The Ten of Swords card reversed suggests that you may be unwilling to let the matter rest, find closure or let go of an old romantic hurt. You might feel heartbroken, abused or at rock bottom, but in your mind you may be the hero for enduring such difficulties, especially if you have put all your hopes or trust into this situation or relationship. Go out with dignity or make the inevitable changes on your own terms, and you might actually feel relieved, in control and liberated. Brighter days are still ahead for you. While this may be the end of one era, it can be the beginning of another as long as you let go of the painful past and don't keep throwing yourself to the wolves in order to prove yourself or your love. If it isn't working for you anymore, move on or make a clean sweep of it rather than hurting or incriminating yourself out of fear.

The High Priestess card reversed suggests that turning on the charm could be part of a romantic strategy, and emotional resolve may crumble in favor of satisfying lust, desire or revenge. The attraction or release may seem sweet at first, but it could backfire, resulting in remorse or anger. Make a conscious effort to see beyond the moment or control your passions, otherwise you may end up feeling dissatisfied. You don't have to be sexual to feel valued.

The Tower card reversed suggests that the damage may have already been done. If you are sticking your head in the sand for fear that facing the drama head-on might be ruinous, you might be surprised if the inevitable impact or shock isn't as drastic as you though. The other person might actually be expecting it. If you have built barriers of arrogance or inadequacy, your illusions may be dispelled in a flash. An unexpected moment of comeuppance or surprise could knock you off your pedestal like a bolt out of the blue.

The Knight of Pentacles card suggests that it is ironic that at the abundant banquet of life, most poor suckers are starving or trying to buy what should be had for free. Don't be one of them. Use this downtime to appreciate your current status, to make practical decisions that are based on the actual effort you are willing to expend and to reassess where your relationship is heading in the future. What you value, protect or work at will eventually take on a life of its own and give back to you that which you have put in. Get real about the progress, priorities and quality of your love life, domestic situation or standard of living. Above all, keep it simple and don't worry about what other people do.

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 Ace of Swords card reversed suggests that at this time certain factors don't add up to a convincing argument. You may not have all the information you need to make a definite decision or to direct the question toward its logical conclusion as it relates to your love life or relationship. Trust and respect your inner voice before turning to outside opinion. You may not be ready to take the next logical step, are not seeing things clearly or are at odds with your personal convictions. Don't give in to self-doubt or it will make you vulnerable to disrespect, excuses or distrust. Demonstrate consideration and honor for yourself, or no one else will, either. Respect your need for more time and 'know thyself' before you make any declarations, connections or contact, but don't overthink things.

The Ace of Wands card suggests that the potential for a new sexual attraction, love connection, fertility or readiness to pursue intimacy could be liberating, but you may have to take matters into your own hands if communication or inhibition is an issue. Enthusiasm, passion and spontaneous or innovative romantic plans or announcements could be present in your love life or relationship at this time.

The Queen of Swords card reversed suggests that putting up a wall may have served its purpose, but it might be time to let go of the false security that could be interfering in your love life. What was once a defense could now be reinforcing feelings of abandonment, irrational thinking or self-deception. It may take more will and courage to try again than to remain the long-suffering martyr. When you find you are tired of being right but alone, you can change your mind and find resolution or healing beginning with an honest acknowledgement of the situation, along with responsible and direct communication. Grieve for your losses and accept that love isn't perfect. An underlying belief that perfection can exist is what creates such disappointed expectations in the first place.

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.
