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 22-23, 2017.
The romance may get off to a slow start this weekend and that's because the Moon is in sensitive Cancer until early Sunday morning, battling her way through the stars which includes an opposition to power hungry Pluto and freedom loving Uranus. However, the good news for Saturday is that Leo season begins, bringing the focus to a more playful and passionate form of love. Though things don't really get cooking until Sunday morning, under the New Moon in Leo. When it comes to romance, Leo is one of the best as it encourages us to follow our hearts and to love boldly, fiercely, and free.
We can look to this New Moon to help us bring more passion, creativity, and enjoyment to our love lives.
Since New Moons are a time for implementing plans and fresh beginnings, we can look to this New Moon to help us bring more passion, creativity, and enjoyment to our love lives. Shortly after the New Moon, the Leo Moon syncs up with equally passionate Mars in Leo, which could turn up the heat in and out of the bedroom.
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)
Things are heating up for you this weekend as the cosmos sends a bounty of love energy your way. If single and looking, the chance to meet someone new will be strong, so make sure you're in places where you can connect with others and have fun doing so. Already got a bae? Sunday night is date night.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You and your love may be focused on a home or family matter this weekend, which may include the prospect of moving, purchasing property together, or making an addition to the family. If single, you can attract the love you want by making your living space more couple friendly. Think in terms of two.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Finances may be a source of ire for couples this weekend, especially if money is getting in the way of your plans for the future. Though take heart as the lines of communication are opening for you to work this all out. In general working on your communication will help. Singles could find love online.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
When it comes to love and relationships this weekend, your mission is to make sure that you're not settling or allowing yourself to give your time and affections to those that don't appreciate you. You deserve more, Cancer. It's up to you to stop blocking your blessings. Couples need to talk money.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Focus on releasing the past this weekend, because you're embarking on a whole new chapter, love and romance included. With nearly half the cosmos on your side, you shouldn't find it too hard to gain the attention and affection of admirers. Overall, you don't have to try hard at all. Let them come to you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
There's a chance that you could meet someone new this weekend, but know that a surface or mediocre connection won't do. While you love a good "fixer-upper", know that ultimately you need someone that's willing to give their 110 percent to you as you are to them. Couples do best with alone time together.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Love works out best for you this weekend when you break away from others expectations and go with what (or who) makes you happy. Know that relationships differ and there's no template or formula to follow. You have to make your own rules. That said, a friend could play matchmaker for single Libras, while couples should keep it interesting and try something new.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Are wedding bells in the picture for you? If you and your bae have been serious and focused on the future, there's a chance that the two of you could be making a big step this weekend. Moving in together counts too. If single, you may need to shift your thoughts around love and try not to expect the worst.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may not be exactly feeling the love during the first half of this weekend. It seems you may be stuck on a past relationship or may be at odds with your partner about a financial matter or a deeply intimate issue. However, you may feel, you don't have to stay stuck there. Release what's no longer working.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
This might be a make-it-or-break-it kind of weekend when it comes to love as you and your partner may not be on the same page. Though choosing to air out and work through your grievances could lead to deeper intimacy. If single, consider this the time to break free of the past and welcome a fresh start.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
It's time to get clear on what you want from love, as this weekend it's all about making a clean slate for the kind of relationship you're seeking. If single, there's a strong chance for meeting someone with commitment potential, while couples succeed by working to recalibrate their relationship.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Before you get too hot and heavy with someone this weekend, it may be time to determine whether this person is more than just a pretty face. Can you see this person being a regular part of your life? Do their words and actions match? Above all, you shouldn't be the one doing all the emotional labor.
