We have just entered Scorpio Sun season, and for three zodiac signs, this week could very well be challenging. What starts on October 23 and lasts until October 29 could be what these three zodiac signs call our 'make or break' moments. This could range from how we handle certain delicate aspects within our romantic relationships to what we do under pressure at work.

With Sun trine Saturn on October 24, accompanied one day later by Moon opposite Venus, we might experience the kind of romantic upset that has us thinking perhaps a little too deeply. Is this where everything changes, and if so, are we ready for this seismic change in our love lives?



The week also brings us an Aries Moon and a Full Moon in Taurus. When our Moon squares Pluto on the 28th, we may take the entire concept of transformation and go too far, perhaps making our new change irrevocable. We have to think before acting during the week of October 23 - 29, 2023.

Too much Jupiter energy is influencing our every move. Mountains out of molehills may be a cute cliche, but this is what we'll be making this week, so we must be careful where we put our creative energy.

Three zodiac signs rough weekly horoscopes on October 23 - 29, 2023:

1. Leo 

(July 23 - August 22)

You may not immediately understand that what you're experiencing this week, October 23 - 29, 2023, is 'rough' per se, as it all seems to be going your way. That's part of what's happening. You are blind to the effects of your actions during this time, and so, while you're in the mindset that everything is a green light, what's happening is that you are ignoring certain important things to 'believe' that everything is a green light for you.

You have great intentions this week, and had there not been an Aries Moon in the sky and a Taurus Full Moon to pump up your ego to its full height, you might even be thought of as altruistic. What's going on, however, is that because you believe so fervently in what you're doing, you have tunnel vision, which disallows you from seeing your effect on the people around you. You will step on heads to reach your goal but tell yourself that those heads need this magical touch for 'their sake.'

We have many transits in opposition this week, and you will deny their presence in your way. This manifests in your life because you simply won't consider other people's feelings. You are so hellbent on your way, style and opinion that you naturally believe everyone is on your side. You aren't stopping to hear anyone else's opinion. You are sold on your own, and you will do as you like ... thinking, or rather, pretending it's for the good of all.

2. Scorpio 

(October 23 - November 21)

You will experience a great and harsh week because you are highly emotional during this time and everything seems to be either inspiring you or taking away from you. You might even start to kid yourself that the harder portions of the week, during October 23 - 29, 2023, are meant for you to learn from, and while that does sound wise, you'll also see that you're not doing as much learning as you should be.

In other words, during transits like Mars opposite Jupiter and Mercury opposite Jupiter (on October 28), you will know that the obstacles that lie before you are there to help you grow. While that seems perfectly reasonable, what you'll do 'to grow' is not what the lesson requires of you. What you can look forward to seeing this week, Scorpio, is a lot of denial. You will deny that serious change is required, not flippant decision-making and insensitive reactions.

This Jupiter overhaul will have you bouncing in and out of good and bad moods, which may be what gets to you most. You rely on your stable mood to get through your everyday life and don't like this fickle feeling of being unable to commit to an emotion. Old memories may thwart you during the week, and there may also be past relationships that rear their ugly heads, signaling for your attention. Be aware, and stay calm.

3. Sagittarius 

(November 22 - December 21)

You are particularly tuned into Jupiter energy. While you can usually make it work for you, you might want to consider the many Mars and Pluto transits that could make decision-making a harsh reality. If there's something on your mind, the universe practically begs you to pause and think things through before acting.

This week's Full Moon will bring out a side of you that may feel good to you but will come off as harsh to others. This occurs on October 28, and it will be on that same day that you experience the transit of Mercury opposite Jupiter. These forces may make you feel overly confident and perhaps even rude. Watch your tongue. Think before you speak during this time.

While repressing speech is not your style, you must get in touch with the idea of self-protection. Just because you feel you have the right to say what's on your mind and do as you please doesn't necessarily mean there won't be repercussions. What you think is 'cool' may hurt someone's feelings, which won't make you feel good about your choices. So, take a breath, step back and think before you make any 'big' moves.
