It's a brand new month, and for some brides the wedding planning will only ramp up this first week, while for others, things will slow down and family, friends or work issues will take center stage. Astrologer Gretchen Hidell has the lowdown with her horoscopes below.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Expect the unexpected on Monday! A friend could suddenly offer something that will make your life easier. Friendships in general are highlighted for you right now, and it's a good idea to enlist their help with your wedding plans.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may be playing catch up this week as things finally slow down just a little. This is a good time to review your wedding-planning list to ensure that you haven't overlooked or forgotten something important. Your Fourth House of home and family will be highlighted on Tuesday, so go ahead and take care of domestic endeavors as you catch your breath.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Mercury Retrograde is still moving backwards through your Ninth House of travel and spirituality. While we're currently in a time of review, you can research travel plans for your honeymoon. This isn't the best time to sign on the dotted line or to solidify anything though, but it definitely doesn't hurt to look!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Where is all your money going these days? It's true; weddings can be very expensive. Luckily, you could receive an unexpected windfall this week. It will be advantageous to you to use your frugal abilities to make the extra gain stretch as long as it can!
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You'll be in the spotlight on Tuesday, when the Full Moon illuminates your First House of self. Wedding planning may come to a halt as a culmination of efforts is realized. It's important to acknowledge those efforts and to take a moment of pause before moving forward. You'll have more opportunities to push ahead next week.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Although you're normally practical and grounded, there may be some challenges with keeping your feet on the ground this week. With the Venus/Neptune conjunction in your Seventh House of marriage and partnerships, you could be feeling quite romantic and somewhat idealistic. Just make sure that any planning you're doing for your big day is grounded in reality.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The Full Moon on Tuesday will be beneficial in both the areas of love and friendship. This is a great time to solidify wedding plans. Things will get even better as you move toward the weekend, when the Moon transitions into your sign. This is a great time to go out with your wedding party and get a mani and pedi with your bridesmaids!
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
This week may be a bit tricky for you, as there will be a balancing act between work and family. This is a good reminder that you're only one person and you may need to delegate some wedding duties in order to get everything accomplished. You'll feel better on Sunday, when your ruling planet, Pluto, has a lovely encounter with Venus, ramping up the romantic vibes.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Have you been feeling like you need some extra mental discipline to assist you with your wedding planning? On Thursday, Mercury will form a lovely sextile with Saturn in your sign and will be mirrored again on Saturday by the Moon. A great time for building foundations, goal setting and long-term planning!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Things could get quite passionate on Tuesday, when the Full Moon in Leo highlights your Eighth House of sexuality and deeper meaning. This is a great time to channel your inner vixen and incorporate something sexy into your special day. Your betrothed will have his eyes on you and only you.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
This is a big week for you, Aquarius! You started a new cycle back on January 20th that will come to a conclusion on Tuesday during the Full Moon. It seems as though you could do no wrong right now, however, reel it back just a bit on Friday when you could overpromise and under-deliver. You don't want to disappoint your wedding guests after all...
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Are all your dreams coming true? Well, maybe not all of them, but you certainly have a romantic and dreamy outlook this week while Venus/Neptune are conjunct in your sign. You could experience a serendipitous event that could lead you to just the right caterer, officiant or reception venue. Be ready to walk through any open doors the Universe presents to you!
