Planning your wedding is something that a LOT of people do — whether it’s when they’re very young or when they’re older and they start thinking about their future with someone special.

Planning your marriage, however, is a little different. It can be difficult to figure out when is the best time to get married, but looking to astrology and to your zodiac sign can help.



It’s easy to say that you want a certain venue and music for your wedding, that you already know what you’re going to wear, and that you have your rings picked out in your head already.

I know if I were interested in getting married, I would want to wear some killer shoes for my wedding. But is there a way to really plan for your marriage?

Sure, you can say that you want to start a family or that you want to travel the world with your spouse, but other things aren’t as simple to define – especially what age you’ll get married.


You could say that you’d like to get married in your 30s, but what if it doesn’t happen? What if you decide you want to be single or you haven’t actually found The One yet? What are you supposed to do then?

The age you’ll get married doesn’t rely on what you’ve been planning since you were little; it’ relies on maturity, mindset, and your personality.

I know that I don’t want to get married at all because I love being alone and I have a lot of things I want to do on my own in life. That’s not the only reasons why I don’t want to get married, but it’s a start.


My zodiac sign is also Aquarius, which means that I am more likely to stay single and unattached than getting married anyway. This combination of personal preferences and astrology makes it easier to know when you’ll get married.

All of the zodiac signs want something different in life and we’re also at different speeds when it comes to life, love, and our careers which you can consider before getting married.

So, if your horoscope tells you that you’ve always been mature and ready for the future, chances are you’ll get married young.

If you like the thought of focusing on your professional life or doing your own thing, then you’ll most likely get married when you’re older.


Like I said, it all depends on these factors, but it isn’t impossible to predict when you’ll get married because the stars are always working in your favor to bring good fortune and a happy future to you.

So, if you want to know what age you’ll get married, based on astrology, here is your answer.


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Best age to get married: Mid-30s.

Aries, you want your life to be full of excitement, thrills, and once-in-a-lifetime chances. So, the thought of being tied down before you're ready is a little more than scary to you - it feels like a bad idea.

That said, when you're in love, you're in it deep, which means you're much more likely to do something impulsive, like elope. Instead, it's better to save that impulsive behavior for something less binding like marriage.


This is an optimal time for you because you'll have finished with your wild years of doing stupid stunts and getting in trouble, but now you'll be able to see the world and do fun things with your spouse before settling down and starting a family.

You never want your life to get boring and stale, but it's important to experience some of life while you're single before jumping into marriage.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Best age to get married: Mid-30s.


Taurus, you are a much more grounded person than most of the signs, but that isn't always the best reason to get married.

You might try to convince yourself, your family, and your partner that you're ready for marriage much sooner than you are, simply because you want the rest of your life to start right away. Instead, you need to use this levelheadedness to really think about your options.

This is the perfect age range for you because you have a chance to confirm that the person you're with is the right one, yes, but it also gives you time to look for the one if you're wrong the first time around.

When you rush into things like love, all it does is make you less sure of yourself and your future. You're smart, but you need to learn not to rush and let life take charge.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Best age to get married: Mid-30s.

Gemini, you desperately want your relationship to be perfect in every way before you settle down and get married, so you try to take your time when making big decisions.


A lot of people see this a flaky behavior, but the right person will see this as your way of being thorough and making sure that you're comfortable with the next steps in your relationship.

You will inevitably debate for the longest time between wanting to get married and having kids to being single for your whole life.

So, by the time you finally settle on your decision, especially once you find the right person, you will just be entering your 30s. This will give you a few more years to work out the kinks with your partner before agreeing to marry and spend your lives together.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Best age to get married: Mid-20s.


Cancer, you are probably the only sign who can do this, but you are the type of person who believes that when you know, you know. You feel like you've already found your soulmate — and you probably have, — so it's not uncommon for you to start thinking about marriage and maybe even babies at a very young age; like, younger than most people could imagine for themselves.

And miraculously, you will have one of the longest and strongest marriages of all the signs. You know love when you see it and you've always been a romantic.

So, you see no reason to wait any longer than you have to just to tie the knot. Some might want to call you crazy, but when they see you and your partner together, they understand completely.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Best age to get married: Mid-40s.

Leo, you have a lot of plans for yourself in life and you also have a timeline of everything you want to accomplish while you’re young. That’s why you want to put marriage on hold for a while.

You know that there are a lot of things you have to look forward to after you get married, but before that can happen, you want to focus on yourself and your career.


To you, marriage is meant to be shared together — that’s what you’re getting married for right? So, you don’t want to be so wrapped up in reaching your professional goals and doing things for yourself that your marriage doesn’t last.

You want to make smart decisions about your future and if that means having to wait on marriage, then that’s what you’ll do.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Best age to get married: Mid-20s.


Virgo, you can get pretty excited when it comes to love and your future with someone special, but this excitement isn’t always a good thing. In fact, when you start thinking about how amazing and fun getting married will be, you tend to jump the gun a bit.

It’s not uncommon for you to go through with a quick marriage at city hall just to get it over with so you can start being married.

You would love to do it sooner, but you know that it’s better to wait it out for a few years. Of course, that doesn’t mean you’re going to stop planning and talking about it, but you know that you should learn how to be on your own first before getting hitched.

When you go from your parents’ house to a dorm room to marriage, you never experience being totally on your own, which is important.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Best age to get married: Mid-20s.

Libra, you’re a simple, straightforward kind of person. That means you don’t like beating around the bush when it comes to doing things that you want to do. So, when it comes to getting married, you want to do it when you feel like it, not when someone says you should.


And for someone like you – someone who is pretty amazing at being an adult and making the right decisions — it makes sense to get married young.

You’ve always been a consistent person with an open personality, so what your partner sees is what he’s going to get  — which means there won’t be any surprises or issues down the road (most likely).

Plus, you know what you want, simple as that, and you see no reason to weigh the pros and cons. When you make a decision, you always stick with it, for better or for worse.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Best age to get married: Mid-40s.


Scorpio, you have a fire in your blood and it makes you want to get that bucket list checked off, see as much of the world as possible, and sleep with as many cute people as you can find.

So, when it comes to marriage, you don’t want to do any kind of settling down until you’re much less passionate and hot-headed about life and love.

You can totally see yourself being single and unattached for a very long time and, until that mindset starts to change, you’re not going anywhere.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to get married later in life, especially if you know it won’t make you happy until you’re ready. So, by all means, keep doing you because that’s what makes you happiest.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 19)

Best age to get married: Mid-30s.

Sagittarius, not only do you have a plan for your future, but you also have a plan for your present, too. You want to eat a giant-ass burger for lunch, go on a ski trip this weekend with your best friend, and buy an expensive phone for yourself for your birthday. Yes, technically, these are all things in the future, but it’s more like the short-term future.


You are not someone to look so far into the future that you have no idea how to prepare for it. So, when it comes to marriage, if you’re not thinking of eloping, like, yesterday, you’re not interested in thinking about it at all.

You have sh*t you want to accomplish and all of it is stuff you can do in the next five years. After that, maybe, but you gotta accomplish finding someone special first.

CAPRICORN (December 20 - January 19)

Best age to get married: Early-20s.


Capricorn, I don’t think anyone is more mature than you are. Ever since you were a child, you’ve been like a small adult. You know how to make the big decisions, you know what it takes to be taken seriously, and you have your eye on success.

So, it only makes sense that you would already know what you want for your future years before anyone else does.

Chances are, you’re already in a serious relationship and have been for a few years now, so why not take the plunge when you’re young?

You’re a dedicated and loyal person who wants a lasting bond with someone special, and there’s no rule that says you can’t tie the knot when you want. You are ready to get married, after all.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Best age to get married: Early-50s.

Aquarius, the only rule you have for life is to do your own thing. That means moving to new cities every two years if you want, starting your own company, and staying single and unattached as long as you want.


So, when it comes to marriage if you’re not adamantly saying no, you aren’t thinking about it for years and years.

You love to make friends and meet new people, and you love having a good time, but you don’t believe that there’s anything you can do when you’re married that you can’t do when you’re single, too.

And the thought of possibly having to sacrifice parts of yourself for your partner isn’t something you’re ready to do just yet. When you finally feel satisfied with the single life, you’ll marry.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Best age to get married: Early-20s.


Pisces, marriage is so romantic to you that you probably started thinking about your wedding and what kind of person you would marry when you were very young.

You aren’t necessarily worried about what age you’d get married at, but you do know that the minute you find The One, you’ll be dusting off your “My Wedding Day” book and getting started.

You want love and you want a lasting love that you can share with someone special. And when you find that kindred spirit who makes you feel like the most important person in the world and wants nothing but happiness for you, you are more than eager to tie the knot and make it official.

And as someone with a young heart, it’s easy to see why you would want to marry young.
