We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible 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 day. Today's topic: your horoscope for New Year's weekend.
The Moon moves into partnership-oriented Libra late Friday afternoon, putting the emphasis on relationships and fairness. Under a Libra Moon, we might find ourselves feeling a bit more diplomatic and willing to compromise and join forces with others. Though when it comes to our relationships we're reminded to go for substance over fluff and to exercise boundaries and good judgement, especially as the Libra Moon squares off with the Sun and Saturn in no-nonsense Capricorn on Saturday and power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn on Sunday. Plus, love planet Venus is still in all-or-nothing Scorpio.
For those of us looking to establish healthier connections with others for the New Year, this Libra-Capricorn mashup can help us to move forward towards better relationships, while leaving behind those that no longer work. With the Libra Moon opposing rebellious Uranus in Aries on Sunday evening, moving forward (without looking back) shouldn't be too hard to do. Mercury and Jupiter in happy-go-lucky Sagittarius will help to keep us optimistic.
By Sunday night, the Moon enters seductive Scorpio, where she'll stay until Wednesday. Bringing in the New Year under a Scorpio Moon means that there will be plenty of intensity and passion to go around, which might not only add to the New Year's Eve fireworks, but it might also motivate us to greet the new year with courage and verve. Of course, having go-getter Mars move home to Aries on New Year's Eve also bodes well for 2019 as Mars in Aries (which will also be influencing the Scorpio Moon), will give us the drive, motivation, and enthusiasm needed to start the year off on the right foot. Are you ready for an adventure?

You're irresistible.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
If you were hoping to get a date for a NYE shindig, you might not have to look to hard or too far as there's a strong chance you'll be on the most wanted list.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your health and well-being are important now. Meanwhile, your connections to others can help you to beat any holiday or winter blues that you may be dealing with. Reach out to those you love and be open to party invitations. Laughter is good.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

Cultivate joy.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
A financial- or friend-related matter could suck the wind out of your sails this weekend but try not to let it get you down in the dumps.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
