Marriage Wedding Date Zodiac Sign Astrology

The day a couple gets married they create a new life together. "Two people become one" and although you hold on to your individual personalities, as a married couple, your relationship has one of its own. Marriage is something that you grow, raise and nurture.

So, it makes sense that your wedding day is the creation of a life  a new life — one that comes with a zodiac sign that you two share with each other. Yep, the day you get married, and your wedding anniversary has an astrological 'birth date' just like your birthday. Surprise!

When you prepare for your wedding, whether it's after you've done the proposal or when you're young and dreaming of the day you find that special someone, you usually think about all of the wonderful things you want at your wedding to make it special.

Flowers, a beautiful dress, and tux, a music playlist ... it all adds up to help you create the perfect day for you and your sweetheart.

Have you ever thought about the time of year you'd like to get married? I'm sure to some extent that you have. Some people prefer the beauty of snow and cold weather in winter, while others like how the flowers all start to bloom at once in spring.

Beyond that, most people are familiar with what each wedding anniversary year but not the specific meaning of the time of year their wedding day has for their relationship. Sometimes picking an actual date that's special to you, you probably don't think too much about the time of year — like, say, what your horoscope says on the day your wedding falls on. 

So, if you wanted to get married in the winter time, you could have either a Capricorn or an Aquarius wedding.

If you prefer springtime, and always want things stable yet new, you could be preparing for an Aries-Taurus cusp wedding.

Whichever zodiac season you get married in, your marriage is going to be influenced by astrology in some way, just like your personality is influenced by your birthday's zodiac sign. Those who get married during Leo season might have more passion and romance than other marriages, for example.

No matter what season you tie the knot, each sign has its strengths. Sure, the strengths are all different, and if you ARE planning your wedding you might want to change your date to fit the sign you like most, but each sign's strengths lead to happy marriages.

Of course, it's still up to you and your partner to make the marriage actually work; I'm by no means saying you can write off your bad temper to being married during Scorpio season, but you get my point.

The meaning of your wedding day just adds to your overall personality as a married couple, and down the line when children enter the picture, a family, too.

And if you are crazy organized and think of everything while you're planning your wedding, knowing your wedding date's zodiac sign might just be something you want to prepare for. So, keep reading to find out what that sign is and just how it says about your marriage.

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Aries Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

Getting married during Aries season means you are in for the ride of your life. Couples who marry around this time find that their marriage is full of passion and fireworks — and not just in the bedroom. You challenge each other to get out of your comfort zones and try new things, which makes every day feel like a new adventure, and your influence on one another means you’re always striving to be better people.

Aries marriages also see a lot of determination; just because you don’t always see eye to eye doesn’t mean you’re going to give up on each other. On top of that, you don’t hold grudges; sure, there might be some big fights, but chances are you’ll be in each other’s arms by the end of the night, totally forgetting what the fight was about.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

Taurus Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

Weddings during the Taurus season tend to produce some of the most down-to-earth couples out there. You rarely have relationship problems that you can’t fix and you don’t get caught up in what the perfect marriage should be; you just try to make your own marriage perfect. There will definitely be times when you find yourselves acting more stubborn than usual, but it’s only because you don’t want to go to bed angry.

Your marriage is a solid one, built on a foundation that is stronger than most. In other words, nothing and no one is able to bring it down because you trust each other more than you do outsiders. Taurus marriages value level-headedness when it comes to solving problems and taking the next steps together, rather than doing or saying things on the fly.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

Gemini season marriages tend to be reserved for the couples who are so close, they could be the same person. Marriage works best when you can be friends and lovers, but the two of you are friends for life. Not only do you love to do everything with each other, but you also know what the other is thinking at all times; this makes for a very intuitive and lasting relationship.

You want your marriage to be everything you’ve ever dreamed about, so all of the crazy vacation ideas and wild promises you made to each other once you were married are now going to come true. Gemini marriages are all about excitement and surprises, two things you are constantly trying to incorporate into your life together. Once you’re married, there will never be a dull day together.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

Getting married during Cancer season means that you are most likely going to have one of the more traditional marriages of the zodiac. This in no way means your marriage is going to be boring and predictable but rather based on love and commitment (and a whole lot of kids). You depend on each other for everything, including inspirational talks when you’re feeling down and someone to prove their unconditional love for you.

While it’s true that Cancer marriages can lead to a lot of moodiness and sensitivity, it’s only because you want your marriage to be perfect. You might be hard on yourself for not being able to do everything right all the time, but it helps to have a partner who loves you just the same. You might both get caught up in your heads often, so remember that marriage is about sharing and loving, and you’ll be happy for life.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Leo Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

Leo season marriages are not something that everyone can handle, but no one can deny that they aren’t incredibly exciting. You’re known as the trend-setters not just because of your beautiful home and matching outfits, but because of your strong bond. And not only is excitement vital to you but so are romantic love affairs. It’s often that the two of you will constantly flirt with each other; like every day is the honeymoon phase.

You can also bet on there never being a shortage of drama in your relationship; dramatics that only you will understand. People might think that you’re just making trouble because you can, but in reality, being loud and honest is just how you deal with your problems. You know that marriage isn’t going to be perfect, but you will always strive for it to be strong.

Virgo Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

Getting married during Virgo season is your best chance for having the strongest marriage. Not only are you able to make smart choices for yourself, but in your relationship, as well. You value having a healthy connection with your partner, which usually includes a healthy dose of alone time and time spent together.

Couples married during Virgo season often have such strong marriages because they believe in being very close friends before being anything else. And this connection is apparent to everyone around them, too. In fact, you set the standard for how couples should act after getting married because you do it so well. Consider yourself the poster child for happy, healthy love.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Libra Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

Getting married during Libra season is like having a perfect marriage without even trying (much). You so badly want everything to be perfect, that trying your hardest to make each other happy just comes naturally to you. You always make time for your partner emotionally, but also physically; there’s constantly a sense of romance in the air when you two are together.

To outsiders, a Libra marriage might seem a little on the reserved side; there’s definitely not a lot of PDA going on. But just because you’re not displaying your love for everyone doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist at all. In fact, you love showing just how much you love each other once you’re alone — and even when you’re out in public, your warmth radiates off of everyone around you.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Scorpio Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

If there was only one word to describe a Scorpio marriage, it would be electrifying. The love and passion that you have for each other is beyond any other sign. And as soon as you say your vows, you take marriage very seriously, making you one of the most loyal and faithful couples. So, it only stands to reason that if you only have eyes (and love) for each other, that your passion for one another would be out of this world.

A Scorpio season marriage is obviously intense, there’s no denying that – and while you two love each other fiercely, it’s almost like a love/hate relationship. Yes, you want to spend your lives together, but you also do kind of love that angry sex after a big fight. You’re stuck between “can’t like with ‘em” and “can’t live without ‘em” which makes for never-ending surprises in your marriage.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

Sagittarius Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

Having a Sagittarius marriage means planning for a life that is never, ever boring together. When you tie the knot during this time, you can almost always guarantee that there will be adventure and excitement around every corner, which only adds to your love for one another. Of course, there will be a few bumps in the road — as with any marriage — but you always try to learn from these bumps and make the most out of life.

A wedding during Sagittarius season means that your marriage will be spirited and friendly; you think of yourselves as best friends who sometimes argue and disagree, but always have love for each other. And, of course, you never worry about fitting into the cookie-cutter mold of what marriage “should” be. You like being the unique couple that does whatever you want without worrying about what others think.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

Capricorn Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

Getting married during Capricorn season means your marriage is going to be nothing but successful, so congratulations. You are both so invested in each other’s happiness that it would be impossible for you to think of your relationship as anything BUT successful. Your determination to power thorough arguments and snags only proves how hard you’re willing to work to make your marriage perfect.

You try to be a little on the reserved, or conservative, side when you’re in public (so no PDA), but you definitely personify the “freak in the sheets” saying. Just because you only ever hold hands and peck each other on the cheek when you’re around friends and family doesn’t mean your sex life isn’t mind-blowing. You like surprising each other in private and you love being the unassuming couple in public.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Aquarius Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

When it comes to Aquarius marriages, there’s “marriage rules” and then there’s “Aquarius rules.” The only thing you hate more than listening to other people’s opinions of your marriage is playing by the rules. You believe that since it’s your life, then it’s also your marriage — and no one else gets to say otherwise, no ifs, ands or buts.

More than partners, you two are best friends. Building your relationship on friendship only makes you feel better about taking it to the next step and tying the knot. You like having a unique marriage because it means you get to try out some more eccentric approaches to family, love (and sex), and handling problems. It might confuse some, but it makes total sense to you.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Pisces Astrology, Zodiac Sign, Wedding Day Anniversary

If anyone can make marriage look like a romantic movie where everything goes right, it’s a Pisces marriage. Not only are you two totally in love, but to be quite honest, you’re the closest thing to soulmates there is. You always try to inject a little romance into your everyday lives, whether that means breakfast in bed, making out like teenagers or just using your words to express how much you love each other.

There’s definitely a sense of curiosity in your marriage, which means you are always looking for new things to learn together and about each other. You can get a little overly sensitive at times, but it’s only because you want to be as honest with your partner as possible. You also have a relationship built on karma, which means you try to treat each other how you would want to be treated, which keeps pettiness far away.
