A beautiful start to a new romance in which you will experience understanding, harmony and deep love between two souls – together you will reach your goals. The seed has blossomed into a tree of appreciation. Good solid ideas are passing between two people. Kindness and thoughtfulness will bind your two hearts together – the feeling of being simultaneously very special to one another, rather than just equal. Expect a surprise.
You are a compassionate, caring person – you understand the healing powers of love and the importance of relating with others. There is a spiritual dimension to your passion – a passionate drive toward spiritual expression. Your conscious and subconscious dimensions now work together. You will experience emotional balance and fulfillment – the capacity to give love as well as to receive love in equal proportion as what “appeared” to be opposition is now reconciled.
The beginning of a new relationship – a love affair which will unite your separate qualities and abilities through love, to produce something in your lives beyond what either of you could have achieved alone. Love gives meaning to the sexual drive that leads us to it. Once you unite your action and movement with your emotional sensitivity and an appreciation of experience – you give your life value. You will find success once you have linked your spiritual grounding to your technical ability and explorations.
Two is the number of LOVE – it is the fundamental condition of love. Love is inconceivable without the Lover and the Loved – without ME and YOU – without One and the Other. “God is Love; and he who abides in Love abides in God and God abides in him.” (I John 4:16) Wisdom and power – without love is deprived of all worth.
The entrance of “other” at the emotional level. Recognition of choice, of alternatives – then the action in relation to that choice. Sex, passion, love and proposals – engagement, marriage and partnership. Harmony of opposites. One-to-one relationships. Recognition of talent as an aspect of the self, yet bigger than self. A relationship develops – one person with another.
