Should you sign on the dotted line? For many brides, it's a big, fat no this week! To learn more and discover exactly what the stars have in store for you and your wedding day, take not of astrologer Joan Porte's horoscopes below for some much-needed celestial guidance.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You're on a mission this week and ready to really take the reigns (and control) when it comes to all things wedding planning. Dish out those assignments, and get your ducks in a row now. Don't hold back, as you have double the power this week, so put it to good use and knock stuff off that to-do list you've been procrastinating.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Venus, your guiding planet, is so close to task master Saturn right now, but she's also in the constellation of expansive Sagittarius. While this may sound contradictory, it's actually a wonderful opportunity. Sagittarius will make you think big so plan the wedding of your dreams as if there were no boundaries. After you take a deep breath, let Saturn take over and begin the paring down process. You may find a way to sneak in a few things you didn't think were possible previously.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
With Mercury still in retrograde, now is not the time to sign any contracts or make any kind of commitments, particularly big ones. Instead, look within and use this week to get organized so you can take action later. Wait to say, "I do" to your dream dress or select your bridesmaids until after the 25th when Mercury is finally moving forward again.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your ruler, the Moon, is in conjunction with Ceres, making for a whole lot of female energy. Do you need to sort something out with your mother or future mother in law? If so, this is the perfect opportunity to clear the air and smooth over any tensions that may have arisen between the two. Have them both over for tea or a glass of wine and see what happens!
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
The Sun, the ruler of Leo, is in staid and structured Capricorn now. This is a great time to organize your bridal party and meet with potential vendors. Capricorn gives you the ability to know exactly what you need and precisely how much you can afford. Just don't ride people too hard, and try to have some fun/relieve some stress amidst all of the planning.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Vesta, the asteroid that rules your sign, is now in Aries. Ruled by Mars, Aries tend to get what they want one way or another. With your natural Virgo precision, you know what you want but often have a hard time expressing those desires. Not this week! Aries is direct and forceful so channel this energy to speak up and ensure your voice is heard.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
With Venus making a disharmonious aspect to the asteroid Chiron, the wounded healer, all of your hidden fears about getting married and planning a wedding in general may just be surfacing. Don't pile on too much work or too much guilt right now. Breathe through it and delegate those duties. You're a natural people person so turn to a trusted friend for some advice and let your skills work for you so you aren't overwhelmed.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Pluto, your ruler, is currently making a disharmonious aspect to Jupiter, which can dampen your spirits and send you even more into isolation than usual. There's nothing wrong with taking to your bed (Scorpio does love to hide undercover) and wording your invitations, searching for design inspiration or anything else that requires solitary work.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
With Jupiter in retrograde and making an opposition to dreamy Neptune, you'd be wise to avoid making any over the top commitments right now. A horse drawn carriage as your wedding transportation may sound amazing today, but when Neptune pulls away it won't seem like such a smart idea. Keep your head on your shoulders and nail down the little details this week.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Saturn, your slightly taciturn ruler, is enjoying a stint through Sagittarius. This brightens your somewhat serious mood and makes it a good time to treat yourself. You don't always have to be so responsible and thrifty. Think of one fun splurge you can add to the wedding.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You're the energizer bunny now that your ruler Uranus is out of retrograde and firmly moving ahead in the fire constellation of Aries. Just be careful that you don't go too far out on a limb with financial and time commitments. Bring a stable Capricorn or Virgo with you when you're making decisions. Rest assured though, this is a great week to get a lot accomplished.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Your ruler, Neptune, is making a harmonious aspect to Mars, which is in Scorpio and like Pisces is a water sign. That's a lot of spiritual energy for you to capture so take the time to harness it. Do you have your vows written? Do you have someone to officiate yet? Perhaps you want to add some candles or incorporate religious readings into the ceremony. Look into it this week if so.
