Mismatched beliefs lie at the core of your troubles, and things will get worse before they get better. It is likely that you have spent the last few years on some type of quest -- travel? Something spiritual?
Advanced education? Your experiences have changed you, broadened your perspectives. And suddenly your lover doesn't seem to measure up. You feel like you can do better and that secret thought seems to add a negative energy to your pairing, playing a part in misunderstandings. Your lover, made nervous by these unconscious shifts, is apt to make big, startling decisions and say just the wrong thing to set you off. You must realize that though you've made big changes, your lover is still the same person you met and adored. Leave room in your personal growth curve for your sweetie. Don't expect your mate to keep up with the new you without some coaching. Instead, channel your natural generosity and slowly, gently, usher your mate into loving -- and living with -- the new you. Invite your lover into your life. This adjustment period will yield great rewards; don't give up just yet.
