One of the best ways to manifest your needs in this relationship will be to go deeply together into your own interiors: the parts of yourselves that are powerful and passionate, and ready for transformation. Exploring this intense emotional energy together will be your ticket to building the kind of deep union you'll both wish and hope for. This could be difficult, uncomfortable work at times, as old hurts and anxieties flare up anew, demanding that you feel them thoroughly and process them this time.
But the good news is, if you can work together on creating a mutually supportive relationship, you'll have one another to lean on through this process. If you play this right, you'll get to know yourselves more thoroughly while becoming a closer, more committed couple in the process. Remember, though, the point of all this should not be power plays or manipulation. It should be about getting to know yourselves better, and becoming a closer, more committed couple in the process. So guard closely any secrets you learn about your partner, and trust them to do the same with yours.
