Lucky you, brides! Astrologer Joan Porte is back again this week to help guide you in the right direction when it comes to planning and pulling off your perfect day. Discover what the stars have in store for you with her horoscopes below.
__Aries (March 21 - April 19) __
This is the time to really get stuff done! With your ruler, Mars, in another fire sign, Sagittarius, you have enough energy to light the world. Make those calls and check things off your list, as nothing will stand in your way this week. Just remember that not everyone has all of that fire so keep your Aries temper under control when dealing with slower types.
__Taurus (April 20 - May 20) __
This week you'll want to pick out all those decorative items you need to make your big day beautiful. Venus is in Libra, the other sign besides yours that it rules, and sitting close to the Libran Sun so you have double Venus influence right now. Meet with your invitation designer, say yes to the dress and start thinking about table settings and flowers. All of these activities you'll handle with even more than your usual grace.
__Gemini (May 21 - June 20) __
Mercury has slipped back into retrograde, so be sure to think twice and check three times before doing anything important. In addition, back up all of your documents, as things tend to get lost when Mercury goes to sleep. If you are communicating with your vendors, follow up phone calls with email confirmations. There is just too much room for confusion until Mercury gets his act together.
__Cancer (June 21 - July 22) __
With the Moon in emotional Pisces right now, it's best to avoid any conversations that have the possibility of causing tension. Let your future mother-in-law wait for that call back if a blow up is in the offing. In a few days, the Moon will be back in Aries again and then you can rearm your emotions for battle.
__Leo (July 23 - August 22) __
Your ruler, the Sun, is currently hugging Venus and dancing in the constellation of Libra so take all of that Leo fire and get creative, brides. Speaking of dancing, pick out your music and get some of those DIY projects off the ground while you're at it. You're at the peak of your creativity right now!
__Virgo (August 23 - September 22) __
With your ruler, Vesta, in Sagittarius and hanging close to Ceres and Saturn, you'll put your nose even further towards the grindstone than normal this week. Since you love to be in the garden, use Ceres' motherly energy and Saturn's orderliness to nurture your floral arrangements and plan any other outdoor activities you have in store for your big day.
__Libra (September 23 - October 22) __
Venus and the Sun are together now so sit down and let those creative juices fly. Design your wedding programs, brainstorm ideas for your signature cocktails or come up with the craftiest wedding favors ever. There's no stopping the flow of fab ideas with Venus' blessing and her touch of grace this week.
__Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) __
Pluto has just gotten out of retrograde so you should be bursting with energy right now. It's still making that nasty squared aspect to Uranus though so you'll need to take a few deep breaths and organize yourself to prevent that "chicken-without-a-head" syndrome when it comes to wedding planning. Uranus wants to move fast and Pluto is anything but, however, you can keep them both under control. After all, you are a Scorpio!

__Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) __
If you're feeling a bit rebellious this week you can thank the Black Moon Lilith, a very feisty gal, currently influencing your ruler Jupiter. Since you're never much of a wallflower anyway this is going to give you that little edge to sneak in some touches that will offer just enough shock value to be fun yet still appropriate.
__Capricorn (December 22 - January 19) __
With Saturn in Scorpio you might find yourself feeling even more overwhelmed with wedding planning tasks than usual. Now that Ceres, the motherly planet, is hugging Saturn close why not take a break for a few days, have some tea and just relax. Come on, you can do it.
__Aquarius (January 20 - February 18) __
With Uranus still in retrograde, you have a lot more bottled up energy than you typically do and unfortunately no suitable outlet for it this week. Simplify your plans or take a meditation break (or two or three) to get your mind right and back on track.
__Pisces (February 19 - March 20) __
Although your ruler, Neptune, is currently in Pisces, it has gone into retrograde, making you feel like a total fish out of water now. This is the perfect time to delegate some tasks before you're so overwhelmed you don't know which way is up.
