"Key words: Reflect, accept, decide, clarity, responsibility, fairness
Sometimes our ego prevents us from seeing events clearly. It's time to detach emotionally from a relationship or situation so that you can step back and reevaluate. Reflect upon how the relationship is working. Is it satisfying? What role do you play in its harmony or disharmony? An honest appraisal is required in order to gain clarity and help you better understand what might need to be done to improve it. This is true even if the relationship is already a good one.
It's important to accept that your previous actions, decisions, and beliefs have led you to your current situation, whether it's pleasant or difficult. We do steer the course of our lives, although often without conscious intent. By assessing your situation and accepting responsibility for it, you're able to free yourself from the need to blame another person or Destiny. There's no guilt associated with this card -- only clarity and empowerment.
Once you've detached yourself from and examined a relationship, lack of relationship, or other matter of the heart, you're in a better position to decide what your next step might be. Remember that the Detach card knows no ego. Decisions arrived at as a result of drawing this card must be fair and balanced for everyone involved.
Affirmation: I accept the role I play in creating my relationships and my life.
