Match made in heaven?

“When Aries and Capricorn come together in a love match, they must work hard to maintain their mutual energy. Their approaches can seem almost opposite to one another — Aries is all about acting without bothering to consider where the action is directed or what it will attain, while Capricorn is all about judging whether (or how much) it will benefit them before they take action. Aries moves fast and, to Capricorn, at least, seems to risk it all. Capricorn abhors unnecessary risk. They move at a slower pace, working inexhaustibly toward well-defined goals (usually related to career or other forms of public advancement). Both partners always get where they’re going, only in different ways — and usually where they’re going is totally different, too!

Capricorn is generally rather quiet and unassuming while Aries is much louder and more flashy. They’re both very stubborn and think their way is best, so in order to work together, they have to agree to disagree. Their philosophies are very different: Aries looks for the shortcut while Capricorn wants to follow the rules, assuming they’re a tried-and-true path to success. How does this manifest itself in a romantic relationship? Aries is all about impetuous, passionate pursuit of the one they want, without stopping to think whether the one they’ve chosen is really the right one for them. Capricorn, on the other hand, likes to analyze how much a potential love partner will be able to help them advance in life, and will use that as the basis of their decision of whether or not to pursue the relationship. If these two can meet and get together, however, they can teach one another things they wouldn’t learn on their own.

Aries is ruled by the Planet Mars (Passion) and Capricorn is ruled by the Planet Saturn (Karma). These Planets often work against one another, just as Aries and Capricorn have to struggle to find common ground. These two can definitely help one another, however, especially on a project: Saturn has strong powers of perseverance, but Mars has the energy and drive it takes to get things done. These two Signs might make a better duo in the workplace than in the bedroom! Both partners tend to be resolute and neither gives up easily; if their energies are not channeled in positive ways, together these Planets may inflict cruelty, even violence on one another, or cause one another to repress their emotions. Aries must take care not to work against Capricorn, who, in turn, must try not to dampen Aries’s fiery spirit.

Aries is a Fire Sign and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. While Aries is dynamic, Capricorn is more grounded and practical. Capricorn’s approach is to ask themselves, ‘What good will this do as I work toward my main plan in life?’ while Aries simply sees what is desirable at the moment and goes after it with no set plan in mind.

Aries and Capricorn are both Cardinal Signs. Both partners are initiators, but they have such widely varying goals and interests that they work better when they each have a particular, well-defined role. Aries is the leader on the surface — they rush out to get things going and knock down any barriers in the way. But Capricorn is indirectly in charge: They’re always working steadily toward their goals. It’s important for both partners to understand that compromise is their key to success.

What’s the best aspect of the Aries-Capricorn relationship? They each bring unique qualities to their union. Once they can learn to allow each other to be themselves they can blend well to make a whole. Theirs is a challenging relationship, but if they can learn from each other it’s worth it! As with any relationship based in mutual love and respect, most obstacles can be overcome with sound communication and goodwill.” 🙂

Who I am

Summary
Laila, your responses indicate that you are a very friendly, warm, and calm individual. You use persuasion to influence people and do not make unnecessary demands upon them. If you are called upon to delegate both authority and details, you do so with ease. When you are dealing with an idea or project, you prefer to focus on its overall substance rather than on its specific details. Too much structure or too many rules is not appealing to you. Since you enjoy interacting with people, it follows that you are highly effective in activities involving them.

Your style of fast, lively expression is both engaging and effective. You are a fluent speaker who expresses thoughts quickly, optimistically, and persuasively.

You actively promote change and like to find new ways of reaching goals.

It has taken a lot of courage to get through this thing with him, and my fear, is that he’s never coming back. And the truth is, he just might not. And that thought just consumes me. And it scares me.

But I always know, God is going to see me through.

Independent

I’m a very independent girl and some people think I’m weird because of it but that doesn’t bother me. Just because I’m not afraid to stand up for what I believe inwhen everyone else is sitting down, that’s no reason to follow the crowd. Because maybe, just maybe, I’ll make someone’s life better because I wasn’t afraid.

Allergic to human emotions

Sometimes you just have to stop caring. You have to turn off all emotion and feeling to protect yourself from getting hurt. You have to stop caring what other people think of you and be yourself. Sometimes you have to hide it all, not let anyone know how you feel or what you think. You gotta put a smile on and pretend everything is fine even when it’s not. Sometimes that’s the only way to save yourself from a broken heart.

Dance of Life

There were two hearts who met in a dance. That moment was magical, there was a sweet song playing, there was harmony. And soon love in the air. They fell in love and they started building castles in their dreams. And promised forever with all certainty.

But somewhere in the midst of the fun, they got lost in the dance. Something went wrong, but they can never do anything. They were just drifting away, their fortress falling apart. There were so many questions but no one had an answer.

Then the music stopped, then there was silence.

When we truly love someone we give our best and let that person see the pureness of our intentions. But sometimes that person makes us cry and hurts us for the wrong reasons. That someone must have loved us but he has not loved us enough to make him stand for what he truly felt.

Now, we are faced with the seemingly impossible task of forgetting. We have burdened ourselves long enough. But we still can’t get out from this emotional trap. Let us remember that the more we try to forget someone we love the more painful letting go will become.

Sometimes we never have to take that person out in our hearts at all, for he will always be there no matter how hard we try to drive him away. It isn’t his presence that made this difficult but it is our stubbornness to accept our destiny that aligns forgetting is next to impossible.

We keep a cold face but deep in our hearts there still that lingering hope for a reconciliation. Somehow, we still believe that we can rekindle small embers and relight the fire that once burned in our hearts. This thought gives us hope but it also breeds the seeds of loneliness and despair.

The only way to forget is to accept and the only way to move on is to look ahead and let the footprints of the past be blown by the wind of time. Only then can our hearts find a partner in the dance of life and hopefully never get lost again.
