Sweet Virgo, as the nurturing earth mother of the zodiac, you’ve been dreaming of your wedding day for years. With communicative Mercury as your ruling planet, you’re a serious and active listener to your S.O., a fiercely loyal friend and incredibly sharp-minded and hard-working. Your Virgo horoscope for your wedding planning year will find you tapping into your natural affinity for everything lush and lovely with romantic, but not overdone details.

Your Virgo traits will need to be carefully managed as you plan your wedding. You know better than anyone that once you set your mind to a task, you would rather die than have to abandon it before it’s done. While your work ethic will certainly come in handy, there will be times when you’ll need to be more flexible and let go of some of your perfectionist tendencies.

Here’s your Virgo horoscope (for those with birthdays between Aug. 23-Sept. 22) for your upcoming wedding, from when you know you’ve found the best partner to where you should head for your honeymoon.

Your partner: The person with whom you want to start a family

As the ultimate representation of fertility and maternal instincts, you’re probably already itching to start a family, Virgo. The person who just screams mother or father of your children is definitely the one for you, according to your Virgo horoscope.

Your getting engaged reaction: What a perfect proposal; I just wish (super-minor detail) was different

You live in the details and accept nothing but perfection from yourself and those close to you, so it’s no wonder that one of your more infamous Virgo traits would kick in once you realize you’re getting engaged.
