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 Judgment card suggests that consequences or rewards of past acts may make themselves known or be resurrected at this time. Depending on your coping skills, shared history or vision, these results could put you in a position to bestow forgiveness or support, answer a call to lead with compassion, give birth to new hope or impart wisdom born of experience. Conversely, you could be on the other end of need and will have to rely on others for guidance, simplification, counsel or relief. Your strength can turn either circumstance into a fresh start.

The Knave of Chalices card suggests that you should spend a moment thinking about a particularly emotional event that brought waves of enthusiasm, anticipation, uncertainty or love into your life for the first time. Apply a whimsically impulsive attitude to your current love life or relationship so that you can capture some of that youthful innocence. Once you do, true love or playful flirtation can color your optimistic dreams for the future.

The Moon card reversed suggests that disappointment over unrealistic expectations about your love life or relationship might lead to outbursts or impulsive, wild behavior. This may further exacerbate the pressure and anxiety that comes with the effort of maintaining control or self-deception. Things may seem clearer in the morning if you listen to your gut. Plug in to the reality of long-repressed pain or emotions and turn them into power.

The Wheel card reversed suggests that second-guessing, interfering or trying to overcontrol your relationship or romantic game plan could result in feelings of disappointment, resentment, jealousy or feeble justifications for being stuck in a negative cycle or being unlucky in love. Remember that if you allow yourself to settle for less than you deserve, that is exactly what you get.

The Death card reversed suggests that the sun may be going down on a relationship, and you may not be ready for the next step. You might be avoiding issues in order to play it safe or maintain the status quo, but tension about losing control or facing the reality may be mounting. The truth is that it doesn't have to go badly; in fact, you may be surprised at the breakthrough or feeling of liberation that could come once you embrace the coming changes with hope.

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 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 Ace of Swords card suggests that you should stand up for yourself. Stick to the point, make yourself clear and compare your options objectively before answering or committing to take the next logical step. Understand or identify the cause. You get what you want by trusting your own personal convictions and inner voice. A strategy of asserting your independence, directing the questioning or getting right to the point could make you seem impersonal, indifferent or even bossy, especially if communications are related to romance or happen via cell phone or online. Sometimes you have to cut through the bull while protecting your privacy before you can establish trust or let down your guard. This is only reasonable. Keep your wits about you.

The Star card suggests that you shouldn't be afraid to let a little 'diva-tude' shine through. Take an opportunity to embrace some you time. As you contemplate how best to be true to yourself, you may find yourself ready to move past the mere illusion of what was or what could be. The confidence, peace or independence that you exude as a result can brighten romantic prospects or lead to improved intimacy. Your moment is upon you, so grab it while you can.
