A friend may play a role in romance in the weeks ahead. Between Tuesday and April 19, love and socializing will blend as your Venus ruler travels through Pisces. You’ll be naturally drawn to friends who are in-tune with your heart and groups that support your personal growth, either of which may bring a potential paramour into your life. And with Mercury turning direct on Thursday, social activities will flow more smoothly. Friday is an excellent time for a date! This weekend, Mars traveling into Gemini (through May 14) will trigger your determination to improve your finances, but may also prompt a spending spree.
