Moon in Scorpio Astrology
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
— Nelson Mandela (moon in scorpio sun in cancer)’
In western astrology, people born with moon in scorpio are said to be emotionally intense, deep and powerful. A moon in scorpio woman or man is an all-or-nothing type of person who does not play games in matters of the heart and soul. They tend to be romantics on a quest to find their soul mate and they likely have an intense affinity and fascination with the opposite sex. They are exciting and fun to be around but earning their trust can take time, but when they fall head over heels they can become blinded with infatuation and advance the relationship too quickly.
Their hearts are actually very sensitive and they are guarded about who they allow to truly access it. Infidelity is generally an instant dealbreaker as Scorpios are highly jealous and demand loyalty and exclusivity from their partners and lovers. When they love, they love hard and devote themselves fully to the object of their affection. They expect the same in return and will have little patience for wishy-washy, indecisive partners who won’t commit to them the way they deserve.
There is likely to be a very strong undercurrent of feeling that fuels their libido. Scorpio moon sign people are often spiritually deep and they seek to find answers and to unravel mysteries of both metaphysical and physical nature. They desire some kind of meaning and enlightenment from their existence and death is something with which they are both fixated and terrified by. They may have a morbid fascination with death and what it represents in the literal and symbolic sense.
They themselves experience life as a journey through which they can develop and grow as a person. They will likely encounter a number of pivotal moments in their lives that spur them to change or evolve as a person. They view failures as a form of death from which they must be resurrected as a wiser, stronger person on the road towards self-actualization. They adore secrets and the prospect of uncovering unknown hidden gems the universe conceals from most of the world. The mundane is boring to them and they are always digging deeper beneath what is obvious to tap into something greater and spiritually fecund.
The moon in scorpio person possesses remarkable tenacity and they have a capacity for profound love and compassion but also ruthless depravity. They are truly sensitive but their sensitivity is enshrouded by a tough exterior that protects their vulnerable inner self. They are both tender and fierce and this dynamic is part of what makes scorpio such a fascinatingly complicated sign. People with their moon in scorpio are likely to display remarkable courage in face of life or death situations. They fear death and yet death is their greatest teacher and motivator.
During youth, a moon in scorpio child may have been a bit mischievous and deviant but also private and aloof. Nevertheless, they may have found that people are naturally drawn to them. They have a magnetic charm that is subdued and almost effortless. They exude an aura that is mysterious and often intriguing. They likely have their share of admirers who want to get to know them better but only a few very close. Even if their personality is mostly extraverted, they are likely to require a fair amount of solitude and there may be aspects of themselves that will always be a mystery even to those closest to them.
It is not wise to cross a moon in scorpio person – they won’t soon forget it! A scorpio moon sign man or woman is likely to experience emotions in an amplified way. People who try to sabotage or betray them will either get shut out of their lives, treated coldly or get added to the scorpio moon person’s revenge hit list. Scorpio moon people respond to things in an intensely emotional way that may not always be apparent. They have a tendency to remember both slights against them, and kind gestures long after other people have forgotten them. They keep score and can wait a long time to get even with someone who has wronged them in some way. In this regard, Scorpio moon sign people can be rather ruthless and calculating.
Individuals with moon in scorpio are said to possess an indomitable spirit and ample willpower. They believe in themselves and they are able to rebound when setbacks befall them. They are capable transforming and reinventing themselves periodically as part of their emotional growth and self development. They strive to fulfill their potential in life and they may also feel compelled to inspire others to do the same. They are mentally tough and prepared to confront the obstacles and challenges that life throws their way. They may also be rather temperamental and can display a mean streak like no other. For the most part however, they are convivial and engaging. They may have a colorful sense of humor and a mordant wit that can sometimes catch others off guard.
A moon in scorpio man or woman in love is bound to be super passionate and affectionate. They may exhibit a very aggressive and direct form of flirting that is physical and very hands-on. The Scorpio moon person has loads of libido energy and they can get a little wild and out of hand at times. Other people might get intimidated by how strong they can come on and they may inadvertently run them off. That’s okay, since the scorpio moon person wants someone who can handle the heat anyway. Those who can handle it however will be rewarded with a faithful lover who will stick with them through thick and thin as a loyal and devoted partner and confidante.
