The Four of Pentacles card suggests that if you love something, set it free. If it returns, it is yours. If you hang on to the status quo or to a person because you fear being alone again, you may not realize you are already isolated or backed up against a wall with no way out except to change immediately. Are you restricting yourself or using your once-treasured tokens to construct an empty shell that may no longer offer luxury, security or comfort? Money can't buy happiness and you can't take it with you when you go. With the proper incentive, you can bargain your way out of the relationship dog house if you let go of some of your stubborn pride and accept the consequences.

The Five of Swords card reversed suggests that at this time, it may be best to leave well enough alone or to take the moral high ground, as issues or memories of disrespect, abuse, cheating or trickery may be lying right below the surface. Opening this can of worms may bring everyone down. Keep your information or knowledge of a hidden truth to yourself, and just privately enjoy any personal victory without resorting to public embarrassment. All the parties involved have had an equal hand in bringing about the current circumstances, so any attempts to 'win' will be ultimately fruitless. Let it go -- it isn't worth it.

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 Seven of Chalices card suggests that when you envision your own potential, you should set your sights high, but be reasonable. Keeping your head out of the clouds (especially with romantic matters) can't be emphasized too strongly, otherwise your thinking may reflect an elusive Harlequin romance-type standard for happiness, passion and love. You might be operating under the deception that if you were thin enough, beautiful enough or rich enough, then your romantic dreams could come true. One of the key differences between what you have now and that which you may long for may be self-esteem. Ultimately, altering your perceptions and priorities away from unfulfilled illusions to what has authentic value enables you to better identify or connect with what you really want -- leading you to no longer dream it, but to be it.

The Fool card suggests that you should get out and try something new or spontaneous. You may be surprised to find that you are falling head over heels, are on the brink of something exciting, or that you will have the opportunity to come out of a romantic rut where it 'feels like the first time' all over again. Take ownership of your romantic desires.

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 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 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.
