When in doubt, look to the stars to help you figure your wedding plans out! From what projects to work on to when to step back and take a break, astrologer Joan Porte breaks it all down for you with her horoscopes for the week ahead.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Mars is in another fire sign, Sagittarius, right now so you might want to charge ahead with your usual zeal. However, he is getting ready to go into a retrograde period. Retrogrades are times for pulling back and reassessing, which isn't something Aries always excels in. So if there's anything that doesn't feel quite right or you're unsure of, hold off on making a final decision until after the retrograde.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Venus, your guiding planet, is in soulful Pisces right now. This will add to your usual creative flair so spend these warm spring days picking out flowers, color schemes and bridesmaid dresses. This is also a great time to find a photographer and choose a location for your engagement pictures, as Pisces does rule photography.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
There's a lot of Pisces energy around Mercury this week, making it a great time to write your vows and get your invitations designed. Pisces also infuses increased spiritual and soulful energy into your communication and takes it to another level of beauty. If you're religious, consider what traditions you'd like to incorporate into your wedding.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your ruler, the Moon, is currently in Gemini and that high intensity energy can make your already gentle nerves kick into higher gear. Emotions might be raw and tempers frayed so it's probably best to slow down, take a spa break, and wait a few days to get back to planning.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
The Sun, the ruler of Leo, is in conjunction with rebellious Uranus giving you the desire to break free of restrictions. This is a great time to dig into the Leo reserve of creativity and devise ways to put your unique stamp on your wedding plans. You like being recognized and want your wedding to be memorable so let your individuality and uniqueness shine now!
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Vesta, the asteroid that rules your sign, is now in Taurus. Ruled by Venus, Taurus, a fellow Earth sign, is very compatible with you. Sit down with lots of papers, pencils and wedding guides, and go into Virgo high gear and plan away! In a few days you'll have every idea down on paper and a method to make them come to reality, not to mention a very organized to-do list.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Since Venus also rules Taurus, be sure to take a look at its horoscope above for some insight. Otherwise, with Venus being so close to Neptune this week, you'll want to take advantage. Concentrate on your ceremony and how you can accent it with an extra spiritual flair.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Pluto, your ruler, is making a disharmonious aspect to Jupiter right now, which can dampen your spirits and send you even more in your head that usual. There's nothing wrong with taking to your bed (Scorpio does love to hide undercover) and working on your invitations, overall décor design or anything else that requires solitary work.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
With Jupiter still in retrograde and making an opposition to dreamy Neptune, it would be wise to avoid committing to anything big right now. A giant ice sculpture of you and your future hubs and purple roses may have a certain appeal at this time, but when Neptune pulls away it won't seem so pretty. Keep your head on your shoulders and think small.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Saturn is pulling away from Mars finally and that will lighten your mood. You don't need Mars angry energy to make you feel more agitated. Celebrate this movement and rejoice in spring by doing something spur of the moment and unrelated to wedding planning...perhaps a getaway with the fiancé? You deserve a break.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You're the energizer bunny now that your ruler, Uranus, is full steam ahead in Aries and hanging close to the fiery Sun. Just be careful that you don't go too far out on a limb with financial and time commitments. You sometimes never know when to stop — and you might get too much spring fever. Take a step back and breathe.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Wedged between Mars and Venus right now, your ruler, Neptune, can power you to overcome your normal reticence and define what you want for your special day. Sit down and ask yourself what creative flairs you really want to add to your wedding. How can you put your own personal stamp on it? Then ask Mars to help you carry out your dreams.
