Happy Monday, brides! Uranus goes retrograde in the sign of Aries this week, bringing with it sudden change, upheaval and unexpected surprises, according to author and astrologer Lisa Barretta. "Expect the unexpected to kick in over the next few months and prepare for a few rollercoaster rides along the way," she says. Below, find her detailed horoscopes for each sign.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Uranus in your sign may make you feel more like a seismologist instead of a bride this week because you will be looking for the "faults" instead of level ground. Someone may feel excluded from your plans so take a good look at the "who, what, when and where" before you blame the wrong person for any miscommunication concerning you big day.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Decisions all seem to hit at once, and with Jupiter moving into Leo, issues involving family take center stage. You may feel like you're juggling many things at once, and by the way, you are. Uranus backtracking in your twelfth house of secrets may leak a surprise that someone has planned for you. Dress the part and blush as you walk into the unexpected — or should I say expected — shower.
__Gemini (May 21 - June 20) __
Communications of all sorts will take up much of your time as you confirm your guest list, caterer and the rest of your venue. Gemini gals are true multi-taskers, but feel free to ask for some help as you wade through your wedding waters. Sharpen your pencil because Uranus going retrograde in your eleventh house of group activities is sure to bring some changes your way.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Jupiter entered your second house of money last week so be careful not to go over budget even though the extras on your bucket list would be a nice touch to your occasion. Crazy Uranus, now retrograde in your tenth house of status, may make you opt for a quick getaway if wedding planning begins to give you sticker shock. Chill some wine and take a deep breath.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Jupiter in Leo guarantees you star status for the next thirteen months so feel free to shine. Honeymoon travel plans may need a bit of an overhaul since you may decide to upgrade. Relatives could surprise you (in a good way, of course) so anticipate the best. Hurry up and decide who will be the officiant of your wedding ceremony too.
__Virgo (August 23 - September 22) __
Stop stressing over imagined snafus because everything will work out as planned. Uranus is now retrograde in your eighth house of "money owed" so finalize all wedding arrangements and lock in your price. As a Virgo, you are on top of things, but you may need to light a little fire under the groom-to-be and remind him to pick out some gifts for his groomsmen.
__Libra (September 23 - October 22) __
Retrograde Uranus is backtracking through your seventh house of partners, and you may lock horns with your significant other from time to time as the big day draws near. It's hard for Libras to make decisions so why not throw a dart and see where it lands? Just don't aim for the groom! Plans settle in by mid-August and you can once again relax and be "in love with love."
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Mars, the co-ruling planet for your sign, will go into Scorpio by the end of the month and give you a Red Bull kind of boost, making it much easier for you to forge ahead with your wedding arrangements. Your plans will begin to manifest with sheer Scorpio magic and have other brides-to-be wondering how you pulled it all together without a lot of draining drama. Your confidence soars both at home and at work, but be careful not to burn out as you near the home stretch.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius girls would rather leave the wedding planning to someone else and focus more on making arrangements for an amazing honeymoon trip. Destination weddings may kill two birds with one stone. Uranus going retrograde in your fifth house of recreation may make you consider rearranging your travel plans and adding on an additional adventure. Jupiter moving into Leo opens you up to the whole idea of marriage and guarantees that your usual freedom loving nature is ready to settle in to the "we" instead of "me" mode.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorn girls are usually good with money, so with Jupiter moving into your eighth house, make sure you keep an eye on the bottom line of your budget. Your wedding plans should be running like clockwork but where to live and how to decorate your new home may hit a few snags. Decisions you made last month could change so keep your cool and everything should stay right on course.
__Aquarius (January 20 - February 18) __
You can't go wrong with Jupiter's recent move into your seventh house of partnerships since it brings the "luck of the lucks" along with it. Make sure you didn't overlook someone who was supposed to be on the guest list, especially now that Uranus is retrograde in your third house of communications. Seems like there may be someone waiting for his or her invite to arrive. Be outrageous and different. If you want to wear your favorite pair of sneakers with your wedding gown, then go for it. You are known for being unique, eccentric and a trendsetter.
__Pisces (February 19 - March 20) __
With retrograde Uranus transiting your second house of money, keep an eye on your finances and remember that if you swipe now you still have to pay later. Your sensitive, intuitive side absorbs all of the energy around you and you may feel a little overwhelmed with all of the wedding plans; while you're in a spending money kind of mode you might as well schedule in a pre-wedding spa day for yourself to recharge your batteries.
