Some solo time and fun in the sun (okay, or in the AC...it's hot out, y'all!) may be just what you need right now, brides! We talked to astrologer Danielle Mercurio, who gives us the scoop and breaks down exactly what the stars have in store for you and your love life this week with her horoscopes below.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The week starts off with the moon in your sign giving you a burst of good energy and feeling like you're on top of the world. Everything is lining up in your favor and you have no problem sharing that excitement. Let others radiate off your joy, especially your soon to be husband; it's electric!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Continue to lead this week with your heart and not by the horns, my bull headed friend. The more you express the vulnerable and tender side of your being, the more you can relax and feel understood by your partner, friends and even colleagues. It will also give you an advantage with a project you've been working on, whether it be something you're brewing on the side, at work or for the wedding.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
It's likely you've been enjoying the summer breeze and time with your sweetie and friends. However, by the middle of this week, you may be feeling drawn to studying a new passion or exploring going back to school. While more learning and education is always a good idea, try to be realistic with your intentions and talk it over with your partner too.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It's amazing how much you came to life during your birthday season! Now the fun continues this week, as you explore new ways to continue to come out of your shell. This is a great time to explore opportunities to share more of your gifts and talents. Perhaps incorporate them into your wedding or simply start a blog to highlight your fascinating skill set.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Lots of questions may emerge as the Sun enters into your home turf, lioness. While it's a time to celebrate you and everything that is majorly fabulous about your life, it's also a period to explore your hopes and desires for the year ahead. Take a little retreat away from the parties and lunches long enough to get clear on what you're capable of and how you wish to see it through. You'll love your solo pow-wow, and it'll benefit your relationship too.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Try not to overload your schedule this week, as you'll start to experience some resistance in turn. Talk to your partner about how it would be beneficial to have some time to just relax and not over exhaust yourself yet again on the details of your wedding or a project at work. Trust it's all coming together and you can confidently weave in the down time you crave.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
This is a fantastic week for you to let loose and have some major fun. Whether planning a weekend at the beach with your bridesmaids or hitting up the latest rooftop bar with your one and only, it's guaranteed to be a good time no matter what you decide. You're at your best when you let yourself go with the flow, so show up every day with the intention of enjoying it all.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
As we wind down the month, you may feel like you're finally blossoming out of the cocoon you've been dwelling in and showing off to the world your beautiful butterfly wings. It feels good to stretch out and be seen for who you truly are. Don't second guess anything that comes your way and trust you're on the right path. Stay honest with your partner and you'll continue to accept the amazing things in store.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Lots of things that have been orchestrated behind the scenes may finally be coming to light this week. For example, an advance with your career or perhaps some of the last minute details for your wedding will finally come to fruition. This is a time of celebrating all the hard work you've been doing, so be sure to take off some time for a hike with your sweetie or a dinner date at the local brewery.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Much of the pressure you've been putting on yourself is starting to alleviate, mostly from your willingness to believe that you don't have to control every facet of your life. The newfound sense of freedom may open up new creative sectors that you can apply to your wedding, home and even love life. Your partner is sure to be grateful for this more open and carefree side of you.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
As much as you love to kick back and relax during the summer months, there may be a project looming over your head that would be best for you to complete this week. The sooner you get clarity around this issue, you'll be able to move it forward and go back to having fun. Don't be afraid to call up a friend or ask your partner for some insight.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
This may feel like a quiet week for you, and if so, take advantage and do something nice for yourself. You've worked really hard this summer and have let your creativity shine, now it's time to go inward and harness the beauty that is always there. If you feel the need to get something major off your chest with your fiancé, now is the time to do so too. You'll feel so much better once you do.
