With Mercury turning retrograde on the 18th, you can bet that communications will be at the forefront this week. From how to negotiate with vendors to opening yourself up to new ideas, astrologer Madame Zolonga breaks down what the stars have in store for you and your wedding plans.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Take a lap around the block this week any time you're tempted to start a war of words with a vendor, sibling, officiant or troublesome travel agent. Mercury's retrograde in your Communication Zone says there's more to the story on both sides. Patience is your ally now while you sort through your options and alternatives. Walk it off!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
The New Moon in Taurus on Monday helps you clear out any emotional hangovers from the last month. Do you have your heart set on a certain venue? You may need to engineer a new solution to that. Review your budget, materials and have a talk with your fiancé and parents. Thursday brings a little emotional catharsis. You don't have to carry the whole show!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Don't make any important decisions before Friday if possible. All week you'll be in the thick of seemingly last minute switch-ups that confound others and force you to refine your budget or alter your game plan. But change-adept, light-footed and clever as you are, the key turns in your hands. Humility and honesty opens all the right doors for you now.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Are you guided by a hidden logic or language that few can understand, or is it just a nagging insistence? Resist the instinct to draw back and coast on silent intuition. Keep all negotiations above board and in the clear, which will keep bickering and meddling to a minimum between you, the caterer and your mother. Make a date Thursday night for the romantic release you need right now.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You're juggling a few things this week, so stay lively. No sulking allowed. What's the game plan for your guest list? It may need some revisions. Friends you thought were available may suddenly bow out, and money from Mom could temporarily go cold. It will all work it out, but probably not by the end of this week.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Take a time out this week before you throw in the towel. Don't overthink a situation that simply may need more information prior to signing off. Stay alert for new facts, and you'll get a clearer idea of what's really at stake by the end of the week.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Looking for a bargain? It might be online, but be sure to triple-check the fine print first. All may not be what it seems. Same goes for honeymoon plans. Kyour opinions to yourself for now. Others will reveal themselves all too readily. You're taking notes and exuding graciousness.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Fights over who's financially responsible for what could threaten to send you off course this week, just as the New Moon reboots your Partnership Zone. Make love, not war. If you're on a tight budget, continue revising what's necessary. Mercury retrogrades, and new resources (a generous relative or inheritance?) might unexpectedly pop up. Otherwise, ask or you won't receive.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Considering new catering options or vendors? Be careful, as Mercury retrogrades in your Partnership Zone and crosses communications. Is there a difference of opinion or conflicting spending habits? An old flame back on the scene? Here's where your communication skills as a couple get put to the test. You have valuable insights, but right now you need to be a better listener.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Ask a million questions this week, and you'll suss out options that could lead to a better plan than you already have. Even if it's as simple as taking your vitamins! New help and new health awaits your inquisitions. Revise your play list and try a new work out in preparation for your big day. Thursday's an emotional revelation with depth. Be open to receive.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Looking for new digs? There's a seed of possibility, but if it's a big investment, you'll wade through a lot of "what ifs" before mid-June. If kids come with your new coupling, keep communication key. Oppositions clear by Friday. The antidote Saturday says, get your play on! Banter and board games? All the better!
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You're over expensive beauty gimmicks this week, so keep your credit cards close to your chest through mid-June. Meanwhile, your mind's at home, at last. Before you invest there, organize your mail pile and receipt basket. All those little details aren't as minor as you may think. Who knows, you could discover a hidden treasure or a family token, perfect for your big day.
