Mon horoscope du jour

Vous serez plus réceptif aux attentions de votre entourage. Vous apprécierez leurs marques d'affection! Vous aurez besoin de vous amuser. Détendez-vous en compagnie de votre partenaire. Vous redonnerez ainsi un second souffle à votre relation qui s'essoufflait! Vous allez vivre la même situation frustrante au bureau. Sachez être philosophe et patient en attendant mieux! Vous risquez d'être plus émotif donc plus vulnérable. Mais rien de grave si vous dominez vos émotions!
