If you've been feeling a little lazy about the whole wedding-planning thing, this is your week to come alive, brides! Well, for most, anyway. Find out what the stars have in store for you and your big day, courtesy of astrologer Gretchen Hidell, who shares her horoscopes below.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Expect a sudden surge of energy this week, Aries. Mercury will move into your sign on Monday, starting a new month-long cycle. This will certainly increase communication and activities with friends. Then on Saturday, the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse will bring your romantic life front and center. There will be fresh energy injected into your relationship that will help your wedding day to be even more romantic.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
On Tuesday, Mars will move into your sign, boosting your vitality and energy. This may be just the oomph you were looking for in order to have the stamina to complete your wedding planning. Put all that energy towards beautifying and designing a beautiful big day, and you will be on the right track!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your ruling sign, Mercury, will move into the sign of Aries, entering your 11th house of friendships and groups of people. This will be a month-long cycle that will increase the amount of time spent with pals, which could be beneficial to your wedding plans. Rally the troops; they are just waiting for your instruction.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
On Saturday, the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse will be very powerful for you, highlighting your 4th house of home and family. It may be good for you to stay at home over the weekend and secretly plan your big day behind the scenes as you take a much-needed break. Refuel and recharge so you can get back to your wedding plans full time next week.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Luck will be on your side on Thursday as the Sun forms a positive trine with Jupiter. Your confidence will be at an all-time high too, giving you the boost you need in order to accomplish those wedding plans you've been putting off. Be sure to say what you mean and mean what you say over the weekend, when the Full Moon/Eclipse will be testing your ability to communicate clearly.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Much of your attention will be focused on resources this week. Whenever two people join their hands in marriage, it's normal to think about pooling your resources together. This is a great week to make a financial investment that will have a positive long-term impact, like buying a house or opening a retirement account.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
A romantic union can have many positive effects on a person's life. However, sometimes it can also be a little jarring as you become accustomed to sharing your life with someone else. This week you may find that the very thing you're afraid of may be the very thing you needed all along! Be open and allow these profound changes to accelerate personal growth.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
On Tuesday, Mars will transition into Taurus, entering your 7th house of partnerships as well. If there are still some things you must take care of before your big day, this will give you the energy you've been looking for! While Mars will increase your prenuptial activities, it could also increase your stress, and thus, the propensity to fight. Realize that your partner is on the same team as you and things will be perfect.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Commitment will be forthcoming on Thursday, when you receive a bit of information from your loved one that will help you to solidify your wedding plans. Whether you nail down a date, confirm your reception space or find out when your invitations will be ready, these are all things that will help you to set your plans in motion!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Your personal resolve may be tested this week as you face unexpected changes to your plans. On Monday, these changes will be fortuitous and could actually improve your romantic life significantly. However, the Full Moon over the weekend could bring up boundary issues with a family member. Remember: Making concessions is one thing, but allowing someone to walk all over you is another.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Planning a wedding can be tricky, especially when you're trying to please the entire family. Expect the next seven days to be busy, as you do your best to juggle expectations and responsibilities. Keep in mind that your parents and siblings are just trying to help.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Due to your empathic nature, you may feel like you're on an emotional roller coaster, as you attempt to separate your vision for your wedding day from everyone else's. Not to worry though. Your intuition will be strong around this time so allow it to guide you in the right direction.
