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 love horoscope for the weekend of Feb. 25-26, 2017.
This is a high energy weekend when it comes to love and relationships and part of the reason for this is because of a game changing Solar Eclipse in Pisces on Sunday afternoon. As eclipses mark sweeping changes, it's only fitting that the weekend kicks off with the Moon in experimental and unconventional Aquarius, which invites us to break free of stagnant relationships and relationship patterns.
This theme will be especially strong when the Aquarius Moon meets up with Mars and Uranus in daring Aries in the very early hours of Saturday morning. For those of us who are single and looking, this combination could get the fireworks started and set hearts ablaze. A late Friday night out with friends or some online flirting could ignite the spark, while the Moon meeting up with Jupiter in romantic Libra on Saturday morning — keeps the fire going by increasing chances to meet someone new. Later in the afternoon, the Aquarius Moon meets up with serious Saturn in Sagittarius which could help us to find a realistic solution to a problem in our love lives.
By Saturday evening, the Moon and Mercury shift into dreamy and romantic Pisces, which draws our feelings and our thoughts inward. As we move into Sunday's Solar Eclipse in Pisces, our focus will be drawn to fostering soulmate encounters, tender exchanges, and psychic bonds.
This eclipse will ask that we think less about ourselves in a singular context and more about others as a whole.
While this eclipse will come in close proximity to a volatile merger between Mars and Uranus in Aries, this eclipse will ask that we think less about ourselves in a singular context and more about others as a whole. In the context of love, only compassion, emotional intelligence, total devotion will do. If we must fight for anything, let it be for what will truly make us happy.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars means 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)
It's about taking love beyond the surface and casual now which means you're going to have to be more intentional about who you let into your heart. While you don't have to trade off fun and interesting for soulful and committed, you may need to let go of your old views/fears around love.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
When it comes to love, you may be asked to go beyond what looks good on paper and focus more on what (or who) brings value, depth, and a sense of belonging to your world. If single, a friend could turn into something more while couples could find themselves with renewed hope about the future.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Could wedding bells be in the picture for you? All cosmic signs point to yes, as this weekend could bring you a major milestone in your love life. Single? Love could still arrive if you allow yourself to step up and do something you've always wanted. Remember, people are attracted to confidence and passion.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Get ready to set sail for new lands and a new outlook on life as when it comes to romance, it's time to step outside of the same old, same old. Whether you're in a relationship or not, look to making time to do more of what you want as the happiness you create will be a magnet for the love you desire.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
It's time to stop telling yourself that old, tired story about love and relationships. If you truly want something or someone better the first step is to let go of the past and start focusing on what you want right now. If you think you can do better then it's time to do just that. Stop holding on.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Hold on to your hat because you're about to enter a whole brand new chapter when it comes to your love life. For single Virgos, you could have a chance encounter with someone with a soulmate vibe while coupled Virgos could take their relationships to the next level. Just make sure seeing clearly.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
This could be a weekend for love if you want to be. Though you'll find that the true theme of this weekend is not so much romance but being deliberate about how you spend your time and energy, otherwise things may feel a bit overwhelming. Keep your head clear and focused on what you want.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Romance picks up for you significantly this weekend which could put you in the right place and the right time to meet someone that wakes you up to life in a way that you've been sorely craving. Already have a bae? You both win by making time for intimacy, fun, and romance. Get creative and beat the boring.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
The weekend starts out like a bit of an action flick with fireworks, hot guys, hot babes, and probably a kick ass party or two. As a result, a short yet sweet romantic encounter could be just what you need to shake the dust off. By the end of the weekend you're ready for something deeper. Tend to your heart.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Love could be found right in your own backyard this weekend in a literal and figurative sense. Maybe you'll host a party and have a friend invite some of their cute friends or you could meet someone new at a neighborhood spot. If you're already bae'd up a heart-to-heart talk may be necessary. Listen up.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could meet a new mate this weekend, especially when you make time to get out, mingle, and be your usual witty self. Though if you've been feeling down on love, this is a good time to set some intentions on what you want. In a couple? Financially, things are looking up. Overall, be bold with your heart.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Get ready for your deepest wishes to come true when it comes to love and romance, as nearly half the cosmos will be behind you, conspiring for your happiness. This is your time to throw out the trash and pave the way for someone much better. Already in a relationship? Be vocal about your needs.
