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 Sept. 16-17, 2017.
With the Moon in playful and passionate Leo for the entire weekend, the love forecast is hot, hot, hot! That means singles and couples alike can get in on the romantic fun as Leo never does anything small or dull. Mercury and Mars meet up in Virgo on Saturday afternoon to help things along by sparking the need to get out and socialize. Though we may have to watch out for the need to criticize or argue with those we fancy too, as this combo can make us a bit more persnickety than usual. However, Sunday by far is the best day of the weekend as the Leo Moon teams up with nearly half the cosmos (including Venus in Leo) to bring people together.
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)
There's a strong chance for you to make a love connection — especially while you're out and about having fun. Try not to pack your schedule too much, as you'll want to stay flexible for last-minute plans. Already coupled up? Put a little extra thought into a romantic evening. Your lover will thank you.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It's a fun, yet laidback kind of weekend for you, which means that when it comes to love, look to others doing the same. A cooking class, wine tasting, or a local comedy club could be the bees knees. Plus, as a Taurus, you're best when in you're in a low-key, no muss, no fuss setting. Just be yourself.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
As you're running your errands this weekend, like a trip to the bank or grocery store, keep it cute and casual because you could meet a bae en route. Already with the love of your life? Entertaining friends or guests at home could be a pleasure for you both. Also, look to fun, hands-on activities for a date night.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Grab your purse and hit the shops this weekend, because your next date could be in line behind you. If shopping isn't your thing, don't fret because you've still got a shot. Hanging with friends could bring you a step closer to love while visiting a neighborhood spot could also get things popping.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You're in high demand this weekend, as you have just the right combo of wit, style, and charm to bring all the boys or girls to the yard. That's why you should make plans to see and be seen as potential love matches will be checking for you. If already attached, expect some pampering from bae.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
It's an intimate, sultry kind of weekend with you and your love. Though with being as thoughtful as you are, you shouldn't have too much trouble with planning a romantic evening. If single, your intuition comes in handy if you feel like someone could be too good to be true. Your heart can be healed.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
While you may feel a bit torn between going out and socializing and stay home to recover from your week, a low-key outing with friends could be just the thing to pick you up and get you back in the dating game. Don't be shy about asking a friend to play your wingperson. No pressure though.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
When it comes to love this weekend, it's possible that you and your bae may be ready to take the next big step in your relationship. The future looks bright, so go with it. Single? It's time to get truly clear about what you want when it comes to the long term. Release self-defeating thoughts about love.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Love sizzles for you this weekend when you dare to follow your heart and be present to where it takes you. Friends could pay a role, as you could meet someone new while out and about with them. Meanwhile, know that you don't have to force anything to happen. Who's for you will be for you. 'Nuff said.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
A weekend getaway with your beloved may be just the thing that the two of you need, especially if it's something that exposes you and your brain to something new. Meanwhile, single Caps shouldn't find it too hard to snag the attention of an admirer or two. A genuine, soulful connection is in the works.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
To paraphrase Pharrell — you might be up all night getting lucky this weekend as the stars align to bring you some sexy fun. Single? You could connect with someone in a way that feels deeply intimate and fated. Meanwhile, if you're already attached, stock up on snacks. You may never leave the bedroom.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
When it comes to love, look to a partner (or a potential partner) that fuels you up. Look to the person that brings some healthy excitement to the table and who can teach you something new. There's a strong possibility you can meet that person this weekend. Couples should shake up their routine.
