If, when you met, you felt as if you've known each other before, that's probably because you have -- in a past life that's too long ago and deeply submerged in your subconscious minds to remember. But you were involved, and you had a wonderful effect on each other's lives. This person opened you up to some kind of great opportunity -- they helped you to better yourself and advance your life in some way.
In this life, you've come together again to reap more of the benefits of that old, lucky connection. Your lover brings their personal strengths once again to the relationship and helps you to connect to some very beneficial opportunities. They have some talents: with meeting influential people, perhaps, or handling money well, or just spotting great bargains at a garage sale. Whatever it is, you benefit from it, because they somehow lead you into opportunities you would never have found on your own. Your gratitude toward them is a real boost. So use this influence well; focus not only on what you both want in life, but on what you need as well, and try to bring those things into being through your own efforts and ingenuity.
