Planning a wedding can be a ton of fun, especially when you've got the stars on your side, right? From picking out wedding gifts to creating a dreamy flower wall, let astrologer Joan Porte help guide you through this week's big decisions. Below, her horoscopes for the week ahead.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your ruling planet, Mars, is in passionate, secretive Scorpio right now, making it the perfect time to purchase a hot little gift to surprise your groom on your wedding night or on the honeymoon. Think sexy lingerie, or go ahead and book a boudoir photoshoot with a professional photographer.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Lucky you! Your sign is ruled by the goddess of love, Venus, which is currently transiting fiery Leo. Leo loves the spotlight and although Taurus is a bit more reticent, there really is no better time than now to shine. Say yes to a drop dead gorgeous dress and veil that'll have all eyes fixated on you as you walk down the aisle. This is your moment; own it.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your fast moving ruler, Mercury, is in quiet Virgo for a few days. This is typically a tough transit for multi-tasking, chatty Gemini, but try to take advantage of Virgo's inward ways to see what you've been missing. It's probably the sound of your partner's voice, right? Really listen to what he has to say. Ask yourself if it's been a 50/50 planning process or if you've been off doing 1000 different wedding things without taking his needs into consideration.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Ruled by the Moon, you're always at risk of being overwhelmed by your emotions. With the Moon hugging close to the Sun right now, it's much easier for you to connect to your inner feelings. Take a few deep breaths and assess whether or not your wedding plans are on track because you want them to be or if you're simply trying to please everyone else at the expense of your own happiness. Then don't be afraid to speak your mind before it's too late.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Leo women may know what they want, but this week, with the Sun's recent incursion into hypercritical Virgo, it's important to keep that Leo Bridezilla tendency in check. You don't need to send your bridesmaids' back to the shoe or dress store another time, do you? Breathe. You and your entire bridal party will look stunning no matter what happens.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Hiding away at home is much easier for you than all of this elaborate planning, You hate being the center of attention and if it were up to you the wedding would be in a small garden and the guests would nibble on gluten free cookies instead of cake. Hey, isn't your wedding supposed to be up to you? Well with your ruler, the asteroid Vesta, now in Scorpio you can make that happen. Tap into your inner Scorpio strength to make yourself heard and have the wedding you want!

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Daughter of Venus, your ruler is near expansive Jupiter right now so do let your imagination run wild. Want to create a dreamy flower wall? Go for it. Feel the need for more champagne? Why not? Go big, but don't get too crazy or your bank account will really feel the pain when the bills start rolling in.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Pluto is in retrograde this week, making Scorpio more secretive than usual. Please remember to let people into your planning process, as you can't do it all yourself and your friends and family certainly can't read your mind. If not, you can start that downward cycle of brooding that nothing is getting done and get even more internalized. Make a plan and then as the song says, "express yourself."
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
This bride-to-be is on fire! With your ruler, Jupiter, in Leo (another fire sign), everyone better watch out. You are ready to get this planning done and over with so the real party can begin. Keep in mind that too much fire can lead to some scorching though. Take a time out to relish the journey and not just plow ahead full steam. Not everyone has your stamina so your maids will definitely appreciate a spa break just about now to recoup their energy.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Your ruler Saturn is conjunction Mars and that is always a mixture that can lead to explosions. It's the classic case of cold (Saturn) and hot (Mars) colliding. You are the slow and steady wins the race type of woman so I would warn any vendor trying to push their ideas on you to step away before the goat goes on a rampage. Just walk away from the pushy ones; you don't need any help making up your mind.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Uranus is caught up in a funky disharmony with Pluto right now causing havoc all over the world. Having a ruler in turmoil can make you a bit more edgy than normal. Since Aquarius always dances to her own unique tune and doesn't often listen to advice, there can be some stressful times ahead. Open your ears and heart to ideas you are receiving and honestly assess why you are feeling the need to reject them all without giving them proper consideration.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Dreamy, dreamy, dreamy, that is you Pisces. However, with Neptune in retrograde now and in the Piscean constellation, you might be too caught up in your fairytale. Set a realistic budget and a timetable that you will stick to. I know facts and figures aren't as fun as your reverie's but you have got to get it done!
