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 The Chariot card together in particular.

The The Magician card and The Chariot 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 The Chariot mean together?

The Magician is about focused creativity and taking inspired action to manifest your vision into reality. The Chariot is about movement and change, going on a journey or starting a new project. Both of these cards indicate that it’s time to take some decisive action in your life in order to make some positive changes.

In terms of health, The Magician suggests that you focus on your goals and taking action to achieve them, while The Chariot suggests that you get moving and make some changes to your routine. Perhaps it’s time to start a new exercise regime or make some changes to your diet. Whatever it is, now is the time to take some action.

In terms of your relationship, The Magician suggests that you focus on communicating your needs and desires to your partner, and working together to make your relationship even stronger. The Chariot suggests that you need to get moving and take some action in your relationship. Perhaps it’s time to take a trip together or start a new project together. Whatever it is, now is the time to take some action.

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 The Chariot mean “Yes” when being asked a question. There is no doubt here, if you draw The Magician and The Chariot 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 health, The Magician Tarot card encourages focused creative action in order to manifest one’s visions into reality. This can be helpful in terms of working towards specific health goals, whether that means following a certain exercise or diet plan in order to improve one’s overall health, or using creative visualization techniques to help manifest healing energy. In terms of finances, The Magician Tarot card suggests that taking inspired action in order to achieve financial goals is important. This may mean taking steps to manifest abundance through positive thinking and affirmations, or taking concrete action steps such as saving money or investing in assets. When it comes to relationships, The Magician Tarot card stresses the importance of being proactive and taking inspired action in order to create and maintain healthy, loving relationships. This can involve communicating openly and honestly with partners, setting realistic boundaries, and making an effort to connect on a deeper level.

What does The Chariot mean?

The Chariot Tarot card indicates action and change, a journey, or a new vehicle. This means that if you are considering making a change in your health, finances, or relationships, now is the time to do so. The Chariot is a powerful card, and indicates that you have the strength and determination to make significant changes in your life. If you are facing a difficult situation, The Chariot suggests that you will be able to overcome it through perseverance and determination. You may need to put up a fight, but ultimately you will come out victorious. The Chariot also suggests that now is a good time to take a risk. If you have been considering making a major change, such as starting a new business or moving to a new city, The Chariot indicates that this is the time to do it. The Chariot is a positive card, and suggests that whatever changes you make in your life will ultimately be for the best.


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 The Chariot has helped you.
