When in doubt, look to the stars to help you figure out your wedding plans! Astrologer Danielle Mercurio gives us a glimpse into the future and offers some timely guidance with her horoscopes for the week ahead.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The holidays and New Year celebrations are officially over, and it's time to get back to the daily grind. Self-care is essential and that may mean upping your workout routine. If crowded gyms aren't really your thing though, seek out a specialty bridal boot camp online program, or at the very least, make a pact with your fiancé to eat at home more and cook healthier meals together.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
The workweek starts off slow enough, allowing you to ease back into wedding planning after the buzz of the holidays. This weekend is all about making new connections. Perhaps there is a wedding expo you can check out or a trunk show showcasing the latest trends in bridal and bridesmaid dresses. You may make a key contact that will help you later on.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Based on all the holiday events and gatherings you attended, one-on-one time with your partner is a must this week, as you really haven't had a lot of moments to focus on your relationship. Set up an evening at home and talk about where you're at with the wedding, as well as any other relationship needs that have surfaced. The stronger your communication, the stronger you are as a couple!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
This week you may find yourself fantasizing about life after the wedding. In other words, the honeymoon! Connect with a travel agent, or start exploring potential destinations online for you and your honey to escape to post-wedding. Be sure to read reviews and do your research thoroughly.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Money, money, money! An unforeseen cash flow could be coming through, expanding your bridal budget. Look for an unexpected refund or generous donation from family or friends. Plan with your partner how you'll use it (wisely) before Jupiter, the planet of expansion, goes retrograde on January 8th.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Yes, this is your favorite time of year to plan, set goals, and start new projects, however, with Mercury retrograde returning January 5th to the 24th, this actually isn't the time to sign vendor contracts or make big commitments for your special day. Instead, wrap up what you can and focus on gratitude. Everything will come together in due time!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You begin the New Year with a focus on personal and physical health. Look into classes that emphasize movement and meditative breath work so that you can get the adrenaline rush via your body and mind. This positive activity will help release any scattered thoughts about the wedding and allow you to feel more in control.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You're starting this New Year feeling fresh and invigorated! Ready to come out from behind the rock you were hiding behind the past month, you're excited to discuss with friends and family your wedding plans, as well as network with caterers and photographers to find the perfect fit. You're optimistic and full of love.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
The week begins with a rush of energy and lots of enthusiasm for new projects and ideas you have for the wedding! It's hard to contain your excitement, and it's infectious to everyone you cross paths with. You're looking to go bigger and bolder with your plans and the universe is supporting you until the weekend.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You're really taking in the trifecta of newness with the New Year, your birthday and a New Moon in your sign this week. It's all about fresh beginnings and redefining how you want to do things and interact with people moving forward. You're realizing that pleasing others isn't nearly as important as staying true to yourself and having a wedding that reflects you and your future husband's personalities, beliefs and style.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
This upcoming year reveals a reoccurring theme of worth. Whether it's the value of what you're investing in your wedding or a more inward approach of how you view yourself, it's time to understand that when you trust everything will work out, it really does! Spend time with your bridesmaids and the people that support you the most this week.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
The New Year brings in a major boost of renewed and expressive energy! You feel more connected to your partner than ever, and you can't wait to make your commitment official in marriage. Do something special to honor your love for this magical person, and in turn, it will allow your relationship to grow even deeper.
