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 Dec. 2-3, 2017.
Although love planet Venus is in adventurous Sagittarius and the Moon is in friendly and flirty Gemini for much of the weekend, the start of Mercury retrograde, coupled with a Full Moon, may make things a bit tricky when it comes to love and relationships. That's because Venus in Sagittarius will be motivating us to go, go, go for it when it comes to pursuing the objects of our affections while Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius might cause some confusion about which direction to take. If we're single and looking to meet someone new, the best way to hit the dating scene this weekend is with a light and carefree approach, as Mercury retrograde can bring out the flakiness in us all.
Meanwhile, don't be surprised if an ex makes a curtain call appearance this weekend as retrogrades are notorious for bringing up people from our past. Still, with Sunday's Full Moon in Gemini, we may want to think twice about rekindling any flames as this Moon will be all about seeing people for who they are and closing out a chapter in our lives.
With Mercury retrograde afoot, communication issues could also be a big problem this weekend.
With Mercury retrograde afoot, communication issues could also be a big problem this weekend as the atmosphere is ripe for disagreements, misunderstandings, and delays. Keep this in mind when it comes to trigger-finger texting, making snap judgments, and keeping date night plans.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars mean for your love life.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You might find yourself in adventurous mood when it comes to love this weekend, which is not far from your usual mood. However, when it comes to the person piquing your interest, how much do you really know about them? It may be worth investigating now so you can avoid a heartache later.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You've got a vibe about you these days that's pretty hard to resist, which means you shouldn't find yourself with a shortage of admirers. As exciting as it may be to be pursued like this, stick your your motto of quality over quantity. Know where your values lie when it comes to love and romance.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Love might feel like a battlefield for you this weekend, as it may seem like you and your lover or a potential lover just can't seem to get on the same page. Part of the reason for this is that you may need to see them or your own needs more realistically. It's time to get emotionally honest with yourself.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
If you've been seeing someone fairly new or thinking about seeing someone, you could find out some info about this person this person this weekend that could have you looking at them in a very different light. The key here is to get all the facts and use your best judgement. Don't ignore your intuition either.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
A former flame or two could make a reappearance this weekend. Though before you get giddy and start walking down memory lane with this person, know that there's a reason this person is a part of your past. If closure is needed, there's a small chance you could get it, but don't hold your breath.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
While you often strive for perfection, there's really no such thing as the perfect love and you could have this realization this weekend. That said, what does exist is the perfect love for you. Remember this before you subscribe to anyone else's ideals about relationships. You don't have anything to prove.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
While you're the sign that's associated with partnership and marriage, you may have found your needs and tastes in love changing and changing again. That's a good thing, because it means you're evolving — as you should. This is the theme for you this weekend: what old beliefs about love do you need to shed?
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
If attached, you might find you and your partner needing to have a tough conversation around money. Don't back down from it though because whatever is up shouldn't be something you or they gloss over. If single, it may be time to say goodbye to someone that doesn't appreciate you or your values.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
With nearly half the stars lined up ion your behalf, this weekend may be an a-ha moment of sorts when it comes to highlighting the ways you give too much away when it comes to your romantic relationships and where you could stand to be more responsible with your heart and what you say.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
While you like to believe that you don't believe in fairy tale love stories, even you have a sappy, romantic side. Lately, it may seem like that side has been screaming more and more for your attention. While that isn't a bad thing, you may want to be mindful of giving in impulsively to that side of you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You might find yourself calling it quits this weekend with a lover or a potential lover, especially if you feel like this person has been limiting you in some way or if the relationship has been lacking in a true sense of camaraderie. Overall, know that you don't have to stick to a rote script when it comes to love.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You might have a realization in terms of where you may be shortchanging yourself when it comes to getting the kind of relationship you want. For starters, you can't be everything to everybody, so there's no use in trying to mold yourself into being someone else's fantasy. Be true to you.
