As summer comes to a close, the pressure is really on to get things done, make key decisions and move fearlessly ahead with all your wedding plans. Luckily, astrologer Lisa Barretta, author of The Book of Transformation, gives us a sneak peek into the future; read on if you could use some guidance.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This week, finances may be getting a little out of hand and starting to overshadow the meaningfulness of the day. Don't be influenced by what others think you should or should not have at your wedding because it may cause you to go over budget big time. Put your Aries "will" into action, reclaim your power and get creative so that you stay within your means.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may face some resistance from a family member if you attempt to squeeze out the truth as to why they have been a little removed. You instinctively know that they may be feeling a little melancholy as you begin the next phase of your life and soon your wedding photos will be joining the collection of framed childhood memories.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You have successfully managed to coordinate all of the wedding-day essentials, and now it's time to move on to what you really like, which is organizing the entertainment. Jupiter transiting your third house of short trips entices you to club hop as you try to decide between a band, sultry singer or DJ for your reception. Whose rendition of the song "At Last" do you like best?
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The planets Mars and Saturn are close together in your fifth house of fun and festivities. Your bachelorette party may get a little wild. Hot bartenders pouring shots of tequila could give way to impulsiveness. But don't worry; one glance at that rock on your finger will snap you back to reality fast and have you wanting to behave.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Venus is still in your sign, making this the perfect time to experiment with wedding day hairstyles and makeup. Be daring and try out that gold eye shadow. Will it be ethereal goddess or aristocratic elegance? Regal Leo gals have a knack for pulling off the most unique looks.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You may be busy with correspondences this week as you sort out everything from the guest list to the honeymoon. Your ruling planet, Mercury, is right at home in the sign of Virgo and helps to give you clarity, focus and discernment when it comes to making practical wedding day decisions.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Retrograde Uranus is still moving backwards in your seventh house of relationships so keep your cool this week if your partner seems a little cranky. He may not want to discuss flowers and the menu for the cocktail hour especially since football is back in season. Pick what you want and have him sign off on your choices during halftime.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Mars and Saturn cursing through your sign may make you feel that you are at a perpetual crossroads when it comes to the "who, what and where" of your wedding day. One minute an impulsive, quick ceremony in front of a Justice of the Peace seems like the way to go and the next minute the traditional planet, Saturn, wants all the bells and whistles of a wedding day event. Scorpios prefer to get right on to the honeymoon.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
The week starts off with the Moon in your sign, which stimulates your intuition to pick up on any wedding drama. You had a feeling that there was a problem brewing between a couple of bridesmaids so suggest a girls' night out to settle any differences. After a few dirty martinis all is well. Cab anyone?
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You may have to do some damage control since a few guests figured out that they were on your "B" list. Pluto transiting your sign has a way of dredging up a few uncomfortable situations. Use diplomacy to solve them and things will be alright.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Crazy glitches are likely with Uranus moving backwards through your third house of communication and correspondences. Make sure you put the stamps on your invites before you put them in the mail. Double check all dress orders for you and your bridesmaids too, as you wouldn't want to order the wrong color and/or sizes.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
This week you're feeling a little over sensitive, and it won't take much to "flip your switch" and cause you to have a meltdown. Details concerning seating arrangements will leave you mentally exhausted. But don't fret; you'll feel much better as we move on toward the Full Moon next week.
