Interesting tarot pairs

Hi peeps

I recently added a new section to my journal not surprisingly called 'interesting pairs', as many cards reinforce another either positively or negatively.

Stating straight off that we all are unlikely to agree on the exact same meanings for each card or pair so this is obviously quite basic, I'd like to start the ball rolling and hope you all have the time to add your own observations.

7 Swords + Magician - now there is a shady pair that would worry me!

Emperor + Chariot - major control freak

9 Swords + Moon - Are you making mountains out of molehills?

5 Cups + 2 Wands - time to confront, reassess, let go and move on

4 Swords + Star - time out to heal and recuperate and gather your thoughts

4 Cups + Moon - depression

5 Cups + Judgment - absolve yourself, and others, seek closure

10 wands + Devil really made a rod for your own back

8 Wands + Tower - time to don a crash helmet and take cover *LOL*

I look forward to hearing your interesting pairs

Although I've never had it come up in a reading, I've often thought my two favorite cards make a rather interesting pair:
3 of Swords and 9 of Pentacles

The rewards of hard work come with heart ache. Sometimes I wonder if that's the theme of my life.

Talking OK, my few

Chariot + Tower: car crash

Death + Devil: going straight to hell

I wish people who have trouble communicating would just shut up.

The 3 of swords (surgery) and the Empress (motherhood) as the final outcome in a romance spread. It was for a friend who was infertile. The outcome hasn't happened yet, but I still think she's going to have an operation that lets her have a baby.

So far away from reality could also be 6 of cups + moon or 6 of cups + star or 6 of cups + devil

I was also thinking of 6 cups in the context of rememberance:

6 Cups + Devil - An old dependant relationship rears its ugly head

6 Cups + Emperor - thinking of your father maybe

6 Cups + Sun - yay ... wasn't if fun being a kid

6 Cups + Hierophant - old teacher/ being at school


8 Cups + 5 Cups - reassess what you don't need anymore and leave it behind

page of wands + fool - major inmaturity towards change
(same goes for any page + fool combo)

death + 5 of cups - the total end of something but the severe yearning to have it back

Hierophant + Chariot = Popemobile!

Good thread alibee. Darn, I had a couple of real eyebrow raising pairs lately, but can I remember them? ... nooooo.
