Want to run away from home? The 3rd and 9th houses of the birth chart show travel inclinations.

ARIES or MARS in a travel house inclines the native to seek adventure, excitement and highly active recreation while traveling. Sports, whether competitive or solitary, are often a favorite playtime.

TAURUS or VENUS would just as soon stay home and travel via National Geographic. But if venturing beyond a comfort zone would prefer to visit art museums, attend concerts and shop for treasures of aesthetic value for the home.

GEMINI or MERCURY enjoys brief and diverse visits to many destinations rather than lengthy stays in one new spot, and enjoys viewing these from a variety of perspectives. Chit-chatting with tourists and the locals is also a favorite pastime.

CANCER or the MOON is a homebody, so if travel is chosen, it may be done with a real estate purchase in mind. It enjoys the history and traditions of a location by trying local cuisine and acquiring antiques.

LEO or the SUN in a travel house values expanding personal identity and love of life through exposure to new locations. Traveling to classes or workshops for both the subject matter and meeting those in attendance is a likely option.

VIRGO may travel for work opportunities or health benefits. So much the better if the pet pooch can come along – even participate in a dog show.

LIBRA wants to travel with a partner, or to find one, so singles and couples cruises are attractive. Libra seeks artist colonies and businesses that cater to refined tastes.

SCORPIO or PLUTO wants a secret hideaway for passionate interludes, preferably around water. High credit card debt may be incurred as a result of being fully focused on the escapade.

SAGITTARIUS or JUPITER loves to travel far and wide for both cultural expansion and spiritual awareness. It will go to the ends of the earth for just one moment in the presence of its guru, and consider it well worthwhile.

CAPRICORN or SATURN doesn’t want to spend a lot of money on travel, unless the trip offers career advantages or addresses family obligations. Capricorn values the history of a new location and may acquire antiques there.

AQUARIUS or URANUS attracts one to foreign cultures, even if a new language must be learned. Either may travel via the internet or in a group, and may seek friendships once at the new destination.

PISCES or NEPTUNE is the Triple Crown of Surfing. They may travel from their spirit; however the use of alcohol or drugs may ultimately lead to sacrifice and leaving a relationship behind.
