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. 6-7, 2018.
The Moon remains in Virgo throughout Saturday, syncing up with Venus and Saturn in committed Capricorn as well as Mars and Jupiter in passionate Scorpio. When it comes to love and relationships, this cosmic combination is perfect if we're looking for connections made of depth and substance. The meeting between go-getter Mars and lucky Jupiter on Saturday evening will be especially helpful for turning up the heat and getting the sparks going. This kind of cosmic meeting between Mars and Jupiter doesn't happen very often, so if you're looking for love, this weekend is one of the best times to shoot your shot.
One hiccup we may have to watch for is when the Virgo Moon squares off with Mercury in Sagittarius on Saturday night, which can make the moment ripe for misunderstandings. However, if we're willing to hear each other out instead of needing to be right, we should be able to avoid any trouble. By Sunday morning, the Moon shifts into romantic and relationship-oriented Libra, putting us in the mood to partner up. However, with the Libra Moon squaring off with serious Saturn in Capricorn just a few hours later, we might not get too far if we're only looking for what's on the surface.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars mean for your love life.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your magnetism is off the charts this weekend, which means you won't have to look to hard or far for admirers. Now that you're headed toward the big leagues, you need someone that can match your maturity and your ambition. This means something casual won't satisfy you.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You could meet a sexy and intriguing someone this weekend, which could have you all revved up, though you may have to step a bit out of your comfort zone first. Perhaps this may mean traveling or visiting somewhere you've never been or giving someone a shot that might not be your usual type.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You and someone you've been seeing may not be on the same page this weekend, especially if this person hasn't been able to provide you with the substance or intimacy you need right now. That's OK, though, because it's high time you made room for someone better to enter your life. Change is good.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your romantic forecast looks good this weekend as you could meet someone with long-term potential. It doesn't necessarily matter where you are so long as you keep your heart open. Don't get stuck on what may have happened in the past. Couples may need to work out some relationship kinks.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
When it comes to your relationship, you might find that you can't be the only one to carry the workload of keeping it alive. If something isn't working, now's the time to work on improvements, but only if it's worth it to you in the long run. If single, you could be feeling down about love. It's not you; it's the timing.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You're in the mood for some TLC this weekend, and there's a strong possibility you can get some, though you'll have to be in it to win it. This means updating your online dating profile with some fresh pics or getting out of the house and doing something fun with your crew. Your smile is alluring.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You might want to keep the vibe low-key this weekend, which can be good for an intimate evening in with you and your sweetheart. If single, you could strike a connection with someone you meet through family or a friend, perhaps at a house party or gathering. No need to force yourself to be social.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You shouldn't have much trouble making a new love match this weekend, especially as your confidence levels are sky high. That said, don't be shy about making eyes with a cute stranger because it could lead to something nice. A night out with friends or hanging out at a local spot could bring fun.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
While things aren't exactly hot and heavy for you at the moment, it doesn't mean you're entirely out of the game. You're just not used to taking things as slowly as you need to with potential love interests right now. Still, it's a good time for getting clear about what you want and holding yourself accountable.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You should find yourself in high demand this weekend, as the stars lined up in your favor will be making you impossible to resist. If you don't have any plans, you should work on making some now as you could meet someone new at a social gathering or event. Extra points if it's somewhere you've never been.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could meet someone this weekend that challenges your fears around intimacy and pushes you to go deeper when it comes to your desires. Though you may try, it'll be close to impossible to shake this person off and forget them. That's why it may be worth investigating to see if this is the real deal.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You could meet someone this weekend, either through travel or friends, that could feel like the person you've been waiting for. Though, before you get too swept up, it'll be important for you to make sure that this person can meet your needs beyond the temporary moment. Use your best judgement.
