You're headed in a certain direction in your life, and your involvement with your lover only helps you to progress even further, because they tune in to your ambitions and what's good for you on a very basic level. They simply naturally understand you and what you need to do in your life, and they're able to help you make strides into your future just by being themselves -- by supporting and encouraging you, and by being there for you emotionally. This is a soft, subtle influence, but an important one nonetheless.
They have an intuitive recognition of the subtlety and complexity of life, and they're interested in the interconnectedness of all things and people; and you derive a lot of truth and guidance from your partner's spiritual ideas. You could both feel as if your bond is familiar and comfortable from the start, because you just tune in and recognize each other so easily and naturally. That helps to establish a close and tender bond between you.
