Whether or not you’re always down to admit it, physical connections are just as important as emotional ones–although they’re often the hardest to ask for. Whether you’re looking for the sexual companionship that comes with kissing (or more), there’s also platonic contact that can be just as important. Hugs, cuddles, or just an arm around your shoulder can give you the warm fuzzies that’ll carry you for the rest of your day. Some of us are really struggling right now and could use a hug. If you’re one of these four zodiac signs, you’re craving a physical connection this week.

Or maybe you’re getting a lot of platonic physical attention but nothing from a romantic partner. If this is really sticking with you this week, it’s time to figure out why and take the steps to solve it.
