Your Love Horoscope For This Weekend

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 to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each week. This week's topic: your weekend love horoscope for August 19-21.

Thanks to an opposition (contrast) this weekend between the Moon (emotions) in dreamy Pisces and Venus (love) in practical Virgo, we may feel pulled between wanting to throw ourselves head over heels into a love and wanting to keep our wits about us. While we most certainly won’t be able to avoid love or our feelings this weekend, we can certainly be smart in how we handle both. When the Moon moves into bold and confident Aries by Saturday evening we should have a clearer idea about the direction we should take.

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)

Don't be surprised if you prefer to keep it low key on Friday, as you'll be more in the "me time" mood than "we time" one. However, by Saturday you should be all systems go. If you're feelin' someone, let them know!

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Sometimes the best places to meet someone new are in spaces where you're already out and about having fun. This week fun could look like a class, lecture, film, or a game night kind of event. Chat someone up.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Feeling a little burned out? This is definitely one of those weekends where date night works best as a Netflix and Chill kind of kind of night. Single? Saturday night is great or a date or hitting the town.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

All signs point to go this weekend, as in go ahead, get out of town. If love is what you’re after, traveling either locally or abroad could mark the entrance of someone special in your life or bring some spice to what you already have.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Someone may be giving you the warm and fuzzies this weekend, but if a deeper connection is what you’re looking for, now is not the time to settle for anything less. Any investment you’re willing to put in, you should get back.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Your attractive power is amplified this weekend which should leave you with no shortage of fans now. Though if you’re looking for more than a fling, you may need to make sure their actions go beyond sweet nothings.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

If there’s something you’ve been wanting to get off your chest when it comes to you and your boo, this weekend is the perfect time to have a heart to heart. Single? A love connection could be a yoga mat away.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

You’re in the mood for love and if there was ever a time for one of those dreamy, weekend escapes with your babe, this is it. Single? Romance could carry a soulmate or fated vibe.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

You might find yourself in your feels about a certain someone this weekend, but this would be a good time to ask yourself if this person 1) brings out the best in you and 2) is the best match for the person you’re becoming?

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Instead of wasting this weekend pining over love lost or what/who you think you might be missing out on; pull yourself together, remember who’s boss, and go flirt with a sexy stranger or two.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Money could be a source of agitation for you and your love this weekend. However, instead of working against each other, look to ways to come up with a better financial plan or save for the long term.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

You have the kind of personal magnetism that can melt just about anyone into putty, though while you’re out this weekend taking names and capturing hearts, vet carefully as only the dedicated need apply.
