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 July 15-16, 2017.
When it comes to love and romance this weekend, Saturday is the best bet as the passionate Aries Moon syncs up with the social butterfly, Venus in Gemini by late Saturday afternoon. Whether we're looking for love or we're already hitched, this Moon-Venus combo is perfect for fun, spontaneity, and meeting new people. An impromptu date could be just the thing to get the sparks flying. With the Moon in fiery Aries; being bold, direct, and upfront is favored now, so we shouldn't be shy about asking someone out or letting bae know just what we want (hint, hint). By late Saturday night the Moon gets into an opposition with Jupiter in romantic Libra, setting off the fireworks for the evening, creating just enough heat and good vibes to keep the party going.
We'll have to try to avoid letting that Aries passion boil over and burn us in the process.
After the Aries Moon and Mercury in Leo meet up early Sunday morning (setting the vibes for some scintillating pillow talk), things start to get a bit dicey. The Aries Moon battles with power-hungry Pluto plus the Sun and Mars in emo Cancer, which could have us feeling moody and hypersensitive throughout the day. By the time the Moon merges with Uranus in Aries by the end of Sunday night, we'll have to try to avoid letting that Aries passion boil over and burn us in the process. Though if something needs to be aired out, it'll definitely come out on Sunday.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars mean 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 all about you this weekend, which means that when it comes to romance, don't be surprised if potential mates and dates are clamoring to love up on you. Keeping it local this weekend could bring love. Meanwhile, is someone trying to get you to bend over backwards? Do yourself a favor, don't.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You're reminded this weekend that you're at your most attractive when you engage in pleasure, doing things that both make you feel and look good. Know that when it comes to finding love, you don't have to force it. No one gets to put a value on your worth except you. Keep that in mind as you go along.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You're the bees knees this weekend, as you shouldn't find yourself short of admirers if single and looking. There's a chance that hanging out with friends could lead to a love connection. Just make sure that the person(s) you choose have substance. Couples shouldn't try to break the bank during a night out.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It's possible that you could experience a profound connection with someone this weekend which could have you wondering if this person might be The One. While you shouldn't necessarily close yourself off to the possibility, it'll be important to make sure you and this person are really on the same page.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Love sparkles for you this weekend when you get away to someplace new, preferably if it's out of town, though somewhere within a short drive or train ride might do as well. Though if you're not entirely feeling it, that's OK too. By Sunday you'll be more in the mood to be alone and sleep in anyway.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
It's as though sexiness is oozing from your pores this weekend, which means that you'll be one to watch when it comes to winning over adoring fans. With this kind of attention, how can you lose? Well, the only way you can now is when you try to base something substantial on something superficial.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
If you and bae haven't got your bags packed yet, do it. Even if you can't go on an extravagant vacation, a long drive or a small weekend trip together could give the relationship what it needs — some fresh air. Single? It's possible you could make a love match with someone very different from you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You and your partner could find yourselves ready to make a big purchase this weekend like purchasing a new home, car, or a joint insurance policy. This is exciting news as it means you're both taking steps to deepen your bond. For singles, this is a good time to get clear about what you really want in love.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Romance heats up for you this weekend, especially if you make an effort to get out and have some fun. A party, concert, or comedy club are all places of interest, whether single or not. Couples may have to watch out for disagreements about money though, while single Sags need to let the ex go.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You and your love do best, keeping it low-key at home (perhaps organizing those closets?). Avoid getting on each other's nerves and don't force each other to do things the other doesn't want to do. Single? Time to work on fixing what you don't like about your love life. Be emotionally honest with yourself.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your love life gets a boost this weekend when you make time to have fun and get into something interesting with interesting people. Your friend or sibling could play matchmaker for you, while couples win big with a date night out. Overall, know you don't have to jump through hoops for anyone for love.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Single? Work on creating physical space for love, like buying paired sets or double items for your home. For example, having double pillows or matching chairs, with the idea that you will share them with someone, could help invite a romantic partner into your life. Couples could decide to move in together.
