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. 9-10, 2017.
A romantic weekend under a soothing, sensual Taurus Moon? Who could ask for more? Seriously, after a hectic week, cuddling up with someone we fancy is like the antidote to the cray that we need right now. Whether we're single or not, there's a little treat for us all this weekend when it comes to love. Though before the Moon shifts into Taurus late Saturday afternoon, the Moon finishes out her transit through passionate Aries, making sure to get sparks flying and hearts racing first. As such, we may find the courage we need to slide into the DMs of that soon-to-be special someone or find that having a mind-blowing quickie with bae is time well spent.
When the Moon shifts into Taurus, though, it's all about slowing down and savoring the connection between ourselves and another. Plus, with the Moon meeting up with the Sun and Mars in doting and devoted Virgo this weekend, it'll be hard not to have our hearts, minds, and bodies fixated on the ones we want. That said, the planets in Taurus and Virgo (along with magnetic Pluto in Capricorn) will be asking us to put more energy into the quality of our love lives more than anything. This will be especially true when Venus in Leo squares off with the Taurus Moon on Sunday night, creating a conflict between what we want and what we need. The best way to handle this tension is to go for substance over the flashy, shiny things.
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. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You could make a love match this weekend with the help of a friend or attending a swanky social gathering, but nothing says love like giving your time to a worthwhile cause. Could the next love of your life be a hottie with a heart for the environment or rescuing stray animals? Signs point to yes.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
When it comes to what you want in a partner, are you being too idealistic? Not that you should settle for someone that isn't a good match for you, but it's just that oftentimes what looks good on paper doesn't necessarily mean that it's something good for you. There is no cookie-cutter template for love.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Whether it's a weekend getaway with the one you adore or a solo day trip, having fun and being in your element works like a love magnet. When it comes to your relationship or the possibility of one, though, look to someone that's willing to share the workload. You can't be the only one pulling the weight.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Is it getting hot and steamy in here or is it just you? You're magnetism is white-hot this weekend, so take full advantage of the attention coming your way. However, if you're going to find love, you have to be open to it first. That may mean that it's time to stop getting hung up on what didn't work in the past.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
If you're looking for love, it may be time for you to get totally honest with yourself about what's working and what's not when it comes to your love life. Simply put, are you settling for bread crumbs when you could be having a whole meal? Honor what your heart needs and know that you deserve it.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
It's all about the connection and conversation this weekend, as you're interested in what your lover or your potential lover has to say. Can they hold your attention? Can they teach you something new? Outside of a heart to heart connection a mental connection is sexy, too. P.S. Talk dirty to 'em.
