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 Jan. 26-27 2018.
It may be hard not to get mixed signals this weekend as the Moon shifts between flirty Gemini and sensitive Cancer. With Venus in independent Aquarius and passionate Mars in freedom loving Sagittarius, we'll most likely do best with keeping potential love matches on the fun and carefree side for now, rather than push for something deeper. Established couples may have a better time with love, though they may have to watch out for an argument or misunderstanding as Mercury in practical Capricorn squares off with rebellious Uranus in Aries, getting signals crossed.
The craving for intimacy will be hard to deny once the Moon moves into Cancer on Sunday afternoon. While the Cancer Moon might have some of us feeling a bit nostalgic when it comes to a past relationship, Saturn in Capricorn will be on hand to remind us the importance of moving forward. At the same time, this Moon-Saturn match up will also remind us not to settle for less when it comes to love. If we find ourselves feeling lonely this weekend, know it's only temporary. The company of friends and family can help.
