This week there's an opposition between the planets Mars and Uranus. What does that mean? Well, Mars is the God of War, and Uranus traditionally brings about freaky and unexpected circumstances. "Combine that energy with all of the attention that goes into planning a wedding, and you've got a recipe for a few blowups," points out Hilary Young of Astrologydating.com. "Understand your circumstances though, and as they say 'keep calm and carry on,' and you'll be able to pull everything off." Below, Hilary's horoscopes for the week:
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Parental and authority figures may be particularly vexing this week. Calmly stake out your territory and gently stand on it. Last minute clashes with your significant other can be resolved with a little diplomacy.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may find yourself running in a hundred different directions at once this week. Prioritize your time and put one foot in front of the other, and you'll get there on time. Your mate may not be as helpful as you'd like, though.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Sure, there are still plenty of details to take care of yet, but don't let your fears about them make you paranoid. You have a better grip on things than you realize. Take the time to take care of yourself. You're wearing a bit thin.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your secret weapon this week will be your ability to maintain good cheer. Smiling and nodding in general agreement and then doing things your way any way is a viable strategy. Learn to enjoy the spotlight.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You may find some drama flaring up in unexpected situations. Don't let that throw you off, and don't let it distract you from what your real priorities should be right now. Have some fun with your significant other. You deserve it.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
The comfort and support of others can be a tremendous help at any time but most especially now. You have resources at your disposal you may not even be aware of. Your mate may seem frazzled by it all. However, don't let that throw you off!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
No, you weren't imagining it: Things are pretty hectic for you this week. Just relax and be your lovely self and everything should turn out just fine, provided you managed to stick to your budget.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
This week, you may find yourself wondering why you put up with so much nonsense in your life. Get in touch with your higher self and your higher purpose, and the details will sort themselves out. Keep a particular eye on financial matters.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Normally you are pretty independent, but let's remember that you aren't alone in all of this, okay? Your closest friends can be especially helpful this week. Your mate may be a surprising source of ideas and inspiration.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
The big focus for you this week is on partnership, and not just because you're getting married. Your mate might seem a little restless with things, but it will pass. Take some quiet time for yourself, and you'll be rewarded with better results.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
There are a thousand little details to pin down for a wedding, but it's that thousand and first one that always seems to get you. Make that list, and check it twice! Don't fret over last-minute complications, just deal with them.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Relax. Seriously, just relax. This is a good week for it, and things will get crazier later on, so you'll thank me later if you give yourself a break this week. You may need to stop and remind yourself of what's most important to you and what isn't.
