The Current State - Eight of Swords (reversed)
In the case of love, the Eight of Swords reversed means there might be some serious disagreements followed by silly little arguments within your relationship. Immediately find the bottom of all issues; arguments don't necessarily mean what it seems at the surface. If you continue your love search, this card leaves the hint that you need to start with yourself. Some work within is necessary before love can be found. Someone else will not complete you, and empty feelings within you will push others away.
Your Lover's Position - Nine of Wands
In love matters, always remember that nothing in this life will hold up if it is constantly being dissected. Give some space to your love when it is needed. If you have no one and want to be with someone, try to know that right now might not be the best time for that. Do you want to change some things within yourself? Now is the time to complete yourself emotionally. When you finally become ready to enter a relationship, the person who comes to you will also be whole. Don't rush things.
Nature of Your Issue - The Empress (reversed)
When the reversed Empress shows herself after a question related to love, you might find that you are suddenly pursued by a number of prospective love partners. If you happen to be in a relationship already, this card is a reminder, even in reverse, to begin to pay close attention to that inner voice regarding this relationship. Again, the Empress's message becomes: trust your intuition and instincts, and remember to follow what your heart says. If you don't, you will grow to regret it.
Your Desires - King of Wands
In love terms, this card is a great sign for you. He shows you that a person whom you care for also feels great about you, and holds some protective feelings. They will work very hard to make things work with you. You might be quite focused on your career at this time, but make room for love, even if the search for you continues, or you risk losing all except work.
Your Lover's Desires - Eight of Pentacles
If you have a love right now, either your workload or your partner's will interfere with your relationship. Make sure you create space and time for each other no matter what else you are doing. If you don't, you will suffer. If you remain single, this card tells you that you are focused in on money too much and your career to leave time for love. Look over those priorities and make time for it - if you want it.
Challenges You May Face - Three of Swords
With love, this drawn card is not necessarily indicative of an ending relationship. However, there will be pain or difficulty for you. If the affair is to keep up, both of you needs to work together. Talk to each other. It might be that your mate does not love you as you once thought. If this is true, it's not personal. Don't spare too much time for pain. It is simply a sign that something better is there for you. Don't try to force another person to feel what they don't feel. A person who truly cares will care of their own free will without any extra trying from you.
Challenges Your Lover May Face - Eight of Cups
You might make the decision that your relationship will soon end. If this is a definite for you, know that the right time won't come. You just need to do it. Don't go straight for someone new - you need your own space first.
The Future Outcome #1 - The Chariot (reversed)
When this card appears to you, it may be that you are assuming that you are beginning to get into a relationship with quite a special person and you feel the need for pushing forward quickly, or you might be feeling an urgency to leave a relationship. There is a large signal that either impulse needs to be tempered, especially if you are pushing too hard for that new relationship. Remember, waiting brings good things. Do not have fear in waiting.
The Future Outcome #2 - The Tower
This card might be, but doesn't have to be, a signal that a certain relationship will end. If you positively, absolutely do not want to see this happen, make sure you implement clear communication and any necessary damage control. Talk to your partner - see how they feel. Make no assumptions. Know for sure.
