This week, a total eclipse of a super moon dominates the sky, while Mercury spins in retrograde. But the resulting intense emotions and strange communications don't have to wreak havoc on your wedding plans. It's actually the perfect time to think outside of the box and be particularly kind to yourself and your loved ones. Astrologer and crystal intuitive, Julie Abouzelof, owner of Moonrise Crystals, offers some insight on how this dramatic cosmic opera can actually work to your advantage.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This week's lunar eclipse has the moon in Aries so you may be feeling especially emotional and nostalgic. A sudden desire for independence might even lead to cold feet. Talk to your best friend about your feelings, but don't take them too seriously. Wearing emeralds will remind you of all the good reasons to get married and going on a romantic date with your fiancé will prove once again that the two of you are a match made in heaven!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It's a struggle to find balance this week, as you juggle wedding plans with all of your other responsibilities. Mercury in retrograde makes you want to watch your words to avoid any potential misunderstandings. If someone offers help, gladly accept it and give him or her a huge hug and enthusiastic thank you.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
This isn't the time to make new plans, but it is a great week to fine-tune the current ones. You've already arranged a beautiful and classy wedding so why not add a little bit of fun to the festivities? Kick back over drinks with your bridesmaids for some stress-free brainstorming.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
A total lunar eclipse may illuminate questions about your wants and needs verse those of others. Luckily, with the sun in Libra, your diplomatic skills are on point, making it fairly easy to find a happy compromise. Up until now, the wedding plans have been all about you. Remember that it's a special day for the groom and both your parents too.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Guest lists and seating charts can be finalized now, giving you confidence that everyone will be on their best behavior come the big day.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
If you've been devoting too much of yourself to wedding plans and other people's needs, you'll appreciate some time alone to get grounded and restore your balance again this week. Relax and take a citrus-infused bath; you deserve it. You'll soon feel refreshed and ready to tackle any wedding planning obstacle.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
That big super moon in the sky makes it really hard to concentrate on the wedding. Well, that and the fact that you can't stop daydreaming about the honeymoon! Let your mind wander and get lost in your thoughts. Talk to your fiancé about what would really make you happy and satisfied, both in life and in bed.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Saturn will be transiting across your sign this week, which may leave you feeling like you're the only one that actually cares about all the little details that go into creating the perfect wedding. Confide your fears in your maid of honor, and let her know how stressed out you are. She's always been your rock and will continue to offer you the support you seek.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Is there something you've been reluctant to do or deal with? With a lunar eclipse this week, it's a great time to acknowledge your emotions and kick yourself into high gear. Even though the tasks ahead may seem daunting, you'll soon have them resolved to your liking.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Your brilliant and zany side is showing again, and you'll be feeling especially creative all week long. Pull out all your bridal magazines and start dreaming and scheming, girlfriend.
