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 26-27, 2017.
The big news for love this weekend is centers on Venus, the planet of love and relationships, leaving sentimental Cancer for passionate Leo early Saturday morning and bringing the big, showy gestures of love and affection along with her. This means we shouldn't be surprised if we find ourselves looking for that one-of-a-kind romance that sweeps us off of our feet, especially as the Moon shifts into all or nothing Scorpio. Though things may get a little sticky on Saturday morning as the Moon squares off with Venus. When these two don't see eye to eye, it can cause confusion in determining what we want versus what we need, though this Scorpio-Leo combo can make for some rather steamy encounters.
Though if we're on the market for a committed relationship or relationship based on a healthy dose of intimacy, the Scorpio Moon delivers this weekend, especially as she joins forces with the Sun and Mercury in devoted Virgo. By Sunday, when the seductive Scorpio Moon meets up with romantic Neptune in Pisces, we may find ourselves pulling out all the stops to woo and be wooed. Though with all the love going around, we should look to Jupiter in partnership oriented Libra teaming up with responsible Saturn in Sagittarius to help us with making smart choices when it comes to matters of the heart. When the Scorpio Moon joins forces with Pluto in Capricorn by later Sunday afternoon, there's no half-stepping it when it comes to love.
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)
Intrigue, passion, seduction. All three may be high on your list this weekend as your love life takes a steamy turn. This means even if you're looking for a casual fling it won't be taken lightly, which is why you should be intentional with your love magic. If feeling down on love, it's time to heal your heart.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
If you're looking for love, you could meet someone this weekend that offers you a soul mate kind of connection. At the same time, if you have unfinished business with an ex lover, this weekend could help you to sort it out. For attached Tauruses, look towards setting aside some quality time with bae.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
When it comes to love, are you busy trying to live up to an unrealistic ideal or attempting to force something that's not meant to be? If the answer is yes, it's time to reevaluate what's important to you when it comes to relationships. Keep it simple. Coupled Gemini may need to work on releasing the past.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Love is best this weekend with an intimate getaway or retreat for two. Though if you're single and currently on the market, your chances for meeting someone increase when you dare to have fun and do something different, even if it's checking out a new hot spot. Joy is a magnet for love.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You're in high demand this weekend, which should have potential dates practically lined up outside your door. Though as awesome as you are, it'll be important that you go for substance over style when it comes to making a love match. Fun and intimacy doesn't have to be mutually exclusive. Dive in.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
While you may connect with someone new, you'll find that you're looking for a deeper, heartfelt connection now. Which means it'll be important for you to be discriminating about who you choose to entertain because someone may not be what they seem. Coupled Virgos get the chance to deepen the bond.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
This weekend the lesson in love may be about how much you give and how much you keep, especially if you've been overextending yourself. Though that doesn't mean you can't get lucky in love. If looking to make a new match, a social gathering could be lit. Don't trade depth for something surface though.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
It's all about you this weekend as you're called to focus on what you want and what you need in love because if you want to get both, you'll have to make sure that your head and your heart are in alignment. This goes for whether your single or already a part of a couple. Stop doing the same old thing.
Sagittarius (Nov. 2 - Dec. 21)
You've got a big heart, Sag but not everyone needs to have access to it. When it comes to sex and relationships this weekend this theme may ring true. If you find yourself coming on a little too strong, a little too soon you may want to dial it back a bit and ask yourself if this connection is really worth having.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Is it getting steamy in here? Looks like the answer is yes as you're white hot this weekend. Don't be surprised if you're attracting matches like moths to flame because you'll be too hard to resist. If single, you could meet someone with lasting potential through a friend. Couples should get experimental.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Coming fresh off this past week's Solar Eclipse, which is bringing new opportunities for love and partnership your way, the stars continue to send positive love energy your way, which could bring a charming stranger into the picture. You're only task is to make sure there's more than meets the eye.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You may be feeling more like yourself this weekend which is a good thing when it comes to attracting a potential partner as a happiness is an aphrodisiac. When it comes to courtship, look to those whose words align with their actions and have the ability to teach you something new.
