Your Weekend Love Horoscope For August 19-20, 2017
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 week. This week's topic: your weekend love horoscope for August 19-20, 2017.
As we gear up for Monday's solar eclipse in Leo, this weekend may have the feel of something starting anew when it comes to love and relationships, especially as the Moon in sentimental Cancer and rebellious Uranus square off early Saturday morning, putting us in the mood to leave behind anything that's not working. By Saturday afternoon though, the Moon shifts into Leo, bringing out the die-hard romantic and playful paramour in us all. With the Moon in fiery and passionate Leo most of the weekend setting hearts ablaze, singles and couples alike should expect to get lucky. Even with Venus in sentimental Cancer, the energy remains juicy well into Sunday night, especially with hotblooded Mars in Leo and Jupiter in relationship-oriented Libra in the mix. Venus in Cancer will be bringing the tenderness while Leo brings the heat.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars mean for your love life. And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday at 5 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You might be the luckiest of all when it comes to love this weekend as the stars align to bring you the person of your dreams. Though, you'll have to make sure you're in the right space for it, so let go of anything or anyone that doesn't align with you. Attached? You will be reminded why you fell in love.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Home is where your heart is this weekend, which means entertaining friends at home with your love may be good for you, while an intimate weekend together could also work. If you've been trying for a baby, some good news could be on the way. If single, work on letting go of the past. Goodbye ex.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your forecast for romance looks bright this weekend, especially when you make it your mission to see and be seen as much as you can. An impromptu date at a local spot could be promising while an online love match could make your day. If you're already boo'd up, shake up your usual routine together.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You might find yourself in nesting mode this weekend, which means time spent with bae at home may be favored over a night on the town. If single, you could meet someone at a friend's house party or a family barbecue. Meanwhile, money or moving house could come up for conversation with bae.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You're the showstopper this weekend, so don't be surprised if folks are falling all over themselves trying to bask in your light. That said, don't be afraid to be picky and choosy about who you engage, as not everyone deserves your time and attention. Coupled Leos may need some "me" time before the "we" time.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may not be feeling as outgoing this weekend as you'd like but it might not hurt to accept a friendly invitation to at least one social event as you never know who you might meet. Meanwhile, if you've been feeling down on love lately, this could be a good time for releasing the past and renewing your faith.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
The magic happens this weekend by way of your friends or at a social gathering, so put on your best and hit the town. Like Ariel from The Little Mermaid, you'll want to be where the people are as you're bound to get noticed. Already in a couple? It's time to start planning for the future.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You might find yourself feeling rather ambitious when it comes to love this weekend, which could mean taking a major new step with your sweetie. While you won't be necessarily sitting on the sidelines this weekend if you're single, you should use this time to get crystal clear about what you want from love.
Sagittarius (Nov. 2 - Dec. 21)
Keeping in tradition with your love of exploring new places, a weekend getaway is just the thing you and your bae need to stoke the fire. Even if a trip isn't in the budget for now, taking a class together or trying something new could be fun. Single Sags could make an international connection.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Admirers may be lining up at the door for you this weekend because you're smoking hot. If things have been feeling a bit dreary lately, add some color into your life by diving into your sensuality and rediscovering what makes you feel juicy. Coupled Caps might find it hard to leave the bedroom. Enjoy!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
The love forecast sizzles for you this weekend as the stars align to bring you a very special someone. If single, you could have the opportunity to meet someone new with commitment potential. Meanwhile, coupled Aquarians could decide to take the next step with their love or rekindle the romance.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Continuing with the theme of self-care, this weekend puts emphasis on how important it is to love yourself first, especially if you're interested in attracting a mate of a higher caliber. Consider this weekend your opportunity to clear a space for what you really want. Space holders and time wasters be gone.
