There is a very intense New Moon in Scorpio taking place today.
Have to say, this New Moon could be something of a doozy. When a New Moon takes place, one of the things which influences is the astrological action taking place just after it.
In the case of the New Moon in Scorpio TODAY, the first alignment to perfect after the New Moon is fairly heavy duty! It's clash between the two most incendiary Mars and Pluto.
Adding fuel to the fire and fanning the flames is that Mars and Pluto and both planets strongly associated with Scorpio, the sign the New Moon will be in. Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio and Pluto is the modern ruler of Scorpio.
So all in all, this is not so much a New Moon as it's a massive lunar explosion!
On one hand, it's a time to watch your temper and stay away from anyone who you know has a cruel streak.
On the other, the upside of Mars/Pluto's clash is that it's drive (to the point of compulsion and obsession) and (within the confines of a love relationship) could be very passionate and sexy.
The dark side is there could be fury and even violence, so take care! Regular readers know that I am not one to focus too much on the dark side but in this case, the warning seems justified. More than likely, for most people, this will be a creative, magical, if a little tense time. However if you are already in a situation or relationship where there is a threat or menace, be extra careful.
All that said, of course, this is still very much a New Moon to use as a tool for manifesting. The energies of it are so intense, wishes will be hotter as well. Think about your ambitions and think of how to make them happen in ways that will suit everyone - that is another way to work with the New Moon energy.
