Your path through this life will include plenty of karmic development milestones, one of which could be this relationship. Your partner's sense of duty and responsibility will be an inspiration for you, and their life experiences will speak to you of where you're headed in your own life. This person will help you to focus on your path and move in the direction that's best for your personal development.
They'll set an example for you through their own choices and behavior, and they'll offer you practical advice -- what steps you should make in your education or career, how to deal with family or financial concerns and more. You'll find that they have solid ideas that you can relate to, and when you follow their advice, you'll take big leaps forward. Your lover's high standards will inspire you to be the best, most committed and focused person you can be. You'll look to them for guidance, as you may have done in another lifetime as their student or disciple. Though you're equals this time around, this will be a significant relationship for you once again, because it will help you develop at a personal, karmic level in a way that you might not achieve on your own.
