From dealing with family matters to writing your own vows and working things out with wedding vendors, the first week of 2015 proves to be a pretty productive one, indeed (for most brides anyway). Astrologer Gretchen Hidell is back again to break down what the stars have in store for you and your wedding in the new year!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may be dealing with a glitch that surprised you over the weekend. It's time to use your natural resourcefulness to come up with a plan on Monday. It could be beneficial to pick the brains of some recently wedded coworkers for potential solutions. Who knew your career could help you out with your wedding day!?
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
On Tuesday, your heart will be focused on your home and family. Carry some of that goodwill that developed over the holidays into your wedding planning. Be aware that on Sunday a small glitch could develop with out-of-town relatives. You may find yourself on the phone helping with travel accommodations.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Have you contacted your minister, priest, rabbi or justice of the peace yet? This is often one of the last things that brides tend to, however, it's one of the most important. With three planets inhabiting your Ninth House of religious/spiritual matters, you'll want to select the professional that will officiate your wedding now.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your sensitivity and intuition are high as you enter the week. During this time, it may be hard to decipher what other people's needs are versus your own. Your empathic nature will allow you to anticipate what your fiancé needs before he even says it though. Be gentle on yourself, and take a nice long bubble bath to soothe your fragile nerves.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
In the middle of the week, you get an extra boost when the Moon resides in your sign, Leo. This is your time to shine and put your best foot forward. Experiment with a new makeover, hairstyle or mani/pedi. After all, you want to sparkle on your special day; just be sure to try out your new look far enough in advance so that if you don't like it you can always change it before the big day.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Monday is your day to make really solid strides. Your ruling planet, Mercury, will form a positive sextile with Saturn, giving you just the discipline you need. This is the time to create checklists and meet with your wedding planner. Remember, it's the little things that make the big things happen.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Take your foot off the gas pedal this week, Libra. You've been making great strides lately and deserve to have a quiet reprieve. Yes, even brides-to-be deserve some downtime. Next week, you'll be back at it and ready to tackle any tasks or problems that come your way.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You may still be trying to recover from all of that intensity you felt last week. The Sun is still conjunct your ruling planet, Pluto, and things haven't let up just yet. There may have been a few things that came up for you that you still need to process. Remember: deep down you prefer to be a lover not a fighter.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Things continue to go your way on Monday, when Mercury forms a positive sextile with Saturn in your sign. This is a great time for you to communicate your needs with grace and ease. What's your wedding style? How many guests would you like to invite? What will your colors be? Will you write your own vows? Figure out what you want, talk it over and set some deadlines for yourself.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
The Sun and Pluto are conjunct in your sign, bringing intensity into the arena. Remember to pick and choose your battles this week. Why bother arguing over those centerpieces or the invitations when you could be focusing your attention on much more important things?
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You're really entering into "the zone" now that three planets are occupying your sign. On Monday, Mercury in Aquarius will give you just the communication skills you need to accomplish your goals. More than just being utilitarian, allow your words to express the romantic notions you have in your heart. Even you will be surprised at your newfound creativity!
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Toward the end of the week, you may hit a small speed bump when the Moon is in your opposite sign of Virgo. On top of that, on Friday, the Moon will oppose your ruling planet Neptune, adding more confusion. Make sure to read and re-read any contracts during this time, as there could be some miscommunications or misunderstandings.
