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 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 Nine of Pentacles card reversed suggests that you may be in a prime position to commemorate the end and the beginning of a cycle in your love life. A desire to be free and retreat may take precedence. Reject artificial or attention-getting behavior. Temporary lovers or shallow distractions may not cultivate trust or may bring only momentary fulfillment, for these things need constant replenishment and upkeep. Aimlessness, dependency or wasteful indulgences may not leave much room for the soul time you need in order to foster personal development. Instead, reclaim your sensuality by nurturing those wild, but finer things you may have taken for granted. Those simple things that you can count on to almost take care of themselves will give back in abundance.

The Empress card reversed suggests that manipulation, lust, emotional outbursts or interference may not serve your romantic or domestic interests. Rather than inspiring respect, devotion or love, a tantrum could instead demonstrate emotional immaturity, ignorance or self-indulgence. Try not to lose your patience or overcontrol the situation, or else you may seem ungrateful or unprepared. Don't let Mother (literally or metaphorically) get in the middle.
