    Hi,

    I'm a bit confused with the phrase. It's the Tarot reading. The text:

    Ce qui nous unit est indépendant de notre volonté, et nous n'arrivons pas à concrétiser.

    My attempt:

    ..., we don't manage to materialize/specify/?.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you, Punky Zoé, for your reply!
    Do you mean:
    we can't make it real?:confused:

    If 'manage' can be used, it would fit better to "arriver".

    What do you think about:

    ... we failed to materialize/specify.
