The Current State - Knight of Pentacles (reversed)
This card reversed might mean that you feel bored in love right now. The best way to deal with it is to communicate, especially in a committed relationship. People cannot read minds - ask for changes that you want. You might just receive. If you remain single, it's not a good time for settling down. You need to let your possible partners know right away that you only want a fun time, and you are exploring things. Get out and have fun, but stay honest. You are the only person who can spice up your own life.
Your Lover's Position - The World (reversed)
If there is a committed relationship in your life, perhaps one or both of you feels stagnant or stuck at the appearance of this reversed card. Be honest with each other and with yourself. If you practice honesty and really try, you might find the relationship coming to newer heights. Love is very interesting and positive right now. Reach out if you are currently looking. Talk to new people and mingle. Don't shut down because you are afraid - this won't change anything. Stay open and positive.
Nature of Your Issue - The Lovers (reversed)
This card, though in reversal, becomes a great omen in your life for a few days. The reversed card in the context of love only slightly brings down an overall positive energy for some love coming to you. The card might also be indicative of small delays in the quickness which you start having positive feelings about love generally. Still, be positive. Now is a time for going out to meet others.
Your Desires - Two of Swords
This card is a romantic good omen, especially for that ongoing love affair. The relationship will transition into an easier, lighter, balanced place. You will both be treated as equals in the relationship. If you happen to be searching, look in the mirror first. Are there any issues that might be holding you back? Deal with these before trying to find someone. People are put off by great amounts of baggage. No one is supposed to be the other piece of you; rather they only enhance who you already are. Once you find your inner happiness the relationship will come to you.
Your Lover's Desires - Eight of Swords
In love, the Eight of Swords card will point you to the deeper need to give your relationship a serious re-thinking. You might be holding on to that person who is very bad in your life because you feel you don't want to be alone. If this is true, start thinking about yourself. Unhealthy relationships are never better than single life. If you still seek love, look within and find out if you appreciate yourself. No one else will be able to fix your inner peace. Start with the self.
Challenges You May Face - Temperance (reversed)
If the Temperance card is reversed, you need to research the self - along with any relationships - and see if they are balanced. Review what is brought to you by others and what you might be offering them. Perhaps you think you deliver more than 100% to your partner while the other person does not deliver as much. Perhaps your partner views things in reverse and thinks you don't give as much! If, currently, you are searching for someone, and you get the reversed Temperance card, you might be alienating others by giving too much. Find your own security before trying to move forward. Another person is not meant to 'complete you'.
Challenges Your Lover May Face - Strength (reversed)
This card in reverse during love or romance questions holds the same basic meaning as the upright version. Generally, the love in your life is going great. If you have a relationship, it is highly likely that it is strong. It is mutually beneficial and supportive. If you are searching for love, this time is better than ever to meet others with similar interests. You might find yourself in a state of extreme self-confidence. Put yourself out there! You will be quite happily surprised with the way things go. There is only one caveat with this reversal card - use a bit of caution to not over-estimate the strength within a relationship; remember not to push too hard on boundaries or bad things will happen.
The Future Outcome #1 - The Wheel of Fortune
It is highly possible that your relationship is in dire need of a re-negotiation, or maybe it no longer suits you. If the relationship is committed, however, it is not yet doomed. You will have to take steps if you are to hold on. Discuss feelings - this is the best hope for survival. If you happen to be looking, first become extremely clear on who you want in your life, then put yourself out there - either online or through friends to find that person.
The Future Outcome #2 - Six of Swords (reversed)
In a love context, this card in reverse might mean that there is a confrontation coming soon. This confrontation, initiated by you, will deal with some issues that need to be worked through if the relationship is to proceed. It is not necessary to argue; if the communication is calm it will go well. However, it is not a good time to hold tightly to things that need to be let go. Consider what to say before saying it. If you don't think things through, the damage might be irreversible.
