Between the hustle and bustle of the holidays and wedding planning, it's a busy week ahead indeed, brides! Astrologer Joan Porte breaks down exactly what the stars have in store for you and your big day with her horoscopes below.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your ruler Mars is hugging close to the asteroid Juno, the goddess the Romans prayed to for a wonderful marriage. This is the perfect time to snuggle under the Christmas tree with your sweetie and dazzle him with your Mars electricity. Remind him why he's so lucky to have someone with your fire and spirit, and make it a most memorable holiday season.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A full Moon on Christmas Day heightens emotions this week. Be very cautious of how you react to your love's comments. With Venus making a difficult aspect to the Moon and hanging out in super secret and super insightful Scorpio, you're more likely to blow things out of proportion and create unnecessary tension around the holidays. Fortunately, the Moon moves fast and peace is restored.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Mercury is moving out of staid Capricorn and into electric Aquarius, another air sign. Your typical ability to multi-task will kick into high gear. Use this time to make to-do lists, a forte of yours, but don't burden your bridal party with an onslaught of brand new ideas. Wait until the New Year to share your new vision.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
A full Moon on Christmas Day may push your already strong emotions into overdrive. Why not put aside the wedding planning for now, and enjoy an intimate dinner just for the two of you. Tap into the positive energy of the Moon and make it a relaxing holiday full of love and laughter.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Your Sun is making a difficult aspect to Jupiter now. Because both the Sun and Jupiter are centers of vitality and growth, this aspect can make you feel a bit weary and zapped of energy. On top of that, Jupiter is about to turn retrograde, intensifying that urge you have to curl up with a blanket and a cup of tea. Go with the flow, put on your Christmas jammies, hop in bed, and check your to-do list twice. You can get back to business as usual after the holidays.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Vesta, the asteroid that rules your sign, is coming within striking distance of quirky Aquarius. You could use that burst of creative energy now, as sometimes you let yourself get too boxed in by "rules." Instead, think outside the box, and look within to discover what it is that you want. At the end of the day, as long as you're happy, who cares if someone else thinks your dream wedding is weird?
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Be wary of shady vendors and deals that sound too good to be true this week; they probably are! Keep your feet on the ground and your head out of the clouds. Definitely don't agree to anything or sign a contract until you've looked at it twice and so has your fiancé.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Pluto, your ruler, will be as close to the Sun as she can get in the next few months. This will help warm up her sometimes cool exterior and yours too! Shower your bridal party with unexpected and uncharacteristically cute gifts for the holiday season. Your fiancé definitely deserves a sweet gift from the heart as well.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
With your ruler Jupiter making a disharmonious aspect to both the Moon and Pluto, you'll want to take your time to think through any big decisions right now, particularly those related to the wedding. Sip some eggnog and mull it over before committing to vendors or putting a deposit down on a dress or venue. Use your head and your heart to avoid making rash decisions based purely on emotion that you'll later regret.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Your ruler, conservative Saturn, clashes with flighty and spiritual Neptune, causing you to be extra indecisive this week. Part of you wants to splurge on décor to make your wedding more mystical, and the other part of you is telling you to stop wasting money. It's best to take a step back and compromise with these opposing energies. Perhaps you can borrow or rent what you're looking for, for less.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
The sluggishness you've been feeling will soon be replaced with high energy, as Uranus leaves its retrograded movement on Christmas Day. Schedule any vendor interviews, tastings, and dress appointments for early January so you have all your ducks in a row and are ready to roll come the New Year.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Your ruler, Neptune, is making a flowing aspect to the Moon. That makes you want to retreat into your dream world even more than usual. What a good week to feel that way! Put aside those plans, which can weigh you down with stress, and get lost in the magic of the holidays.
