Hang in there, brides, because even though this week definitely won't be the easiest one, there are a lot of wedding planning lessons to be learned. Astrologer Gretchen Hidell gives you some guidance with her horoscopes below.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your ruling planet Mars, will be very active this week! Remember: planning such a big event is never without its ups and downs, and those may be exacerbated over the next several days. It's best to work on grounding and centering yourself right now. Deep breathing will do you a world of good.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You've been feeling something bubbling beneath beneath the surface lately that you can't quite put a finger on. You may be a little out of sorts this week, yet unsure as to why. Luckily, there's a planetary pileup in your 11th House of Friendships. Nobody expects you to plan your wedding all on your own, and this is a great time to seek support.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
People around you may seem, well, downright grumpy this week. Fortunately, you're flying under the radar and things are feeling okay on your end. With the planets highlighting your 10th House of Career, you may have been too busy to even notice. In fact, you may be experiencing difficulty allotting time to plan your wedding. Keep in mind that accomplishing one or two small things is better than nothing at all.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Something at work could cause a sudden disruption within your relationship and/or wedding planning this week. Not to worry though, as sometimes being sidetracked can be fortuitous, leading you down an alternate route that is much more scenic than the original one. Remain open and flexible, and you could find yourself in a better situation than you were previously.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
This is going to be a busy week, perhaps annoyingly so, Leo. On Tuesday, you'll be able to make great strides toward achieving a picture perfect ceremony, only to backpedal a bit on Wednesday. Perhaps a change of plans is in order? Remember, sometimes keeping things simple can be just as classy and elegant.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
On Saturday, your ruling planet, Mercury, will move forward in the zodiac into the sign of Pisces. This is a good time to focus on your partnership, and not so much the details of how everything will work out on your wedding day. Use this new cycle to reignite that spark with your partner, and in turn, it might help you fill in some missing puzzle pieces.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You may have been feeling uncharacteristically independent lately, but that doesn't mean that there are problems within your relationship. Everybody needs space in order to reconnect with who they are. Take some "me time," and go wedding shopping on your own. You'd be surprised at how peaceful things can be without your entourage's feedback.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Have you ever heard the expression the "devil is in the details?" You may be stuck in a quagmire of logistics that are quite frankly weighing you down right now. You need to look at your wedding day from a bird's eye perspective. It may be good to enlist a trusted comrade to help you gain clarity. After all, this is supposed to be fun, right?
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
You've had a real wave of planetary energy and activity behind you over the last month. Things are going to begin to slow down a little for you on Saturday, when Saturn turns Retrograde in your sign. You've gained a lot of ground recently in both life and wedding planning. Now it's time to review and reevaluate where you've landed.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
On Wednesday you could find yourself putting out a few fires because of rumblings along the home front. Who knows, maybe somebody's toes accidentally got stepped on as you were picking out your gown? Something will need to be smoothed over. Planning a wedding with family unfortunately involves navigating triggers and sensitivities.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You may be feeling quite lively this week, as Mars forms a tight conjunction with your ruling planet, Uranus, in your 3rd House of Communication. Siblings, neighbors and young people will be a source of inspiration as you plan your special day. Writing is highly favored right now, making this a wonderful time to pen your vows or work on invitation wording.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
As the bride-to-be, the spotlight is on you a lot right now, which may not be entirely comfortable for the typical Piscean. That energy only increases as Mercury moves into your sign on Thursday. Expect lots of busy activity and an increased demand for your attention. Time to put focus toward how you want to look on your special day. Try a makeover or mani/pedi this week!
