Summer is finally in full swing, but that doesn't mean you can slack off on your wedding planning (sorry, brides!). We consulted life coach and intuitive astrologer Danielle Mercurio to get the scoop on what to cross off your to-do list this week.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your need for personal space may be at an all time high, as Uranus continues to move through your 1st house. You've been so involved with planning the wedding lately and trying to cater to everyone else's needs. Stop and remember that this is your day with your soon to be spouse and put yourself first for once. Getting caught up in everyone else's opinions will only leave you feeling burnt out. So even if your mother-in-law scoffs at the notion of chocolate fondue at the dessert bar, if you want it, you can have it!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You've always been the practical one when it comes to finances. You like to enjoy the finer things in life, however you also know when to administer some restraint. Venus conjuncts with Jupiter mid-week, causing your spending to go into overdrive. Try to think through any major upgrades you're considering and if it's really worth it in the end. If you're still feeling super impulsive, hit up your registry and add in those luxe pieces you just can't resist!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Now that you've finally moved past the shadow period post Mercury retrograde, you can give yourself permission to exhale. While Mercury, which is your natal ruling planet, is still hanging out in your sign, use this as an opportune time to regroup with your wedding planner and see what areas that were previously put on hold may be addressed. Finalize those annoying details stat so they don't have to linger on your mind and create anxiety as you gear up for your big day. Focus on the fun and sociable aspects of your wedding and the rest won't seem as daunting.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Mars, the planet of taking action, has been holding steady and giving you a surge of energy lately. Embrace this motivating flow, and allow yourself to continue to come out of your shell by stating your wants and needs upfront. Everyone adores your generous nature and will be more than happy to help out. Kick back and relax over the weekend, and let someone else man that new grill you got from the registry!
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Thanks to Venus, you've got a whole lot of passion this week. Why not invite your bridesmaids out for an empowering pole dancing class? It will allow you to unleash your inner goddess and feel more connected to your body. This is also a great time to book any travel, such as flights or hotels, as the numbers are in your favor.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
When it comes to wedding planning, you're a total natural! The best part is you're learning to lighten up and have fun as you go. Continue this trend of enjoying the process and being more present before it passes you by. You're also figuring out how to be a better team player and understand the value of your bridesmaids and groomsmen. This holiday weekend, take a break from queuing the perfect wedding reception playlist, and let loose with family and friends.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Big decisions to make this week? Follow your gut instinct, and go for it, brides. At the end of the day, no one will really remember if you went with flower arrangements or candle centerpieces. If the groomsmen don't like your choice of bowtie, well, they'll just have to deal with it, won't they? The only opinions that really matter are your own so keep that in mind.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
The stars are shining down on you, Scorpio, and it's definitely been a long time coming. Even those moments where you might feel your sense of control slipping or you're emotionally on edge, you can just smile and trust it will pass. You've dealt with far bigger hardships and have learned the lessons necessary to rely on your own strength. Now, as you embark on a new chapter with your other half, you know that anything and everything is possible!
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
With the Moon in your sign at the beginning of the week, you'll be feeling high on love and life! Let it continue to lift you up as you feel the support of not only your partner to be but that of friends and family as well. Implement practices with your partner to deepen your bond, such as meditating together or taking private dance classes to wow your wedding guests on the dance floor!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
The Full Moon moves into your sign on July 2nd, reminding you of everything you've cultivated in the last six months. Loosen some of your grip, and let others lend a helping hand. When you let go of the need for perfection, you'll come to find that everything is perfectly imperfect. This Full Moon also governs your health sector, so maybe wait until next week to sample wedding cakes.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
While you may be tripping out over your wedding budget and the maxed out guest list, this isn't the time to totally lose it. In those moments you feel overwhelmed, find a trusted person to talk to, like your maid of honor. The 4th of July weekend is a great opportunity to be near the water and with people you feel emotionally connected to, as the Moon will be transitioning through your sign.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
A new career opportunity may distract you from your upcoming nuptials and even setting a firm wedding date. As exciting as your new business venture may be though, it's wise to stay equally committed to the planning process. Divide your passion proportionally so you can stay engaged in both. Your ruling planet Neptune is also retrograding, reminding you that all of your dreams can come true.
