I used a general past-present-future tarot spread and guidance card from the Romance Angels Oracle Deck,
Overall theme: At the bottom of the deck is the 8 of Pentacles. You or your partner are working hard on something. This could be literally spending too much time at work, which is creating an imbalance in your relationship. This could also be working hard on finding harmony and balance in your relationship.
Past: Strength reversed and Knight of Cups: It appears that you or your partner felt like they were thrown off balance by entering into a loving relationship. Love and our desire to be loved are powerful. It's possible there was a loss of self-control entering into the relationship or an inability to tame the "beast within." There could have been a fear of expressing your whole self with your partner or vice versa. There was a feeling of being overwhelmed by forces outside of your control. Passions, instincts and urges were suppressed in order to enter into a love relationship. It's possible that you or your partner were not loving and accepting ALL of themselves-the light and dark side.
Present: 10 of Swords and The Hierophant reversed: It's not as bad as it looks! It seems someone is feeling defeated, betrayed or stabbed in the back. This most likely signifies more of a reaction to problems than to the problems themselves. It could also signify feeling betrayed by what you thought a relationship was supposed to be based on how you were raised and educated. This could also be clinging to outdated ideas or inappropriate principles on how a partnership operates. It appears that past hurts have built up and could be effecting your relationship and there is a need to wipe the slate clean, forgive the past and gain a fresh perspective on your relationship. It is important to live in the moment and not operate from a place of past hurts.
Future: 2 of Swords and King of Swords reversed: My interpretation here is intuitive-based rather than using traditional meanings of cards. It appears that you or your partner will need to let your guard down and stop protecting your heart. When you operate from a place of fear of being hurt, you are blocking the good energy from coming to you as well. There is a need to see things from another perspective and from your partner's perspective. Listen and communicate from the heart.
Romance Angels: Forgiving and Learning: As you release and heal from the past, you experience more love in your present moments. Your heart can give and receive bliss of romance by clearing away the cobwebs of the past. It's necessary to detoxify any old anger, blame or lack of forgiveness you may be hanging onto. This includes forgiving yourself. If you call upon the romance angels and ask them to help you release and heal your past, they'll clear away the heaviness so that your heart can soar with happiness.
Numerology: The cards add up to a 6. 6 is a number of harmony, balance, family and community. It is a loving and nurturing energy. This shows the potential for total harmony. However, in order to do this you will need to drop into your heart. There is no logic or rationalizing love. Open your heart and love yourself and partner for all that they are.
