We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based Astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each week. This week's topic: your weekend love horoscope for August 12-14.
This weekend, love might not feel like the stuff fairytales are made of, and that's because Venus (attraction, pleasure, and relationship style) in Virgo, won't be seeing eye to eye with Saturn (reality, responsibility) in Sagittarius nor Neptune (illusion) in Pisces. In plain terms, this means that when it comes to love and relationships we will have to cut through the BS if we want to be happy. While the tension between these three planets won't create the kind of warm and fuzzy feeling we may be after, the energy will be good for getting serious and getting clear about what we want (and don't want) from love, which can save us a lot of trouble and heartache down the road. Instead of feeling disappointed by something or someone we're not getting romantically, this weekend is good for figuring out how we can work to get what/who we want, but only better.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars means for your love life.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook each Monday at 4 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
When it comes to love, your heart seems to say one thing and your head is saying another. Instead of being caught between the two, take a breath and allow your intuition to be what guides you.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
If someone doesn't live up to their hype this weekend, don't be too disappointed. You're in the mood for love that's deep, lasting, and solid; if this person can't cut it, it's because someone better is coming.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You're reminded that love is reciprocal. If you've been giving up too much for the sake of keeping your lover happy, consider what you're getting (if anything) in return. Your heart needs attention too.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
If there's something that's not working in your love life, this weekend you may need to come to terms with not only what doesn't work, but also with what you will need to do to fix it. Take the pragmatic approach.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Oftentimes, our love life is a reflection of how we see ourselves. If you've been finding your love life lacking, consider where you may need give more to yourself as you will magnetize what you believe you should have.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
If you find yourself rushing in to fix or save someone out of a desire to be needed, take a step back. Yes, love should be unconditional but it shouldn't be at the cost of your security or sanity.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You may be feeling the love, but is the object of your affections on the same page? If you find yourself in a "where is this going" kind of place, pay attention to the facts and their actions.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Before you rush head first into a new romance, think about whether or not this person is in alignment with your values. Come to think of it, what are your values? You may need to make some updates.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Has your need for practicality been getting in the way of your need for tenderness? The two don't need to be mutually exclusive, Sag. It really boils down to what you think you deserve.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
As a steadfast earth sign, you tend to know what you like and often prefer to stick to it. Though now when it comes to love, you'll need to be open to a new possibility. Yes, accept what is but also what could be.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You're incredibly hot this weekend, which means you'll be attracting admirers like flies to honey. But before you lower your drawbridge, ask yourself if you can seriously see them as a part of your future.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
There may be a discrepancy between what you want from love and what you're actually getting but that's because you may need to send the Universe a signal (goodbye, ex) that you're ready for the real deal.
