When in doubt, look to the stars to help you figure your wedding plans out! From what tasks to tackle and when to do them, life coach and intuitive astrologer Danielle Mercurio has your full forecast for the week ahead.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You're a ball of energy this week! Venus in Retrograde has really allowed you to assess your true heart's desires and you're beginning to see the benefits in owning up to what you need. When you take care of yourself, not only do you feel more rejuvenated, but others feel good as well. Continue to maintain this positive energy by nourishing yourself with healthy meals and juices.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You'll be feeling extra productive this week! Spend time working on those DIY wedding projects you found on Pinterest. While they may be a bit time consuming, you'll love seeing what you've accomplished afterward. Invite your bridesmaids to help, pop a bottle of champagne and make it a fun, collaborative effort.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your mental focus has totally peaked so maximize this energy as best you can. Grab your wedding to-do list and break it down into achievable tasks that you can easily get done each day. Just make sure not to bite off more than you can chew! Be intentional with your time and stay on task.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It's a great week to let your creative talents shine. Not only have you been impressing friends and family with your DIY skills, you're also just really enjoying being able to show off a more artsy side right now. Spend time sketching out how you envision the centerpieces to look or the ultimate design for your wedding cake. Your insight will be much appreciated.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Your social life is on fire, and the birthday celebrations have literally been nonstop lately. Luckily, this is a wonderful preview for the fun that's in store with your upcoming nuptials. You're feeling full of energy, thanks to Mars, the planet of action, in your sign. This allows you to look to the year ahead with renewed excitement! Take advantage of this shift, and sign up for a bridal boot camp or cycle class to keep the good endorphins flowing.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Now that Jupiter, the planet of luck and prosperity, is camping out in Virgo until September 2016, you have the Midas touch for all you desire! Mercury, the power of the mind and the planet that rules communication, will also be in your sign until the end of the week so make those vendor calls you've been putting off and prioritize items on your to-do list. Good luck and organization? This week is a goldmine for you!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The week starts off with Saturn, the planet of hard work, making a positive aspect to your sign. Try to cross off the challenging stuff on your to-do list, like gathering the addresses for your save-the-dates or following up with non-responsive vendors. Then take a load off this weekend, queue up the latest binge worthy TV series, order some takeout and relax with your spouse-to-be.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
The overwhelming feeling you've had throughout the summer is starting to fade and you're finally making progress again. This is the perfect time to de-clutter your house and get rid of stuff you don't use anymore so you can create space for wedding gifts. Donate as much as you can, and scan or shred any unnecessary documents. Update your registry with anything else you may need based on your recent purge.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sit down with your fiancé early in the week and smooth out any issues with your guest list, as you may be feeling more irritable by the week's end when the Sun squares off to your sign. Focus on one task at a time to eliminate any scattered feelings, and set clear boundaries. If you feel the need to vent, reach out to one of your trusted bridesmaids for support.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Lately, you've overwhelmed by everything you have to do before the big day. Remember that wedding planning is a team effort and not a sole responsibility. Divide up any items that are too big to tackle yourself, and don't be afraid to ask for help. In releasing some control, you're gaining much-needed peace of mind.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You've been doing an amazing job of balancing everyone's wedding expectations and not succumbing to peer pressure from friends and family. Continue to honor their opinions, however, also remain true to you and your partner's desires. Spend some time going over your budget and you may find a new opportunity for big savings.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You've been pulled in so many different directions this summer, yet things are finally starting to calm down a bit. It feels really good to experience what a satisfying work-life balance could be like. In turn, wedding planning is becoming more fun too. Take time this week to focus on your social life (a bridesmaids night out perhaps?) and events leading up to your big day.
