Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It's time to kick it into full gear and start the wedding planning in a big way. Aries, a cardinal sign, is ruled by Mars, a sign of action. Mars is now in Libra, another cardinal sign, so you have a double dose of energy. Libra controls dealing with people in very intimate situations, such as marriage and contractual relations, so get those catering contracts, music contracts and everything else signed!
__Taurus (April 20 - May 20) __
Your ruling planet Venus, the Goddess of Love, is in Gemini right now and hanging out in the sky very close to Gemini's ruler, Mercury. Gemini is all about the flow of information and communications so this would be a great time to write your vows, create your perfect invitation, compose thank you notes, or work on any other piece of prose you need for the big day.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Gemini's ruler Mercury is in Cancer, the nurturing mother of the zodiac. Take a tip from my advice to the Taurus bride because Mercury and Venus are hugging together in the sky. Also, do you need to call your groom's mother, grandmother or favorite aunt to fill them in on any wedding details? Mercury moves fast so do it now, as the call will go better.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your ruler the Moon is moving from Aquarius into Pisces this week. Pisces is all about compassion and humanity, but it is also the sign of the martyr. Are you delegating enough? Is someone else trying to be in charge of your wedding? Are you losing control of your big day? The Moon moves fast, but be on guard that you are not letting Pisces take away your power this week.
__Leo (July 23 - August 22) __
The Sun is heading into Leo soon and in conjunction with Jupiter, the sign of expansion. Take a deep breath Leo, that is a lot of your vibrate fire energy brewing in the sky. We know you have a tendency to transition into Bridezilla mode if the world does not pay you proper homage, and this is one of the planetary aspects that can bring out the beast in you.
__Virgo (August 23 - September 22) __
Vesta, the asteroid that rules Virgo, is sitting right on top of Mars this week and in the sign of Libra. Libra is all about intimate dealings with other people (think contractual dealings) and Mars is the sign of taking action. You are not usually direct Virgo, but this is your time to say it like it is. Is someone not getting you the information you need or is the caterer trying to give you second-rate chicken puffs? Do not shy away, and use that Mars energy to get people to respond!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Since you share a ruler with Taurus, check out my notes above about Venus. You have a double dose of that Taurus creative energy this week because Taurus is sitting on the cusp of the seventh house, the house of Libra! Write, create and think outside the box when it comes to your wedding. Your creative juices have never been stronger.
__Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) __
Pluto, your ruler, is in retrograde right now. A planet that is retrograded appears as if it is going backwards in the sky. Astrologically, the energy it is giving out is inward. The universe is sending a big "pause" button. Now, Scorpio you are all about inward energy and finding a way around direct confrontation. However, do not let this time bring out the worst in you, that Scorpio need for revenge. If there is anything in your groom's past that you are not completely comfortable with speak to him openly and honestly.
__Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) __
Your ruler, Jupiter, is in Cancer right now and high in the sky very near the Sun. I know you usually have your head in the clouds working on the big issues surrounding your wedding, but bring it closer to home now. Is your mom's dress picked out? Are you adding the right "homey" touches to the venue? Mom, home, and hearth are the domain of Cancer so reign in your big ideas and focus on these details this week.

__Capricorn (December 22 - January 19) __
With your planetary ruler Saturn in retrograde (seemingly moving backwards and causing an inward energy on her subjects) and also in the secretive sign of Scorpio, you need to watch your Capricornian tendency to take on too much work and then pout about it. Not everything has to get done this week, and it all doesn't have to be done by you. You are good at lists so take a minute, make one and then assign people to take on each task. Your wedding is supposed to be fun. Repeat that while you are having a glass of wine in the hot tub.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Your ruler Uranus is surging with Aries energy right now and that is sending that dynamic Aquarius energy of yours in all directions. Focus! Your creativity is legendary; do not blow it by scattering it all over. The sky is never the limit for you. Do you want skydivers heading into your reception, a dozen doves released or fireworks? You can do it all as long as your don't get too ahead of yourself.
__Pisces (February 19 - March 20) __
Your guiding star Neptune is in Pisces now but is retrograded. However, the retrograde will not last long so there's no need to worry. This is the time for all of your Pisces intuition and physic power to peak. Bring out your grandmother's gown (or something borrowed from her), tune into the energy of your ancestors and make a plan to honor them at your ceremony. You know they will be there in spirit.
