Scorpio Moon Sign People
Next weekend you have to help your Mother-in-law move forty years of accumulated belongings into a smaller home, necessitating hours of sorting, recycling, and memories of the past. You don’t even want to face it yourself. All of your friends suddenly have plans or are nowhere to be found. Who is going to help you? Why, your Scorpio moon friend, of course.
They are the surprisingly sentimental ones who will be there to help when the tasks from Hell need to be accomplished. And they will not complain one bit. Just don’t expect them to spring for pizza afterwards, they are very frugal. Since Scorpio rules the eighth house of death, these brave and generous spirited souls will even take you to the vet when it becomes time to have your beloved pet put to sleep because he can no longer move. Its days like those, when all your other friends have sudden commitments, you learn what a treasure you have in a Scorpio friend!
Scorpio moon sign people are deeply emotional, so much that even they have trouble sorting through all their feelings themselves. They need to find outlets to express all that emotion, so luckily they are active people who have lots of interests. They can let out that tender side as musicians and singers, writers and poets. They have an intense focus when they attempt to learn anything new, and go to great lengths to find every last detail about whatever their current interest is at the time. They make great researchers and scholars, as they like to share whatever they have learned too. They do this with great feeling and their enthusiasm is catching.
No Shades of Gray
It's Either Black or White, No Grays
Scorpio moon sign people are very willful and determined. They have great confidence that they will succeed, even if others do not share their positive outlook. They have good instincts and will be fine if they just follow them. Most have an interest in occult subjects, and all Scorpios have psychic ability. So you cannot fool them. They will look at you with a glance that can go from gently loving to steely anger really quickly. Scorpios know whatever you are thinking anyway.
They have faith in themselves and are independent people, capable of carrying out projects that would make others run screaming for the door. Any Scorpio, sun or moon, is a non-conformist. So unless you are family, close friend or partner, they do not really care what you think about them. They will politely smile and ignore your input. It’s not that they disrespect you (though they may, they have a strong moral code) they just know their own capabilities and limitations better than most. They can never be easily swayed.
Scorpios view life in terms of black and white, without any shades of gray. This makes it hard for them, because there are more shades of gray and life is not so easily categorized. These are enterprising people whom are very opinionated. It is very difficult to get them to change their minds, or hearts. Even if they are in a relationship that is not going well, it’s hard for them to give up if they really care that much. Scorpio moon sign people are close to their families and hate to make decisions that are not supported by them. They will though, in hopes that eventually everyone will see eye to eye. They are forceful and usually do not take no for an answer.
Scorpios change many times during the course of their lives, and can completely reinvent who they are. If they are not happy and feel people are bad influences, they will walk away from a negative situation and never look back. They are very strong, and can rise to any challenge, even if they start from a very hard and bleak looking scenario. They have spines of steel, and if you have one in your family, or as a friend, or are Scorpio yourself, you understand that pull to succeed and make your life better, and finally, the best it can be under the circumstances.
Scorpio and Research go Hand in Hand
Privacy Loving and Sarcastic Wit
Scorpio moon sign people and sun sign people are ruled by the phoenix and the eagle, so are great at both reinventing themselves and at soaring to the greatest heights of achievement. They also hate to throw anything away, so are great at running shops filled with recycled things. They have a very creative side and can think of many ways to re purpose what you think is an ugly piece of trash.
They are much more sensitive than most people realize, and surprisingly gentle and loyal to those they love. Scorpio moon sign people never forget those they love, and always take care of their own. If they start to call or want to see you very often, they are romantically interested. But if they are just talking about topics you have in common, and don't kiss or hug you, or express a desire to get to know you in a more intimate way, they aren't interested. End of story. They make people they are attracted to know about it right away. They are also very patient, making good teachers and leaders. In fact, they almost always emerge as the leader in any endeavor that they undertake. They can do it in such a way that nobody in the group minds either, because they have such tact and grace. Others are happy to let the Scorpio moon lead them, and just trust them instinctively, perhaps drawn to the confidence they exude.
Scorpios do have a quiet side, and love their privacy. They only let a few close people in and trust them with their innermost feelings and thoughts. These will be treated like family all their lives. They treat the rest with a detached interest and amusement. They possess a sarcastic kind of wit, and sometimes people don’t “get” their sense of humor. So Scorpio moon sign people may come off as serious at times when they are only kidding around. Again, this is not true if you are viewed as a love interest. Of course, they will be upset if they hurt your feelings that way and will be quick to set things straight. It is important to them that all their relationships stay on a civil level. After all, a leader has to set a good example.
Scorpios and Death
Since this sign rules the house of death, Scorpio people have a unique understanding of this transition. It is often said they are obsessed with death, but that is not really true. They just get that life is always changing and in transition, and for new things to happen, often old habits and even people have to die. They understand and deal with death more easily than most people. This does not mean it is any easier for them to accept the loss of a person they love, or that they do not care. These are very strong people, who will comfort everyone else first, and cry when they are alone and nobody can see. Unless you are one of the very few they trust to show their complete selves to, in that case what you see is what you get. But since people of this sign transform and change so much in the course of life, that is like dying a little bit too. So this is why they have a better handle on death than most people. This writer knows several people with the Moon in the 8th house, all morticians.
Scorpio Psychic Ability
Whether Scorpio is the sun or moon sign, they know what you are thinking, without saying a word. If they have a strong feeling that something is going wrong, or will go wrong soon, never ignore their warning, they are always right. They know if you are upset before you say a word, and know what the problem is. Never lie to them, or they will not trust you. In turn, they need to get off by themselves at times, because being open to all these energies can be exhausting.
Their Own Harshest Critics
If life is getting too difficult and the responsibilities are piling up, the Scorpio moon will tough it out, no matter how upset or sick they become. They are always reliable and do their best to live up to their high expectations of themselves. But later they need a long period of rest and solitude before they take on anything more, a healing of mind, body and spirit. Though perhaps not religious in a conventional sense, Scorpio moon sign people are very interested in world religions and philosophies, often reading several books about these topics at once. They accept everyone for whom they are, and what they are, always interested in a new point of view. Your Scorpio moon friend is the one you can call when you really need to sort out a problem at 3 AM, since they are up anyway. They are night birds and when schedule permits, can easily get turned around, sleeping all day and being up all night. All these quirks just serve to make them more lovable. How many people can you really count on in life when the chips are down? Your Scorpio moon friend is one of them.
Questions & Answers
Is a Scorpio moon woman innocent?
Only if she hasn't had much life experience. I know many have the misconception that Scorpios are sex addicts, if that's what you are getting at. Innocence is hard to define, there are many areas of life where one can be innocent. She certainly isn't the Whore of Babylon because she is Scorpio if that's what you are expecting.
What does it mean if I have a Scorpio moon and Scorpio in the 5th house?
A Scorpio Moon means you are an emotionally intense person, so intense that you may even have trouble understanding your own emotions and motivations. That gets easier as you are older and know yourself better.
You have a great focus on whatever interests you. You are very strong-willed and take life very seriously. You keep your opinions to yourself at times and can be secretive. You can be possessive and jealous in love. Try not to take things to extremes, a big Scorpio trait. You will hurt someone twice as badly if they hurt you once. Try to control that. You are stubborn, but the upside of that is perseverance.
You are a loyal friend and will do anything for the family and friends you care about. You are hardworking and people look to you as a leader.
The Moon in the 5th house means your romantic attractions will be influenced by your imagination and emotional needs. This is a house of romance, sports, children, and lovers. Since your emotions change often, it may be confusing for others, you run hot and cold. You are fertile and can probably have a big family if you want one. Because you are loyal, you will be the one to care for needy relatives, so may become bogged down by that if you aren't careful. But you will sacrifice for those you love.
I can't do more without a chart. If you do have Scorpio on the 5th house, you will feel passionate about the things I said the house rules. Besides the passion, Scorpio Moon people are not evil or bad, as many people are asking me ridiculous questions about that lately. I will be writing an article about that soon. Many misconceptions are going around about Scorpios, Moon signs in particular, and it's not from what I teach.
If you focus your emotions, you can be successful in whatever interests you, because you will stay with it and finish what you start. You want security in your life and will work hard for it. Try not to drink or do any drugs, alcoholic Scorpio Sun or Moon people can be nasty. You see things either as black or white with no in between, so that makes it hard for you to understand others at times. You are also creative and probably can read other people very well. That can be a plus in life.
My young son has a Scorpio moon. I’ve read so many articles about how it lends to a horrible childhood with major issues with the mother. Is this true?
No, not at all. Did you read the Scorpio Moon Sign article I wrote? Scorpio people are amazingly strong and driven. They are smart, and have sympathy to those they are loyal to. You couldn't have a better or more devoted friend.
People go nuts because Scorpio rules death and sex, and this misconception about the sign continues. Yes, in a love relationship they can be jealous, and if you hurt them, be sure they will hurt you back.
But I have a Scorpio son too. He has the Sun, Moon and Mercury there. He got straight A's all through school, and graduated college summa cum laude.. He's very dedicated and when interested in something, studies it to death. One was the guitar, he taught himself to play it and has had three bands (he's always the leader, as Scorpios are meant to be). He also is a student of martial arts for 20 years, an elementary school teacher, and all around good guy. When my husband, his Dad, died when he was in his mid twenties, he was and continues to be the model of a devoted son. Believe me, your son will be fine.
Try to channel his energies when you see he loves something. He is creative. He is expressive. He's capable of anything he wants to do because he has strong willpower. I never read anywhere about a tendency for Scorpio Moon people to have horrible childhoods, that's an outright untruth. And I never heard anything about them having issues with their mothers either. Sometimes people with Capricorn Moons have issues with Mothers, usually overbearing ones, but this doesn't mean they love them any less. Please don't believe such nonsense.
