Weekly horoscopes: Oct. 17 – Oct. 23
You will do whatever it takes to live the life you like. You tried to like the life you were living, but this only resulted in compromises, delays and a heap of disappointment. Mars isn't an easy planetary energy to manage. It feeds on conflict and it can be relentless in its pursuit of what it wants. Named after the Roman god of war, it's responsible for much of the strife we're experiencing nowadays. However, Mars is also the planet that's most connected to our drive and ambition, and when it's triggered — like it will be on Oct. 19 when it conjoins Pluto — you will push for what you want and you won't take "no" for an answer. It's time to put yourself first.
