Scorpio is a water sign and the eight member of the zodiac, believed to rule over Mars and Pluto.
The sign is often associated with truth and resourcefulness but also stubbornness and jealousy.
Astrologer believe people born under the sign of Scorpio can be passionate, assertive and determined to seek out truth or achieve their goals.
Today, this sign dominates two of the most important celestial bodies in the skies – the transit Sun and the darkened New Moon.
The New Moon in Scorpio is said to be a very “dramatic” and very “intense” aspect in the horoscope charts.
According to astrologer Marina of MarStars Astrology Insights, the combination creates a very passionate sign.
She said: “This is a wonderful time to start any kind of healing processes.
“It might be a wonderful time for the purification of your body, of your mind and of your soul.
“So try to do something and try to do something small or plan something big, which will really help you transform your energy.”
The astrologer said Scorpio is also a well-known sign of separation.
This particular energy might help you let go of things you no longer need in your life or past events you have been clinging onto.
Seek out any “blockages” and “memories” that are weighing you down today and dispose of them with the aid of Scorpio.
Marina said: “Try to think about what will help you to transform those things.”
Generally speaking, New Moons are good for new beginnings but perhaps not on this date, when the negative energies of Scorpio linger on the sidelines.
It will take some effort from you to reap the benefits of this astrological alignment but Marina believes it will be worth it in the end.
The next two weeks after the New Moon will be a better time for you to start new projects and new endeavours.
You will find yourself re-energised once the Moon’s bright glow returns at night.
Marina said: “Think about what you would like to transform in your life, find out in which house the New Moon would fall in your chart and try to focus there.
“Try to start something and remember it’s very important to take action because if we are just waiting for things to happen, usually the opportunity can come and go.
“Our task is to take this opportunity or to search for the opportunity in some cases.”
