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.

The Queen of Pentacles card suggests that you could reap the benefits from this Queen's generous domestic connection, perhaps by learning from her example. You can create the comforts of a career, home and family without being run ragged or seeming smug. Treat each project, plant, pet or job like your baby. Foster its independence or its ability to grow big and strong. Give someone who looks up to you another chance, or turn an error into your unique style by adding your special touch. Choose quality over quantity and love may flourish. You might have the opportunity to nurture some sensual pleasure or acquire a more abundant and fertile environment.

The Four of Wands card suggests that you may be celebrating a commitment, consummation or reunion. The two of you are enjoying success, attention, relief or reward at the most fundamental level of your relationship. This is an experience or moment to be shared together, but you may have to also take it public for the benefit or approval of others. Dancing or a coming-out ritual may mark this rite of passage for you and your soul mate.

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 Fool card reversed suggests that being blinded by love or desire, you have the potential to fall victim to someone who may treat you carelessly or take you for granted. You could be on the brink of an exciting ride, but your love interest may not be there when the roller coaster comes to an end.

The Ace of Pentacles card suggests that the conditions may be rife with possibilities. Whatever you are nurturing is growing and may provide the first fruits of security, comfort or sensual pleasure. All of the five senses are at your disposal and tempt you into staying put and indulging your appetites, particularly as they relate to your love life or relationship. Now may be the right time to enjoy physical intimacy and to appreciate beauty and other sensual pleasures. You can also strengthen your connection and explore your sexuality. Romantic or feel-good physical encounters or even pregnancy are possible. Share tokens or symbols of love and affection. And don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.
