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.

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 Five of Swords card reversed suggests that at this time, it may be best to leave well enough alone or to take the moral high ground, as issues or memories of disrespect, abuse, cheating or trickery may be lying right below the surface. Opening this can of worms may bring everyone down. Keep your information or knowledge of a hidden truth to yourself, and just privately enjoy any personal victory without resorting to public embarrassment. All the parties involved have had an equal hand in bringing about the current circumstances, so any attempts to 'win' will be ultimately fruitless. Let it go -- it isn't worth it.

The Six of Chalices card reversed suggests that the good old days may not have been that great. The process of letting go of the past could be long overdue, especially now that the flattery or romantic advances are no longer enough to allow yourself to be taken for granted or feel belittled, patronized or objectified. You may have been avoiding a confrontation with childhood pain, abuse, dysfunction, mistakes or abandonment. Acknowledging this youthful suffering, loss of innocence or rejection that might have taken on larger-than-life proportions or could be influencing your current relationships. It may also be the first step in a reality check that can ultimately help you to become more emotionally connected to your own desires and needs or to rekindle passion, beauty and simple pleasure in your life.

The Seven of Chalices card suggests that when you envision your own potential, you should set your sights high, but be reasonable. Keeping your head out of the clouds (especially with romantic matters) can't be emphasized too strongly, otherwise your thinking may reflect an elusive Harlequin romance-type standard for happiness, passion and love. You might be operating under the deception that if you were thin enough, beautiful enough or rich enough, then your romantic dreams could come true. One of the key differences between what you have now and that which you may long for may be self-esteem. Ultimately, altering your perceptions and priorities away from unfulfilled illusions to what has authentic value enables you to better identify or connect with what you really want -- leading you to no longer dream it, but to be it.
