Aries

From the first day of summer through mid-July, Venus the goddess of love will sweetly lure you out into the romantic and fiery summer nights as she holds court in Leo – your sector of true love.

An old pal may even introduce you to that special someone or perhaps will turn out to be that someone? Quality time with good friends is never a bad idea and this summer, it looks like love is in the mixing.
