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 day. Today's topic: your weekend love horoscope for May 5-6, 2018.
Although Venus is in playful and curious Gemini, it will be hard not to take matters of the heart seriously with multiple planets in committed Capricorn, the Sun in stable Taurus, and Jupiter (the planet of abundance) in all-or-nothing Scorpio. If looking for love, we may be more interested in long-term prospects than a casual affair. Those of us in relationships may be motivated to work on strengthening or repairing our intimate bonds or ending them if they no longer feel fulfilling or engaging, especially when the Moon in Capricorn squares off with freedom loving Uranus in Aries on Sunday morning. By late Sunday morning, the vibe takes on a lighter tone when the Moon shifts into friendly Aquarius. With the Moon and Venus being in air signs (Gemini and Aquarius), our approach to relationships gets flirty, chatty, and intellectual. A love connection could be one DM, swipe, or witty conversation away.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign this weekend, and check out your May 2018 monthly horoscope.
