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.

The Three of Swords card reversed suggests that you can overcome this hurt or loss once you get the hint about taking things too personally or too much to heart. The worst may have already passed, but now it is up to you. You can either see things clearly and let go or choose to let the pain consume you. However, you are not alone. There are others who have had similar experiences and are learning to trust or love again. Lean on these people for guidance on confronting and overcoming heartbreak. Learn how to turn hurt into self-empowerment and action by pledging 'never again' to intimidation, jealousy, ignorance or blind trust -- and then move on. Lay low and objectively let go of the emotional drama. Holding onto it only increases tension and puts you on the defensive.
