This astro wedding guide by astrologer Jennyfer Bayliss shows you when to marry in order to strengthen certain attributes of your relationship. So if you want a happy, lasting union, read on!
Did you know that the date you choose for your wedding day could influence your whole marriage? Of course you’ll have celestial blessings whenever you choose to tie the knot with the man of your dreams, but each sign has certain traits and benefits, and anything started during the season of a particular sign tends to take on some of those qualities. So if you’ve set the big day for June 19, your married life will have a Cancerian quality to it, and home and family will become extra important to you. Whether you’ve already named the day or are still searching for Mr Right, here’s what to expect from married life once you’re finally pronounced ‘husband and wife’.
Aries: The Passionate Pairing
If you marry during Aries, expect passion galore. It may well be a fiery and temperamental union and there could be a lot of competitiveness between you both, but making up after disagreements is all part of the fun for you funloving trailblazers.
Aries wedding style
An Arian wedding has lots of pizzazz. Choose a bold red theme and decorate with scarlet flowers and crimson candles. Be the first to get married at a brand new venue or at the place you first met each other.
Taurus: The Comfortable Couple
It’s a slow, sensual joining of souls that shapes a union made during this time. You’re likely to enjoy material wealth and the good things in life, and will work solidly together to achieve your aims. Joint pleasures will be preparing delicious food and enjoying intimate times together.
Taurus wedding style
For those marrying during this season, quality is everything but keep it elegant and understated, not flashy. An outdoors ceremony is ideal, with a simple, stylish dress, pastel bridesmaids’ outfits with matching soft-hued roses or pure white lily of the valley flowers.
Gemini: The Diverse Duo
If you marry under the sign of Gemini, your relationship will be blessed with the art of communication. Mental stimulation, gossip and laughter are all the hallmarks of this marriage. There’ll be a lot of half-finished projects around the home, but who cares when it’s variety that spices up your lives?
Gemini wedding style
Have an informal, buffet-style reception so that guests can mingle and chat. Choose blue or yellow for accessorising flowers (unusual ranunculus are perfect) and allow plenty of time for speeches, tales and witty anecdotes about the bride and groom.
Cancer: The Caring Couple
Getting together under the sign of Cancer means you’ll be both caring and cared for, big time. It’s you two against the world and home is where your hearts are, the hub of your universe and where all social interaction takes place, especially in the kitchen.
Cancer wedding style
An antique lace dress or family heirloom is perfect for a Cancerian wedding, and choose colours of the Moon: white, silver or soft grey. Wear pearls and carry an old-fashioned posy. Make sure guests feel nourished; family-oriented gatherings are auspicious.
Leo: The Star-studded Couple
This is the sign – and the season – of love, romance, fun, and drama. Aside from the promise of better weather, it’s the sense of theatre and occasion that marks the union at this time of the year as special. You’ll be the couple everyone else secretly wants to be.
Leo wedding style
Choose gold as an accent colour and add a fairytale twist with a horse-drawn carriage or gold Rolls Royce. Bold yellow or orange flowers are ideal and a tiara is essential for the nuptials of the most regal sign of the zodiac.
Virgo: The Clued-up Couple
You both enter marriage with an air of precision and industriousness. You know what you want – perfection – and you’ll achieve it, as you will hone your relationship until you are a smooth-working unit. Nutritious food and fitness are important to you for a long and healthy life together.
Virgo wedding style
Pure white is perfect for the Virgo wedding, although earthy or neutral tones in natural fabrics – silk, linen or cotton – are also appropriate. Lilies or other white blooms are ideal, and keep it ‘green’ with an outdoorsy, eco-friendly reception.
Libra: The Elequent Equals
This is one of the most harmonious times to get married, as Libra is the sign ruling partnerships, beauty, diplomacy and balance. You’ll be able to discuss anything and everything calmly, though actually making a decision may not be so easy as you always see each other’s point of view.
Libra wedding style
Utterly beautiful and stunning in its simplicity, the Libran wedding takes on a light and airy feel. A chiffon Grecian gown, a trailing bouquet of fragrant flowers, harp music and sweet treats to tempt the palate are all perfectly appropriate.
Scorpio: The Enigmatic Duo
If you crave mystery and high drama this is the right time for you to wed. If you fancy eloping, so much the better! There will never be a dull moment as you’ll thrive on intensity and intimacy. Trust is everything in this powerful union.
Scorpio wedding style
Wear black, carry ivy and lilies or marry at night with plenty of candles for added atmosphere. A gothic castle is an ideal location for a Scorpio wedding and a small gathering of close friends and family is more in keeping than anything lavish.
Sagittarius: The Adventurous Couple
It’s often adventurous or philosophical types who plan a Sagittarius wedding, where spontaneity is more important than detail. You’re likely to be big travellers or find that life together is a fascinating journey, with plenty to learn about the world and each other. Laughter is key to this union.
Sagittarius wedding style
This sign is all about fun, so make your wedding special by introducing elements from other cultures. Purple is important for this sign and suggests spirituality, so add hints with lisianthus flowers, or wear a stunning velvet cloak as the weather cools.
Capricorn: The Powerful Pairing
This is a sensible and serious union, based on pooling strengths and building a dynasty. Your marriage may be seen as the pillar of a community, one that is made to survive all of life’s inevitable knocks. Others look up to you as respectable and accomplished.
Capricorn wedding style
Traditional values suit the tone of a Capricorn wedding. The local church where the vicar is a long-time family friend is perfect, with music from a choir or string quartet. A classic ivory dress, with long veil and roses, is both tasteful and dignified.
Aquarius: The Daring Duo
Those who marry at this time like to flout tradition. Free spirits and free thinkers, you’re likely to be each other’s best friends as well as lovers, and you value your independence. Your home will be filled with friends and technology, and you may be seen as quite unconventional.
Aquarius wedding style
Choose a short, neon blue dress or something sparkly as befits the electric and unorthodox quality of Aquarius. A quirky ceremony at a registrar’s office, an elopement to Gretna Green or a Las Vegas wedding is perfect for added shock factor.
Pisces: The True Romantics
Dreamy, romantic and glamorous are words that typify the marriage made under the sign of Pisces. You may feel as if you melt into each other, not knowing where one ends and the other begins. If you want to be there for each other in every way, this is an ideal time to wed.
Pisces wedding style
Soft, floaty dresses with accents of watery blues and greens complement the Pisces wedding perfectly. A simple beach wedding acknowledges the water element of the sign, which also rules photography, so capture and treasure every beautiful moment.
