Prepare yourself for intense highs and lows. Venus moves into Sagittarius. Mercury turns retrograde, and a Gemini full moon opposes the Sagittarius sun. Sagittarius and Gemini both push you to explore new things, and with Venus’ transition, this is amplified in love. But in order to truly grow during this season of expansion, the way you think needs to change. Your limiting beliefs are holding you back. Mercury in retrograde forces you to reevaluate your thoughts. And with Mercury conjuncting Saturn, your current belief systems feel like a prison. It will take weeks to fully process all of this, but this weekend’s Gemini moon kicks it off with a powerful release. Release the thoughts that don’t serve you, especially the incompatible ideas. Do you want a partner but find yourself drawn to troublemakers? It’s tensions like these that are best resolved now.

Aries Weekend Love Horoscope
You may want to consider your lover when it comes to sorting through your life and taking the next step, but right now, you are actually being called to prioritize yourself. Uranus in Aries trines Mercury and Saturn and opposes Mars in Libra. What choices would you make if you were the only person whose opinion mattered? Stay true to yourself. This could create friction in any relationship, but before you can start making choices for another person, you first need to know what choices you’d make just for yourself. You need to be aware of the compromises and sacrifices you’re making so if and when you choose to make them, you are making an empowered choice. Now more than ever, don’t sacrifice your sense of self.
Love Lesson: Put on your oxygen mask before assisting anyone else with theirs.
Taurus Weekend Love Horoscope
A Taurus moon guides your ruler - Venus - into Sagittarius. This helps ease you into a challenging time. Sagittarius wants you to change. It won’t accept your habits, your routines, or your continuing to choose the same things again and again. There is more pleasure, more excitement, and more growth to experience. Doing the same old, same old will not work anymore. The moon opposes Jupiter - Sagittarius’ ruler - in Scorpio. This is a reflection of how much you resist your growth, but it’s also your ticket to experiencing it. Embrace Scorpio energy to find comfort in Sagittarius. Explore spiritual questions and ideas. Explore sensual, sexy moments. Philosophical and spiritual questions will guide you toward growth and greater love.
Love Lesson: Resistance only slows the inevitable. Love will find its way.
Gemini Weekend Love Horoscope
It’s time to let go of that old love, that old pain, and that personal history that has twisted and polluted your mind with habits that keep you from getting where you want to go. They’ve served their purpose, but now they just reinforce walls between you and your freedom. You’re close to love, but you’re not ready yet. Now is the time to get super selfish. To prioritize your needs, your wants, and your super awesome wild self. This is not bad. This is good. This will help you differentiate between the ideas that are yours and the ones that are droning on from another time. This Saturday or Sunday, pray for this. Ask for help in clearing your mind and opening your heart to your highest purpose and your greatest love. Now is your time, Gemini.
Love Lesson: Let go of the security blankets that actually trap you.
Cancer Weekend Love Horoscope
The Gemini moon sends your moods swinging as you trip over your words. You struggle to communicate your feelings, and you feel misunderstood. But are you really frustrated by other people or by yourself? Your heart is torn between two things. You want the great love and family and a comfortable home, but you also long for a career and satisfying work outside of just family. Remember that there’s nothing wrong with finding fulfillment in love. Having a partner is important to you. Align yourself with that desire but don’t let it make you settle for the first person who comes along and says "I love you.” You have a tendency to give to others and not enough to yourself. This is what keeps you from aligning yourself with your ambitions.
Love Lesson: Find a way to satisfy every part of yourself and ditch your regrets.
Leo Weekend Love Horoscope
It’s easy to pursue your own adventure at the expense of others. The sun squares Neptune, and the Gemini moon convinces you that your thoughts are the same as your feelings. Don’t lose touch with your heart. The fiery energy of Sagittarius has you wanting to go, go, go. You might find love along the way, but you won’t be drawn to hold onto it. And frankly, you’re just not thinking clearly. You may get sucked into a project now that seems like a great idea, but by the end of the month you’ll be wondering what the heck you were thinking. This can go for new relationships, too. This weekend is not the best time to start something, but you’ll be feeling needy and desiring the attention. Go out and flirt and have some fun, but leave it at that.
Love Lesson: Act from your heart instead of your head.
Virgo Weekend Love Horoscope
Mercury conjuncts Saturn and turns retrograde. The voice in your mind is chatting up a storm and asking if you’ll ever find love. “Maybe you won’t. Maybe it’s just not meant for you.” Shhhhh. Quiet that voice. You are a brilliant, loving, observant, earthy lover, and I have a feeling that love is right behind you, taking the form of an old lover as well as a future love who’s trying to catch up with you. Your negative thoughts keep you running from them. You’re still holding onto old loves. You have to sever that bond. For real this time. The torch you’re holding is kept buried deep inside, keeping you warm, and you’re afraid to extinguish it. You’re afraid that means it’s really over and then you’re really alone. Be alone. Be free. Open yourself to the lover you’ve yet to meet. They’re coming for you.
Love Lesson: Make space for love by saying goodbye to old romance.
Libra Weekend Love Horoscope
Mars in Libra sextiles Saturn and Mercury. Soothe your confused mind by leaning on the people in your life, especially any romantic partner or lover. You may not feel immediately inclined to do this. You may think it’s too soon or that it will make you appear weak and unattractive, but you’re wrong. If you allow yourself to be vulnerable, your bond with your lover and with yourself will strengthen. No one has it all together all the time, and your momentary sadness, anger, or confusion is not weakness. You are not a head case, and by sharing your troubles, you are not creating unnecessary drama and conflict. To achieve true harmony, you must honor your feelings and open up. Vulnerability is the path, always.
Love Lesson: Your feelings are valid.
Scorpio Weekend Love Horoscope
Venus moves out of Scorpio, and things lighten up a bit in your love life. All intensity all the time isn’t great on any relationship, so this move will feel like a welcome relief. And while the sun, Mercury, and Venus are now out of your sign, Jupiter is sticking around and continuing to give your life a general boost. This weekend, the Gemini full moon amplifies moodiness in everyone, but you know how to handle this. Cut your lover some slack and strive to be the calm in the storm, but make sure to work on releasing your own moodiness as well. Bring balance to your emotionality in order to continue to expand and enjoy this Jupiter year, and to allow your love life and everything else to match the world you see in your dreams.
Love Lesson: Whatever you truly desire, you can achieve.
Sagittarius Weekend Love Horoscope
The energy is focused on you! And in order to open yourself to the great love headed your way, you have to work through your limiting ideas. Saturn and Mercury are working overtime on you. Life may feel pretty unpleasant this weekend, and don’t be surprised if you want to isolate. Give yourself permission to indulge this urge. Don’t enter any commitments. You need some time to process. If you feel ready to spend time with your lover, you are likely in for some great sex, but emotions will be running high, and passions are likely to escalate into fighting. Gemini likes to make mountains out of molehills. Take note of how your mind does this to you, and just say “no, thank you. Everything will be fine.” Because it will!
Love Lesson: Distance makes the heart go fonder. Too much distance makes the heart forget.
Capricorn Weekend Love Horoscope
Your ruler Saturn conjuncts Mercury. Communication is everything. It’s time to clean house - in your mind. What limiting, self-defeating beliefs are you still lugging around? In order for love to continue to grow, you need to get real about what you want and ditch the stories that are keeping you from getting it. Do you think all men are players who are out to get you? Do you think all women are trying to stifle your freedom? Move beyond traditional negative stereotypes, and look your lover in the eyes. Who are they? See them as existing outside of your fear that all relationships ultimately fail. See them for who they truly are. And see you two - as a couple - for who you really are.
Love Lesson: Every relationship is unique. Honor this.
Aquarius Weekend Love Horoscope
How have you been stifling yourself because you fear failure? You were never meant to cling to the traditional way of life. You are meant to innovate and soar. Lean into this. Embrace your independent thinking and release the part of you that fears your way isn’t good enough. When you do this and are truly honest with yourself, what do you want? And what role does a relationship play in this? Have you been playing it safe with your lover or are they someone who will support your courageous, innovative self? You need this last one. As long as you surround yourself with scared voices that say “no” before they even stop to think, you will silence yourself. It’s time to step into your power and give this world all of your gifts. Help raise us up. It’s what you want to do. It’s what you were born to do.
Love Lesson: Find a lover who makes you feel free.
Pisces Weekend Love Horoscope
Neptune and the moon square the sun. You’re afraid of moving onto new projects and new people. But it’s time to admit how you truly feel. Get critical and let go of any self-deception. Don’t beat yourself up, but also don’t be too easy on yourself. Whenever the voice inside says it’s time to change. You quickly counter with “but where you are now is totally okay. Don’t worry. I love you.” Your self love is admirable, but don’t use it as a way to silence yourself and stifle your growth. That’s not loving at all. Until you make the change that is bubbling underneath, authentically loving feelings will elude you. Where are you unhappy? Where are you dissatisfied? Vow to embrace change and let go of the habits that are no longer fostering your growth.
Love Lesson: Keep exploring and finding new paths to love.
