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 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 Six of Swords card suggests that the worst might be over, but now what? It may be time to accept the facts -- move out of your comfort zone, seek refuge or guidance from someone in the same boat in order to resolve, reconcile and move on. See your way out of a negative situation, for it may have nothing left to offer you. Rebuilding trust or seeking a better life needs to be done although you may not meet it with much enthusiasm or confidence. Make sure you don't take your previous baggage with you on this emigration. You must dump the heartbreak, resentment, tension, dependency or ties that burden you, otherwise you could recreate similar conditions or trade one hardship or bad relationship for another.

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.

Take the direct approach and channel the influence of this Knight for gaining the advantage.

The Two of Swords card suggests that not only is love blind, but once bitten, twice shy. Take precautions and protect your interests. Be aware that keeping score, emotional detachment, hiding your feelings or keeping secrets may not bring understanding -- it might only put you on the defensive or create a romantic impasse. If you are turning a blind eye to what is going on around you in an effort to avoid emotional involvement, the resulting tension might impede your ability to move forward in your love life or relationship. Keep conduct or communications aboveboard to establish respect and boundaries.

Take it one day at a time.
