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 Strength card together in particular.

The The Magician card and Strength 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 Strength mean together?

The Magician tarot card is all about focused creativity and taking inspired action to turn your vision into reality. If you have a health or relationship goal that you’re determined to achieve, this is the card for you. Channelling your creative energies into positive action will help you to manifest your desires. Strength tarot card reminds us of the importance of self-love, respect and courage. Nurturing these qualities within ourselves enables us to approach our goals from a place of strength and confidence. When it comes to health and relationships, this card reminds us that we are our own best advocates. Learning to love and respect ourselves is the first step towards creating lasting, healthy 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 Strength mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Magician and Strength 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 is all about focus, creativity and action. When it comes to health, The Magician reminds us that we have the power to heal ourselves, both physically and emotionally. We simply need to focus on our goals and take inspired action. When it comes to finances, The Magician suggests that we focus on manifesting our desires. We need to be creative in our approach and take decisive action in order to achieve our goals. And when it comes to relationships, The Magician reminds us that we have the power to create the relationships we desire. We simply need to focus on what we want to create and take inspired action.

What does Strength mean?

The Strength Tarot card suggests that if you have been lacking in self-love, it is time to start rebuilding yourself from the ground up. This can be a difficult task, but it is essential if you want to achieve lasting happiness and success. Learning to love and respect yourself is the first step on the road to recovering from any setbacks you may have experienced in the past. The Strength Tarot card also reminds us that we are all capable of great things if we only dare to dream and strive for them. No matter how difficult life may seem, we always have the potential to turn things around and make our dreams a reality.

When it comes to our health, the Strength Tarot card encourages us to take care of ourselves both physically and emotionally. This means eating healthy foods, getting enough exercise, and making time for relaxation and stress relief. It is also important to be honest with ourselves about our health and to seek professional help when needed. Financially, the Strength Tarot card suggests that we focus on building our savings and creating financial stability. This may require making some sacrifices in the short-term, but it will pay off in the long run. In relationships, the Strength Tarot card urges us to be honest and open with our partners. Communication is essential in any relationship, and it is important to remember that we are each responsible for our own happiness.


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 Strength has helped you.
