Couch surfing, anyone? With high-octane Mars decamping to Pisces and your nomadic ninth house from Friday through March 11, youre itching to break out of your bubble and explore terra nova. A weekend adventure out of town could be just what the cosmos ordered to reboot your optimism and lower your stress levels. Dont despair if youre tethered to home base; you can still break new ground in your own backyard. Seek out social events that open you up to people from different cultures or provenances. Learn something new: take a Thai cooking class or try your hand at tango or Tai Chi. Fiery Mars also activates the truth-teller in you–possibly to a fault. Whether its letting your bestie know what you really think of her new boo or sharing the gory details of a health issue, think before your blurt, Crab. Ask yourself if you would want to be on the receiving end of one of your diatribes. TMI or tactless commentaries could create rifts in your relationships. Also on Friday, loveplanet Venus shifts into Aquarius and your erotic eighth house until February 25, cranking up your desire for some one-on-one time behind closed doors. Rawr! Your libido may be in overdrive, Cancer, but youre also looking for something that lasts. That said, guard against staking your claim on another person. No one wants to be owned, so turn down the volume on any possessive feelings that rise to the surface when it comes to you-know-who. If youre in someones face for too long, take a step back and flip the focus back on yourself. When you amp up your own X Factor by making your world interesting, you naturally attract others into your orbit. Let em come to you–theres a greater chance theyll stick around for the long haul that way.
