Wondering what wedding tasks, if any, you should cross off your to-do list this week? Don't worry, brides, astrologer Joan Porte has you covered. Below, her horoscopes and predictions for the week ahead. Looks like a break is in store for many!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You have a double dose of energy this week, as your ruler, Mars, is racing through the fiery sign of Leo. You're not normally one who needs more fire, but take advantage of it and put your Mars energy into overdrive. Finish all of those wedding tasks you've been putting off, particularly the small detailed stuff you don't always have the patience to tackle.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You're bursting with creative energy this week, making now the perfect time to design your dream invitations or get crafty with DIY projects. Have a cool idea for your cake or a unique late night snack suggestion? Tell your vendors what you want and how you want it, and you'll be amazed by the results.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Mercury is in quiet Virgo now so this is a good time to stop talking and start listening. No, really, you can do it. Virgo allows you to relax and consume some information for a change instead of always trying to push it out in the world. Take this time to listen and re-evaluate before charging forward with fresh wedding ideas.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
With your ruler, the Moon, moving into Aquarius you may find yourself a bit more high-strung than usual. However, use the trickster energy of Aquarius to think on the wild side for once. Not everything is rainbows and butterflies; add a little spice to your planning, and buy that sexy lingerie that makes you blush for the wedding night.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You have a tendency to go a bit overboard with things sometimes, a habit you'll want to reign in this week. Are you being too demanding, too self-centered? Remember: you can catch more flies with honey so turn on that Leo charm and spread some joy without the pressure.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Your ruler, the asteroid Vesta, is about to leave stormy Aries and move into more creative Taurus. You have a knack for organization so work with your dress designer, florist and other artsy vendors to get your plans for the big day in order.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
With Venus in retrograde, it's a great time to tackle your to-do list. However, there's no need to rush out to your vendors without having all your ducks in a row first. Retrogrades are a prime opportunity to dig deep and analyze what you really need and want before springing into action. Use the time wisely.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Feeling helpless or discouraged when it comes to the wedding lately? Take time to yourself this week to reflect and get to the real root of the problem. Is your fiancé rejecting every suggestion you make without contributing any ideas of his own, or are you simply taking on too much at once and stressing yourself out? Some deep thinking and me-time is just what the doctor ordered.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Your ruler, Jupiter, is currently hanging out in quiet Virgo. This is a good thing because that typical Sagittarius fire can cause burnout and you need downtime. Get any tough conversations out of the way this week, be it with family, your wedding planner or a bridesmaid. You have a way with words right now.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Wedding planning is supposed to be fun so if it feels like it's been nothing but work as of late it's time to take some time off and recharge. Grab your bestie and hit up that yoga class you've been meaning to try. It's not only good for your wedding body, but your brain and peace of mind as well.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You have a ton of stuff to get done, but be wary of making any big decisions this week, as you're not thinking all that clearly. Consult with your fiancé first and perhaps even your mom, maid of honor or wedding planner to get their opinions too. You'll be glad you did.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Design is on your mind this week, Pisces! Tap into your creative side and start designing the save the dates, wedding invitations or looking for inspiration for your wedding cake. Do your homework, and you'll be surprised by the Pin-worthy ideas you come up with.
