We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, 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. 7 to 8.
A romantic weekend under a warm, cuddly, and sensual Taurus Moon? Who could ask for more? Seriously — after a hectic week, the weekend is one we should be looking forward to as the Taurus Moon meets up with romantic Neptune in Pisces (which should give us all a hearty dose of the warm fuzzies). By late Saturday afternoon, the Moon (feelings) goes on to meet up with sensitive Mars (passion) in Pisces, which should lend us the courage to go after the person that strikes our fancy. That said, if you should find yourself proclaiming your love for the person of your dreams to anyone within earshot, don't be surprised. By the late Saturday evening the Moon snuggles up to magnetic Pluto in Capricorn, which should give us all a deep craving that only a special someone (or someones) can feed. Shortly afterwards, the Taurus Moon gets cozy with the Sun in Capricorn, which should put everyone in a commitment-based state of mind.
Come Sunday, Cupid may need a little assistance; the Taurus Moon will be agitated a bit by Jupiter (opportunity) in marriage-minded Libra and Saturn (responsibility) in idealistic Sagittarius during the early hours of the morning, which could have us wondering if we're getting more than we've bargained for. With Mercury going direct, though (goodbye, retrograde!), we should be able to see the situation clearly. By early Sunday evening, the Moon enters multifaceted Gemini, which should remind us that we have options when it comes to love.

You could meet someone this weekend whom you may feel like you've known forever. While this kind of connection isn't a bad thing, the key here is to make sure that it's not a repeat of a lesson that you've already learned. One way to be certain is to make sure that their values align with yours.
Yaasss, queen! It's about time love showered her blessings on you. If you're single, you can expect to meet someone new through a friend, a social gathering, or while traveling. If you're already with the love of your life, a weekend getaway could reignite the spark between you. Enjoy!
Something could be heating up between you and someone older or someone you work closely with — and though it's important to weigh the consequences before you cross that line, this person could actually be good for you. It's about time you found someone who pushes you to your fullest potential.
Your partnership and marriage zone is lit up this weekend, which means that the possibility of meeting the next great love of your life is high. Make sure to get out with friends or explore somewhere new, since when you're in the throes of a good time is when you become most magnetic. Reel 'em in.
With Mercury still retrograde, there's a possibility you could hear from your ex this weekend; however, the theme of this weekend asks you to pinpoint what's wrong in your love life so you can work on improving it. When it comes to sex and intimacy, a sex/relationship workshop could help.
Love is outright magical for you this weekend as you're encouraged to open your heart to the possibility before you. While there's a chance that things may not work out, it takes a lot of courage and risk to truly experience the full benefits of love. Trust your intuition, of course, but don't let fear win.
This is the perfect weekend for you and bae to go over your financial details. If there's something you've been wanting to save for, like a new house, a car, or another major investment, the two of you could make it happen. Combine pragmatism with your dreams to make it work.
Love continues to brew for you this weekend, which may bring up issues around your level of vulnerability. While you're not being asked to open yourself up to everyone and anyone who may be enamored with you, there may be someone who's arrived recently that deserves a chance.
You may be stuck too far in the past today wondering if love is even for you. However, if you've been finding your love life lacking, maybe it's time to take a breather and get clear about who you want. Better still, treat yourself well so others will do the same. Trust your own power.
Romance is the stuff that dreams are made of this weekend, as your charm and swag levels hit the ceiling. People are like putty in your hands right now, so don't be afraid to go after what you want. Whether you're single or not, you win at love — so make sure not to talk yourself out of taking a gamble at it.
This is one of those weekends where you'll want to take it down a notch or two and spend a quiet, cozy couple of days with the one you love. Single? You could meet someone at one of your neighborhood haunts or through a family member. Either way, love is best when you keep it close to home.
Love sparkles for you this weekend as you become the person that's on everybody's hot list. So, what do you do with this kind of mojo? You work it. Get out, have some fun, and accept as many invites to gatherings and parties as you can. A house party or get-together with friends could spark a chance meeting.
