Sometimes you have to go through the trenches together! If you have this kind of connection, then you are blessed indeed. If not, you may feel a little bit more of an ache than usual.
At long last, it’s possible that a friend’s advice about your love life will begin to make sense. Mercury turns direct in your friendship sector on Wednesday and, although you might not have wanted to hear your pal’s practical words of wisdom, suddenly they could begin to ring true.
