Swords suggests that we may be facing some challenges. There may be some deception or betrayal involved, and we may be tempted to walk away from the situation. However, this card reminds us that even in the most difficult of times, it is important to communicate openly and honestly with our partner.


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 Magician and 7 Of Swords has helped you.
