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.

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 Tower and 2 Of Wands mean “No”. If you are asking a direct question, then be under no illusions, the answer is a negative one. If you draw The Tower and 2 Of Wands the answer to your question is “NO”.
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 Tower mean?
Health: The Tower Tarot card is associated with serious health concerns. It symbolizes the sudden onset of a serious illness, such as cancer or a heart attack, or a traumatic injury caused by an accident or violence. It can also mean that a person’s health is deteriorating, or that a health crisis is imminent. Whatever the cause, the Tower Tarot card implies that the situation is beyond the person’s control, and they may need to seek professional medical help immediately.
Finances: The Tower Tarot card can represent a sudden financial crisis. It can mean an unexpected bankruptcy or loss of a job, as well as sudden expenses such as medical bills, legal fees, or the cost of repairing or replacing a major item. Whatever the situation, the Tower Tarot card implies that the person’s finances are in disarray, and they need to take drastic action to avoid further financial ruin.
Relationships: The Tower Tarot card often suggests that a relationship is in deep trouble. It can mean a major break-up, sudden betrayal, or an irreparable rift between two people. Wherever the root of the problem, the Tower Tarot card implies that the person is facing a major upheaval in their relationship, and it may be better to let it go and move on to a better situation.
What does 2 Of Wands mean?
When it comes to health, the Two of Wands Tarot card suggests that you take a break from any health-related stressors for the time being. You are likely feeling worn down due to the long hours and energy spent striving for success and good health. Take some time to relax and restore your mind and body. To build up the strength and resilience you need to continue to focus on your health, take the time to find ways to restore balance. Look for ways to incorporate healthy lifestyle habits, such as proper nutrition, exercise, and self-care.
When it comes to finances, the Two of Wands Tarot card suggests that you take a step back and assess your financial situation before making any big decisions. The card indicates that your financial situation is up in the air, and you may be having difficulty determining what steps to take next. Take a moment to understand the situation, to think through the possibilities, and to consider the potential outcomes. Consider your options, think through the potential risks, and make sure that you are making a wise decision.
Finally, the Two of Wands Tarot card suggests that it is an uncertain time in relationships. You may be feeling unsure of where your relationships stand and you may be struggling to make a decision about next steps. Take your time to really assess the situation and to consider the situation from all angles. If a difficult conversation needs to happen, make sure that you are prepared to handle it in a constructive and honest way. Don’t rush into anything and try to create a safe space in which all parties can be honest and open.
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 Tower and 2 Of Wands has helped you.
