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 8-9, 2017.
The biggest thing happening in the stars this weekend is the intense full moon in Capricorn, which happens early Sunday morning (12:07 a.m. EST). When it comes to love and relationships, a full moon usually signifies an ending to a relationship or a solidifying of a relationship in some way, like going from casually dating to being committed. Though regardless of where we may be when it comes to love, we can expect challenges and changes to be highlighted this weekend under this extra grumpy Capricorn Moon. However, since Capricorn is a sign that prefers to face a challenge head on, this weekend can also be especially helpful when it comes to finding a solution and fixing what's wrong in our relationships, even if that may mean moving on and finding someone that's better suited for us.
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)
Sometimes someone that looks good on paper may not necessarily be good for us when it comes to long-term love. This weekend, you may be faced with this realization when it comes to a significant relationship or the potential for one. When it comes to your heart, the cookie cutter romance won't work.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
While you're known to be pretty straightforward when it comes to love, there are times when even you can avoid the truth. The truth will be important this weekend as you may be called to redefine yours when it comes to what you want in a relationship. It may be time to drop an unrealistic ideal.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Navigating vulnerability within a relationship may be a theme and a challenge for you this weekend as you contemplate how emotionally naked you should be with someone right now. You start by being emotionally honest with yourself first. Couples will have to address a financial issue, like debt.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
If you've been trying to keep a dead-end love affair afloat, this weekend it'll become abundantly clear to stop wasting your time. Meanwhile, for those Cancers in happy relationships, it's time to address the give and take between you and your bae. You can't always be the one making compromises.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
A partnership is a partnership when the people involved are both willing to do the work it takes to keep the relationship alive and healthy. Simply put, you can't always be the one that's willing to do the work. You can't control what others do either. You can control how you choose to handle things, though.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could find yourself ending a romance this weekend, especially if the person you've been involved with has been inauthentic in some way. At the same time, if you've been seeing someone steadily, you could find yourself taking this romance to the next stage if both of you are ready to commit.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You and your partner may not be on the same page this weekend, which could have you seeing red. Much of what's going on seems to involve something that was left unresolved in the past, or something you're still stewing on. While you don't like conflict, whatever you're avoiding will need to be addressed.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may find yourself feeling rather argumentative this weekend but it's important to remember that words can hurt. As such, how are you using yours when it comes to the one you love? Use your words to speak to the heart of the matter instead of exacerbating it. That's how you get what you want.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
When it comes to what you want in love and what you're actually getting, are things aligning the way they should? Simply put, the values that you have about love and partnership have to match your words and actions, otherwise you'll continue to get not quite the right matches. Don't allow yourself to settle.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
It's often your way or the highway, but this weekend you may be getting some push back on that when it comes to your partner. If you've been neglecting to compromise or are coming on a little too strong, you may be reminded this weekend that love is not about controlling others. Be willing to be fair.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may need to think before speaking this weekend as you don't want to regret what was said later. At the same time, you may need to address something that's been on your mind. Know that when it comes to how you feel, you don't have to play the stiff upper lip. Let your bae be there for you.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
When it comes to someone you're seeing or may be interested in seeing, something you may be hoping or wishing for may not materialize the way you want it to this weekend. However, try not to feel too discouraged, because you needed to see this for what it is anyway. Something better is coming.
