This person helped you find your life path in a past life, and they could do it again in this one. Something in their energy -- some sense of spontaneity and enthusiasm for life, some natural ability to spot opportunities and grab hold of them -- naturally attracted you to this person all those lifetimes ago, and it happens again in this life. They have a great deal of understanding and insight about your life and where you're headed, and they offer you all their best advice about how they think you ought to get there.
This seems like luck to you, and maybe it is -- the luck that results from all the right elements coming together and producing great results. They offer you advice, and you actually take it -- and you find that your life is better as a result. Your lover's perspective on the way things work is a big help to you; they help to clarify things for you about the way the world is and how you need to operate within it. The good benefits of your connection don't go in just one direction; they actually derive a lot of good things just from being around you.
