Did you know that this week leads up to one of the most romantic days in the Wheel of the Year, the Summer Solstice on June 21st? Author and astrologer Lisa Barretta explains exactly what it means for you and your wedding.
__Aries (March 21 - April 19) __
The Sun squares off with your sign by the week's end so you and your significant other have to make your list and agree upon who's invited. Take the lead and sharpen your pencil so you can proceed and determine a final head count. Mercury is still retrograde so expect changes along the way.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
The planet Venus is still rolling through your sign so now is the ideal time to decide on your accessories and pick the perfect hairstyle so you can really rock your wedding day look. Don't be surprised if an old love looks you up to wish you well. You made the right choice.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Flip a coin if you can't decide on a honeymoon spot, but hold off on doing any final bookings until July 2nd when Mercury will be direct and there is less of a chance that things will screw up with your reservations. You are in your element with all of the social planning going on right now but make sure you pay attention to dates and times so you don't have any mix-ups.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Emotions run deep for Cancer gals, and with all this wedding planning, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed. This week have a nice intimate dinner with your significant other so you can pay full attention to just the two of you before you get back into organizing your big day.
__Leo (July 23 - August 22) __
By the end of the week you may find yourself rethinking the venue for your reception. Do you want understated elegance or an over the top glam type of wedding event? Even though you are known for doing things with panache, keep an eye on your budget.
__Virgo (August 23 - September 22) __
As a Virgo, you know that success is in the details, and you are by far a wedding planner par excellence. Mercury, your ruling planet, is in retrograde until July 1st so be aware that even though you are on top of things it is still a good idea to confirm dates and check that wedding invitations are in place and accurate.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The past few months have been crazy for you while Mars was retrograde in your sign, but now things seem to be getting back into balance just the way you like it. Co-workers may have a little wedding surprise planned for you so be open to any impromptu invitations.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Your keen Scorpio intuition may be urging you to double check finances and catch any possible glitches before they cause a problem. You have everything under control and find it funny watching everyone else freak out over the to-do list for your wedding.
__Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) __
Mercury is retrograde in your seventh house of significant others so keep on top of your man to make certain that he is well organized for the big day. Your sense of adventure has you looking at some exotic honeymoon packages. Go for it!
__Capricorn (December 22 - January 19) __
Don't make any final decisions this week concerning what to put on your wedding registry because you are sure to change your mind. Even though some trendy items might seem appealing, tradition and quality make more of a statement for your taste. Steer your honey away from the baseball-themed shot glasses in favor of the Waterford ones.
__Aquarius (January 20 - February 18) __
Things may seem a bit hectic this week as you try to finalize some important plans. Don't put yourself into overdrive; everything will calm down by July 2nd. Have some fun and experiment with a unique manicure that really shows off your ring.
__Pisces (February 19 - March 20) __
Wouldn't it be great if a Fairy Godmother would just materialize and make the wedding plans for you? Romance may take precedence over decisions this week so enjoy the bliss because isn't that what it's all about anyway? Next week you'll plan — promise!
