Seven of Swords – Not a very positive card for relationships, mostly advising you to run away as fast as you can. Here we can see mind games in full swing and you would need to be very astute to keep up with the pace. Possibly sneakiness and very resourceful when it comes to making excuses or providing explanations. You might need to watch your back for all is not what it seems. Your power is being stolen by another, or you have given your heart to one who does not deserve it. This card can convincingly lie its way out of any situation. You may not be looking where you are going where your relationship is concerned and it is advisable to open your eyes before you walk into trouble. Question everything and don’t be taken for a fool. On the other-hand you or your partner may have a very good reason for sneaking around if they are trying to surprise you with a party or gift. This card can simply imply that you, the person your are interested in, or involved with, would prefer to be alone or stay single – The Lone Wolf Card.  You or your partner is in the military. ….Read Full Card Description

This card can also signal the return of a very remorseful partner, but can they be trusted? ….Read Full Card Description

Reversed – Getting out of, or away from, a controlling and dis-empowering relationship. This relationship will have taken its toll on you and left its scars. It will take time to get over it. Don’t think of getting into another relationship until you sort yourself out. You walked into that relationship and stayed longer than you should. You need to ask questions of yourself as to how you let it happen. Why did you allow yourself to be treated in such a manner. Time to concentrate on fixing any misfiring negative thought processes or you will find a similar relationship in the future. Building on your self-esteem, self-belief and self-confidence is what is important now. This card can also imply your failure to free or save yourself. Things may have gone too far as fear of the outcome roots you to the spot. You must find the strength and not give-up without a fight.  Take back your power. ….Read Full Card Description

Nine of Swords – There is deep stress, upset or worry connected to this relationship. Someone may be holding a terrible secret that is eating them from the inside out. This can highlight the early days and weeks after the collapse of a relationship or marriage. As a 9 Card it can also signal the final distressing stages before the ultimate collapse of a relationship. There is a feeling of great despair and hopelessness.

Reversed – Your worst fears are either confirmed or blown away. You may not be able to face friends or family. It might be shame or guilt as a secret is revealed or confessed? This card is often linked to finding the strength or courage to face problems in your relationship. There is only so much stress or worry you can cope with and it ends here. The worst may be over or just beginning so you will have to deal with it. You may feel you are living in the middle of a nightmare you can’t wake up from. Mental health issues might escalate. There could be signs of a breakdown. Like many of the Sword’s cards it does not signify happiness and joy within a relationship…..Read Full Card Description

Ten of Swords – It’s over so stop trying to flog a dead horse.  The relationship has run its course and has nowhere else to go.  You have gone to the bitter end with this one when maybe you should have called it a day much sooner. Everyone feels drained and emotionally exhausted. The final stages might have been quite traumatic for all involved. You may view the end as catastrophic or might feel quite relieved that it is all over. Time to say goodbye or farewell. You can start focusing on yourself once more and can be eager to move on. Other cards would need to support this. If involved in an abusive or violent relationship, then it may get worse under the influence of this card. You or your partner’s health may be causing concern.   Sometimes a relationship has to go right down before it can begin to come back up. If you feel there is still a realistic hope in saving it, then look to the light on the horizon in this card as it comes in to replace the dark. ….Read Full Card Description

Yes/No Card –  No, the death knell for relationships. Yes, if you feel you have something to work towards, as in a fresh start with strong resolve.

Pulling yourself up and dusting down after the end of a relationship. You are beginning to feel more positive about the future. You can see the colour in life once more. If you resisted the end of a relationship then you may be stuck and refuse to move on. You may be playing the victim card and are entrenched in bitterness and blame. You may be depressing to be around. Hate and vindictiveness may be your only driving force. You need to address this as it will taint your whole life and ruin the chances of finding a meaningful relationship in the future. This card can also suggest a  relationship that rises from the ashes as new life is breathed into its lungs. ….Read Full Card Description

Yes/No Card –  Yes to freedom and moving on. Yes to facing the truth. Yes to finding a way forward for your faltering relationship. No to refusing to let go.

Something serious may have happened but there is also a chance that this relationship has been dysfunctional from the start. It is not a healthy place to be. We might also be looking at serious depression or mental health issues that are tearing a relationship asunder.

The relationship may develop at a rapid pace. A time of great excitement, activity and socialising. This relationship could reach boiling point too fast though. If it does, it will either boil over or burn out.  Don’t be behind in coming forward. If you like someone, make your feelings known. Strike while the iron is hot as there is no time like the present. If you feel you are letting someone you care deeply about slip through your fingers then get up and do something about it. Go after them and get them back. Now here comes the warning.

Hurting You Will Give Me Great Pleasure!

King of Swords Reversed

King Reversed – He may not be interested in you or has not noticed you yet. Something is out of balance here. There may be too much emotion clouding your thought processes or the is a total lack of feeling. We may have a bit of a bully or control freak here and in worst case scenarios it could be quite extreme and unpleasant to be around. He has impossibly high standards set for his partner and also a list of rules and regulations. He sees himself as a superior being and at times above the law. He may think you inferior to him or could it be the other way round. He can be harsh, cold and terribly cutting in his remarks. He may have had a severe upbringing and knows no better. However, he may just have a ruthless streak in him. This reversed King can also represent an absent partner or father. He can abruptly leave  a relationship with little care for the upset he causes. Unless you are like him, you will find it impossible to win any argument, and to be honest, it is best not to try. He is vicious with his tongue, his every sentence carefully constructed to cause the most damage. He is also capable of dishing out punishment for what he considers disobedience or defiant behaviour. You might feel unfairly treated or have been denied justice. You could find it difficult to assert yourself. You probably have no say in your relationship and that your opinion accounts for nothing. You may also choose to ignore good advice or heed a warning from a well-informed source. On the other hand this reversed King can highlight the diminishing cognitive functions of a once powerful mind and brain. Your partner may be mentally unwell or severely depressed. He can also suggest a weak-willed, ineffective and indecisive partner who lacks focus. You may be the decision-maker. ….Read Full Card Description

Yes/No Card – No, this relationship is not worth pursuing. Maybe he is not interested in you or that he sees you as being inferior to him. He may want to stay single. No, this reversed personality is not someone you want to get involved with. Yes, to getting out before it is too late.
