It's all about the details this week, brides! From finally writing your vows to mapping out the honeymoon schedule, astrologer and women's health and success coach Jennifer Racioppi offers up her celestial guidance and breaks down exactly what the stars have in store for you and your wedding plans.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Venus continues to lavish you with love as the goddess of beauty spends another week in your sign. Amazing! But watch out, your temperament may be a bit short this week, mainly because Mars (your ruler) recently went retrograde. If you feel like things aren't lining up with your ideal vision for your dream wedding, take a step back and reassess what it is you really desire. The process of reevaluation will prove fruitful, helping you stay in sync with your deepest desires for your big day.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your patience pays off this week. With your ruler Venus making a stable steady connection to hardworking Saturn, you can expect to feel supported. With this kind of cosmic support, please take action on behalf of the details that matter most. Evaluate your priorities and strategize accordingly. Later in the week a full moon in the sign of sexy Scorpio illuminates your house of marriage and partnerships. Ow, ow! Take time to connect with your partner in a sensual loving way; you definitely won't regret it.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
As one of the most nimble signs of the zodiac, you tend to love speed, yet this week it's necessary to slow down to go fast. Mars, the planet of action, just went retrograde in the house of marriage. Further, with your ruler Mercury moving through your 12th house of spirituality, getting ready to go retrograde himself, the cosmos invite you to revise and revisit the plans you already have in place before making any more commitments. Pay attention to the details. As you do, you'll get feedback on parts of the planning process that may have previously boggled your mind.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Sweet cancer, let romance reign this week. With the momentum building towards a luscious full moon in Scorpio in your fifth house of romance on the 21st, the cosmos provide you with a landscape to conjure and create your vision for the sensual side of your marriage. Practically speaking, spend time this week on things like your honeymoon and maybe even shop around for items like your post-nuptial lingerie. But hey, you don't need to wait for the wedding to be over to turn the heat up in your love life. Plan a special surprise date for your partner this week and spend time connecting!

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
With loving Venus in a fellow fire sign, Aries, this week, things may feel a bit feisty. Make good use of this energy and get things done, especially early in the week when Venus sends a luscious beam of excitement to steady Saturn. Tend to your master wedding to-do list, and don't forget other non-negotiables like exercise. Mars, the planet of action, just went retrograde, so it's important to tend to your health and keep your body in tune too. Take care of you, and trust everything is moving along perfectly.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
With a full moon lighting up your third house of communication this week, now is the perfect time to nail down the details of your ceremony. Any special readings you want to incorporate? Are you writing your own vows? Spend time this week thinking through your commitments. How are you doing with your invitations too? This is a great week to get them out if you haven't already. At the end of the month Mercury goes retrograde, so take care of this now.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
With the Scorpio full moon lighting up your house of money, now's the time to take care of your budget. I know it's not always fun, but it is such an important task. If things feel on point there, you may also want to have a deeper conversation with your partner about financial plans for the future. Are you both on the same page when it comes to money values? If not, no worries...just start the dialogue now so you can get there.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
All eyes are on you this week as we build toward the full moon in your sign on the 21st. This is the perfect time to try on wedding dresses or start the process of alterations. If you haven't yet, be sure to get out and shop this week. You'll feel awesome in everything you try on. Also, FYI, Mercury goes retrograde at the end of the month, making it even more necessary to nail the dress down now. If you have it on lock, think about accessories, hair, and any other accouterment you want to include in your look. Go ahead and schedule the hair and makeup trial too.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
This week as Venus, the goddess of love, sends a stellar beam of support to Saturn (who's transiting your first house along with Mars) you have an opportunity to solidify looming plans for the big day. But here's the bigger question, are you having fun? If not, what do you need to do to shake things up so you're actually enjoying the process of getting married? Think outside the box, mix up routines and let loose. Even as you make commitments, it's so important for you to stay focused on feeling stress-free too.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
The supportive full moon in Scorpio helps you out this week, lighting up your 11th house of friendship. Have you asked your besties to be your bridesmaids yet? If not, this full moon happening on the 21st is the perfect time to do so. If you're already well past that stage, be sure to spend quality time connecting with them this week. Ask them how they're doing and carve out time to nurture them, and your other friendships as well. And then pay attention to the inspiration that comes through as a result.

To do so, think about ways you can make your wedding a standout, smashing success. As one of the most innovative and original signs in the zodiac, it's so important for you to own your individuality. You're not meant to have a cookie cutter affair! Let this full moon electrify your authenticity so you can create an unforgettable, signature dream wedding.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
The magnanimous Scorpio full moon, happening on the 21st, lights up your 9th house of international travel. Now's the time to plan your honeymoon, especially before Mercury goes retrograde in a couple of weeks. Have fun flipping through travel magazines to gain inspiration, and then hit the Internet to find the best travel deals out there. Got basic travel arrangements handled already? Awesome. Then put your attention on the finer details of the trip. Think about specific restaurants you plan to dine at and outfits you want to wear there. You may even want to triple check your passport and any visa's you may need for the big trip too.
