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 Jan. 28-29, 2017.
Love and romance is a bit tricky this weekend as we're still dealing with the square off between Venus in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius. With Venus in Pisces representing the sensitive, intimate, and more idealistic side of love, hard-nosed Saturn in Sagittarius could dampen Venus in Pisces' more romantic ways which could cause breakups, frustration, and the inability to get who or what we want. The upside to the weekend though is that Mars, the planet of sex and confidence moves back home to passionate Aries early Saturday morning, while the Moon remains in cool and friendly Aquarius until Sunday afternoon.
With Mars back in Aries, and coming off fresh of from yesterday's New Moon, we get the opportunity to start anew in matters of the heart. As the Venus-Saturn square starts to wane, the Aquarius Moon meets up with Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Libra, and Saturn in Sagittarius which adds to the theme of new beginnings in love and partnership. Even those who are not single can still benefit from this energy by renegotiating or reevaluating a relationship. The Aquarius Moon helps us to remain objective and communicative along the way. By late Sunday morning the Moon enters romantic Pisces. Coupled with a merger between Mercury and Pluto in committed Capricorn, we should be in the mood for some deep bonding.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars means for your love life.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Here's the part where you're back in the driver's seat and calling the shots, which means that when it comes to getting who or what you want, your mojo can make it happen. Expect people near and far to be clamoring for your attention. That's because they know a good thing when they see it.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
This one of those weekends where you and your partner have the best time sitting and talking about your goals and dreams for the future. Look to ways that you can improve your financial status to be a part of the conversation. If you're single, you could meet someone through a friend or acquaintance.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
After the initial weekend slump, the horizon brightens up significantly when it comes to love and romance. If single, the chances for meeting someone new are high while couples could find themselves enjoying time spent together. Travel, workshops, art exhibits, concerts, and other outings provide the fun.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
This weekend it's all about getting into activities with your lover that enable you to strengthen your relationship and take it to new depths. For example, a tantra workshop or class on BDSM techniques could be fun and enlightening. Single? It may be time to Feng Shui yourself into the love of your life.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Love heats up this weekend for you, especially if you're traveling, out with friends, or getting into something new. One thing to be mindful of, is focusing too much on the past as it can distract you from seeing the opportunities in front of you. Whether single or not, it's time for something different.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You and your partner may need to go over your finances this weekend, especially if you were looking to purchase a house or make another investment to secure your future. Teamwork can make the dream work. If single, your magnetism is sky high, but be choosy about who you let in.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
There may be a hiccup or two between you and your partner at the start of the weekend but things significantly improve by the time the weekend is over. Use this time to address any challenges and make it your mission to add some fun and spontaneity. Single? New love is on the horizon. Enjoy!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
While a relationship or love affair may fizzle out, know that this isn't the end of the road for you when it comes to love. Sometimes when it comes to getting what you want, you have to send out the right signals. For you this may mean changing a self-limiting mindset about relationships and intimacy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Love is promising this weekend if you're willing to let go of the past. Whether it's an ex or a sour feeling about love, there's a chance that you can find the person you want, if you shift your perspective. Friends could pave the way to a romantic introduction if you're open to it. Couples could rekindle the spark.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may find yourself more in love with work than anything else this weekend but that doesn't mean romance isn't in the stars for you. You seem to say all the right things now that can draw someone closer as you work through leaving an old heartbreak behind. Couples win by focusing on the future this weekend.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Money may still be a little tight this weekend, but that doesn't mean you and your honey can't have a good time. Instead of a vacation, make it a staycation, or find an interesting, yet free activity. Single? This is a good time to get clear about your values so you can attract someone who matches them.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Regardless of what other people may think about your relationship or relationship status, at the end of the day what really matters is what you think. While others may be well-meaning, you can take care of yourself. Just make sure you're truly happy more than anything. How you feel is key.
