Turns out, money, money, money is on the minds of many couples this week! We talked to relationship astrologer Ingrid Hansen to get the scoop on what the stars have in store for you and your love life this week, with your weekly love horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You're more energetic and decisive than ever through September so take advantage of it! It's also a great time to take your fitness goals up a notch (get your guy on board too!) or check off routine tasks you've been putting off. Be delicate with friendships due to a slight risk for misunderstandings. Go the extra mile to include close associates and family members, including his, with special plans or events or they may feel neglected.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A new eclipse cycle starts September 1st so it's a good time to sign your wedding contracts together and finalize any old business beforehand. You'll feel more confident this week and people will notice, especially your significant other. Try out a new style for your wedding day or focus your creative energy on the reception theme. You'll be surprised at what else develops.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
August may just be your favorite month this year. Multiple supportive planets are aligning favorably for Geminis now and they all influence luxury, travel and fun. You might incorporate patterns and prints (Gemini favorites) into your wedding theme or give your home décor a playful makeover. The sky is the limit for you and you might even be thinking about volunteering since this beneficent energy lighting up your sign is contagious. Grab your guy and do some good together.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You're becoming more creative with bringing in new income, and you'll have an opportunity to close the door on a few pesky financial matters. The sun will trine Uranus on the 16th and create harmony for you as the full moon moves into Aquarius, focusing new positivity on your partner's income, taxes or money matters.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
August is an eye-opening month when your perspective may change drastically and you'll begin to move ahead aggressively with big ideas. You'll see new financial rewards this month but you're working hard for it and you long to take some time off. Set aside some downtime to escape from the pressure of work and the wedding, and plan a romantic date night with your sweetie.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Now's the time to double-down on your biggest hopes and dreams because Jupiter will soon move away from your sign and into Libra. The planet of good fortune has helped you improve in many aspects of your life and relationship since its first appearance a year ago. Exert extra energy on your long-term goals and ask for what you want. Chances are, you'll probably get it.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You've been more intuitive and focused on behind-the-scenes efforts lately, but this week you break out of your shell, dear Libra. Social matters are more on your mind so you may want to smooth out any conflicts at home or otherwise. Invite your bridesmaids out for some fun on the 18th when the full moon casts a light on your playful side.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You'll gain momentum this month financially as Mars, your ruling planet, leaves its shadow period and begins to shine light on your money sector. Put your money aside for a down payment on a house with your honey or open a rainy day bank account together with all that good fortune.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
You may misread people this week or misunderstand contract details. Best to put off your biggest decisions, wedding and otherwise, until mid-September if possible or hire a professional to help you both until then. Don't use drastic methods to get what you desire. Instead of shutting out outside opinions, allow your friends, family and partner to give you inspiration!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Now's the time to put your foot down and ask for what you want at home, work and life in general. Mars, in your house of preparations, is finally at full speed so you're priming your final production for success. Wait to unveil your big efforts in mid-September, but use this time to be productive about major undertakings.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Your intuition and self-awareness is at an all-time high, especially with the lunar eclipse in your sign on August 18th, equivalent to three full moons! That means the universe is three times more likely to help you discard relationships, habits or things that are no longer beneficial to you. Stay patient and don't react negatively to things you can't change. You might be surprised at how relieved you feel next month.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Finances are on your mind this week but thankfully the Sun is supporting you fully, starting on the 16th. Uranus is also offering additional assistance this week in your salary sector. Your fiancé is more likely to agree and appreciate you as Venus enters your relationship zone. Now's the time to pay off some bills, and you'll even have a little left over for your over-the-top honeymoon destination!
