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 Sept. 16-18.
This weekend, passions run high as an emotional Lunar Eclipse in Pisces takes place on Friday afternoon. Under the influence of this hot and heavy Full Moon, part of our mission will be to release or drastically change what doesn't emotionally satisfy us when it comes to sex and relationships. By Saturday, the Moon (feelings) charges into hot-tempered and adventurous Aries, where it will stay into early Monday morning. While the Moon is in Aries, we may feel like we need to take an "all or nothing" approach when it comes to getting what (or who) we want. Though the energy of this week may feel quite raw, recognize that there's no better time than now to trust your instincts.
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. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may find yourself battling with your need for freedom and the urge to settle down. Remember, commitment doesn't mean a loss of independence if you can find someone who shares your love of adventure.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
This weekend should serve as a reminder that when you're feeling/treating yourself best, you activate your power to attract the best to you. Work on polishing your glow and soon you'll be hard to resist.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Love could sparkle this weekend if you're willing to open yourself up to someone different than your usual. You of all people know that a little variety is never a bad thing.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may find yourself playing a tug of war between your ambitions and your private life, but if you and your sweetheart are willing to work together, you could get the support you need to go after your dreams.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Consider this your moment to put an end to a relationship that has been emotionally draining or manipulative. You get a new lease on love, if you can find the courage to leave what's no longer working behind.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Intimacy is big on your list this weekend as the stars remind you that you can have what you want from love if you're willing to put in a little effort. Now is not the time to play small with your heart.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may feel pulled in two directions, thanks to what you want vs. what your partner wants (or what you think your partner wants). The key to compromise will be conversation — no matter how heated things may get.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may decide to call it quits on a love affair this weekend, or at the very least, get a clearer idea about what you want from love. Keep in mind that toxic relationships are never sexy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
A painful memory could be dredged up from the past this weekend, but don't let it stand in the way between you and your hopes and wishes for love. Now's the time for healing and fresh starts.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
When it comes to romance, you sometimes trade true love for what looks good on paper, instead of listening to what's really in your heart. However, you'll find that going forward, the status quo just won't do.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
When it comes to intimacy, are you getting what you really want? If not, it may be time to release any self-limiting beliefs that you may have about love. What and who you want exists. Believe it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may feel like a significant relationship (or the lack thereof) determines whether or not you can have what you want. Though ultimately, you call the shots. Remember your worth.
