Your sexual attraction to one another has only been strengthened by this aspect, because it also intensifies the emotional bond between you, which runs quite deep. You have both experienced this depth of feeling from the beginning as a sensation of being very well understood. Your bond probably even felt effortless from the start, as did communicating in a physical way.
Old emotions from your lover's past -- even ones that may not have served them well for some time -- have found positive expression in this relationship. Basically, the two of you together can be quite creative on a mental or emotional level, and you help each other grow as individuals. Even your less admirable qualities can be transformed into loftier ones through this relationship. Issues of egotism or vanity are expressed in a more positive way, and vulnerabilities are faced and strengthened. These powerful changes haven't been confined simply to an individual or ego level, either; your lover could help you to achieve your highest ambitions in a career or artistic sphere. This aspect has given your relationship incredible staying power, especially in combination with other stabilizing aspects. The positive effects of this influence can lead to a long-term relationship if you let them.
