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 8 Of Wands card together in particular.

The The Magician card and 8 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 Magician and 8 Of Wands mean together?

When The Magician and The 8 of Wands are together in a reading, it indicates that focused creative action is needed in order to bring about desired change. This may be a time of quick decisions and fast movement, so it is important to be clear about your goals and priorities. The energy of these cards suggests that things are happening quickly and there is a need for decisive action. This is a time to trust your intuition and take inspired action. The combined energies of these cards can help you to manifest your visions into reality.

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 Magician and 8 Of Wands mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Magician and 8 Of Wands the answer to your query is “YES”.

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?

The Magician Tarot card is all about focused creativity and taking inspired action to turn your visions into reality. When it comes to health, The Magician suggests that you focus on manifesting your ideal health outcome and taking steps to make it happen. This could involve setting realistic goals and putting a plan into action to achieve them. It’s also important to stay positive and believe in yourself and your ability to create the health you desire. When it comes to finances, The Magician reminds you that you have the power to create abundance in your life. This could involve using your creative talents to manifest more money, or it could simply mean making smart financial choices and being proactive about your finances. When it comes to relationships, The Magician suggests that you focus on creating the kind of relationships you want in your life. This could involve setting healthy boundaries, communicating your needs, and taking action to build the kinds of relationships you desire.

What does 8 Of Wands mean?


The 8 of Wands is a favorable card for health matters. It suggests that any health concerns you have will soon be resolved. Things will move quickly and change for the better. This is a good time to start or resume a fitness program. You will have the energy and motivation to stick with it.


The 8 of Wands is a good omen for finances. It suggests that money matters will soon take a turn for the better. You may receive a windfall, or unexpected financial help. This is also a good time to start or grow a business. Things will move quickly and you will find success.


The 8 of Wands is a good omen for relationships. It suggests that any current problems will soon be resolved. Things will move quickly and change for the better. This is a good time to start a new relationship, or to renew your commitment to an existing one.


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 8 Of Wands has helped you.
