This week, it's all about that money, honey! From being upfront and honest about your budget to finding the absolute best bargains, astrologer Madame Zolonga dishes the details on what the stars have in store for you and your wedding plans.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Trouble on the home front, or conflicts with a more conservative family member who prefers "the old way" of doing things, ease after the 8th. Take nothing for granted right now, particularly if there's a contract with your name on it. Your personal spark will return at the end of the week for a full month of awesomeness and productivity.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
With your ruling planet still in reverse, it's hardly the time to splash cash on a big-ticket item, but unusual bargains or cost-effective creative thinking could solve both a long-standing challenge and satisfy your partner's budget concerns. Looking for accord? Mark the 6th for a heart-to-heart. You're serious the 7th, even if there's a little heat in the air. New idea? Hope on those details, brides.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Home is where your head is by the 7th. First, you'll have to lay your cards on the table though, particularly if design is on your mind or you need a headcount for the caterer. The flair with which you deliver the message might be as important as the facts. Praise helps too. You may be less defensive about money by the week's end, but keep a sharp eye on your receipts, anyway.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your mood is on full display for everyone to see this week so mind how you manage the challenges you may face. Someone could accuse you of investing in a personal vanity project, rather than a marriage. Take a serious look at your spending, and let more patient friends help you see the other party's point of view or soothe out any rough edges. By the 7th, cooler heads will prevail.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Come the weekend, you'll feel more like pushing yourself forward, but until the 8th employ pro-level caution. It's a big week, and you want to make a big statement. Purge the wardrobe? Try a new hairdo? Careful. Something deeper is at stake. Could it be a family conflict? Doubts about your wedding dress? Or money issues? Rebellion's tempting now, but rash words or deeds may backfire toward the end of the month. Embrace your best, and forget the rest.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Your season of private pursuits ends when your partner planet, Mercury, steps into your own sign on the 7th. A handful of hidden plans need to be shared. It's up to you to speak now or forever hold your peace if you want these dreams realized. However, keep careful notes and require all bids in writing because a blunder on the vendor's end this week will be unusually costly for you in the future.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The goodwill you've gathered this past year from helpers will last longer if you're scrupulously careful now with any money or talent offered for the big day. A courageous conversation is due that could benefit the future foundation of your marriage, so don't be coy about your finances or values. Your hubby-to-be soon gets a break from the office, so plan low-key group events for after the 8th.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You'll need to make a judicious compromise early in the week. How you feel about yourself verse how you'd like to be seen is at odds right now. Don't let someone talk you into a bigger package or more flamboyant staging than you can afford or are comfortable with. By the end of the week your attention shifts to practical matters that suit your managerial mind, and a month of dramatically visible effort begins.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
New horizons call this week, but you need to check your wallet and values first. Anything that might compromise your physical or financial health must be rethought. Opportunities abound, however, its important to gather all the facts. Likewise, you'll want to ensure any deposits made are of the refundable sort right now. Mid-August brings lucky professional contacts. A reference or tip could arrive late week.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You may be reshuffling and trimming your guest list, and with that challenge could bring some crabby complaints from a loved one who's worried about hurting feelings. What's really at stake is conflicting investment management styles. Bring a professional with a wider perspective on board if you have to. A marriage and money guru will help heaps. Call around after the 7th, as a practical-minded advisor's available mid-month.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Lessons about public performance abate after September, but until then, keep your composure and vibe super mature even if your significant other appears to be slinking away from agreements. You both may need a break from a heady year of big and bold moves, so allow each other a little private time. It's preventative care, not punishment. After the 7th, focus on practical concerns wherever joint funding is at stake.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
The detail drudgery and endless errands right now feel as if you'll never get away from it all. That will change by mid-August though. Look for a preview of that promise after the 7th, when your partner or maid of honor gets back to you with a bright idea. However, it wouldn't hurt to actually ask for help first. Focus on your personal health this week and let others lighten your load.
