When in doubt, look to the stars to help you figure your wedding plans out! From what tasks to tackle and how to go about them, astrologer Danielle Mercurio offers her guidance for the week ahead.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It feels like you've been working nonstop on your wedding, yet getting nowhere at the same time. Keep at it and realize that everything you're doing now does have a bigger purpose and will eventually pay off.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Yes, it's your wedding, but remember it's not all about you. Find ways for your maid of honor, mom and mother-in-law to get involved if they've been dying to lend a helping hand. As for your other half, a date night is definitely due, no wedding talk allowed! With Venus in your opposing sign Scorpio, it's time to turn up the romance.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
There's so much going on in all sectors of your life right now that it's hard not to be overwhelmed. Take some time away to assess what your real priorities are versus what you just think you have to do. Look at the big picture and try to enjoy the planning process. After all, you only say, "I do" once!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your creative juices have been flowing like wine lately and you couldn't be happier. From Pinterest worthy place cards to out of the box guestbook alternatives, you've infused your style and personality into every piece of the celebration (and his too!). Now you can relax a little and have faith that that it's okay to take a break from the wedding and focus on other tasks, such as organizing family dinners and letting loose at a friend's holiday party!
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Patience and the ability to set healthy boundaries are your two biggest virtues this week. If you let everyone else dictate how your wedding should be, you won't get a lot done and you'll feel more drained and swamped in the process. Work from the inside out, trusting that when you tend to your own needs first, you'll be in the right headspace to help others too.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You're making major progress this week. With a renewed faith and zest for life, you're not allowing yourself to sweat the small stuff and focusing on what feels really good for you instead. Spend time doing the fun wedding stuff with your fiancé. Schedule a cake tasting or perhaps even hire a choreographer to teach you the latest moves for your first dance as husband and wife!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Change isn't always easy, however, when you break it down and take it step by step everything starts to become more manageable. Take a look at your wedding planning progress, and start to finalize those decisions that you've been hemming and hawing over. Once you figure out where you should have your wedding or whether you want a band or a DJ, you'll be able to move forward and knock nagging items off your to-do list.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Oh la la! The planet Venus of love and passion moves into your sign until the end of the month. The bedroom is typically your domain so where else in your life can you inject some spice and turn up the heat? Look over any upcoming wedding details that may be boring you and switch it up to bring more enthusiasm into your nuptials.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
It's your birthday season, and while you enjoy the celebratory cheer, you're more focused on what's in store for the year ahead. Sit down with your partner and have a serious talk about the future and what life looks like after marriage for the both of you. This is also an incredible time to plan your honeymoon, as you know how to organize an epic adventure better than anyone!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Now that Mercury, the planet of communication and thoughts, has moved into your sign you may be put into situations where you must speak up for yourself. Be direct and honest about your wants and needs while still being kind. The more you come from a compassionate and sympathetic place, the easier the conversation will go.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You may be feeling extra sensitive this week due to some of the changes that are happening in your life currently. You couldn't be more excited about your upcoming wedding vows, however there's a part of you that wonders what married life will really be like. Talk to your partner about how you're feeling, especially during the middle of the week when the Moon will support your emotions.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
The week starts off slow, but by the end, you'll be feeling charged up and electrified. You finally hear back on an opportunity or receive the feedback you've been waiting for and it's giving you everything you need to take the next steps forward. All the hard work you've been putting into your relationship and soon to be wedding is totally paying off!
