Your future direction is closely tied to your committed, long-term relationships. This may mean that you'll end up with a lover in the long term who actually helps you reach your personal goals in a big way -- perhaps they'll pave the way for your career, or take a direct role in your higher education. Somehow, your ambitions will not end up being solely your own; you'll work toward them with a partner, someone who loves you and is committed to you and to your personal growth.
This could be a really blissful state -- you'll never have to choose between love and career, for starters -- but do make sure that the goals you're moving toward are really your own, especially if you end up committing in love to someone who is older, wiser or more educated than you are. It's easy to get into love affairs that depend on that kind of power dynamic, where your sweetie is ahead of you on some level and acts as a guide or mentor; but there's also a lot to be said for following your own path, even if at times the going is slow and unsteady. Just try to find the balance between your partnership and your own path into your future.
