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 King Of Pentacles card together in particular.

The The Magician card and King Of Pentacles 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 King Of Pentacles mean together?

The Magician tarot card suggests that you focus your creative energy in order to turn your visions into reality. The King Of Pentacles tarot card means that you are a practical leader who is wise when it comes to investing your time and resources. Together, these tarot cards suggest that you take inspired action in order to achieve your goals. This may require you to be more disciplined in your approach, but the rewards will be worth it.

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 King Of Pentacles mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Magician and King Of Pentacles 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?

For your health, The Magician Tarot card means that you should focus on staying healthy and keeping your body in top condition. This means making healthy choices in your diet and lifestyle, and getting regular exercise. It also means being proactive about your health, and taking steps to prevent illness before it has a chance to take hold.

For your finances, The Magician Tarot card means that you should focus on bringing your financial goals to fruition. This means being creative and resourceful in your approach to money, and taking inspired action to earn and save more money. It also means being mindful of your spending, and making sure that your money is going towards things that are truly important to you.

For your relationships, The Magician Tarot card means that you should focus on creating and maintaining strong, healthy relationships. This means being open and honest with your communication, and being willing to work through conflicts. It also means being supportive and loving towards your partner, and creating an environment of mutual respect.

What does King Of Pentacles mean?

The King Of Pentacles Tarot card is a very positive card when it comes to health, representing a time of good physical health and vitality. This is a time when you have the energy and stamina to take on whatever comes your way. You are likely to be in a good place emotionally as well, feeling confident and secure in yourself and your relationships.

Financially, the King Of Pentacles Tarot card is a very positive sign, indicating that you are in a strong and stable position. You have the resources to weather any storms that come your way, and you are likely to see your financial situation improve even further in the coming months.

In relationships, the King Of Pentacles Tarot card signifies a time of stability and security. This is a good time to solidify existing relationships or to form new ones. You are likely to be attracted to people who are reliable and dependable, and who share your values.


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 King Of Pentacles has helped you.
