Here's Your Love Horoscope For August 26-28

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 26-28.

The weekend starts out a bit bumpy thanks to a square off between the Moon (emotions) in Gemini and a cluster of planets in Virgo for most of Friday. Under this influence, we might find that our emotional needs (or the needs of others) are in a conflict with getting what we want. And with Mars (action) in a tense aspect to Neptune (dreams), we may also be unsure of how to get it.

However, by Saturday the romantic vibe lightens up significantly thanks to a rare, but auspicious alignment between Venus (love) and Jupiter (optimism/abundance) in doting and devoted Virgo. With Venus and Jupiter’s help, if there's something we find that’s not quite right about our love life, we’ll find the clarity, faith, and ingenuity needed to turn things around. By Sunday, the Moon in Cancer’s showdown with transformative Pluto and radical Uranus helps us to write this new love story by pushing us to break free of the past.

Read below to find out what this weekend's stars means for your love life.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Expect to be busy this weekend as you and your boo are encouraged to get your list of errands down to zero. Laundry, cleaning, and trips to the store might not sound sexy, but they are reminders that as a team you can get anything done.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

What you want and what you feel you deserve doesn’t need to be mutually exclusive when it comes to love. What you get, however will depend on what you believe to be possible. Now’s the time to believe in a little magic.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

If you find yourself feeling extra emotional this weekend, know that this is the perfect time for a vent session between you and your partner as what comes out now could be healing for the both of you.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Can your head and heart align? If you allow your feelings and your intuition to inform your decisions — yes. Keep this in mind when it comes to romance this weekend as what you believe will be reflected back to you.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

When it comes to love, you don’t always have to be a team player, especially if the compromises you make in a relationship are at the expense of your self-worth. Sometimes, being a little selfish is the best thing for you.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Someone close to you may be trying to impose what they think you should do about your love life despite what you really want. Instead of trying to keep this person happy, remember the only person you need to answer to is you.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

A new romance could fizzle out just as quickly as it started, but don’t lose all hope. You could attract someone much better if you’re willing to heed your intuition. Attached? Carve out private time for the two of you.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

You may want to take a close friendship into more intimate territory but what think you want might not actually be what you get. Still all is not lost. Look to meet someone through a friend instead.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

You’re often generous to a fault, but is someone asking for more than you should give right now? Instead of rushing to the rescue (again), take a step back and evaluate if this relationship is worth the investment.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Love could be sweet for you if you’re willing to switch up your routine. A solo trip somewhere new or a spontaneous outing/activity with your darling could be just the lucky romantic break you need.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

You may feel like your heart is being pulled in two as one part of you just wants to have a little fun while the other part of you wants something deeper. Know that whichever direction you take, only the worthy need apply.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

An unpleasant conversation or issue from the past between you and your sweetheart may come rearing its ugly head this weekend. Instead pointing fingers at each other, work together to work things out.
