The Three of Swords card reversed suggests that you can overcome this hurt or loss once you get the hint about taking things too personally or too much to heart. The worst may have already passed, but now it is up to you. You can either see things clearly and let go or choose to let the pain consume you. However, you are not alone. There are others who have had similar experiences and are learning to trust or love again. Lean on these people for guidance on confronting and overcoming heartbreak. Learn how to turn hurt into self-empowerment and action by pledging 'never again' to intimidation, jealousy, ignorance or blind trust -- and then move on. Lay low and objectively let go of the emotional drama. Holding onto it only increases tension and puts you on the defensive.

The Two of Chalices card suggests that you should rely on and be receptive to genuine love, empathy and emotional support. Your appreciation, sacrifice and pursuit could be rewarded with a meeting of the minds. Be prepared to seal the deal with a kiss or a toast, or to make a major decision regarding your relationship or love life -- one that could affect your level of commitment or domestic happiness. By meeting each other on common ground as equals or by sharing your feelings and intentions honestly and without fear or restraint, you can come to an understanding, see both sides or initiate a romantic transformation that may be mirrored in your partner's eyes.

The Ace of Wands card reversed suggests that initial attraction and passion may be nothing more than an aimless tease or escape. It's no wonder it seems attractive at first, but the staying power may not be there, no matter how much you try to make it so. While a lack of spontaneity or innovation could make your love life seem obligatory rather than liberating and exciting, that's no reason to jump at a tiny spark that may not have the potential to become a real fire. Enjoy the feeling for what it is without trying to elicit promises that may fall through or be disappointing.

The Tower card reversed suggests that the damage may have already been done. If you are sticking your head in the sand for fear that facing the drama head-on might be ruinous, you might be surprised if the inevitable impact or shock isn't as drastic as you though. The other person might actually be expecting it. If you have built barriers of arrogance or inadequacy, your illusions may be dispelled in a flash. An unexpected moment of comeuppance or surprise could knock you off your pedestal like a bolt out of the blue.

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 Chariot card suggests that you should find the appropriate arena in which to express yourself or take some action. However, don't assume that your partner or love interest knows where you are coming from or you could find yourself frantically spinning your wheels over the same old issues or putting on a show for attention. Plan ahead and hold your ground if you want a proposition to be well received.

The Six of Swords card suggests that the worst might be over, but now what? It may be time to accept the facts -- move out of your comfort zone, seek refuge or guidance from someone in the same boat in order to resolve, reconcile and move on. See your way out of a negative situation, for it may have nothing left to offer you. Rebuilding trust or seeking a better life needs to be done although you may not meet it with much enthusiasm or confidence. Make sure you don't take your previous baggage with you on this emigration. You must dump the heartbreak, resentment, tension, dependency or ties that burden you, otherwise you could recreate similar conditions or trade one hardship or bad relationship for another.

The Eight of Chalices card suggests that the need for personal transformation and fulfillment could alter your love life. As difficult as the choice may be to confront your fears and step away from your comfort zone, the change could be an inevitable step toward finding personal truth and creating happiness. Otherwise you could get lost in excuses, denial or wishful thinking, or rely on outside sources for distractions, security and pleasure. If you make changes willingly, this experience could find you prioritizing. Afterward, you'll be stronger and wiser. Once you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

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 Knave of Chalices card reversed suggests that a troubled childhood, being possessive or a lack of or emotional validation could be responsible for hurt feelings or the loss of certain long-held romantic ideals. You could be asking, 'What was I thinking?' or 'Why bother?' If you are caught up in petty quarrels, manipulation or promiscuity, or are feeling defensive, victimized, confused or paralyzed by fear, you may not be able to move forward in your love life or relationship. A heart-to-heart could renew enthusiasm or help you to become emotionally available.
