When in doubt, look to the stars to help you figure your wedding plans out! Astrologer and women's health and success coach Jennifer Racioppi offers up her best celestial guidance for the week ahead. Time to tackle that to-do list, right brides?
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This week romance heats up for you as we approach Saturday's lusty full moon in fellow fire sign Leo. Think lingerie and play! With so much emphasis on your love life, you may even want to start planning outfits for the honeymoon. In the meantime, affectionate Venus finishes up her stay in Sagittarius, giving you a helping hand when it comes to coordinating your ceremony and vows. Dig deep and think about the commitment you're making. The stars support you so get to writing.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Mars continues to tour your seventh house of marriage in the sign of sultry Scorpio, encouraging you to probe your deepest desires for your wedding day. Even with Mercury retrograde in fellow earth sign Capricorn, you're on a roll with getting things done. Don't stop now! The Leo full moon on Saturday happens in your fourth house of family and ancestral roots so take the time to visualize the bond you're creating in your marriage. Dreams do come true!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your ruler Mercury continues his retrograde spin in your eighth house of money from others. Try to slow down, and keep an eye on your budget. Use the next week to review your financial plans for the wedding, verifying that everything adds up monetarily. On a positive note, for most of the week loving Venus cruises through your house of marriage with feel-good mojo. Even if little arguments happen here and there, which is common for Gemini's when Mercury goes retrograde, Venus helps you remember the big picture. Stay optimistic!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The week kicks off with action-oriented Mars in Scorpio transiting your fifth house of romance while he makes a super feel good angle to magic-making Neptune in Pisces. With both Mars and Neptune in fellow water signs, doors blow open for you. On the 23rd your ruler, the Moon, comes into her full illumination under the sign of Leo, the ruler of your second house of money. Prepare to receive spiritual guidance on how you want your wedding (and marriage) to feel, and stay open to the possibility of unexpected financial support to come through to back this.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Wow! With a full moon in your sign on Saturday, literally anything is possible this week. Even though you may encounter obstacles (Mercury is retrograde until early next week after all) you can still move mountains. On Wednesday look to your girls for support. If you haven't already, now's the time to start to thinking about gifts for your bridesmaids. You certainly want to thank them for all they've done for you thus far.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Mercury, still retrograde, encourages you to take a closer look at the wedding details. You're especially popular these days, as you host good luck Jupiter in your sign, so narrowing down the guest list may take some time. Focus! Depending on where you're at in the planning process now might be a good opportunity to create your seating chart as well. Either way, a head start on this important aspect will pay off.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Ow, ow! The sun moves into fellow air sign Aquarius on Wednesday, the ruler of your fifth house of romance. Further, the Leo full moon on the 23rd happens in your 11th house of friendship. This week brings with it revitalizing energy, highlighting your relationships particularly. Use the full moon to work on wedding invitations and tap into your creative side. Already sent them out? Think about table settings and party favors instead! Put your artistic talents to work.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Things sizzle for you while you host action-oriented Mars in your sign. You likely feel energy surging through your body. Use this motivation to exercise and burn some of that energy off as opposed to making waves in your relationship. Have you bought your dress yet? If not, let Mars help you find the perfect gown for the big day. Mars hangs out in your sign all the way until March 5th so you have plenty of time to take advantage of it.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Serious Saturn moves through your sign, prompting you to work harder than usual in all aspects of your life. Further, your ruler Jupiter (now retrograde), moves through detail oriented Virgo, priming you to take a meticulous approach to wedding planning. Use your intense concentration to plan major fun! You'll be glad you did, especially because Saturn helps your wedding to become a smashing success. Stay focused on what matters and enjoy the process.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Now that your birthday is over you can get back to concentrating on your wedding! Even with Mercury retrograde in your sign, you feel hyper focused. On the 22nd, Pluto and Mercury meet up in Capricorn to help you rediscover your ultimate vision for your big day. Tune into what comes up for you on Friday, as you may discover that other people's agendas need to take a back seat so you can create the perfect wedding for you and your fiancé! Don't be afraid to say no.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
The sun moves into your sign on Wednesday, electrifying you with brilliant ideas to make your wedding as eclectic as you are. However, there's a caveat. Your ruler, Uranus, will make a cranky angle to Mercury in retrograde on the 20th. So keep your schedule light on Wednesday, especially if it's your birthday. Otherwise, it's time to get crafty about the details of your big day. Devote time and energy to the design elements for your reception like flowers, lights and seating. Next week, once Mercury goes direct, things move more smoothly for you so stay tuned.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
This week offers you excellent reinforcement to see the big picture and wax poetic! Monday begins with Mars (moving through fellow water sign, Scorpio), making an ideal angle to your ruler Neptune. The spiritual and creative floodgates open. Your imagination will run wild, and you'll likely feel a surge of energy to make some moves on its behalf. Unleash your inner artist. Work on your ceremony by thinking about poetry or scriptures to include.
