Get ready. Summer eclipse season is upon us. It starts with Monday’s full moon lunar eclipse and lasts for two weeks, ending with a total solar eclipse on the 21st. But before the eclipses come, this weekend’s moon is passing over Pluto—the planet of death and rebirth—and that’s exactly what this eclipse season is all about. This weekend is preparing you for the start of a deep, transformative cycle. Your relationships will not be left untouched, and whatever shape they’re in on Monday doesn’t tell you how they’ll look in the end. So whatever happens, know that this is just the beginning.
Aries Weekend Love Horoscope
You want freedom. You want intimacy and security. You can’t have it all. Or can you? This weekend marks the end of a two week cycle full of love and affection. But have you been putting yourself out there to enjoy it? Love isn’t going to just come to you. Make time Friday to connect with someone special (new or known) because come Saturday, as the moon passes Pluto and squares Uranus in Aries, you’ll be feeling all sorts of confused about what you want and how you can get it. Insecurities and conflicting desires run high. Give yourself alone time to rest and reflect before Monday’s eclipse. You don’t need to blow everything up in order to be free.
Love Lesson: You can feel free to be yourself and do what you want while still feeling secure and nourished in a relationship.
Taurus Weekend Love Horoscope
Change is coming. You freaked out when you read that, right? Luckily, the universe knows you don’t like change, so this weekend, it’s giving you plenty of time to enjoy whatever stability you’ve created. There are no major planetary influences rocking you right now, but when it comes to love, it isn’t all about you. You may like your calm, peaceful, controlled space, but if you want that peaceful calm in love, don’t forget to take other people’s thoughts and feelings into consideration. Whether you’re single or with someone, know that they’re probably going through something—or about to go through something—so share your sturdy calm. This Saturday, invite them over for a chill night in. With your ruling planet of Venus in Cancer, you’ll also enjoy staying home. Win-win.
Love Lesson: Make space for other people within your comfortable patterns and routines.
Gemini Weekend Love Horoscope
You know how you like to talk about every little thing and sometimes the person you’re with is like, Hey, can we please just stop talking? Well, no need to worry about that this weekend! With your ruling planet of Mercury connecting freely with Venus and the moon, your talkative nature will serve your love life well. Single? You’re better off meeting someone where you can actually talk to them. Avoid noisy, crowded bars. Go for house parties and real live dates. Partnered? If you’ve been biting your tongue, now is the time let it loose and explain exactly what's on your mind. This Friday and Saturday, communication fuels affection and will support your emotional wellbeing. You’ve got this.
Love Lesson: Sometimes it’s better not to talk through everything, but holding back can do even more damage. Feel free to express yourself.

Cancer Weekend Love Horoscope
With Venus in Cancer aspecting multiple planets, you’re even more focused than usual on love and partnership. Whether you’re single or partnered, you’re in a great place to enjoy your love life right now. Communication flows freely between you and any love interest, and through romantic love, you feel free—both free as an individual human and free as a spiritual being. Love can teach you a lot this weekend. Expect to grow. Remember though, growing pains are real, so you may feel some uneasiness. But this is because you’re growing! And you’re growing through love. Very cool.
Love Lesson: Your partners are here to teach you things, and you’re teaching them, and we’re all teaching each other and growing and loving, and while it isn’t always easy, it is beautiful.
Leo Weekend Love Horoscope
This weekend is all about having fun. Because how else would you prepare for an intense eclipse season that happens to land smack in the middle of your sun sign? With the sun and Mars in Leo sextiling Jupiter, now is the time to get out and play. Relax with chores and to-dos. Just grab your person (with their permission of course) and take a road trip or go on an adventure date. Really, just do whatever you want, because I have no doubt it’s going to be fun. And with no major shifts in your stars over the course of the weekend, the fun is going to last from Friday through Sunday. Seriously, this really is a great weekend to get away. Just go to the beach or something, okay?
Love Lesson: The people we play with are the people we stay with.
Virgo Weekend Love Horoscope
Your ruling planet of Mercury is in your sign, and you’re in your head with all your thoughts. This may be a comfort zone for you, but it isn’t necessarily a happy one. While you’re excellent at thinking through just about anything, too many swirling thoughts and what-ifs can make you super anxious. If you can stop the internal monologue for long enough to connect with someone else (which I highly recommend), then this weekend is great for love. Stimulating intellectual conversation will be a turn on, and your analytical mind will be appreciated by whomever you’re with. So open up, and let them enjoy your interesting thoughts rather than collapsing in on yourself. You’re racing mind will enjoy having somewhere new to go.
Love Lesson: Look outside yourself to experience connection and soothe a busy mind.

Libra Weekend Love Horoscope
Even in the best relationships, there are times when things just don’t feel right. This Saturday, you’ll be feeling all sorts of confusion surrounding your partnership, even if things seem great on paper. If you’re single, you might feel like you’ll never meet anyone and what’s the point in even trying. If you’re partnered, you may find yourself unexpectedly irritated by your relationship. Jupiter has been giving you a lot of romance to ponder and enjoy, but this weekend, as it squares the moon, you might wonder where all that good fortune has gone. In order to restore balance and feel better, you may push your feelings aside and forgive too easily. Instead, trust that balance will be restored. Get your body moving and have some fun. You’ll be feeling better come Sunday.
Love Lesson: Let discomfort pass on its own rather than trying to fix it and keep the peace no matter what.
Scorpio Weekend Love Horoscope
Remember Earth? That thing you live on? This weekend’s Capricorn moon conjuncts your ruling planet of Pluto and works to ground you. And you need that grounding right now because you’re already feeling the intensity of the pending eclipses. As a result, you’re likely going to be moody this weekend for no apparent reason. And sure, your partner is used to this, but give them a break by giving yourself a break and time alone. If you’re single, you’re probably going to want to stay home or spend time with friends rather than go looking for romance. Go for a walk outside. See some green. Smell some flowers. These things will help remind you that Earth is a pretty great place to be.
Love Lesson: When things feel intense, don’t accidentally unleash that intensity on those closest to you. Find your calm.
Sagittarius Weekend Love Horoscope
Your fiery nature is, well, on fire right now. A grand trine between all three fire signs is amplifying the heat, and you’re going to feel extra wild and crazy this weekend. Pay no mind to the practical Capricorn moon. There’s fun to be had, and you’re going to have it. Lean into your independence and enjoy any partners or lovers in your life. Not only will spending time with them bring you joy and excitement, but it will also help ease any nagging thoughts telling you that you’re not enough or you don’t have enough. So go dancing. Go rafting. Go for a hike. Adventure and play. No need to worry about wanting more right now. You have everything you need, including Monday’s full moon, which, btw, totally has your back.
Love Lesson: Love the one you’re with!

Capricorn Weekend Love Horoscope
This weekend’s emotional energy is aligned with your sense of self. And both of these are aligned with your communication. Feel free to speak your mind this Friday or Saturday, as anything you have to say will be a reflection of your authentic self. And with the Capricorn moon sextiling Neptune, your usual cool, detached emotional expression will be balanced by Neptune’s romantic, compassionate nature. If you’re single, now is a great time to go out and meet someone. If you’re partnered, hold your person close and tell them how you feel. I know words aren’t really your style, but this weekend, you’ll find the right ones.
Love Lesson: We may not always have the best words, but we say it the best we can. Even if it’s without using words at all.
Aquarius Weekend Love Horoscope
Slow down. Your ruling planet of Uranus just went retrograde, and Monday’s eclipse is in Aquarius. The universe is asking you to reflect and reconsider how you express your independence. Is your fierce desire for autonomy getting you what you want? And what is that exactly? You won’t know yet, but clarity is coming. Friday and Saturday—before the moon enters Aquarius—make use of Capricorn’s practical traditional ways to ground any relationship you’re in, and let Sunday be a time for rest and self care. Draw yourself a salt bath. Journal through your unusually intense emotions. Visualize whatever pain and discomfort you want released on Monday’s full moon. And be okay giving your love life some space this weekend.
Love Lesson: Sometimes the best decision is no decision and to simply give your love life space to breathe.
Pisces Weekend Love Horoscope
This weekend is all about healing through love. Your ruling planet of Neptune is in Pisces and connecting beautifully with Venus and the moon. You’ll be feeling emotionally nourished and fulfilled. Allow yourself the chance to truly connect with someone you love or could love. Let the weekend’s supportive energy teach you whatever it has to share. Don’t assume you know what this will look like. It may not come in the form of holding hands at sunset while gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. Embrace however it unfolds. Trust that whatever happens Friday and Saturday is preparing you for even deeper healing on Sunday, but you have to let it in. The healing will only happen through acceptance and ease. Just go with the flow. It’s what you do best anyway.
Love Lesson: You are being held and supported and guided. Trust the flow.
