The Eight of Swords card reversed suggests that you may feel at your wit's end. You sense that you are unable to cope with the reality of your love life, or are bound by circumstance, duty or criticism, but you are too fearful or in the dark regarding your options to confront the situation. Normally, you might be guarded or give thought to consequences, but enough may be enough. You might finally be ready to remove the blinders, forgive or accept yourself, and assert your independence. The 'some day' you might be waiting for might be today. It may be the right time for a moment of revelation, discovery or surprise, when that which has been hidden or unknown is revealed. Your self-esteem and confidence could rise as a result. Be particular and uphold your newly discovered standards.

The Eight of Pentacles card reversed suggests that sex sells, but the quality, not the quantity, of your sensual self should be your consistent measure for improving earthly pleasures. Don't let it be just a way to keep score or merely something to cross off the to-do list -- otherwise, you might become bored with the same old same old. Try not to be absorbed by the minutiae of every detail. Find something in which the process itself gives you pleasure, rather than only in its tangible end result. Having your eye on the prize can keep you focused, but a preoccupation with perfectionism might adversely affect the support and security of your domestic situation, or slow the progress in what could otherwise become a labor of love.

The Emperor card reversed suggests that this Emperor might have issues with performance, dependency, authority or accepting consequences. He may expect others to provide for him, or he'll make unreasonable excuses for his failures or neglect while tending to indulge his passions casually or without commitment or respect for others. Protect yourself, accept these shortcomings, or be prepared to assume responsibility on your own. If you believe you have to be sexual or controlling in order to feel valued, then the absence or rejection of this influence might need to be healed before you can feel secure.

The Five of Chalices card reversed suggests that there is a chance that you're not being honest with yourself. It's time you dealt with unresolved issues, deep fears or unfinished business, which, like a silent undercurrent or an unbridged gap in your heart, could be affecting intimacy in your relationship or love life. Staying busy, turning to familiar comforts or resorting to compulsive behavior could be covering up denial, suffering, stagnation or heartache. Genuinely come to terms with the truth by confronting or forgiving your own role in whatever it is you regret so that you can let go, move on and become more open to romance. There is a safe harbor of support and security available to you, but you might need to seek it out. Recovery and healing are inner work and can begin only after there has been acknowledgement of the hurts that have occurred.

The Four of Pentacles card reversed suggests that the time may soon be at hand where you have to change your mind or focus, or let go of the clutter or craving. Try to loosen up, give until it hurts or throw it away altogether. But remember that your motivations need to come from a place of humility and understanding. If you are giving just to satisfy ego concerns, the situation may become even trickier. If the situation is destructive or the collection no longer offers pleasure, you need to step up and be the bigger person. Think abut what benefits everyone in this situation.

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 Ace of Chalices card reversed suggests that if your heart isn't in it, then you should get off the emotional roller coaster. If your heart is in it, pour out your feelings to the one you love before it's too late. Crying over spilt milk, taking things too personally, turning your back on potential romance or commitment or drowning sorrows may be excuses for avoiding a confrontation with the stranger in the mirror. Loneliness born of fear or damaged self-esteem may lay hidden beneath a calm exterior. Learn to depend upon yourself for fulfillment, attention, interest and consideration. The satisfaction gleaned from others' approval is temporary and superficial. Work toward wholeness and happiness by being willing to expand your own expectations. Embrace the commitment and sacrifice necessary to cross your own emotional boundaries.

The Four of Swords card reversed suggests that while you might be seeking relief from stagnant romantic conditions, you are not yet ready to let go. Try not to overreact or overdo things in an effort to salvage a broken love connection when you might be better off lying low in order to recharge or calm your nerves. Try not to fall back in this old pattern, but don't go overboard, otherwise in an effort to avoid feeling trapped again you could be scattered or disrespectful. You need to recover your wits before making your next move. Be willing to raise your expectations or overcome fear of rejection, discovery or isolation. If you want to get back in the game or close the book on a previous chapter, look outside of your usual haunts or romantic types. Tune in to your own passion to move forward with a sense of freedom and purpose.

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.
