After some time spent together as a couple, you've noticed that you're not entirely compatible when it comes to finding your life paths. You want to understand the direction your lover wants to take, and to support them in their choices, but you both find it hard to do so because you just don't understand the differences between you. Your lack of support for each other even has the effect of preventing each of you from following your true path -- and this has to be remedied, because an energy like this could hurt an otherwise good relationship.
If you can accept your differences and grow accustomed to the fact that you're not as in sync as you might like to be, you started the process toward allowing each other to find your own way. Making compromises is necessary; for one thing, sometimes you have to bite your tongue when you're just about to offer some well-meant but not necessarily helpful criticism! But learning to hold back and watch instead of trying to get in there and manipulate is a wonderful lesson for both of you. After a while, you might even find that you're putting your attention back where it should be -- on your own ambitions in life, instead of on how to change those of your partner.
