Be very careful about getting romantically involved with a friend in 2016. While the attraction between the two of you might be extraordinary, there will likely be a stretch of time where it's anything but easy to get this relationship off the ground. In fact, if you turn this into a sexual relationship at the wrong time, it just might prove to be disastrous.

The culprit is Mars, planet of action but also the planet of libido. Between May 27 and June 29 Mars will retrograde through your 11th House of Friends, Hopes, and Dreams. When Mars is retrograde, your powers of initiation are weak and your sex drive may also suffer. It is highly advisable to not begin a new sexual relationship when Mars is retrograde because if you do, once Mars turns direct, you might find yourself extremely dissatisfied. In your case, this will be especially true in the case of potentially turning a friend into a lover.
Wait until Mars is strong and direct again -- after June 29 -- before you think about taking things to the next level. You'll be glad you did.
The good stuff
If you're in a committed partnership, you and your mate can anticipate lovely harmony from June 17 - July 12 while love planet Venus tours your 7th House of Relationships. If single, aim to circulate more between April 29 and May 24 when Venus moves through your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure. Someone special might be closer than you think.
