Love is in the air this summer, but is there such a thing as too many sparks flying?

Not to burst any lovestruck bubbles, but it’s possible that your new found ‘soulmate’ is actually just a temporary kinship of karma.

Here’s what the astrology experts at Psychic World (Online Psychic Chat) have to say.

To get to the bottom of things, we have to start from the top. A karmic relationship happens when someone is brought into our lives to mirror our darker qualities, based on unresolved lessons from a past life. 

Karmic relationships are often intense and challenging, with a side serving of all encompassing passion and drama. The purpose of a karmic relationship is to help individuals evolve spiritually, mentally and emotionally.

Lyndsey Shelley, Performance and Lifestyle coach, adds: “These relationships often involve repeating patterns, unresolved conflicts, and lessons that need to be learned. It’s often the case that if you leave a karmic relationship WITHOUT learning the lesson, you’ll potentially keep getting pulled back or be faced with a mirror of this relationship further down the line, hence why many people find themselves in the same old stories with failed relationships.”

Warning signs you’re headed for a karmic relationship

You might be on your way to a karmic relationship if you’re dating someone with an aura of bad karma. 

Certified dating and relationship expert, Dr Callisto Adams, adds: “Intense love, intense fights, and intense chemistry. You’re drawn to them immediately, and you seem to feel desperate if you imagine a life without them. You could be on your way to a karmic relationship if everything you experience with that person is intense, there’s no middle ground.”

Chris Pleines, expert at DatingScout says: “It’s important to remember that the goal is not to make the relationship work. The goal is to learn and grow from the experience. 

“Set boundaries. Limit how much time you spend with the other person, how much you share with them, and how much you let them affect your emotions. Focus on yourself. Spend time with loved ones, do things that make you happy, and work on your own personal growth.”

The star signs most prone to a karmic relationship

Leo and Libra

Leo and Libra, two of the charts most powerful and attention-seeking signs, are used to being the stars of the show. They understand the importance of giving each other praise, but neither are willing to play second fiddle –  leading to the demise of this relationship. They will often struggle to meet the others high expectations, and will eventually learn that compromise is a two-way street.

Aries and Virgo

Whilst the signs are opposing, the fire and earth elements are a celestial pairing of great chemistry. Something about this astrological duo instantly tells them they need to be together. However, the two signs can both be brash, blunt, and over-talk each other. They can end up making the other feel smaller and the relationship will humble both partners, and teach them there’s more than just being right.

Taurus and Scorpio

The Taurus and Scorpio together are a sensual pairing, but this can go too far with both sides being overly possessive. This will teach both signs what it’s like to have a jealous partner, mirroring their green eyes right back at them. The relationship will teach each person how controlling their partner can be toxic, and how to set healthy boundaries.
