On paper you and your lover don't work at all. You're directed, goal-oriented, a little impetuous, a lot dramatic. Your lover, on the other hand, is solid and, to your mindset, a little stodgy.
You come up with grandiose dreams, your sweetie stomps on them by pointing out all the flaws. You express dreams and your lover lets in all that bothersome reality. Sometimes it feels like you're a big balloon all inflated with hope, and your mate is a big ol' pin just waiting to puncture you. No wonder you've experienced some friction over the course of your relationship; fights little and big. But look more deeply at the problems you've been having. Is your mate trying to bring you down, or give you a hand by helping ensure you turn big ideas into actual plans? You've gotten so wound up with what you view as criticisms that you've stopped listening to the sense behind what your lover says. Are you playing the part of a rebellious adolescent, agitating against Mummy and Daddy? Act your age, sweetie, and try listening like an adult instead. Your lover has much to teach you when you're willing to let go and learn.
