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.

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 Ace of Chalices card suggests that you should listen to your heart, trust your intuition and follow your dreams. Share your feelings in order to reach out and touch someone and you'll find it becomes easier to offer your love without restraint or condition. The result may be a powerful, renewable wave of gentle passion and arousal that brings good news, social or intimate invitations or proposals. This energy creates other opportunities for celebrating joy, consummating love or experiencing satisfaction. Secure domestic bliss or wholeness by being willing to expand your own expectations, embrace commitment, cross your own emotional boundaries and confront fears. Self-forgiveness, compassion, honest communication and exchange are key.

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.
