The King of Swords card suggests that truth, consequences and harsh reality have a way of coming out just when you least expect or want them to. Approach this King with intelligence and on his terms, which may include showing respect for traditional, established wisdom and virtue. Don't let him intimidate you, for he may grant you the official approval, forgiveness, deal or justice you seek. In matters of principle, he is compassionate but unmoved by emotional pleas, so remember to keep it impersonal. Let him do what he does best -- mediate, support and organize, and appreciate his single-minded attention to detail. Call upon his strength for confronting emotionally charged conflict within a relationship or turn to him for consultation on legal or financial matters that fall within his area of expertise and experience.

The Two of Swords card reversed suggests that letting down your guard to make an impulsive connection could release sexual tension or break a relationship stand-off, or it may precede a romantic reunion, infatuation or confrontation. While you might think that taking the first step is beneath you, you can make a move while still being respectful of your own feelings. On the contrary, efforts to remain distant, anonymous or indifferent may not work once admissions are made, blinders are removed or previous hurts are recognized or overcome. You may be too close to the situation to view the matter objectively. Listen to the voice of reason and see the truth.

The Sun card suggests that when you accept and love yourself, you are poised to fully enjoy a healthy and balanced love life or relationship. You may thrive in a partnership as each of you brings out the best in the other, and you may be content to exist in a world of your own creation. Just make sure that neither of you relies too much on the other for self-worth or support, as this can become an unwanted burden.

The Hermit card reversed suggests that you may feel insecure. Take extra care that you don't come across as defensive, shut others out or treat those who show concern or interest with hostility, or else you could ignite sentiments such as 'good riddance' or 'they're just jealous.' Lighten up and you might find what you seek, but don't fall victim to someone who may prey on your vulnerability or feelings of isolation or pretend to know what you are going through. You may need to face the truth alone.

The Seven of Swords card suggests that a bold approach might give you the upper hand in this matter. In fact, the possibility of being caught with your hand in the proverbial cookie jar might be half the thrill. You might need a cover or lookout, so enlist those on the inside to keep watch during your daring escapade, deception or tryst. To avoid unnecessary confrontation, be certain not to leave any little reminders of your intentions. This might be difficult -- you could be tempted to do so just to prove your ability to outwit people, particularly if you are simply playing games. Watch your back and be careful in whom you place your trust, for you could be in league with people who have motives of their own.

The Hanged Man card reversed suggests that you may be in denial or need constant flattery. It's time to peel back the emotional layers despite your fear of what they might reveal. Your intuition knows better. When you are ready to accept the truth about what's not working for you, you may find someone with whom you can identify and the reaction could be overwhelmingly encouraging.

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 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 Queen of Chalices card reversed suggests that you may have difficulty accepting love or intimacy without strings, or are tired of faking it or being exploited. Looking in the mirror and reassess the value and power you place in sex, beauty or compliance. You have much more to offer in a relationship. This habitual process of distancing yourself emotionally could be a defensive mechanism to keep from being abandoned or rejected by love again. There might not be any happiness or future in this solitary illusion or passionless situation. Take the opportunity to finally give voice to the tidal wave of hurt -- then get back out there. Start over and follow your heart. Once you meet your own emotional needs and find self-acceptance through self-forgiveness, you can let go of the past and let love in.

The Sun card reversed suggests that you might feel underappreciated or isolated. There may also be confidence or support issues that keep you from fully committing to or enjoying a healthy, vital love life. Keeping up appearances when the fire is almost gone (or for the sake of others) could be more about pride, codependency or ego. You deserve to shine, feel attractive and express your passion, even if it means moving on or getting away.
