The Seven of Swords card reversed suggests that the jig may be up. Remorse, guilt, fear or having someone discover your secret could have you waving the white flag. Romantic games are all well and good, but this moment finds you reluctant to follow through, especially if you have been in pursuit of someone you thought knew the score; conversely, you could be the person on the receiving end of the deception. You could be feeling exposed, vulnerable, betrayed or desperate. If you have little left to lose by maintaining your cover or if you have been covering for someone else, you may feel the need to show all your cards. If you are not the love 'em and leave 'em type, you might actually feel relieved, albeit a bit startled to be caught with your hand in the cookie jar.

The Four of Pentacles card suggests that if you love something, set it free. If it returns, it is yours. If you hang on to the status quo or to a person because you fear being alone again, you may not realize you are already isolated or backed up against a wall with no way out except to change immediately. Are you restricting yourself or using your once-treasured tokens to construct an empty shell that may no longer offer luxury, security or comfort? Money can't buy happiness and you can't take it with you when you go. With the proper incentive, you can bargain your way out of the relationship dog house if you let go of some of your stubborn pride and accept the consequences.

The Three of Pentacles card reversed suggests that your relationship might benefit from assistance or a reality check, particularly if one of you is demanding and the other is struggling to provide. Both of you may need to pull together or go back to the drawing board to overcome a financial deficit, trust issues or lack of motivation. On the other hand, it could be a third person, overwork, or the lack of planning or money that interferes with the enjoyment of genuine physical intimacy and security. The blueprints for making it work are available to you -- resolve to follow them and you can dig yourself out. Once you do, you'll find an almost spiritual quality to what you do and how you live. Then all you touch will be beautiful, intentional and productive.

The Seven of Pentacles card suggests that you should use a brief break to assess and make adjustments to your priorities or relationship. You can also simply capture the moment and admire or consider the progress made. Much may depend on the full maturation of this matter, so be patient and persevere without rushing to judgment. Remind yourself of the purpose of what you are doing. There is much work ahead, but the time is not yet ripe for you to act. Don't assume anything or meddle, but let nature take its course. Stick to tending your own backyard and your interest will flourish and give back to you sevenfold. Don't hurry, for shortcuts at this point could spoil your chances.

The Six of Swords card reversed suggests that you might be afraid to take a chance on love after rejection, loss or defeat, but sticking close to home or making excuses may only be alienating you from someone who could serve as a guide or friend. You may not be ready to take the next step, but this could be a warning that you're ruining your own chances at happiness by being unwilling to compromise or afraid to try new opportunities. Leave behind old baggage that helped to form your comfort zone. If it isn't working for you anymore, don't keep going back for more. If you feel you are up the creek without a paddle, get out and swim for the shore.

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 Temperance card reversed suggests that extreme emotions could flare up as patience is pushed to the limit, which means built-up frustrations finally seek their release. Once it is all out there, you can regain composure or self-control and work toward a long-term solution or compromise. As long as you don't expect a quick fix, you can recover a balance between the stresses of daily life, personal gratification and romantic desires or relationship goals that may have been taking a back seat to emotional or sexual dysfunctions. Take it one day at a time.

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 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 Chariot card reversed suggests that you may not be getting any action, have hidden conditions or might rely too heavily on a constant parade of players. Before you put any more time or effort into this arena, be certain you are not just trying to get attention or satisfy ego or pride. If you are not on the right track, any victory may be exaggerated or a proposition might not be well received.
