The Five of Swords card reversed suggests that at this time, it may be best to leave well enough alone or to take the moral high ground, as issues or memories of disrespect, abuse, cheating or trickery may be lying right below the surface. Opening this can of worms may bring everyone down. Keep your information or knowledge of a hidden truth to yourself, and just privately enjoy any personal victory without resorting to public embarrassment. All the parties involved have had an equal hand in bringing about the current circumstances, so any attempts to 'win' will be ultimately fruitless. Let it go -- it isn't worth it.

The Nine of Wands card reversed suggests that the situation might not seem worthy of sacrifice, or there could be little romantic incentive for you to hold your ground. If you do decide to put in the effort, your last stand could end up being anticlimactic or discouraging. You might feel alone if moral support is not forthcoming or disintegrates.

The Ten of Chalices card suggests that you should celebrate the completion of a journey, transformation or commitment. It's time to back up the ones you love while giving them roots and wings. You can expect the collective sensation of having finally made it as one big happy family. Perhaps the most important lesson to be gleaned from this sense of fulfillment is to simply enjoy being in the moment. Honor and recognize your inner child through spontaneous and passionate expressions. You know that home, happiness and family are where the heart is. This sense of pride and joy may come from a focus on common values, a romantic desire sated or a dream achieved. Either way, you have an opportunity to share the love, express gratitude, expand your relationship and appreciate the stormy road that might have led to this renewal and wholeness.

The Queen of Swords card suggests that you may be influenced by the skill of this Queen to advocate for reasonable means and impartial decisions. Use her strength to open up discussions and persevere in the face of conflict while keeping emotions in check. This situation may serve to complete the connection between wisdom and experience. Consider delegating authority to her or deferring to her impartial opinions -- she can go head-to-head in a battle of wits, making her a natural choice for compassionate mediation or legal assistance. Stick to the facts, know your own mind, follow the rules and keep your distance, but be willing to listen and let your perceptions grow out of the evidence rather than from prejudice or spite. You might be able to better articulate your relationship concerns or demands without getting sidetracked by distractions, gossip or rhetoric.

The Five of Wands card suggests that rivalry, establishing your place, defending your honor and fighting for attention is possible. You and a rival may be on the same level playing field with generally the same experience, ambition, or romantic goal, but ultimately there may be only one person or position at stake. Only one of you will be able to gain the advantage. Right now, however, it is all about the game or the challenge as well as setting and testing boundaries.

The King of Swords card reversed suggests that the question may be, 'Do you want to be right -- and alone?' Consider softening your approach. Reconsidering a criticism or hard-line stance on a matter could improve your relationship or love life. In matters of love, reason, statistics or facts may not add up to happiness and they could mean a cold heart, particularly if you are holding out for this King's conditional approval. In an ironic twist, it could be your respectful, compassionate refusal to defer or obey that breaks him or melts his heart or gets him to make an exception to the rule. Avoid the temptation to retaliate in kind or to take preemptive measures that could be premature. Know that love and truth will find a way, with or without him.

The Four of Chalices card suggests that a gift of love and support may be offered to you by a compassionate, committed or reliable source willing to go out on a limb just when you feel like no one cares. If you are too wrapped up in your perceived problems, you might not recognize the attempt at outreach and miss the opportunity that could lead to romantic renewal. Don't focus too much on what you don't have, or you could become resentful or condescending of the happiness and passion of others.

The Nine of Chalices card suggests that to the world you've got it going on. You may be in an enviable position of seeming to have the perfect domestic life. Beware, however, of a tendency to flaunt your romantic success or pride over others or your partner -- you don't want that to be the only way you get to feel validated, acknowledged, powerful and important. Lording it over others could make an opportunity to experience true satisfaction into little more than a photo op. Also, watch out for a tendency to grab the spotlight or indulge in compulsive behavior. These enticements could be substitutes for genuine sensual pleasures and intimacy or be a cover for hidden fears. Recognize what is really going on around you.

The Emperor card suggests that you have the strength of your convictions. People know you can be counted on to perform or to be reasonable when passions get hot, but you may have issues with accepting the independence of your love interest, particularly when it comes to being the provider or protector. Don't try to force the issue -- be dependable and you can earn respect by being a positive role model.

The Nine of Chalices card reversed suggests that it might be time to come off the sidelines or out of the comfort zone. Deal with loss, resentment, a break down in communication or some other issue that might be affecting intimacy, self-acceptance, or gratification in your love life. This could be a dramatic turning point and might even bring a certain amount of relief. Ultimately, with little left to lose, this upset could create an opening for you to let go of old, constraining circumstances and surround yourself with what really matters. Afterward, you can conquer the mess or clean up your act while honoring your experience. You can then put it behind you once and for all and be free to be receptive to the joy, pleasures and love you deserve.
