List of Yes / No Tarot Card Meanings for Love & Romance Questions

yes no tarot card meanings for love and relationships

In a post about Yes / No Love Tarot Techniques I posted not long ago, I mentioned the One Card Draw as a possibility. Some of you prefer a set list for Love Tarot meanings to work from, rather than delving into connecting with each card, so I obliged and put one together. Do feel free to print it out!

Clicking on the individual links will give you more in-depth meanings for love and relationship readings.

Personally, when reading for myself, I don’t use Court Cards to answer yes-no questions. If I turn one over when asking a yes/no type question, I take it as a sign that I’m not meant to ask at this point in time. You can work your way around this by separating the Courtiers from the rest of the deck or by turning the next card over until you get a Major or Minor Arcana card that will answer your question.

However, you will get an extra dimension to this One Card reading by keeping the Courtiers in. If one shows up, you could see it as a mirror of an aspect of yourself that you need to integrate or strengthen before the cards will answer your question.


List of Yes-No Tarot Card meanings for Love & Relationship Tarot Readings:


The Fool – Yes! New beginnings ahead but don’t ask for a commitment just yet.
The Magician – Yes. Especially, if the question was ‘Will I hear from him/her?’
The High Priestess – No. Some things are hidden from view at this point in time.
The Empress – Yes. Now is the time for sweet loving.
The Emperor – Yes, but it may be all on his terms… is this really what you want?
The Hierophant – Yes, wedding bells will chime.
The Lovers – Maybe. A possible soul mate connection. Choices need to be made. A need for clear communication.
The Chariot – No. The other person is too focused on their own goals at this point in time.
Strength – Yes. Especially if all you’re after is fun and frolics.
The Hermit – No. This is a time of isolation from others. Use this time wisely to learn from past mistakes.
The Wheel – Maybe. It’s all down to timing. Do you feel lucky? If so, go for it!
Justice – Maybe. Legal issues could prevent you from being together.
The Hanged Man – Yes, but only if the situation can be transformed by gaining a new perspective.
Death – No
Temperance – Yes, but healing may be needed first.
The Devil – No. Stay away as there is a risk of codependency. Cord cutting may be indicated.
The Tower – No. Acts of God are keeping you apart.
The Star – Yes. Your wildest dreams are about to come true!
The Moon – Maybe. Caution is advised. Deception or self-delusion could be indicated.
The Sun – Yes!
Judgment – Maybe, but nothing will remain the same and you have to be prepared to put the past firmly where it belongs… in the past!
The World – Yes. Usually indicates two soul mate lovers who are finally allowed to just enjoy each other – All the lessons are done and dusted, and the karma is cleared.


Ace of Wands – Yes. For a hook-up. Says nothing about longer term.
Ace of Cups – Definitely… complete with rose-tinted glasses!
Ace of Swords – Yes. For hearing from someone. Says nothing about the future of the relationship.
Ace of Pentacles – Yes to sensual pleasures and exchange of gifts. Could be good longer term too but not as strong as the Ace of Cups.


Two of Wands – Maybe. Look closely at what it is that irritates you about the other person. They are acting as a mirror.
Two of Cups – Yes. This love is about to be reciprocated.
Two of Swords – Maybe, probably a platonic outcome
Two of Pentacles – Maybe. Many factors are influencing this situation and that is why it’s still in the balance.


Three of Wands – Yes
Three of Cups – Yes
Three of Swords – No
Three of Pentacles – Yes

Bear in mind with all 3’s that a third party could be involved!


Four of Wands – Yes. It’s likely that you will live together.
Four of Cups – No
Four of Swords – Maybe, probably a platonic outcome
Four of Pentacles – No


Five of Wands – No
Five of Cups – No, recent past hurt makes new love impossible
Five of Swords – No. Vitriol, aggression, envy and hatred have the upper hand
Five of Pentacles – No. Money troubles could be a factor


Six of Wands – Yes
Six of Cups – Yes. Soul mate lover alert!
Six of Swords – Yes. A good sign that you’re over the worst of it if you’ve been going through a rough patch.
Six of Pentacles – Maybe. Make sure that there is equality in giving and taking!


7 of Wands – No. Too many rivals and big egos at play!
7 of Cups – No. Confusion is a factor
7 of Swords – No. Actually, this is the ‘Hell no, run the other way!!’ card
7 of Pentacles – Maybe, but it may take longer than you are prepared to wait. Patience is required.


8 of Wands – Yes… Unexpectedly!
8 of Cups – No
8 of Swords – No
8 of Pentacles – No


9 of Wands – No. Mistrust is an issue.
9 of Cups – Yes! Your desires are about to manifest.
9 of Swords – No. Fear is creating distance between you.
9 of Pentacles – No, but happiness and contentment are achieved from within.


10 of Wands – No
10 of Cups – Yes, and it will last. The emotional compatibility is excellent.
10 of Swords – No, but at least the suffering will soon be over and you can look to the future.
10 of Pentacles – Yes, and your grandchildren will reminisce about how happy you two were.

  1. Hi Lisa
    This is a great post as usual. It worked for me. I asked if he really loves me and I got Six of Swords and we have actually been on rough terms in last 3-4 weeks. Then I asked if there was a chance for a long-term together and I got Page of Wands, and Hierophant. I agree that he has lots of Aries in him and my Page qualities are very important & attractive to him (he’s Sun,Moon,Venus,Mercury in Aries). Great help really.

    However I shared the link on a forum and a fellow member asked what if the card is reversed? will this mean a NO or just the yes/No of that card is weakened. I don’t use reversals but I guess other people do.

    Your thoughts on this are awaited. Thank you yet again. Lots of Blessings

  2. This works perfectly! I pulled out a reversed Knight of cups in asking if he loves me? Then if he loved me and got the Moon. I took the courts out and as I was shuffling before I even finished asking mentally the question, this card turned over. Temperance.

  3. Dear Lisa, i tried to use the Yes / No, my question was : ” did he miss me …. “- so …. after a while, i got Heirophant as the answer, is that enough as the very answer? or it doesn’t matter if its reversed or up right? Thanks for sharing & look forward for your advice ~ Thankyou :-)

  4. Hi Lisa. I love your website. It’s very informative :) however, I am a newbie and I was wondering if you can shed some light on a confusion I have. If I ask a question like – is the relationship over between us? – then pick the DEATH card. Do I read it as no or yes? Similarly if I ask – is he avoiding me – and pull 7 SWORDS – is it a no or yes? Thx so much ;)

    • Death for if it is over and you only pull one card to answer would be ‘no’ – HOWEVER, I don’t suggest pulling just one card for that. You did in fact pull another… yes? The 7 of Swords. Again, I believe you are looking for more indepth answers than you are getting from a one card draw. That would be a no. Your intuition is not agreeing. Why not try a full spread or get a professional Tarot reading instead?

  5. Hi Lisa. Thanks so much for your reply. I have been really down and confused about a relationship and trying to seek answers for a sense of peace. I think right now, It’s best I let things go. Before hurting myself and those around me. For regardless of Wat the cards say…I dun think I am in an emotional state to deal with the situation. Thx again for your kind words Lisa. Much blessings to you.

  6. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an very long comment but
    after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.

    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just
    wanted to say excellent blog!

  7. Hi everyone, I did a reading and wanted to make sure if I’m right about this situation.

    I did the The situation, The challenge, Advice, Likely outcome spread. The question I asked is “Will my ex (name) return or not”?? These are the cards that I received. I think it’s a yes but I’m not sure.

    The situation: Ace of Swords
    The Challenge: Five of Cups
    Advice: Four of Pentacles
    Likely Outcome: Ten of Pentacles

    Also a card was drawn last for advice if I want to make things work with (name). I received the Hierophant.

    I’m not understanding if that is a yes or no answer. Can someone please help me to confirm it?

    I am from India and I had a online relationship with a girl from US, she wanted me to come to US so that we can start a family. She is divorced and has a daughter, I am never married and I love her to the core, but since the September of 2014 she is changed and I came to understand through tarot reading that she has met her old college friend and is involved with him.
    In spite of numerous messages she seems to ignore me. But I have decided to travel to US and prove my love to her.
    In order to know if she will be my future life partner I took this spread.
    I will be thankful if you can give me a good advice on the above cards.
    Thanking you.

  9. Oh dear. Did a reading on how a guy I’ve been struggling against feels about me, now that we’ve had our most serious fight then cooled down from it. This is one of those red hot, always fighting, passionate ones. He’s Italian, so am I, we can’t live with each other, can’t live without each other. This was the fight to end all fights and all relationships!

    It’s been 3 weeks of no contact, so I asked a yes/no question (“Is he in love with me?”) and used The Celtic Cross. The layout answered: the Eight of Wands crossed by the Nine of Cups. Foundation was the Wheel, what could be next was The Emperor. Leaving was the Three of Coins. Near future, Two of Cups. Card 7, “him”, Page of Coins. Card 8, his environment and possibly me, The Empress. Hopes and fears, Ten of Swords. Outcome: Hierophant.

    My interp of this is he has realized I’m “the one” – a thing he has been resisting since we first met – and wants to focus more on love than what he wanted to focus on previously: a creative project brought us together and he wanted me to be Platonic Petunia because of it. Looks to me he’s finally caught up with my opinion creativity can come later and he and I are destined so “stop fighting it, dingbat!” I don’t want to imagine things, but: The Empress AND The Emperor, same reading? Wheel of Fortune (fate and destiny) as the foundation? Two of Cups, near future? Ending with The Hierophant???

    I guess I should I invite you guys to the wedding… :/

    • No, not necessarily. The CC is not a great spread to use for this type of reading… also, I would advice against doing this type of reading when you are emotionally attached to the outcome as well as reading on the same situation more than once. This really is a classic case when getting a professional reading would be a GREAT idea.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, feedback and questions. Please note that, while I'm happy to answer questions about individual cards, I don't interpret spreads. I get several requests every day about interpreting DIY readings based on my spreads. Even if I had the time, I don’t think it would be a wise investment of my time to ‘read on readings’ – A reading is done in synergy between the cards, the question and the reader… in the MOMENT.
