"Key words: Act, direct, master, discipline, focus, effort
Now is the time to be proactive regarding matters of the heart. If you're looking for a relationship, take the initiative to find one. Take advantage of the many ways to meet your soul mate. This card is about action, action, action! If your current relationship is not moving in the direction you wish, do whatever is required to shift the direction. You're the master of your own destiny -- and that includes your relationships. Don't wait for others to make the first move or set the tone of the relationship. Take charge!
Creating and sustaining a good relationship requires discipline. It's not enough to be "in" a relationship -- you must "invest" in it as well. Be present in and focus on the relationship. Give every relationship the opportunity and time that it needs and deserves to flourish and grow. Now is the time to focus on your needs and the needs of your partner. Make the effort to maintain healthy boundaries for yourself and to respect the boundaries of others.
While rewarding relationships require effort, there must be a balanced effort from both partners. Perhaps it's time to examine your relationships. Are both partners putting forth equal effort to make the relationship work? Are you comfortable with the amount of effort relationships require of you? If any relationship feels draining or it's "not worth the effort," then perhaps it's time to move on.
Affirmation: I take charge of my relationships.
