Jupiter opposite Mercury

Overly idealistic

Kelli Fox

You have to be careful about how you communicate, because you set up a pattern of projection and idealism in the early stages of your relationship that lead to confused interactions later on. Your lover's image of you is positive, but it's larger than life -- inaccurate, and with a set of built-in standards that are hard to live up to. Needless to say, this idealized image of you could lead to disappointments down the line, when they wake up to the uncomfortable truth that you are, in fact, only human, flawed and incomplete like everyone else.

Idealizing each other comes from a good, well-intentioned place in the beginning, of course. You recognize each other's mental strengths, you feel energized and optimistic when you're together and your lover, especially, starts to look up to you as a sort of mentor -- someone whom they think can teach them all about life and how to live it best. In this process, they might lose sight of their own values or goals, because they're so busy looking to you for yours. You both need to show yourselves respect as well as each other; you must promote your own mental growth instead of looking to someone else to stimulate it. Strive to see each other as the human beings that you truly are, rather than the images you project onto each other -- as your true salvation.
