Your Weekend Love Horoscope For December 17-18, 2016

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 Dec. 17 to 18.

As a welcome change from last weekend, this weekend is made for love with the Moon in playful and romantic Leo until Sunday afternoon. Saturday begins with an electric meeting between the Leo Moon and Venus (love) in Aquarius in the wee hours of the morning which could send us a surprise gift or two (like a 3 a.m. hookup with the cute neighbor from across the street). Though the goodies don't stop there as the Moon makes a nice angle to abundant Jupiter in equally romantic Libra mid-Saturday afternoon. As a result, we shouldn't find ourselves short of admirers or opportunities to find a date for New Year's Eve.

This Leo Moon also makes what we call in the astrology world a Grand Fire Trine with Saturn (commitment) in Sagittarius and Uranus (surprise) in Aries on Saturday evening, which could add a dose of lighthearted, yet passionate fun to love and sex. In astrology, Grand Trines happen when three cosmic bodies sync up in all three signs of the same element. In this case, a Grand Trine in fire signs creates the perfect storm for inspiration, passion, and daring moves, which is perfect for working up the nerve to ask someone out or to boldly flirt where you've never flirted before. The only caveat here is having too much fire that can quickly burn out of control, meaning we'll need to be careful with pushing things a little too far. However, with serious Saturn in the mix, there's a good possibility that new romances or a new chapter for a romance could hold long-term potential.

By Sunday morning, the Leo Moon makes another trine to the Sun in Sagittarius, which should help us in keeping our hearts and our bodies warm (*wink*) continuing where Saturday night left off. However, when the Leo Moon opposes unconventional Mars in Aquarius by late Sunday morning, a difference in opinion or fighting style could lead to some tension. When the Moon shifts into Virgo on Sunday afternoon, we'll have a the opportunity to figure out how to best handle that tension and anything else that comes up.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

To paraphrase your fellow Aries, Pharrell — you might find yourself up all night getting lucky this weekend as the cosmos cranks up the heat on your love life. No matter if you're single or spoken for, it's time to set hearts ablaze and have fun in the process.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

The intimacy you crave could be just a heartbeat away this weekend, and trust me, hearts will be beating. If you're able to be receptive to love now, the universe could pleasantly surprise you. Soul mates aren't just for fairy tales.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Your attractive power is turnt up this weekend which should leave you with a bevy of potential baes. Though if you’re looking for more than a hookup, you may need to make sure their words and their actions go beyond sweet nothings.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

The energy should feel much lighter between you and your love this weekend which means its good for sorting through something that you've been wantng to do like moving, getting married, or purchasing property. Get ready for a new chapter.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

Tonight could bring back some of that excitement you've been craving. So go ahead, throw on your best and show the world what its been missing. Then stand back and watch your fans fall all over themselves just to get a minute with you.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

Don't feel bad if you want to keep it low-key this weekend as the bright lights and big city isn't what you're after. Make it take out for two at home then get cozy on the couch. Single? Performing a little love ritual could help you invite the right one in.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

If you and your love haven't been seeing eye to eye, this weekend you could find yourselves on the same page as the lines to communication open and improve. If single, things could get going online or through a friendly introduction.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

This weekend is perfect for you and your partner to get together and map out/tweak your plans for the future. What do your plans look like in terms of your finances, career, housing, and handling your normal day-to-day stuff? Work it out.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

When it comes to love, what's your overall vision? Do you see yoursef traveling the globe with your love? Meeting someone in a romantic foreign city brought together by serendipty? Someone is about to come along and knock your socks off. Get ready.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

You could have a moment with someone special that touches your soul in a way that you never thought possible. Though instead of second guessing this connection, allow yourself to be open to love. This time, you get what you want.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

Love could be what your weird little dreams are made of this weekend regardless if you have a bae or not. Interested in meeting someone new? Hit the town with friends or drop into someone's DMs. Hey, you never know unless you take a risk!

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)

If something has been wrong between you and your partner or something's wrong with your love life entirely, this weekend is a good time for you to get to the bottom of it so you can fix it. Don't be afraid to release what's not working.
