Having Moon in Scorpio indicates that we value our privacy; that we are capable of considerable emotional intensity and passion; that we need to probe beneath the surfact of experience in order to secure a deep and solid foundation for ourselves; and that we need to experience our power to use our own and other people’s resources effectively. When our real feelings are denied or our real needs unmet, we may easily resort to detrimental Scorpio behavior patterns – obsessions with secuality or money, expressions of revenge or destruction, or demanding or manipulative behaviors. One of the difficulties of a Scorpio Moon is related to the fear of losing control or surrendering. Because of this fear, we may deny or conceal the softer, vulnerable facets of ourselves, thereby preventing ourselves from experiencing the real communion or union which we seek.
We may have internalized messages from our parents which enabled us to develop resourcefulness, endurance and strength of character, as well as the capacity to plumb the depths of experience. Our sexuality may have been awakened early through the intensity of family interactions, so that we were forced to come to terms with our own life force and death force. A Scorpionic parent, however, may have negatively influenced our ability to receive nurturance and to nourish ourselves. Perhaps such a parent was hostile and punitive, so that we developed considerable mistrust and learned to hide our feelings. He or she may have been dominating, intrusive or sexually provocative, leading us to fear being possessed or overpowered. Coldness or undue stoicism, as manifested in a ‘be tough’ attitude, may have prevented our internal child from receiving the tenderness and care he or she needed. Sometimes a Scorpio Moon suggests the early death of a parent, or a premature confrontation with realities of death or violence.
We who have Moon in Scorpio can reparent ourselves by recovering, accepting and expressing our feelings and emotional needs, not just our sexual desires. We need to contact our own core, to possess ourselves rather than others, and to learn how to constructively channel our passion. One of the tasks of our Scorpionic Moon is that of discovering our inner power and drawing upon our own capacities to meet our needs rather than manipulating others to give us what we are unable or unwilling to give ourselves.
Many interesting discussions:
The Sign of the Scorpion is one that is quick on the draw with emotions and the psychic abilities! So when you find Scorpio hanging out in the Moon (which shows us our emotions as well as other things) you find a person who’s emotional state can -on occasion- get the best of them. If you know and love a S/M person, don’t fret if they lash out on you emotionally, they will charge ahead pretty quickly. The saying “let bygones be bygones” really suits them when they are hurt. Unless you continue to hurt them, of coarse! Then the “Once bitten twice shy” saying becomes their mantra! Having a S/M means that you are more than likely a profoundly powerful Empath….SO! you really FEEL what others feel. Scorpio is a highly psychic sign and this extreme ability in your Moon lands you with exceptional empathy for others. Unfortunately for many S/M people, this ability combined with the famous Scorpio need to control lands them in the land of vices. More
