The Eight of Pentacles card reversed suggests that sex sells, but the quality, not the quantity, of your sensual self should be your consistent measure for improving earthly pleasures. Don't let it be just a way to keep score or merely something to cross off the to-do list -- otherwise, you might become bored with the same old same old. Try not to be absorbed by the minutiae of every detail. Find something in which the process itself gives you pleasure, rather than only in its tangible end result. Having your eye on the prize can keep you focused, but a preoccupation with perfectionism might adversely affect the support and security of your domestic situation, or slow the progress in what could otherwise become a labor of love.

The Four of Wands card reversed suggests that you may be facing a turning point in your romantic situation, or that you have achieved your romantic goals in an unexpected or private way. Like the Peggy Lee song, you may now be asking, 'Is that all there is?' While this sentiment is normal, it is wise not to gloss over it. It is a good time to reflect on fundamentally divergent or opposing ideas for your goals as a couple.

The Ten of Swords card suggests that everything's over but the tears. Whether it's tears of sorrow or joy is a matter for you to decide. When the last straw falls, you might finally reconcile a painful past that could exist more in your head than in reality. Regardless of where the fear lies, its effect on your love life is still valid and powerful. The impact of letting memories keep you down may be severe, especially if you roll over and play dead. All good and bad things must come to an end. This might be the time for you to learn to let go of old wounds, heartbreak and injustices that could be hurting or controlling your relationships. The ensuing release, relief or liberation that arrives after this key realization can leave you free to begin again and undertake a new chapter in your relationship or love life.

The Queen of Wands card suggests that you should channel the magnetic power, self-control and expertise of this Queen to achieve a sense of independence, pleasure and security.

Use this superior position, innovative strength, wisdom and charisma of this fascinating Queen to stake your claim and seal the deal. Creative expressions may be approved.

The Seven of Chalices card reversed suggests that setting your romantic sights too low or too high might be an attempt to deny signs of internal dissatisfaction and could put a damper on romance and intimacy. These obstacles or losses, however, could actually help you to reconcile your heart's desire by putting true love within reach or by identifying what has authentic value and appeal on a soul-deep level. After all, it might be a faulty sense of self-esteem that stands between settling and having the confidence to go for what you secretly desire. Being able to finally identify what it is you really need can expand your capacity to love. You could begin to envision your true potential or rediscover your authentic, creative and playful self, which could then enable you to better connect with what you deserve.

The World card suggests that you may have come a long way, baby, in reaching your romantic goals or letting go of the past. Now you could receive further gifts in your love life. Perhaps some family planning or a change in your relationship that can expand your horizons is in the works. Get ready for creative plans for the future. This may be the real deal. You could finally feel complete -- but it's only the beginning.

The Two of Pentacles card reversed suggests that it might be tempting to give up in the face of conflict or romantic stagnation, especially if it seems like you're facing a 'catch-22' or a 'lesser of two evils' decision. When it comes to your partner, you may not be on the same wavelength regarding this matter. There is a chance that one of you may be overcompensating for what may be perceived as a deficiency in material or financial considerations or in satisfying a hunger for physical indulgences or intimacy. Don't think you have to try to keep up with others to keep from looking foolish, or that if you keep smiling and going along, it will work out. While it may be a hassle or a struggle, making an effort to dance the fine line between practical realities and sensual pleasures can put you in position to resolve this issue.

The Sun card reversed suggests that you might feel underappreciated or isolated. There may also be confidence or support issues that keep you from fully committing to or enjoying a healthy, vital love life. Keeping up appearances when the fire is almost gone (or for the sake of others) could be more about pride, codependency or ego. You deserve to shine, feel attractive and express your passion, even if it means moving on or getting away.

The Three of Chalices card suggests that you've worked hard to attain some level of success in your pursuit of happiness and love, but there will always be more to achieve. Take some time off to acknowledge your current success. Give yourself a pat on the back, spend time with your friends, commune over drinks or shake your groove thing without fear of being judged. Celebrate who and where you are right now without becoming bogged down by the end result of your search for love. Find reason to be joyful and grateful along the way. Revel in the pleasure and companionship of your peers, and indulge in the support of group empowerment without trying to make a love connection. You might find that you not only light up the room, but exude beauty, courage and confidence that make you more attractive and receptive to romance.
