You might have felt like soul mates early on in your relationship, but don't allow this powerful feeling to confuse you. The bond between you is certainly be strong, but it is complicated by projections you both make on each other. Somehow, your individuality is at stake.
Your lover looks at you and, on an unconscious level, they see everything they want for themselves -- a strong sense of self, a sense of direction in life, a well-defined goal or path. It's a wonderful thing to inspire your partner, but not if it leads to intense disappointment when reality comes crashing in -- you're actually just a human being, like they are, with similar insecurities and weaknesses. Furthermore, there could be a deep and confusing conflict in your relationship that involves your independence as individuals pitted against the sway of the relationship itself -- in other words, your need to maintain your independence versus your mutual need to unite as a team. Because there is such a deep and intense emotional bond between you, you must take steps to protect yourselves. One way is to make sure you never move to the next stage of the relationship too quickly; be sure you know exactly what the stakes are. With eyes wide open, and good communication, this relationship could become stronger over time with an even more positive bond.
