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 Oct. 21 to 23.
The weekend may start off a bit rocky thanks to the sensitive Moon (emotions) in Cancer sitting in opposition to Mars (anger) and Pluto (power) in stoic Capricorn for most of Friday. This means that tempers/passions could quickly flare up as we try to balance our need for cuddling and affection with our need to play it cool. As a result, we might find it difficult to express how we truly feel without making a bit of a mess. However, if we utilize Capricorn's cool head to get our needs or point across in a logical way, we could avoid any potential meltdowns. Consider Friday and most of Saturday the best for getting down to the root of what's bothering us about love or partnership.
By Saturday night, the Moon moves into vibrant Leo, syncing up with happy-go-lucky Venus (love, money) in Sagittarius. Between the energy of these two, we can expect the mood to lighten up significantly. Enjoy the lightheartedness while it lasts, because by late Sunday morning, the Sun (confidence, power) enters Scorpio and we're pulled back down into the depths of intimacy. Overall, when it comes to love this weekend, you have to be 100 percent in to win.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars means for your love life.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You've never been the one to shy away from something or someone casual, but it looks like you've been craving something more lately when it comes to romance — a whole lot more. It's time to raise the bar on who and what you want.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Let love carry you away. No, seriously. A short trip or a weekend retreat could get your heart pumping whether you're single or not, putting you in position to meet a new love or to spice things up with the one you have. Go somewhere new.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
There's a chance you and your bae could really work each other's nerves this weekend, but instead of working your stuff out on each other, look to ways to work together so both of your needs are met.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You and your love may be in the fighting mood this weekend, but instead of working your stuff out on each other, look to ways to work with each other so both of your needs are met. Channel all that passion constructively. *Wink*
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Consider this the perfect weekend for you and your love to tackle anything around the house that you've either been putting off or too busy to do. In your case, a happy home is an organized one with a stocked fridge.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
This weekend it's all about getting in some private time for you and your boo. Instead of vegging out in front of the TV, turn it off and do something you really love: talk. Single? Examine a new approach to love.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Could a friendship become more than just a friendship? This weekend you could find out. However, before you both cross that line, make sure you're on the same page to keep things from getting awkward.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
This weekend, love could be just a DM or (a night out with your buds) away. Hit up one of your local haunts or if you're feeling really brave head out to somewhere new. Online, don't be shy. Let 'em know how you feel.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You're in high demand lately, but just because there's someone out there who wants your time, doesn't mean you should give it to them. With your star on the rise, it's time you raise your standard when it comes to your heart.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
This weekend you might find yourself caught between what you want and what your partner wants, but before you give in (or don't give in), consider ways that you can carve out space just for you without putting you both in an either/or place.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
A soulmate encounter or the beginnings of a secret romance could be in the works for you this weekend, which is fine because you're up for some love with a little depth. However, as your love story unfolds, be clear about what you want.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's all about fun for you and your boo this weekend. Try reenacting one of your most romantic dates or visiting somewhere that holds a little nostalgia for you both. You two will be cuddled up in no time. Single? Let a friend play wingwoman.
