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 Judgment card together in particular.
The The Magician card and Judgment 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 Judgment mean together?
The Magician tarot card and The Judgment tarot card means a lot to me. They help me focus on my goals and inspire me to take action. They also help me make decisions and find clarity in my life. These cards have helped me improve my health and relationships.
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 Judgment mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Magician and Judgment 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 can mean different things for different areas of life. In terms of health, The Magician suggests that you have the power to heal yourself, both physically and emotionally. You are reminded to take care of your body and mind, and to trust your intuition when it comes to your health. The Magician also suggests that you be proactive in your health, and to not wait for things to happen to you. In terms of finances, The Magician suggests that you are in control of your own finances, and that you have the power to manifest your financial goals. You are reminded to be responsible with your money, and to use your resources wisely. The Magician also suggests that you take inspired action when it comes to your finances, and to not let fear or doubt hold you back. In terms of relationships, The Magician suggests that you are in control of your own relationships, and that you have the power to create the relationships that you want. You are reminded to be honest with yourself and others, and to communicate openly and honestly. The Magician also suggests that you take inspired action when it comes to your relationships, and to not let fear or doubt hold you back.
What does Judgment mean?
The Judgment Tarot card means clarity about your life’s purpose. It is a wake-up call to live your life to the fullest and to make the most of every opportunity. This card also suggests that it is time to make a final decision about something important in your life. The Judgment Tarot card can represent a new beginning or a new chapter in your life. If you have been feeling lost or uncertain about your life, this card can bring you clarity and a sense of direction.
In terms of health, The Judgment Tarot card suggests that you take a good look at your lifestyle and make changes to improve your health. This could mean eating a healthier diet, getting more exercise, or making time for relaxation and stress-relief. If you have been putting off making these changes, now is the time to do it. The Judgment Tarot card can also represent a major health decision that you need to make. This could be something like starting a new treatment plan, undergoing surgery, or making a major lifestyle change. Whatever the case may be, you will need to make a clear and confident decision about your health.
When it comes to finances, The Judgment Tarot card suggests that you take a close look at your finances and make some changes. This could mean getting rid of debt, saving more money, or investing in your future. If you have been putting off making these changes, now is the time to do it. The Judgment Tarot card can also represent a major financial decision that you need to make. This could be something like starting a new business, investing in a property, or making a major purchase. Whatever the case may be, you will need to make a clear and confident decision about your finances.
In terms of relationships, The Judgment Tarot card suggests that you take a good look at your relationships and make some changes. This could mean communicating more openly, setting boundaries, or making time for quality time together. If you have been putting off making these changes, now is the time to do it. The Judgment Tarot card can also represent a major relationship decision that you need to make. This could be something like getting married, having a child, or ending a relationship. Whatever the case may be, you will need to make a clear and confident decision about your relationships.
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 Judgment has helped you.
