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
Things are a bit tricky for this combination, as The Tower and Page Of Swords mean different things. The cards are unsure about your question, or the answer to the question has not yet been decided.
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 symbolizes health issues that are both physical and mental. These health issues can range from a sudden illness to a chronic health condition. It can also refer to a disrupted lifestyle that was previously successful. People may experience a decline in their physical health as a result of an unexpected health issue. Moreover, a person may be more prone to illness or injury due to high stress levels.
Finances: The Tower Tarot card can be a warning of potential financial ruin. It usually indicates that the person is headed for a period of financial upheaval. Unwanted change may include unexpected expenses, loss of employment, or unexpected financial losses. People may need to make difficult decisions about their finances because of the strain that the upheaval brings.
Relationships: The Tower Tarot card also symbolizes unfortunate changes in relationships. It often indicates that a relationship is headed for ruin, or that it may be experiencing disruption and turmoil. The undesirable changes may come from the unexpected end of a relationship, or from a major disagreement or betrayal in an existing partnership. Depending on the situation, the person may need to be prepared for some emotional distress or sorrow during this transition time.
What does Page Of Swords mean?
The Page of Swords Tarot card can represent secrets, vulnerabilities, and hidden truths related to your health. It’s a warning to be aware of any hidden health issues as well as any issues you’re intentionally ignoring. It’s a reminder to be honest and open with your doctor, or to get a second opinion. An open dialogue between you, your body, and your doctor will help you to identify any health issues that might otherwise go unnoticed.
The Page of Swords Tarot card can represent prying eyes when it comes to your finances. It’s a reminder to take extra care to safeguard your personal bank information and keep your finances under wraps. It’s a warning to not be too trusting when it comes to financial matters, and to double-check everything. It’s an invitation to explore clever ways to invest and grow your money, as long as these moves are well researched and thought-out.
The Page of Swords Tarot card can represent gossip and secrets when it comes to relationships. It’s a warning to be aware of what other people might be saying about you and to take extra precautions to protect yourself. It’s a reminder to ensure that all communication is honest and open with your partner. Being transparent is the only way to have real trust and genuine connection. It’s a reminder to take time to reflect and investigate the truth beneath the surface of any conflicts or misunderstandings.
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 Page Of Swords has helped you.
