September starts with a moon in Capricorn upsetting our love lives. We want love, but are struggling to experience it. This discomfort is with us all weekend, even as the moon moves into Aquarius on Sunday. Sexual woes and miscommunication abound. This is all leading us into next week, when Mercury goes direct and a Pisces full moon comes to wash away all the negativity this weekend and eclipse season dug up. It’s time to purge what doesn’t serve our personal growth and prepare ourselves for a fresh start this fall. But for now, brace yourselves.
Find out how the planets' positions at your precise birth day, time, and place influence your personality and life circumstances.
Aries Weekend Love Horoscope
This weekend, you’re going to realize why you’ve been feeling so sexually empowered, but the answer doesn’t feel good. Here's why: You’ve been expressing your sexuality as an extension of your sense of self, not as an instrument of connection. Your ability to attract sexual partners and feel sexually satisfied has fueled your confidence and sense of freedom, but true, intimate partnership has been hard to find. You’ve been telling yourself that that’s okay, but on Saturday, as the Moon squares Uranus and inconjuncts Mars, you won’t be able to fool yourself into thinking that sex and freedom is all you need. Take a step back from anyone you’re involved with and check in with yourself. How have you been using sexual prowess to hide from true connection? And what do you really want?
Love Lesson: Don’t kid yourself into believing that settling is enough. It never is.
Taurus Weekend Love Horoscope
Love isn’t encouraging you to grow right now. It also isn’t connecting you with a deeper sense of emotional fulfillment. It’s coasting. To some extent, this is frustrating, but for you, a Bull who's suspicious of change, it’s also somewhat comforting. You feel divided between wanting more and being satisfied with what you have. This leaves you questioning what it is that you really want. With Venus at odds with the Moon, Neptune, and Pluto, romance is restrained. Major revelations are inhibited, but restlessness keeps tap, tap, tapping at you from the inside. It’s telling you that something just isn’t right. Try to relax for now. Answers will come in time, and there’s joy to be found until then. The rest will fall into place when it’s ready.
Love Lesson: If you don’t know what to do, do nothing. Be patient.
Gemini Weekend Love Horoscope
As Mercury travels right alongside Mars, you’ll be feeling assertive, and don’t be surprised if you catch yourself fantasizing more than usual. Sex is on the mind, and you’re not quite sure what to make of it. You aren’t comfortable feeling so consumed by your fantasies. You have other things you’d rather focus on, but there’s nothing wrong with being sexually curious and excited. Try not to shame yourself for any thoughts. Instead, embrace your increased interest in sexual connection, either with a partner or alone. Thinking about a sexual experience is likely all you need to feel satisfied right now, and there’s nothing wrong with any of that.
Love Lesson: An active fantasy life can help connect you to your deepest desires and the things you are maybe too afraid to share with anyone else.
Cancer Weekend Love Horoscope
Venus and all other planets have left your sign, and right now, you’re feeling a lot of pressure—to your partner, your goals, and yourself—lifting. But the moon, which you’re more connected to than anyone else, continues to move at its rapid rate This is the source of your general moodiness all the time, and this weekend is no different. The moon travels through Capricorn and Aquarius, conflicting with your basic watery nature. Expect to feel more grounded on Friday and Saturday, and more in your head on Sunday. All the while, your love life is a particular source of discomfort. Whether single or partnered, things aren’t sitting well with you right now. So much so that you’d rather ignore thinking about it for now, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Focus on what’s bringing you joy. It is your weekend, after all. Don't overthink it!
Love Lesson: You can often let a problem work itself out internally without drawing constant attention to it.
Leo Weekend Love Horoscope
You think you should be happy with your situation, but something is off. This "something isn't right" feeling causes you to distance yourself from any romantic partner. There’s nothing wrong with taking a little space, but be careful not to blame them. Also? Don’t assume they’re the source of your issue. With the moon and Chiron conflicting with Mars and Mercury, it’s far more likely that something has happened that’s left you feeling triggered. This issue is because of something in you that you’re being called to think about more closely. What is it that keeps your from feeling completely satisfied in your love life? What joy are you denying yourself?
Love Lesson: You deserve an incredible partner who loves you unconditionally and is fully available to be with you in all the ways that you want to be with them.
Virgo Weekend Love Horoscope
Your attention to detail is likely to satisfy any partner, and your usual sexual inhibitions and insecurities are curbed this weekend. It's anything goes. Despite this great energy, you’re just not feeling it on Saturday night. Despite your libido raring to go, the moon has you in a mood for no good reason, and you’ll likely prefer to be alone. So take a break, but on Sunday, put yourself out there. That’s when Mercury perfectly conjuncts Mars. You’ll receive a big cosmic boost to your sex appeal, so let yourself be out in the world meeting someone new or stay in with the person you already have. Either way, make use of this sexual energy and cast aside the lovey-dovey stuff in favor of giving into carnal cravings.
Love Lesson: Sometimes you’re in a funk for no good reason. It’s just the cycle of emotions. Not every little bit of discomfort is trying to teach you some grand lesson.
Libra Weekend Love Horoscope
You want love that feels easy and relaxed. You want there to be plenty of space for you to pursue everything you want while still having someone to share all of the tiny details with. The moon squares Jupiter. Jupiter opposes Uranus, and you feel stifled. Why does it seem like every time you’re in a relationship, the other person monopolizes your attention and holds you back? That’s a good question. Why does it seem that way? Key word: Seem. Look at how you foster this dynamic by sacrificing your needs in service of keeping the peace. And remember, your partner never asked you to sacrifice any of that.
Love Lesson: You create relationship dynamics based on what you think is possible, so believe that having everything you want is possible.
Scorpio Weekend Love Horoscope
The Capricorn moon moves across your ruling planet of Pluto while opposing Mars, your co-ruler. Your emotions are changing quickly throughout the weekend. You crave connection, but you also fear it. You’re tempted to hide away to keep your intense emotions to yourself. It’s this tendency that often drives a wedge between you and your partners. You get frustrated that they don’t understand where you’re coming from and make inaccurate assumptions about why you do the things you do, but at the same time, you’re not fully letting them in. You’re excellent at judging other people’s actions, but you’re likely not even aware of how you’re creating this divide in your relationships. Ask yourself, what are you hiding?
Love Lesson: In order to be known, you have to open the door and invite people inside.
Sagittarius Weekend Love Horoscope
Things aren’t coming easily this weekend, and you’re likely to feel negative about the direction you’re heading, even if everything looks good on paper. As the moon squares Jupiter, you’re uncertain how to make the most of this time to support your long terms goals. The way toward understanding is by connecting with someone intellectually and sexually. This will help anchor you to your path while your moods may lead you astray. Don’t take your moods so seriously. Take time to meditate and focus your mind so fleeting emotions don’t control you and keep you from enjoying what’s working. If you’re able to do that, you’ll be able to see that you’re actually in a great place, and any relationships is a part of that.
Love Lesson: Rise above your moods to keep a clear head and stay open to the people in your life.
Capricorn Weekend Love Horoscope
The Capricorn moon supports your sense of self and general well being, but right now, it just isn't supporting your love life. Maybe what you need this weekend is some time alone. The more you focus on any relationship, the less you’ll be able to enjoy these Capricorn energies. Have you been giving yourself the time you need to rejuvenate? If not, now’s your chance to do that. But remember, just because you enjoy this time alone doesn’t mean that you want to be alone. If you’re in a relationship, check in with your partner to make sure that they know this. Insecurities are likely to be running high, and any distance you take now may be misinterpreted.
Love Lesson: Giving yourself space from the people you love gives you a chance to miss them. This makes coming back together that much sweeter.
Aquarius Weekend Love Horoscope
At the start of the weekend, Uranus has you enjoying the physical side of things. This may present sexually or through other adventures. Keep any dates active. Go for a bike ride or a hike or even better, do something like rock climbing that asks you to use your head and your legs. Relieving physical energy through exercise is a great way to compensate for the moon conflicting Mars, and you’re likely to have a blast with anyone you choose to spend this time with. But don’t be surprised if on Sunday, when the moon enters Aquarius, you find yourself questioning if you actually had as much fun as you remember. And even if you did, you can’t imagine it going anywhere. Your mind is switched to the future and wanting love, and you’re feeling impatient. Breathe. Be present in your body. Invite your mind to slow down.
Love Lesson: When you place the pressure of the future on a relationship, it’s harder to enjoy the present.
Pisces Weekend Love Horoscope
Sorry, Fish: This is the start of a rough month of love. Neptune and Chiron are both in Pisces, and their energy is challenging Mars, Mercury, Venus, and the Sun. The good news is that while you’re unlikely to experience a lot of romantic fireworks, you also aren’t likely to miss them. You won’t be feeling particularly sexual. If you push yourself toward dating and romantic connections, you’re prone to disassociate from the present and even your own body. That’s because romance is triggering old wounds. Slow down now. Find ways to connect with your body. Treat yourself to a massage. Give yourself more alone time than usual. You’re working through something big, so have patience with yourself.
Love Lesson: People experience life through different lenses. Remember that because you and your partner are seeing something different, you both have something to show each other.
