Weekend Forecast: On Friday, Mars moves into your eighth house of secrets until March 11, pulling back the curtain on issues you’ve tried to keep out of the light. Whether you’ve been sidestepping a sensitive situation or tried to prevent others from seeing the real deal, be prepared to face the music. You might have a hard time figuring out if you’re coming or going with the onslaught of emotional highs and lows you’ll experience. While you may not be able to control your feelings, you can control how you react to them. Keeping your paws firmly planted on solid ground could be a challenge, Lion, but remember that you’re in charge of what comes out of your mouth. Breathe before blurting. On a more positive note, the eighth house also rules transformation, giving you the power to turn a troublesome area of your life into something meaningful. Take the first steps on Friday. The fiery planet also stokes your passions for the next six weeks, infusing you full of bold bravado to go for what—or who—you desire. Warning: The emerald-eyed monster could rear its ugly head and bring you into possessive terrain. Tame the urge to mark someone else as your territory. Love planet Venus balances the intensity of Mars on Friday as it slides into Aquarius and your seventh house of committed relationships until February 25. Capitalize on the planet’s cooperative vibes and smooth out any rough edges with your other half. If you’re on the prowl for a partner, put yourself in a loving state of mind by starting with yourself. Indulge in some pampering and a new outfit, and then get out on the town to show it off. If chemistry has been simmering with a certain someone, now’s the time to take it to the next level. Help it along with a romantic dinner a deux this weekend. La luna lingers in your house of women all weekend long, making your female friends the ideal matchmakers. Let one of them set you up, even if previous attempts have fallen flat. This prospect could turn into someone who sticks around for the long haul.
