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 5-6, 2017.
When it comes to love and relationships this weekend, we may find ourselves feeling a push-pull kind of vibe, thanks to the commitment oriented Capricorn Moon teaming up with obsessive Pluto, squaring off with freedom loving Jupiter and Uranus, then moving into freedom loving Aquarius by Sunday morning. While a Capricorn Moon can put us in a mood to fix problems within a relationship or to see a rough patch through, it's important that we don't settle for a sub par relationship or cling to one just because we're afraid to move on and meet someone new. With this weekend being so close to the August 7 Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius (aka a turbo charged Full Moon), this may be a weekend full of aha moments and interesting twists and turns when it comes to romance.
Breakups could be inevitable for some of us while others may be ready to begin a new chapter in love.
As Lunar Eclipses tend to mark endings and things coming full circle, breakups could be inevitable for some of us while others may be ready to begin a new chapter in love. Either way, change is afoot and for the better.
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)
Someone that looks good on paper may not necessarily be good for you, which means you don't have to follow a script or template when it comes to your love life. What others are doing may work for them but you have to figure out what works for you. Love is not a one-size-fits-all kind of thing.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
An ideal that you may have about love and partnership may be just that — an ideal. When it comes to the nitty-gritty reality of things, sometimes it's about accepting a person as they are, instead of pinning your dreams on them or trying to fix them. Allow a person to show up for you. They will if they want to.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Debt and finances could be the subject of talk between you and your partner this weekend, which could have you both rethinking plans you've made. While you don't need to give up on those plans, you may need to readjust how you'll execute them. Single Gemini may come to realize they need more from love.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may feel like your relationship or the potential of one is hindering you from pursuing your goals, namely when it comes to your career, plans to relocate, or perhaps starting a family. Can your relationship survive this challenge? Possibly. Though you can't be the only one making compromises.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
When it comes to someone you're seeing, are you seeing them as clearly as you should be? Before you fall head over heels, you may need to do your due diligence and pay attention to the facts. This person may not be all they seem. Meanwhile, it may be time to discard old beliefs about love and relationships.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Passion, mystery, and obsession are great for TV dramas but not necessarily the best thing when it comes to love. If someone has you on an emotional roller coaster, it's time to pump the emergency brakes and hop off. Your thoughts shouldn't be consumed by their shenanigans. Treat yourself better.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You could be saying goodbye to someone you've been seeing or come to the brink of it, especially if this person hasn't been as reliable or committed as you need them to be. Either way, the course of your relationship needs to change if things are going to work out. P.S. there's plenty more fish in the sea.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may find yourself super busy this weekend, which means it's the perfect time for you and bae to handle errands and other things that may need taking care of around the house. Meanwhile, when it comes to quality time together, you may need to make some adjustments to your schedule.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Someone you're interested in or may be currently dating may be giving you all the excitement and fun you can handle, but where are they when it comes to your deeper needs? If this person is stirring up all your insecurities, you may need to take a step back and examine why that's OK. Wake up, Sag.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may need to take an honest look at how your family history or conditioning has shaped your approach to love, especially if your past relationships haven't worked out well. It's time to rethink what you value in love and intimacy. Better yet, maybe it's time to create a new set of values.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
There could be some news that comes to light this weekend that sets you on a brand new course when it comes to an intimate relationship, or something you once believed about relationships may no longer align with the person that you're becoming. It's best if you focus on your own needs for now.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You may feel caught between wanting to keep things light in a friends with benefits situation and wanting something much deeper, which could have you questioning your values and what you really want. Recognize that when it comes to love, only a soulful connection will do. Don't short yourself.
