My name is Anna. I am a woman born on april 3rd of 1986 at 1:30pm PST. My new Dragon boyfriend was born on april 13th or 1988 at 7:14 am PST.
I find that my boyfriend fits very well in my life immediately and that I feel comfortable considering a future with him because he is generous, kind, understanding, and a great leader and friend.
What are our elements and signs? How can I best navigate this relationship in consideration of these elements and zodiac signs?
What should I to work on in order to cultivate harmony and virtue in this and other types of relationships?
I would love to utilize your compatibility input. Thank you in advance!

It would take a full, 20 page ready to give a comprehensive answer to your question. What I can do is look at your charts and tell you the most important things I see.
As you know, your year signs are Tiger and Dragon, which is a high flying combination built for success. In Chinese Astronomy, the Dragon Constellation guards the Eastern sky and the Tiger the Western - powerful signs indeed. And that's a plus, because you each need a partner you can respect. You each have Rabbit for your month sign. This gentle sign adds balance to your strong, year signs. You both probably have strong, outer appearances, but inside your hearts are gentle and can be wounded easily. So go easy on each other!
The weakness in your relationship is found in your element mix. It's unbalanced, especially your partner's, the result being you don't complement each other. What you need to understand about him is he has great strengths but also significant vulnerability. Balance is actually more desirable. Your is unbalanced, too, in that you lack Metal, which is associated with determination and fighting spirit. This is unfortunate because he has no Metal in his chart. So who is going to fight to keep the relationship going through the difficult times we all experience? Also, you only have a low normal amount of Water and he only a little in his chart. Communications could also be a problem. You both will need to make an effort to let the other know your feelings and wishes, or you could drift apart or get into misunderstandings.
