Love, Zodiac

Expressing love comes easier today, zodiac signs!

Your daily love horoscope is in!

It's not often that we discuss the sign of Uranus, which happens to be in Aries.

Uranus is a sign that pushes through change, and when met with the sign of the Ram, you might have felt that push.

(Let's not forget, this is Mercury retrograde season, too!)

If you've felt crammed for time, and less focused on your relationships this week, this could be the reason why.

Perhaps logically you knew you needed more time together, but lately, there's so much to get done
