Want to know what the stars have in store for you and your wedding this week? From what tasks to tackle to when to take a step back, astrologer Danielle Mercurio breaks it all down for us with her horoscopes below.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You're on fire this week! Continue to ask for what you need when it comes to your wedding plans. You may worry that others will judge you if you do, however, trying to keep everyone happy will only destroy your own joy. On the 5th, you may butt heads on this very subject with your planner or mother. Things should smooth over by mid-week though.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
This is a steady week for you to continue meeting your wedding planning milestones. Whether it's implementing a new diet to help you look your best on the big day or raising funds for the honeymoon, remember that slow and steady will get you far. You may be frustrated that things aren't moving along faster or that you hit a plateau, but be patient and everything will fall into place.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
This week, you may feel like you have to constantly justify your actions, causing you to overthink situations and seek more validation. Instead of being so defensive, ask yourself if you're actually listening to the feedback you receive from others or glossing it over because it's not the advice you want to hear. Take a step back and talk things out with someone you trust, like your sister or maid of honor. It's also not a bad idea to look into hiring a bridal coach if your budget will allow for it.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
There's a lot on your plate this week, as everyone seems to need you for something. You're keeping stride, however, it's definitely more than you're used to. Factor in some downtime for self-care, and let yourself relax and just be in the moment. Also, be sure to discuss what's happening with your partner. He or she may not be aware of your stress load and will likely be relieved to have you express your feelings and ask for support.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Go big or go home! This week is all about being unapologetically you. With Uranus squaring off in your sign on the 5th, you may feel the resistance at first. Understand that your confidence is your secret weapon though. You may have felt like a chameleon and that you were simply "playing the part" at social gatherings tied to your wedding or elsewhere before. Now, you'll start to notice that this "true you" behavior is well received and many will admire your energy for life.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You're well on your way to making all your wedding wishes (and others' too!) come true. Continue to explore how you can expand upon this balance. Opening new doors can be scary, and oftentimes, it's easier to stay in the current room. Sign up for a new class to learn how to rock your first dance with your partner. You'll find that putting yourself out there doesn't always equate to frightening; it's fun!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You've been doing your best to maintain your sanity, as you balance your birthday season with wedding planning, not to mention everything else going on too. Prioritize your tasks and go with your first instinct on decision-making. It will see you through. You'll feel even deeper relief when the planet Mercury in your sign ends its retrograde on October 9th. Take note of any new ideas or opportunities that may come to you as it redirects forward.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You've been working so hard since last month, especially in being a team player and finding the humor in situations. How can you step it up a notch now? Watch out for self-doubt emerging as a way to sabotage your progress. Remember: comparing yourself to other brides will only set you back further.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Now that Saturn is moving through your sign for the next couple years, you're feeling the pressure to jumpstart the projects you've been sitting on. You may find yourself getting overwhelmed by the big picture or bored by the logistics of it all and surrender. Reach out to your bridesmaids for insight and motivation as to where to begin, and have them hold you accountable. Make it a fun and enjoyable process!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
With Pluto moving direct in your sign, stepping out of the norm is highly encouraged. Beginnings and endings can be a sore spot for you, particularly when they're out of your control. Change is important though. Allow others to pitch in and help handle the details. You'll be pleasantly surprised at the results.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Last month, you may have felt like you were pulled in a million different directions. This week, you're determined to follow your own heart. Review your wedding plans with your partner only. Because you're a natural giver, you often don't realize how much of yourself you offer up to others until it's too late. Now's the time to reassess and make sure you're sticking to creating a wedding experience that you and your mate will remember for eons to come!
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
This week would be the perfect opportunity to do some fall cleaning. Purge out any unused or tarnished kitchen items and donate clothing you're bored of. Refresh your living space with artwork or a bouquet of flowers from the farmers market. The more new life you breathe into your home, the more it sets the tone for the freshness that is bound to be yours as you prepare to enter a new chapter of your life.
