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 King of Swords card suggests that truth, consequences and harsh reality have a way of coming out just when you least expect or want them to. Approach this King with intelligence and on his terms, which may include showing respect for traditional, established wisdom and virtue. Don't let him intimidate you, for he may grant you the official approval, forgiveness, deal or justice you seek. In matters of principle, he is compassionate but unmoved by emotional pleas, so remember to keep it impersonal. Let him do what he does best -- mediate, support and organize, and appreciate his single-minded attention to detail. Call upon his strength for confronting emotionally charged conflict within a relationship or turn to him for consultation on legal or financial matters that fall within his area of expertise and experience.

The Ten of Pentacles card reversed suggests that family ties are important, but you shouldn't let them interfere in your love life or they may put you in a position to choose their traditions over your happiness. If your romantic choice comes from the wrong side of the tracks or your choices are considered unsound, you may come to resent their influence. If, as a couple, you are faced with caring for an aging parent, your relationship may not be able to handle the strain, but only if you consider the hardship to be measured by dollars and self gratification. Neglecting your partner, disrespecting elders or letting yourself go to keep up with the demands of intergenerational commitments might add to any domestic disturbance or resentment regarding obligation. Redefine the measure of prosperity and you might find that you are wealthy indeed.

The Queen of Chalices card reversed suggests that you may have difficulty accepting love or intimacy without strings, or are tired of faking it or being exploited. Looking in the mirror and reassess the value and power you place in sex, beauty or compliance. You have much more to offer in a relationship. This habitual process of distancing yourself emotionally could be a defensive mechanism to keep from being abandoned or rejected by love again. There might not be any happiness or future in this solitary illusion or passionless situation. Take the opportunity to finally give voice to the tidal wave of hurt -- then get back out there. Start over and follow your heart. Once you meet your own emotional needs and find self-acceptance through self-forgiveness, you can let go of the past and let love in.

Only one of you will be able to gain the advantage. Right now, however, it is all about the game or the challenge as well as setting and testing boundaries.
