Chapter 1: Bonds For Energy, Fun and Lasting Impressions


        This section is based on the idea that there are three basic needs in every relationship:


        Interest, energy and stimulation.


        Enjoyment, abundance, expansion of awareness/possibilities and sense of contentment or happiness.


        Commitment, consistency, teaching each other, sharing values or reaffirming/confirming something essential in each other.


        The sort between your charts is for eleven separate aspects that define energy, fun and lasting impressions between you. Most strong relationships have at least four to six of these aspects between their charts.



Edwards's Sun Conj Kerry's Moon:


        Core Themes: A Sun/Moon conjunction between your charts is an exceptionally strong bonding aspect. All conjunctions (planets in the same or near numerical degrees) blend the individual planet's energies into one larger whole. Because the Sun and Moon are natural opposites or a male/female pair, you will feel a resonance and an easy blending in many ways with this person. You could feel more complete or better understood more easily and often without even needing to speak. There is great opportunity to complement each other. The more exact the aspect is mathematically, the more pronounced the effect, which is like a deep soul connection. This connection can alleviate many of the conflicting aspects between your charts. You are likely to feel that you've known each other for a long time, or that you've known each other before, even though you just recently met. There is an unspoken understanding since you each reflect or complement a strong and similar part of the other's nature or personality. Although the blending of the Sun/Moon produces a strong bond it can also mean that one of you (more likely the Moon person) gives in too readily to the demands of the other (more likely the Sun person). It seems natural and easy to give to each other. This needn't be negative and can simply indicate that you lend each other support to progress, develop and grow.


        Give and take (that is reciprocity) is accomplished more easily with this aspect between your charts. One of you picks up the conversation, the action, and the slack, where the other has left off. You're probably often on the same wavelength and you understand each other exceptionally well. In fact, you may understand or reflect each other so thoroughly that it can become a source of irritation. You'll observe similar habits and idiosyncrasies in your business partner or associate that you yourself possess. In many instances, this can be an asset in that you are likely to be allies and partner up to support and develop projects. You have similar sensibilities that will allow you to work well together at the same project or task. However, unless you share the limelight, and acknowledge each other's talents, an inherent sensitivity will turn to resentment and can cause trouble between you. Counteract this tendency with fair play and giving credit where it's due. The intent of this aspect is a smooth and comfortable understanding and way of relating.


Edwards's Moon Conj Kerry's Mars:


        Core Themes: This aspect generates quick responses toward each other, which could be startling but at the same time stimulating. You'll find you want to know more about what makes this person tick, since they arouse your interest. The aspect encourages alertness to behavioral nuances and the shifting moods in each of you. Because there is immediacy to this aspect there is also potential volatility. Feelings can be hurt or offense easily taken. There is typically a hyper awareness of the other's sensibilities or vulnerabilities. Because this aspect is geared toward stimulating feelings, you need to learn to listen to each other and compromise. Ignoring the emotions that you generate in each other won't serve you well in the long run. There will be no problem in being direct about matters of mutual concern. However, saying things in anger or going over the top one too many times will eventually damage the relationship you want to build or maintain. Some sparring is part of this aspect and occasion for healthy, even heated debate is normal. But be careful of harshness or impatience and causing permanent damage to the relationship.


        You will either be allies or adversaries with this aspect. Either way, you won't be able to ignore each other. Each of you is locked in on an emotional basis to what the other is up to. No matter what, try to fight fair, stay on the issues and refuse to make personal attacks. Striving for win-win outcome to any conflicts that arise will alleviate the negativity and imbalance of one person winning and the other losing. Guard against quick responses that hit below the belt or show a lack of respect for the other. Because this pattern is prone to conflict it is even more important that you learn to confront each other about problems or irritations in diplomatic ways as soon as they occur. Avoid stuffing anger or holding it in, address the problem as soon as possible and you'll avoid an unpleasant blowup later. If you find that you are losing your temper too often, you may need professional help to learn conflict management. Always leave room for the other person to save face.


Edwards's Sun Opp Kerry's Asc.:


        Core Themes: This aspect challenges each of your normal ways of expressing your personality and character. The essence of this aspect asks you to allow each other to be who you are and express yourselves freely, without undue interference from the other. At the same time, the aspect will challenge your ability to tolerance different ways of expressing and approaching life situations.


        Your interaction will, at times, be uncomfortable because of an initial inability to understand where the other is coming from on an important issue. It will take a greater measure of tolerance and respect for differences before you attain a working harmony in this association. Alleviate the potential challenges by really listening to your colleague, appreciating who this person is and what he or she is trying to accomplish. You may discover something you didn't know before. Frequently, you will be going in different, even opposing directions. There is no law of interaction that says you must always approach things in only one particular way.


Kerry's Moon Trine Edwards's Saturn:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to build strong, lasting foundations and to develop and maintain emotional and material security. Resolving issues and finding solutions together will become a core talent. This aspect contributes to relationship longevity and significance because the inclination to build a solid relationship is inherent in the combination.


        Mutual support for and commitment to the rules to which you've agreed for your relationship will be easier to maintain and will be valuable to both of you. There is a natural tolerance for the inevitable problems of life and a decided lack of whining. Just be sure that you don't make more problems for yourselves because you're so good at dealing with them or take on more responsibility than you should. Others will find you a dependable pair and will look up to you and respect you. It would be easy for you, as a team, to take a leadership role of some kind in the community, since organization, reliability and planning are natural talents for you. There is a greater chance of permanence for all your endeavors together because of the time, care and attention you put into them. With your skills of maintenance and self-improvement you will accomplish much and ensure the longevity of your relationship.


Edwards's Sun Conj Kerry's Saturn:


        Core Themes: You have come together to produce something lasting and creative such as a valuable community project or service, a business or product. Your life together has a sobering quality that will demand responsibility and commitment on some important level. Time and timing will also be a core theme in your relationship. Security, mutual respect and integrity are values demanding your attention and evolvement within this relationship.


        There is an intrinsic level of commitment that becomes self-evident over the course of your relationship with each other and it may have been there right from the start. These feelings of an obligation or something you owe to the other are what bind you to your business partner on a deep level. Your promises to each other will not be easily broken and often last a lifetime. If there is a change, you will each feel the seriousness of the breach and the important place of the relationship in your life. Development of responsibility, trust and a foundation of strength on an inner or outer level will be the harvest of your association. At times, you will feel tested in your character and you'll realize that you're meant to learn an important lesson together. This energy exchange is positive for a solid business or legal commitment, provided trust and mutual respect are honored.


Kerry's Sun Sextile Edwards's Saturn:


        Core Themes: This aspect requires that you work on developing form and structure in your relationship and the projects of your choice. Maturing and elaborating your specific priorities for a successful life are themes that the two of you will be evolving. Expect initiation into higher levels of functioning. This is a growth aspect. The intent of this pattern is for longevity and solidity. To the extent that you can create this within your relationship, you will have fulfilled the purpose of the aspect.


        From a business standpoint, you share qualities of commitment, credibility and the willingness to deliver quality. Accepting and handling responsibilities of various kinds will be a normal, natural part of your association. In fact, you are likely to seek challenges. There is a desire for order and accomplishment in anything you pursue together. As a team, you enjoy structuring, leading and organizing. Others see you as achievement oriented and effective at what you create together. As business partners, you require a certain level of commitment and you are likely to want a strong foundation on which to build a project. Your pace leans toward the conservative, seeking value rather than quantity.


Kerry's Mars Conj Edwards's Jupiter:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is expansion of knowledge and aptitude through a variety of learning adventures including writing, publishing, promotion, sales, sports or religion. The end result is to attain wisdom and a greater capacity for self-expression - "to be the best you can be". The impulse is for improvement and breaking previous records or boundaries in whatever field you choose.


        As a business team, you are more readily able to expand and promote your ideas, goals and projects. You'll look for challenges and ways in which you can prove your abilities and advance. There is courage in this aspect to try new things and to expand further and wider within an already established system or for a brand-new project. Your blended energy makes more possibilities and opens previously closed doors. Because your image together is alive and exuberant, others will be stimulated by your enthusiasm, and you will gather supporters. People will say you are lucky, but it is your positive energy that creates opportunities for you and allows you to take risks for yourselves and to improve your circumstances, those of others and your business goals.


Edwards's Mars Sextile Kerry's Jupiter:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is expansion of knowledge and aptitude through a variety of learning adventures including writing, publishing, promotion, sales, sports or religion. The end result is to attain wisdom and a greater capacity for self-expression - "to be the best you can be". The impulse is for improvement and breaking previous records or boundaries in whatever field you choose.


        You are together to motivate, expand and develop your project, to take charge and lead yourselves and others into new territories of experience in your business goals - mentally or even spiritually. You can spread optimism according to your means and you may be philanthropic. There's great joy, good will and possibility in this combination and, as partners, the two of you will continually see the silver lining in any black clouds that drift your way. In a business partnership, benefit and opportunity comes to you from this association. Whatever project you are working on, the impetus is to expand its influence and develop connections to further promote and publicize the product or service. It is your positive attitude that will earn the support of others. Don't make the mistake of resting on your laurels. Be sure to maintain the quality of your product or service.


Chapter 2: Emotions and Communication


        The following aspects detail the quality of your emotional connection, your basic level of comfort and your ease or difficulty in communicating, and discussing emotions and simply understanding where each of you is coming from. Additionally, these aspects help describe how you reason together and resolve issues or problems.



Both Moon signs are in Gemini:


        Core Themes: Similar emotional needs are indicated, as are, to some extent, comparable dispositions. Daily habits can coincide, making it easier to share the same physical spaces for long periods of time. In matters of timing, it is likely that you will have similar understandings and be more in agreement than not. The intent of this aspect is to find your way to emotional understanding and harmony and to respect the feelings of the other person.


        You are blessed with a similar overall emotional style and disposition, which makes understanding each other and working together easier. You share some of the same rhythms and personal habits or predilections that make daily contact more comfortable. Timing will not be as much an issue, in that you can more easily and quickly respond to each other's levels of excitement or emotional energy and empathize with each other's disappointments. You will feel met by the other because you're very much on the same wavelength. Environments that comfort and support you are more often similar than not, for your associate or business partner. Social connections and the types of people you choose to interact with tend to be of the same general type. And you will appreciate the fact that you share many interests and are able to enjoy numerous activities together. This is not to say that at times you won't be totally perplexed by each other's reactions because, of course, there are other factors in each of your personalities that must be considered.


Kerry's Mercury Opp Edwards's Mercury:


        Core Themes: Outlook, perspective or styles of problem solving, even communicating, are the core of this aspect.  This combination is more challenging because your mode of thinking and communicating tends to be quite different. The intent of this energy combination is to resolve issues of communication, speaking, reasoning etc., so that you can reach solutions and conclusions in creative and original ways.


        Although you are associates or business partners, there are times when one of you will have great difficulty in figuring out where the other is coming from and what she or he is trying to tell you. Your styles of communication can be very different. The premise upon which you base your reasoning or the logic you use will often perplex your partner. Especially if you have to decide on projects or activities together, your differences can quickly become an issue between you. Talking things through slowly, step by step, will help each of you to understand how the other arrived at his or her opinion or conclusion. This will take patience but in the end will be worth it. What's more, by taking the time to really understand how your partner is thinking, you can not only learn something important about your partner but also get a different perspective yourself. And you will learn how your communication affects others, since your partner is probably not the only one who can't always understand what you're trying to say or figure out your logic. Your interaction will allow you to fine-tune your own thought processes and become more adept and flexible in the ways you communicate with others. This will be doubly useful if you are in a business that requires writing, speaking or regularly communicating with others.


Chapter 3: Fulfilling Each Other's Relationship Needs


        These aspects explain how you meet each other's needs in important business or friendship partnerships. These aspects are based on what your natal chart describes that you're looking for in any major one-on-one relationship interaction.



Edwards's Mercury Opp Kerry's 7th house ruler, Mercury:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to help you discriminate among the voluminous mass of information that you come in contact with or you seek out. It's worth remembering that sometimes what sounds intelligent may in reality be hogwash. This aspect liberates you to separate the wheat from the chaff, the essential, from the info not worth your time or attention.


        Communication, sociability and a keen awareness of your environment will be key elements and important features of your business relationship. Use these skills to best effect and make your business projects sparkle. One of the pitfalls of these energies is getting overloaded from one too many events or too much people contact within a short span of time. Over-scheduling yourselves individually or as a team can bring about unwanted stress and irritation. Although the tendency is to reach out and cover all possibilities, the reality is that this strategy will tax your personal and business resources. Instead, refine your contacts to those that will likely yield you a bigger return. In other words, make more informed choices based on some researched facts and, as they say, "do the math". Your quick and ready wit will make inevitable chores much lighter.


Edwards's Venus Trine Kerry's 7th house ruler, Mercury:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to help you discover each other's needs in the context of your relationship through open communication and making the necessary adjustments for harmony. This aspect also teaches the importance of give and take and compromise.


        You have the potential to have a fair and cooperative business partnership. Of course you want cooperation to continue. At the same time, be sure that things are fair and that you're comfortable with your contribution to the relationship and how it's received by your partner. It's vital that responsibilities and kudos are equally shared.  Certainly during the course of your relationship there will, at times, be breaches in consideration and mindfulness of each other's needs and roles within the partnership At that point, you'll have to discuss what's happening and compensate or compromise until you've reached a balance with each other once more. Social invitations seem abundant, and connecting with others, how much or how little, will be an issue for the two of you to balance among your other duties.


Edwards's 7th house cusp Conj Kerry's 7th house ruler, Mercury:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to refine the art of communication and interpersonal dynamics within the framework of a close relationship. The aspect encourages the free exchange and sharing of information with others.


        In general, the quality or way you communicate and what you talk about could very well be the dominant forces in your business collaboration. To others, you can be known as great and witty conversationalists and there's bound to be a lot of banter back and forth. Or, perhaps, one of you is a writer or in a communications field. All aspects of language, learning, curiosity, making connections and partaking of a variety of social and mental experiences will be highlighted when you are together. These points of connection can form the strength of your business relationship. In addition, each of you finds some relationship need met in the personality of the business partner. This recognition becomes the basis and willingness to share time together and collaborate on projects. Your mode of communication helps each of you to reinforce who you are and the why's and wherefore's of the goals you are pursuing.


Kerry's Sun Sextile Edwards's 7th house ruler, Saturn:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to reinforce your certainty of purpose by testing the rules you live by, how much you are willing to compromise and for what. Timing and deliberate step-by-step development of goals will be to your advantage.


        You have an important task to execute together, which may not be apparent immediately. It may take some time to develop. But there is a seriousness of purpose that you will both feel, even when you first meet. You will be unable to take each other for granted and, in fact, will find that you respect each other's competence. Although you feel the importance of the connection, you will have challenges and tests that will sometimes be daunting. These tests will determine whether it is possible for the two of you to forge a longer-term business relationship together. Some of your issues are trust, respect, commitment and integrity. Another likely issue is one of time. One or both of you could already be over-committed in another work project. You may have to wait to make contact or negotiate a business contract together. However, doing business together is strongly indicated, since you are both ambitious and want to progress and advance in your careers. A rift can take place if the two of you cannot agree on principles that are essential to one or the other. If you succeed in forging a business relationship, others will tend to look up to you and respect your character and how you conduct yourselves in life and work.


Kerry's Moon Trine Edwards's 7th house ruler, Saturn:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to remind you of the preciousness of life and how important it is to respect, honor and treat with care whatever enters your circle of life. The steady progression and development of the past into the present has a strong effect.


        There's something serious that you recognize in each other from the start. If you plan on being in business together, the commitment has to be there and it has to be solid. This aspect is a kind of no-nonsense pattern, and a frivolously made agreement won't fly. You may also feel a certain amount of protectiveness toward each other or the projects you are involved with. These protective urges can indicate that your commitment to each other or your endeavors are solid and meaningful. Making contracts or promises with each other seems natural and feels right. Your relationship will bring out core and essential issues for both of you and induce you to realize the factors and elements that make up the standards you maintain for your life. Security, integrity and trust must be honored in your relationship in order for it to endure and develop in a healthy way. You'll have some obstacles to overcome but in doing so, and if you are successful in finding solutions, you will forge a stronger relationship.


Kerry's Saturn Trine Edwards's 7th house ruler, Saturn:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to encourage you to be methodical and to carefully construct a solid foundation on which to build success and achieve mastery. You will be challenged to overcome obstacles and minimize negativity.


        In your early interactions, your seriousness of purpose will be stimulated. You are both aware of the importance of a strong foundation and the detriment of a lack of one. If you choose to pool your expertise and engage in a business relationship together, you will be challenged on your sense of timing as well as on your ability to perfect your techniques and talents and reach a level of outstanding excellence. Neither of you wants to be second best, so you're willing to work to reach the top position. Recognition and achievement will always be integral within your business partnership. As you craft your style and develop your product or service, always be sure to give credit where credit is due. Life will bring its share of obstacles and disappointments with these patterns, but if you support each other during those times, your relationship will be stronger. Not only will you have endured your trials, you will have overcome them together. If this is the case, the bond of your business relationship is most likely to last.


Kerry's 7th house cusp Trine Edwards's 7th house ruler, Saturn:


        Core Themes: The intent of this aspect is to reinforce and reaffirm the principles that guide you in your relationships and attitudes and to teach you when to compromise and when to hold firm.


        You are likely to discover that you share an adherence to the same codes of conduct and that your priorities agree. If this is true, then you can pursue them in a committed way in a business partnership.  One of you is likely to be more outgoing and can therefore easily be the one to meet the public while the other takes care of the organizational part of the business. In any case, you will stimulate each other to build the best mousetrap in your field. Any conflicts you have will center on the "right" or "wrong" way to do something. So, refrain from being rigid or always needing to be right. There really is no "one way" to do anything. If something is vital to your sense of self-esteem, then by all means stick with it but don't expect or pressure your partner to feel the same way. Respect your differences in approach, behavior and habit. Whatever happens, you will stir ethical questioning in each other and cause yourselves to review the rules you've lived by in the past, the ones you were taught, and the one's you've applied and the ones you intend to use in the future.


Chapter 4: Your Closest Contacts, Your Strongest Themes


        This section interprets the closest connections between your charts. The wisdom of this section says that the closest aspects explain the major or central themes of your relationship and the reason you have come together. The nature of these aspects will also define the main activities, interests and patterns that affect your relationship life together.


        Notice that, in this section, each paragraph contains both the easier expression of energies and the more challenging ones. Both interpretations are included because these close connections pertain to the central learning curve of your relationship. Based on the premise that the more exact the connection (also the closest energetic contact) between your pair of planets, the more psychologically significant the aspect will be for each of you. This means that you are likely to be strongly influenced by each other in the areas described. Because of this, it will be useful to consider both the easier and more challenging interpretations even though you lead with one of them. You will, from time to time and in various circumstances, probably exhibit some elements of each interpretation, both the easier expressions as well as the more challenging ones. Another thing - it's possible with both types of aspects that you will have the same challenges but simply respond or react to them in different ways. The goal is to rise to the best possible expression of each combination. This is the learning curve and this bestows the necessary wisdom to develop your relationship.



Edwards's Moon Trine Kerry's MC (easier aspect):


        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme concerns the quality of your emotional responses and your caring and sincerity, particularly in the context and environment of home, family and career aspirations.


        Easier aspects: You appear to have a knack for connecting with others, and people respond to you because of a natural sincerity you transmit. No matter what your position in life, you manage to remain approachable and concerned for the feelings of others, your employees or your clients. If someone is in need, you will seek a way to help resolve the issue. Caring for others and treating people like family come first in your approach to life. Keep in mind that you can go overboard and be too generous with your time and resources and others can take advantage of you. Make sure you keep a balance that meets the needs of your business or company as well as the emotional needs of the people involved. Your special gift however, is the quality of your responsiveness and catering to the customers who use your products or services. If you remember (and it is likely you will) that clients are responsible for your company's success, you will prosper. Family and career needs are equally important to you and you are ones who seem to be able to mange and balance both.


        Challenging aspects: You will need to work on understanding your different styles of communication. At times, your inability to make sense of each other's ideas or explanations can be quite frustrating. Patience is a quality that will come in handy as you seek to make yourselves understood, and learning to be flexible in the way you communicate will eventually get your message across. Because you enjoy many different experiences, sometimes you will overschedule yourselves and create frustration because of conflicting interests and appointments. Information junkies that you can be, you'll sometimes overwhelm yourselves with the sheer volume of facts you gather. Slow down, breathe, and you'll be better able to synthesize and understand the information at hand. There will certainly be times when you will need to agree to disagree.


Edwards's Mars Sextile Kerry's Jupiter (easier aspect):


        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme is to challenge yourselves and take risks based on your ideals and dreams. Expanding and stretching previous boundaries through education, travel and sports are other expressions.


        Easier aspects: By all accounts, you appear to have the golden touch. This is obviously very useful in your business dealings. Either it's the way you present things, in a philosophical, easygoing or wise manner or the way that your energy engages others to believe and support you. All this may seem easy to you and you may be prone to take it for granted. But resting on your laurels could make you lazy and even have you feel entitled. That would be a mistake. Keep the energy you share together enthusiastic and positively motivated. You easily encourage others to take greater risks for themselves and are an inspiration to those who want to excel. Generosity and a willingness to lend a hand characterize your business associations and dealings. Protect this trust you receive from others. You will seek to learn, travel and, in general, make the most of your opportunities. Sports activity or sponsorship of some kind could be a way you support the community at large.


        Challenging aspects: In your enthusiasm, you can be excessive and prone to exaggerated words and actions. Although many opportunities will come your way, you may not recognize them or you may choose unwisely. At times, pushing the envelope means you're willing to go further than most, even "out on a limb". This common energy you share willingly takes risks and takes chances, but remember to analyze the potential consequences first. At other times, you can alienate clients or business associates with your bravado, "shooting from the hip," and  "know it all" attitude. Through trial and error, you will understand just how far you can go in various situations. Curb exaggeration and simply focus on being the best you can be. In important decisions, take time to consider all the facts before you commit yourselves. And then, keep your promises.


Kerry's Venus Opp Edwards's Venus (challenging aspect):


        Core Themes: If this is the most exact aspect between your charts, your main relationship theme is creating smoothness and harmony in your relationships through cooperation, compromise and negotiation. The importance of partnership is obvious and valuable to both of you.


        Challenging aspects: Although your values may differ markedly, you are both intent on maintaining harmony in your business relationship. Getting out of balance from time to time seems more likely so guard against letting things slide just because it seems easier in the moment. Use your disagreements in a group setting as checks and balances and to troubleshoot important projects. It's quite possible that you will borrow bits and pieces of each other's ideas in the final analysis. Your preference for the finer things in life means that, at times, you spend too freely and create budgeting problems for your business concerns. Substance is a more important than the packaging ultimately. Although of course, it's great to have both.


        Easier aspects: The most obvious and important element in your partnership is that each of you prizes the valuable contributions of the other. It's easy for you give credit when it is due and acknowledge your partner's skills. In important business matters, you share the same values most of time which makes being part of a team easy-going. It also means that making critical decisions is easier because you are in agreement. You are both committed to cooperation and negotiation to accomplish your goals and to service your clients or customers. You will be seen as having class and good taste because of the way you conduct yourselves in business. Taking the high road and maintaining the good quality of all your interpersonal relationships will reap you valuable rewards, in the short and long term. Once you've established a mutually supportive situation in your business, it's natural for you to be supportive within your community.

        Core Themes: If this is your most exact aspect, the major theme of your relationship concerns your expression of willpower, your heart and creativity, your life perspective and how you use these to reach your goals. The roles of ego, loyalty, and your place or position in life are other features of this combination.


        Challenging aspects: Often there is a clash of wills, you seek to go about life in dissimilar ways, or you want to handle issues in ways that your partner cannot agree with. Get to the core of your reasons for wanting to pursue a particular method and, in sharing your reasons, cooperation can more easily be gained. As long as you respect each other's methods for achieving admiration, respect and recognition in life, you will be fine. Still, at times, you may not understand how your business partner or associate wants to be recognized and you could fail to give what he or she needs in your teamwork together. With adequate discussion of what is meaningful to each of you and what is intolerable, these misunderstandings can be corrected. If differences cannot be negotiated, you may part ways. Just don't burn your bridges.


        Easier aspects: You will experience a general harmony in life processes and expressions when pursuing business projects and in your primary business goals. Your personalities are likely to have some strong similarities that will lend support for your most important enterprises, and you are likely to support each other's enthusiasm. It will be easy, most of the time, to give your business partner the strokes or recognition needed to keep doing their personal best both in terms of your relationship and in developing mutual projects. Both of you have an intuitive understanding of what is needed in order to shine and be noticed and take the lead in areas integral to your business needs.
