The Moon's placement in astrology is key to understanding our innermost selves, our hidden thoughts, our motivations, and our dreams. The Moon represents intuition, wisdom, and mysticism. Scorpio has an often well-deserved reputation as a dark, brooding mystic himself. So what happens when the Moon visits its own Dark Side, landing in emotional Scorpio?

On its face, this appears to be a challenging position. But as with all challenges, therein lies the opportunity. Moon in Scorpio folk feel intensely about everything. Their entire worldview is shaped by the depth of their emotions. Moon in Scorpio is the person who answers a question before it's been asked, intuiting it from those around him. Scorpio Moon lends a spiritual quality to artistic pursuits as well; this is someone who feels "driven" to create, be it art or music or literature, but could never identify the source of either his inspiration or his drive.

Those with Moon in Scorpio have an instinctive understanding of the inner workings of the people around them, and are both highly compassionate and highly guarded as a result. Moon in Scorpio understands you better than you understand yourself, and will make you feel comfortable and accepted--but for this same reason, Moon in Scorpio may never fully trust you. These people possess a tremendous ability to control and manipulate others due to their almost supernatural understanding of others' psychology, but they rarely see a need to use this talent. Instead, they build emotional walls to protect their own inner selves from the manipulation and dishonesty they see around themselves every day.

Often scrupulously honest, Scorpio Moon individuals can be as off-putting as they are empathetic. After all, not everyone wants to hear the unvarnished truth. To someone with a Scorpio Moon, the unvarnished truth seems obvious, and he is often surprised when he is "just being honest" and discovers his honesty is unwelcome. It is important to keep in mind, when discussing serious matters with one of these lunar scorpions, that they do not judge you for your truth, no matter how sordid or uncomfortable it may be. They simply accept things as they are.

Scorpio is skilled at detecting insincerity, and a Moon in Scorpio is even more so. This ability to hone in on the machinations and manipulations of others, even those that are unconscious, sadly makes it difficult for Scorpio Moon to get truly close to anyone, as very few people will ever meet their stringent guidelines for complete trust. However, they are among the most loyal, forgiving, and deeply loving people in the world, and the select few who can pass their rigorous barriers will be rewarded with lifelong love and trust. Emotional to a fault, Moon in Scorpio rarely unleashes anger in words, but instead converts it to something else. A healthy and productive Scorpio Moon will learn to channel that excess of feeling into creative or interpersonal pursuits. Unhealthy or less evolved Scorpio Moons should be wary of allowing themselves to fall into dark depressions, or isolate themselves completely from the world.

Pretty spot on...Scorpio Moon here. Complete trust is a must! By Anonymous on 30-05-12 at 07:03pm
This is correct! I'm a Scorpio moon person, and this matches me To A T! By Anonymous on 31-07-13 at 04:50am
This about sums me up! I can see right through people's dishonest motivations to the point that I'm embarrassed by how pathetic they are appearing in my presence. Another thing, we don't seek out the truth, it just comes to us effortlessly. Lol By Anonymous on 03-01-14 at 01:19am
Very True... Well said... Truth unravels to us... we don't judge when someone else is honest to us... we just can detect lies easily, as we're experts at reading people... We can love fiercely, we can also fall into deep depression due to heartbreak... By Anonymous on 20-01-14 at 04:44am
Well I'm a Scorpio moon an I'd say It's pretty good on dot. Trust never comes easy for me.... I will test you an see what you do an watch from the sidelines on how others interact with you an how you treat your friends an family an I know how you treat them is how I'll be treated depending on what I do an i go according to how you treat an talk about other's.. even then I'm wary.

Incredibly, eerily spot on! I always say I'm untuitive to a fault, that having that intense degree of awareness can hold me back in certain ways. And I trust no one! By Anonymous on 21-02-14 at 01:12pm
Amen to that, I,m a Scorpio moon and know many Scorpio moon ppl lol all loyal and equally as crazy as I am. I started out in life as a traumatized child and then into a very troubled teen, but then I changed my life around and I started taking a class with a psychic/medium who taught me how to meditate and accept my emotions and sensitivity so I can use them to heal others. I had to face all the pain and abandonment I felt as a child and other issues I repressed. It hasn,t been an easy road but I am a deeper person because of it and that,s the Scorpio moon way lol.

Maybe this describes me when I was younger, idk about now. I'm not super emotional, it seems that sometimes I trust without thinking and I am easily manipulated it seems. I can be a charmer though! I have noticed however that with big emotional events (eg my dog dying this summer and this winter breaking up with my boyfriend) I seem unemotional at first almost unable to cry and let it out until it comes out later somehow. Maybe it's my dominating signs conflicting with my emotions. I am happiest with friends but still need independence, but often get lonely if alone for more than half a day! It was weird how I had a casual hook up 3 days after I broke up with my boyfriend, but
months later I kind of think it hindered the emotional healing I needed (Even though I didn't know I did). Gemini rising aires sun scorpio moon,

Why cant scorpio moons share their truth, why are they so guarded about their own intentions? By Anonymous on 20-03-14 at 07:46pm
