The Queen of Swords card reversed suggests that putting up a wall may have served its purpose, but it might be time to let go of the false security that could be interfering in your love life. What was once a defense could now be reinforcing feelings of abandonment, irrational thinking or self-deception. It may take more will and courage to try again than to remain the long-suffering martyr. When you find you are tired of being right but alone, you can change your mind and find resolution or healing beginning with an honest acknowledgement of the situation, along with responsible and direct communication. Grieve for your losses and accept that love isn't perfect. An underlying belief that perfection can exist is what creates such disappointed expectations in the first place.

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 Three of Wands card reversed suggests that loss of cooperation, companionship, miscommunication, rejection or disappointment are possible if you are careless about details, are not realistic, lose patience or rely on outsiders to get your romantic message across. It could be that this relationship matter may not be in your best interest if things aren't developing the way that you hoped. You might find yourself happier if you say good-bye or move on rather than waiting around.

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 Strength card suggests that you should try to be flexible and receptive. Listen to your instincts and believe there is light at the end of the tunnel and you will be able to persevere, take action or get over it. Be honest with yourself and open to suggestion. Trust in your own ability to demonstrate patience and hang in there; courage, determination and action -- not words -- can help you more effectively influence and deal with the demands of daily life.

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.

The Ace of Pentacles card reversed suggests that a possible sexual encounter or tempting material offer is little more than a chance to explore a purely physical attraction or craving. When seeking to gratify sensual pleasures, you may not need to look any further than your own backyard. You may just need a bit more support or nurturing, particularly if things like work, health or sexual dysfunction are interfering with making a love connection or enjoying yourself. Consider that avoidance or excuses of pressing romantic issues may be sapping more physical energy from you than if you were simply upfront or open about what is missing in your love life.

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 Nine of Pentacles card suggests that the hard part is over. You've paid your dues and you have nothing to prove. Let the results speak for themselves and don't dirty your hands with idle, trendy or high maintenance indulgences like lovers who don't give back. Take appropriate precautions and nurture the finer things that are in tune with your needs and that faithfully satisfy multiple senses. Craft a flowing comfort zone, retreat, home or romantic paradise from these established simple pleasures or self-renewing efforts. Maintain self-confidence, self-control, independence and the art of being alone. Consistent feeding of your spirit creates a rich and replenished soul.
