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 King of Wands card reversed suggests that you should try not to torment yourself over the past or over that which you can not control, especially through denial, which could make for a defensive attitude. Be open to a move or to reassessing relationship goals, for there may be little or nothing left to get out of this situation as it stands now. Watch out for a tendency to drown in nostalgia, for reminiscing over past achievements take precedence over planning for future endeavors. That could intimate that the glory days or passionate adventures are all behind you. Use this energy to plug your relationship or love life back into a power source.

The Chariot card reversed suggests that you may not be getting any action, have hidden conditions or might rely too heavily on a constant parade of players. Before you put any more time or effort into this arena, be certain you are not just trying to get attention or satisfy ego or pride. If you are not on the right track, any victory may be exaggerated or a proposition might not be well received.

The Five of Pentacles card suggests that your perceived deficiencies, anxieties or cravings may only exist in comparison to the group that you feel is excluding you. Remember that you have options. You are a survivor, able to deal with the flaws of your partner and the cold shoulder from those who see your values as unusual or suspect. Either may be putting a strain on your love life. You can find strength in adversity, so don't be too quick to curse your lot. Be willing to face the unknown hardships for the sake of future improvements, growth and acceptance. Soon you will be in a place where you can express yourself fully. For better or worse, you may still have each other as well as your faith that some good can come of this.

The Ace of Pentacles card suggests that the conditions may be rife with possibilities. Whatever you are nurturing is growing and may provide the first fruits of security, comfort or sensual pleasure. All of the five senses are at your disposal and tempt you into staying put and indulging your appetites, particularly as they relate to your love life or relationship. Now may be the right time to enjoy physical intimacy and to appreciate beauty and other sensual pleasures. You can also strengthen your connection and explore your sexuality. Romantic or feel-good physical encounters or even pregnancy are possible. Share tokens or symbols of love and affection. And don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.

The Temperance card reversed suggests that extreme emotions could flare up as patience is pushed to the limit, which means built-up frustrations finally seek their release. Once it is all out there, you can regain composure or self-control and work toward a long-term solution or compromise. As long as you don't expect a quick fix, you can recover a balance between the stresses of daily life, personal gratification and romantic desires or relationship goals that may have been taking a back seat to emotional or sexual dysfunctions. Take it one day at a time.

The Ace of Chalices card reversed suggests that if your heart isn't in it, then you should get off the emotional roller coaster. If your heart is in it, pour out your feelings to the one you love before it's too late. Crying over spilt milk, taking things too personally, turning your back on potential romance or commitment or drowning sorrows may be excuses for avoiding a confrontation with the stranger in the mirror. Loneliness born of fear or damaged self-esteem may lay hidden beneath a calm exterior. Learn to depend upon yourself for fulfillment, attention, interest and consideration. The satisfaction gleaned from others' approval is temporary and superficial. Work toward wholeness and happiness by being willing to expand your own expectations. Embrace the commitment and sacrifice necessary to cross your own emotional boundaries.

The Four of Wands card reversed suggests that you may be facing a turning point in your romantic situation, or that you have achieved your romantic goals in an unexpected or private way. Like the Peggy Lee song, you may now be asking, 'Is that all there is?' While this sentiment is normal, it is wise not to gloss over it. It is a good time to reflect on fundamentally divergent or opposing ideas for your goals as a couple.

The Six of Wands card suggests that order has been restored. The competition or altercation is over, and you may have emerged as the winner. All eyes may be on you. Those who supported or helped you to come into your own or elevate you to this position are watching with particular attention as you may be riding high. Confident, motivated and popular, you may embrace this high-profile romance or new place of honor with pride and high hopes for the future, or through expressions of public or visible displays of affection or romance.

The Knight of Wands card suggests that proposals or ideas could come out of the blue, and you may need to think fast on your feet or improvise. This could be an opportunity to add spark or zest to your love life or relationship or to follow through on romantic plans. You might feel lost or crazy in love. Things could go too far or too fast, however, especially if one of you is unable to keep up with the changes.
