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 King of Pentacles card suggests that when it comes to your relationship or love life, there can be too much of a good thing, particularly if you fall into the trap of showing off. Like an all-you-can-eat buffet, where what you want is quantity, the situation changes or disappears once the want has been sated. But in matters of the heart, do what you believe, which, like a banquet, is all about quality. Tend to what you need, consider those who rely on you for support and practice gratitude. You may find that you are surrounded by a cornucopia of abundance and in a position to share this bounty with others. The more you give, the less you will suffer want in the first place. Get back to basics and make a clean sweep of those things that are cluttering up your love life or distracting you from true commitment and sensual pleasure.

The Lovers card suggests that you have the courage to get involved, take a risk, consider a proposal or fall in love again. If you don't put yourself out there, you won't find what you seek. Make a choice to love or forgive. Then consider letting an outside party hook you up with a new prospect or rendezvous. Be aware, however, that giving into passion, temptation or lust could have consequences. Don't bite off more than you can chew.

The Justice card suggests that if you stick to your principles, you can make discriminating, objective choices that can help you balance your expectations for a relationship with the reality of your obligations. Be honest in your own estimation of your position so that you can accept the outcome, pay the price or reevaluate your expectations or convictions.

The Temperance card reversed suggests that extreme emotions could flare up as patience is pushed to the limit, which means built-up frustrations finally seek their release. Once it is all out there, you can regain composure or self-control and work toward a long-term solution or compromise. As long as you don't expect a quick fix, you can recover a balance between the stresses of daily life, personal gratification and romantic desires or relationship goals that may have been taking a back seat to emotional or sexual dysfunctions. Take it one day at a time.

The Eight of Swords card reversed suggests that you may feel at your wit's end. You sense that you are unable to cope with the reality of your love life, or are bound by circumstance, duty or criticism, but you are too fearful or in the dark regarding your options to confront the situation. Normally, you might be guarded or give thought to consequences, but enough may be enough. You might finally be ready to remove the blinders, forgive or accept yourself, and assert your independence. The 'some day' you might be waiting for might be today. It may be the right time for a moment of revelation, discovery or surprise, when that which has been hidden or unknown is revealed. Your self-esteem and confidence could rise as a result. Be particular and uphold your newly discovered standards.

The Nine of Swords card reversed suggests that there may be a couple of ways to go with this. The first and most optimistic stance to take is that you have already experienced the moment of realization. Now you can let go or move forward, and you may be quite ready to accept the inevitable change that must come on its heels. You are putting things into perspective and not crying over spilt milk, and are confident in your assertion of no more tears and self-pity. Conversely, you may be using this moment of truth as a means of denying or ignoring the warning signs, or are overly rational to keep from losing it. If you don't want a recurrence of the pain or sorrow, take steps to move to the next level of actually letting go. It's time to accept, forgive and then raise your own standards. Then move on and mean it.

The Temperance card suggests that the timing may be right for sharing your feelings, getting together, creating something new or pouring your heart out, but don't expect a quick fix. This could be the beginning of a creative process of cooperation, diversity, sexual compatibility or testing of the romantic waters, so be prepared to go with the flow or to set new relationship goals that can work for the long term. Patience, trust, compromise and self-control can bring moderate, consistent and stable results as long as you are not afraid to get your feet wet.

The Three of Swords card suggests that dwelling on past pain, heartbreak or loss leaves you vulnerable to further attack or reopens old wounds. It can ultimately consume you, particularly if it is your own heart that has betrayed you. Thoughts of getting even will make things worse. Taking each betrayal or loss too personally becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy so that when you do finally let down your guard and trust again, you find yourself embroiled in the same emotional drama you vowed to avoid. Being on the defensive or carrying a chip on your shoulder practically ensures tension or wounded pride and your self-esteem may suffer as a result. Certain loss is irrevocable. The ensuing crisis can be a turning point for your relationship or love life, but only if you are willing to let go and take a chance.

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.
