While some brides may need to take a break from wedding planning to focus on their fiancé this week, others will have the opportunity to knock some much needed stuff off of their to-do list. Astrologer and women's health and success coach Jennifer Racioppi offers up her best celestial guidance.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your ruler Mars is finally moving full steam ahead. This is good news since the first seven months of the year were wrought with a Mars Retrograde that slowed things down for you. Now, with Mars in Scorpio, you are sure to feel things pick up in the romance department. Channel this energy toward planning your honeymoon. Think sexy, and have fun mapping out the most romantic vacation of your life.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
With your ruler Venus currently hanging out in Cancer, your thoughts are on nesting. This serves you well right now, as Jupiter, the Sun and Mercury are all in your fourth house of home and family. This week, spend time picking out your bridal registry. Keep an eye on the details while still choosing pieces and sets you'll want to pass on to your children some day.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Watch out Gemini; your ability to communicate gets super charged this week, as your ruler Mercury moves from the security oriented sign of Cancer into the gregarious and playful energy of Leo, cozying up to the luckiest planet in the sky, Jupiter. It's time to think through those wedding vows and possibly even write some of your own. This is a good week to talk with your fiancé about anything on your mind regarding the big commitment!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
With Venus in your sign right now you have an extra dose of charm. Social graces bless you, making this a great time to connect with the girls in your bridal party. Let them know how much you appreciate them and spend some time shopping for a thank you gift for your 'maids. In addition to having the charm of Venus, you'll have an extra dose of glow when it comes to beauty too. This is the week to finally nail down your hair and makeup for the wedding as trips to the salon will prove fruitful.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
With the luckiest planet in the solar system, Jupiter, hanging out in your sign, you're more than ready to plan your party. You're brimming with bright ideas to make your wedding day the most special day of your life. Any ideas for favors? This is your week to really nail it. Spend some time on Pinterest or any other place that sparks your creativity for inspiration.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Jupiter, Mercury and Venus are all in your eleventh house of friendship now, which means it's a wonderful time to start thinking through your invite list and whittling it down to the ones you really want there on your big day. If you're past the phase of determining your guest list, it's time to think about seating arrangements. Where do you want everyone to sit? How do you want to decorate your tables? You have a natural understanding right now about how to organize groups of people so put it to good use.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Put your party planning hat on, and get ready to fire up your innate sense of style. But before you go indiscriminately spending money, you'll want to triple check your budget first. With Mars and Saturn hanging out in your second house of money this week, you might be prone to overspending. Though Mars may encourage indulgences, prudent Saturn will make sure that you'll make choices you won't regret.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
With Mars in your sun sign right now, it's time to pick out that sexy lingerie you want to wear on your honeymoon. Don't hold back either, as you are more than ready to unleash your sexiest self. Things can heat up in the bedroom this week. Use this time to fire up your sex life and tease him with what's to come after the vows.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius, it's time to say what you mean and mean what you say. With your ruler Jupiter hanging out close to the sun this week, all eyes are suddenly on you. Use this attention to articulate exactly what you desire as you plan your wedding. Don't hold back; assert yourself, and ask for the specific thing that you want.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Take some time to reconnect with your fiancé this week. Dig deep and enjoy some intimacy as well. You've been working hard and deserve to relish in the love. Plus, with Venus in your house of partnership and marriage now, your relationship should be your number one priority anyway. Plan an extra-special date night and remember to live in the moment. You'll feel much more refreshed and ready to get back to the planning afterward.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
With Jupiter, the planet of good luck, fortune and abundance, recently taking up residence in your seventh house of marriage and partnership, you cannot go wrong! Allow yourself tap into your creativity as you plan your big day. You have permission to be entirely you so don't fret about pleasing anyone else (except your fiancé of course) right now. Unleash your inner artist and make your vision a reality.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Now that Mars has moved from air sign Libra into the water sign Scorpio, you may be feeling a bit more sensitive. Trust your feelings and let them guide you forward. Your intuition is strong right now; use it to direct you through the wedding planning process. Venus is in your house of romance, so have fun and play with your honey too.
