The Nine of Chalices card suggests that to the world you've got it going on. You may be in an enviable position of seeming to have the perfect domestic life. Beware, however, of a tendency to flaunt your romantic success or pride over others or your partner -- you don't want that to be the only way you get to feel validated, acknowledged, powerful and important. Lording it over others could make an opportunity to experience true satisfaction into little more than a photo op. Also, watch out for a tendency to grab the spotlight or indulge in compulsive behavior. These enticements could be substitutes for genuine sensual pleasures and intimacy or be a cover for hidden fears. Recognize what is really going on around you.

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 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 Ten of Chalices card suggests that you should celebrate the completion of a journey, transformation or commitment. It's time to back up the ones you love while giving them roots and wings. You can expect the collective sensation of having finally made it as one big happy family. Perhaps the most important lesson to be gleaned from this sense of fulfillment is to simply enjoy being in the moment. Honor and recognize your inner child through spontaneous and passionate expressions. You know that home, happiness and family are where the heart is. This sense of pride and joy may come from a focus on common values, a romantic desire sated or a dream achieved. Either way, you have an opportunity to share the love, express gratitude, expand your relationship and appreciate the stormy road that might have led to this renewal and wholeness.

The Hierophant card reversed suggests that you may take issue with conventional or traditional forms of commitment or be affected by the polarization of the same sex marriage debate. Broken vows, going against public or religious ideology or discontent can be a concern at this time if you are feeling patronized, neglected, played or used. Even a casual relationship deserves some respect, but don't get involved with someone for the sake of validation, as this can breed contempt or manipulation. Don't be afraid to take a stand or to go outside established rules or guidelines.

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 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 Hierophant card suggests that overplanning, putting on a show or placing too much emphasis on the conventional trappings of an event is certain to bring about disappointment or contempt for those who don't conform to 'proper' etiquette or ideology. Be sure your priorities are in order, because it's not just about you.

The Two of Chalices card reversed suggests that trust or approval might be damaged and hopes may be dashed. You could be drifting apart or disinclined to a reconciliation, or you might be facing a break-up or a disagreement regarding your arrangements and plans for the future. Before taking drastic action, be certain that you are not taking things too personally, reacting to unfounded gossip and social expectations or refusing to open your heart and see the other side because of pride. This trouble could actually serve as a blessing in disguise if you use it as a means to work to rebuild your own confidence and self-esteem through self-forgiveness and by learning to love yourself. Once done, you will embody this purpose, compassion, unconditional love and intention and will recognize your soul mate intuitively.

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.
