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. 9-10, 2017.
It's stop and go when it comes to love and relationships this weekend with the Moon in picky Virgo squaring off with multiple planets in anything goes Sagittarius. Adding to the confusion is passionate Mars moving into sexy and seductive Scorpio while Venus in optimistic Sagittarius squares off dreamy Neptune in Pisces. Basically, what this all means is that our bodies (Mars) and our hearts (Venus) may be saying yes, but our heads (Virgo) might be saying no.
When it comes to meeting someone new, we might have to avoid rushing into anything or getting carried away with thinking about what could be. Meanwhile for those of us already in relationships, the true test will be making sure we're all on the same page with the Virgo Moon being affected by Mercury retrograde.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars mean for your love life.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
When it all boils down to it this weekend, you can't be the only one willing to do the work in your relationships. At some point, you have to let others take responsibility for themselves no matter how eager you may be to show them the way. It's OK to let a person prove themselves to you sometimes.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A certain someone could have your heart all aflutter this weekend, but even though they may be saying and doing the right things at first, you'll have to make sure that they won't be bringing you more of the same old thing. In other words, if it starts to feel like you've been down this road, you have.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You and your partner might have a hard time seeing eye-to-eye this weekend when it comes to something you feel strongly about or a goal you may be working toward. If your partner has a different take on the matter, it may be worth leaving alone for time being. You can come back to it later.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Things are heating up in your love life and while you may be having fun, don't get so sucked in by this person that you neglect the things that you need to do for you. On a similar note, a relationship isn't always sexy. Look for the type that still wants to be there once the newness has faded. Love takes work.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Someone you're seeing or may be thinking of seeing may not be able to offer you the kind of intimacy or emotional honesty that you need right now, which may leave you feeling wanting. Know this doesn't mean that you're destined to be alone. Sometimes you have to hold out for the right fit.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You and your love might not be on the same page this weekend, perhaps due to an old, unresolved issue or something that you feel that they may not be as forthcoming with you as they should. If you do need to air things out, try not to do it from a place of judgement but from a place of genuine concern.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
It's said that love often makes us do crazy things, but this weekend, you may want to think about how much you're willing to do for someone before you overextend yourself. Not that you shouldn't want to give from your heart, but if you're doing something for someone in an effort to be liked, slow down.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You and your sweetie might find yourselves talking about the future this weekend but that talk could quickly get contentious, especially if money is a part of the conversation. As such, try to exercise some patience and understanding in getting your point across. Single? Don't settle in love.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You might be feeling nostalgic this weekend which could have you ready to reach out to an ex. But before you send that text, email, or make that call, you may want to take a moment, or several, to think things through. Talking to this person might soothe you for a second, or it could leave you feeling worse.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may have high hopes about a special someone, but there's a strong chance that they might not be all that they seem. Before you start planning a future together with this person, put on your thinking cap and gather more clues. Make sure this person is who they say they are. Trust your intuition.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Is someone demanding more of you than you can afford to give or you should be giving? You might find out that a lover is not all they're cracked up to be, especially if they've been emotionally draining you. Know your boundaries and what you're willing to put up with. That way, you don't give too much away.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
This weekend you might be reminded that what is someone else's ideal may not be necessarily your ideal when it comes to love and relationships. As such, be mindful of getting caught up in the what could be and make sure you're seeing what's in front of you. Look for what's tangible rather than just words.
