That includes relationships. Getting married and proposing are two huge moments, and doing so when you know the stars are perfectly aligned can be comforting. Here, Princess Diana's former astrologer Debbie Frank shares an insight into the best dates to pop the question and tie the knot in 2021, according to your zodiac sign.
