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 confronting 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.

These individuals 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 as 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. It's 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.

It's Either Black or White With Scorpio Moon

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.

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.

Scorpios Are 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 three 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

Question: How bad is Scorpio Moon revenge?

Answer: I receive many questions regarding Scorpio Sun Sign People and Scorpio Moon People's Emotions, and first I want to be sure my readers understand this is asking two very different questions. The Sun position is the way a Scorpio person basically is outwardly, barring many other factors in a Natal birth chart/horoscope. A Scorpio Moon person is one whose MOON is in Scorpio, thus ruling the person's emotions. So please note the difference. I have written complete articles on both Scorpio Sun Sign People and Scorpio Moon Sign Emotions which interpret both positions. They are easily found on Google.

Also I find that many of you have terrible misconceptions about the sign of Scorpio in general. Sure, every now and then you get a Charles Manson. But the majority of Scorpio Moon Sign People (the ones I receive the most mail about) are very focused, intense, serious, leadership types, loyal friends and lovers, committed to whatever they care about the most. They are strong willed and smart. They have a sarcastic sense of humor.

I have mothers writing me who are afraid of their own children, who won't discipline them, and want to blame this on the child being Scorpio. They are usually helicopter parents who expect too much from a 5-10 yr. old, and want to know why their child is unhappy. Or "uncontrollable." Seriously. Most of these kids aren't brooding about their parents. Some of them are forced into too many activities and are just tired. These are parents who want to live vicariously through their kids and should get out of the house more. Scorpio kids are creative, and need solitude or at least some privacy time.

Also, your Scorpio BF or GF isn't a sex addict. Sexy, sensual, yes. Addicted? Probably not.

Now these people do have high moral standards and are slow to change their minds. They care deeply, so if you do hurt them, they will probably hurt you back. But then they will also walk away from you. A Scorpio at a point where he/she feels they need to get back at you has cared about you a lot and is at the point of no return. They won't leave until they get back at you, but by the time they resort to this, they are so over you. Don't take them back. These are intensely emotional people who are all in or all out. They see life in terms of black and white, no grays. Don't toy with their emotions and you can avoid this nasty scenario all together.

If your Scorpio is drinking too much or doing drugs, this is bad. Scorpios are moody, and this doesn't help their temperament. The other water signs are the same, Cancer and Pisces. Don't take any abuse from someone like this. But Scorpio people are not monsters anymore than any other zodiac sign. Ease up.

Question: I have a Scorpio Moon (5th house), Cancer Ascendant, and Virgo Sun (3rd House). What's your take on this?

Answer: A Scorpio moon is intense and very emotional. The 5th house rules romance, children, games, and sports. So I think you are a romantic and expressive person, who likes to have fun. Scorpios are serious though, so you need to take time to be sure before you get too involved with someone you don't really have feelings for. Because you are serious and strong-willed, sports and games are a good way to get some of that out.

Cancer Ascendant is the way others see you. You seem kind and pleasant, and people are drawn to you. You are nurturing and kind. You care a lot about family and close friends. Since the Moon is your ruler, you change a lot in little ways, but that's part of your charm.

Virgo Sun people are smart and witty, and the 3rd house rules communication, siblings, people in your neighborhood or nearby surroundings. So I think you are popular with those you are close to and have a close circle of both friends and places you frequent. Virgos are very health conscious, and so you eat well and exercise. You tend to be a little critical of others.

Having a Cancer Ascendant puts Capricorn on the cusp of your marriage house. So you are attracted to achievers who can give you a feeling of security. You are a down to earth person. You are willful and emotional, also fun to be with and knowledgeable about many subjects. You are kind of restless. I hope that helps.

Question: My sister, a close friend, and twin daughters are all Scorpio moons. I have Venus and Saturn in Scorpio in the 4th house. None of them treat me well --for no good reason, and I recently am estranged from all but one daughter. They all seem to lack feelings for others and are cold and unforgiving. Is this karmic? How can I break the cycle?

Answer: Your Saturn in Scorpio is the karmic, or teacher planet. Since it's in the 4th house of family, perhaps there is some lesson you are supposed to be learning from these relationships and estrangements. Especially the ones of your sister and daughters. Venus in Scorpio is passionate, but maybe you are turning your back on these people too soon without trying to work things out? It's a Scorpio trait to just walk away from people if you can't get along, but having done it myself, I find it's wiser to leave the door open.

It seems odd all these people would mistreat you for no reason, and I don't have a whole chart to interpret. It is karmic. If you want to break the cycle, you have to be the one to reach out and talk about the issues. And I don't know if you are ready to do this. You sound like you feel victimized, and maybe you were. There's really not a way I can answer this so well.

Scorpio Moon people are loyal and passionate. I see too many people using Scorpio Moons and Suns as reasons to scapegoat other people when that's not the real issue. Maybe some soul searching and real attempt to try to get along without blaming astrology for it is a good start. Good luck.

Question: Why do almost all Scorpios live a different, complex and hard life than other Zodiac signs?

Answer: I have never seen evidence of this in my astrology work or Natal Birth Charts after 42 years of practice and continued study. Where did you learn of this? I find that Scorpios often struggle with sexual orientation when they are in their 20s and 30s judging from work I have done with clients. This does complicate life for them. But before hundreds more of you bombard me with questions and misconceptions regarding this statement, I need detailed information and I really should be getting paid for the interpretations I am doing here on this group site. Some of you are writing to me 4 times or more and just adding more and more info. You aren't getting a free chart, much of what I am telling you is very basic. I don't have enough info to cast a chart so it's frustrating for me to see how many of you don't understand that Astrology is no longer "fortune telling."

Question: My Scorpio moon is in my 6th house. What does it mean?

Answer: The Moon represents your emotional makeup. In Scorpio, it is an intense one. The 6th house rules work, health, small animals or pets. The Moon here means your health fluctuates a lot because of your strong emotions. Your emotional state will affect the work you do and how accurate it is, also how harmonious your relationships with coworkers are. I think you are a leader in any workplace you choose. You could suffer from psychosomatic illnesses or be a hypochondriac, but Scorpio is a strong sign, and I believe you are honest with yourself.

Your diet is essential in the maintaining of your health, and many Scorpio Moon people suffer from IBS and other digestive or GI ailments. This can be due to nerves. You need to eat well and develop good dietary habits. You can also be a good chef. If you cook; this would be a good job for you.

Question: I am a Cancer rising, Gemini sun with a Scorpio moon. My venus is Leo. I was involved with a Scorpio who hurt me badly and I retaliated. I always find myself helping others and I am the one who gets hurt. I pray on it and deal with things for months then when I can’t deal with it I retaliate. What’s wrong with me?

Answer: Well, sometimes when someone hurts us very badly, our first urge is to retaliate. Since it was a Scorpio that hurt you, they can be sarcastic and sure know how to hit where it hurts. Plus you have a Scorpio moon, so you are no slouch if you really want to hurt someone either. Cancer rising is how others see you, and it's a gentle and kind sign, sort of nurturing and maternal. But Cancers have long memories and thin skin at times, and you may take criticism too seriously. It's hard not to. But I think you have other factors here that will help you rise above it, and don't think anything is wrong with you.

Your Gemini Sun means you are intelligent and playful, interested a little bit in many subjects. You learn quickly and like to go out and surround yourself with people and new activities. You get bored easily, also a Cancer trait. The Venus in Leo is your love and social nature. You are very generous to others and a great host to friends. I think you are popular in your circle, and this and the Cancer in you is why you help others so much. Since Leo rules your nature in love, you want to be treated like royalty, and expect a lot of attention. The Scorpio moon adds intensity to your emotions, but I think the Gemini Sun can help you to get a little detachment or perspective on a relationship.

It's great to help others, but even friends and loved ones can take advantage of us, so learn to say "no." It's not easy. I think maybe a Scorpio sun person is too serious for you and won't give you the attention you need. A Libra or even an Aquarius would be fun for you, air signs, which go with your Gemini Sun and work with the Cancer rising and Venus in Leo. Don't be so hard on yourself, we all can't be perfect all the time. Sometimes we have to choose our battles and decide what to take seriously and what to let go.

Question: Does your Moon sign mean that you are ruled by that sign's planet with your sign? Or that your inner emotions simply emulate the qualities of that sign?

Answer: Your Moon sign means your emotions are ruled by the traits of whatever zodiac sign the moon is in. Also, every planet of the 10 are in a zodiac sign too, so don't get so hung up on just your Sun and Moon. It's a small portion of an astrological chart.

Question: What does it mean if mean if I have a Scorpio Moon in the 8th house?

Answer: It's good, the 8th house is ruled by Scorpio. The Moon represents your emotions. A Scorpio one means you are very emotional, so much so that it can be hard for you to understand and sort your emotions out. The 8th house rules money of the partner, inheritances (so you can inherit money or land) sex, death and insurances. Many 8th house Scorpio Moon people are morticians. You would tend to get fixated on someone once your relationship gets to the sex part, so don't let it get so far before you realize you don't have true feelings for the person. You could also meet partners in a workplace. It's well placed here, and you have a good head for business. The thought of death isn't scary to you, and you may be present at the time of loved one's passings. Your emotions are fixed, so it's hard for you to change how you feel, you need convincing. You are a loyal friend and probably have people in your life who you knew since you were kids.

Question: Is a Scorpio moon woman innocent?

Answer: 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.

Question: What is the best match for a male with a Scorpio moon?

Answer: You need a strong person who can deal with your emotional intensity. Whatever you do, it's with strong passion. I don't know your birthday, but Earth signs are best with strong Scorpio influences. Also, water signs can be good, as Cancer is strongly emotional too, but in a more nurturing way, and more changeable than you. Pisces could work, but you have a strong will - the strongest - and a Pisces could be too clinging for you unless the person had other leadership or strong characteristics.

Since Scorpio influences are strong, try to channel your expressiveness into what are the "right" places for you. But you are capable of great tenderness towards those you love or anyone you perceive as weaker than you. You probably had trouble understanding your own intense emotions. You are very loyal to anyone you care about.

People who write me seem to have gotten it into their heads that Scorpios are all so dark and dangerous, but this is untrue. Any sign is capable of that, and they didn't learn that from anything I taught in my informational articles. Stay tuned, my next article will be on Scorpio Suns or Scorpio Moons and the facts they are not all criminally insane and don't hate their mothers (you wouldn't believe the mail I get)! I don't know your Sun sign, so I can't decide on other good options. I hope this helps a little.

You may write back with your sun sign and ascendant if you know it--remind me I said you could and have the Scorpio moon. I don't see these questions at the bottom of the articles, though I see the Titles. All of my questions from all the articles I have written appear to me on one page, so when a person comes back for more info, I can't really recall who they are. It's a lot of people!

Question: I am an Aquarius sun Scorpio moon, and I recently changed my high school to meet a Leo sun Scorpio moon. We are both so similar yet so different. He is like my mirror image -opposite but the same. Can we be in a romantic relationship or be just friends or best friends maybe?

Answer: These are all fixed signs, so it means you are both stubborn, or very persistent. But Aquarius Sun is opposite Leo Sun, so there is an attraction there. I have an article on opposites which may help you, let me get the URL: This can explain the dynamic between Leo and Aquarius. Aquarius is a nonconformist, and Leo wants loads of attention, and can be a bit bossy. But being opposites means you are correct about what you describe as the "mirror image" you are feeling.

The Scorpio moons mean you both have intense emotions. Since you are young, you may need more time to figure them out. But these are also strongly loyal feelings if you become close to each other. Being opposites means you both want the same things or have similar ideas, but have different ideas about how to go about it. Scorpio moons are intense and passionate, so because of your ages, if you do decide to get romantically involved, promise me to take it slow, OK? I think you can do better here with the Aquarius Sun, because you can be objective. He is Leo and wants to be catered to. There is chemistry here, just don't rush into anything sexual, OK? Scorpio is a very sensual sign, and if you do make that decision, make sure to use birth control. You don't want to do anything to adversely affect your futures.

It's possible you could decide to be friends, in which case you would be great ones. But I feel this going more in a romantic direction.

Question: Can you tell me about my chart? I am a Scorpio Sun, Scorpio Moon and Aquarius Ascendant.

Answer: I have a son with a Scorpio Sun and Moon, so this is an easy one! Scorpio people can be reserved, and it takes time for them to let others in. But once they do, they have warm hearts and are loyal friends. You are probably independent, strong-willed, and were from a young age. You are very emotional but may not show it to everyone. You are a leader, though depending on where your other planets are located in the zodiac, you may be able to "fool" others and pretend you are a team player. Not. When something interests you, you need to research every fact. It could be an idea, a culture, a sport, a cause to support, but you will give it your all.

The Moon represents your emotions, and they are very complex in Scorpio. You probably had trouble or still do sorting them out yourself because of their intensity. This doesn't have to be a problem, you just need to find a way to channel them. You are loyal and jealous in love but will love the person you choose with great passion. I bet you have friends that you knew for years, and many are older than you. You have been told more than once you are "an old soul." Your heart goes out to anyone you perceive as weaker than you and you will defend that person.

The Aquarius Ascendant is also in a fixed sign like Scorpio, so you are stubborn, or persistent, the better side of that. Aquarians like to be free though, so your ascendant makes you appear more approachable than you are. Aquarius means you seem intelligent, so others respect your opinions. Although Aquarians like to be free and sometimes seem detached, Scorpio traits also make a person crave "alone" time. So I think this is a good Trinity for you. Just try to understand or at least listen to other points of view. You don't have to agree. I would suggest water signs and air signs for compatibility.

Question: 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?

Answer: 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.

Question: I have Uranus, Jupiter, and Moon in Scorpio in 10th house. May I know how will they affect my life?

Answer: Uranus in the 10th house normally indicates an unusual profession, as it's the career house, and Uranus rules Aquarius, the sign of the nonconformist. You may do well in math, humanitarian projects, science, or electronics. You are innovative and will think of new techniques. You are strong willed and want to make a difference in your profession. Your status is ruled by this house too, so changes to that can be sudden due to Uranus. You may have many different jobs in your life.

Jupiter in the 10th house also means prominence and high standing in professions. You are ethical and professional in your business dealings. You are honest and reliable. Jupiter is lucky, so you will be respected, and may even seek political office. Normally Jupiter here is considered favorable. Higher education may be important to you. You will be respected and trusted. You also may travel much in your work.

Having a Moon in the 10th house, you want to achieve a position of prominence, especially in Scorpio. You are strong-willed and independent, and will work very hard for what you want. You may be in a position of high standing, or have a family who can pull some strings for you. Your Mother is likely to be a big influence in your life, and women will further your career. Also, Moon in Scorpio is sensual so that you can use your charm to your advantage here!

I see you being noticed by the public in whatever you decide to do. Sorry, but I can't tell more without a whole chart.

Question: My moon is in Scorpio, my sun sign is in Leo (in the eighth house), and my rising sign is Sag. My boyfriend's moon is in Sag, his sun sign is also in Leo and his eighth house cusp, and Scorpio rules Pluto. He tends to not understand the depth of my emotions but in many ways we do understand each other. I know Scorpio moon and Sag moon are complete opposites, but is there any way we could have a successful relationship?

Answer: I think most people can have a successful relationship if they care enough about each other to work on it. Too many people walk out at the first sign of trouble. My philosophy has always been if you break up once, you will always continue to do that, so a couple that breaks up instead of solving their problem will never make it as far as a successful relationship. That's a life lesson, not an astrology one because we can't leave our common sense at the door.

Scorpio and Sag are not "complete opposites," I don't know who told you that. There are 12 zodiac signs, so Taurus is opposite Scorpio and Gemini is opposite Sagittarius. Actually, Scorpio and Sag moons are zodiac signs next to each other, so close signs like that usually understand each other; this would be about emotions since they are your moon signs.

Since you both have Leo suns, I don't usually see many successful relationships with people of the same sun sign. They are usually too much alike. It's possible, but it's not a passionate match. I know a few couples of the same sign, but they act more like friends.

I think you are telling me both of you have your moon in the 8th house? You are more emotional than he is. Both being Leo, you both want a lot of attention and to be the King or Queen, so you are both high maintenance people. It's hard for two people like that to be together for the long run. I don't think it's a terrible combination, but that you are too much the same, and even the moon signs in zodiac signs next to each other isn't really a good romantic match. I would say give it a try; you may be surprised.

Also, interpreting what a planet in a zodiac sign is in is not anywhere near a whole astrological horoscope. So I answer the questions as best I can, but most of the people who ask me for this little bit of what a chart would be are getting a small window of what is really their natal birth chart. I have to spend a half hour on some of these questions as part of a group site I write on and am used to casting whole charts and getting paid for my time. So this feature leads people to believe they are getting more than they are, and my answers are not complete since I don't have the right information, just little bits.

Question: My Sun is in Scorpio. I am also a Taurus Rising and Gemini Moon. My boyfriend is Sun in Scorpio, Gemini Rising, and Scorpio Moon. That is a lot of Scorpio between the two of us. We both are late bloomers in life and find comfort in that. Can our pairing work with so much Scorpio in our charts?

Answer: I think it can if you are both late bloomers and are ready to put in some work on the relationship. It is a lot of Scorpio, and I don't usually like two of the same Sun sign, it's a lot like being with yourself. Also, Scorpio is a very serious and sometimes jealous sign, and Gemini takes a lighthearted and talkable attitude towards love, flirtatious and easily bored. So it's not the easiest of combinations. Your Taurus rising means you are devoted and will stay in a relationship no matter what the issues, Taurus is strong and can weather the storms. Gemini Rising is a flirt who isn't as deep and comes off that way to others, as rising signs do. Your Gemini Moon rules your emotions, and you crave some space and freedom, even for a Scorpio/Taurus. But his Scorpio Moon makes him deeper, and his emotions run very strong, he has it in him to be devoted and intense, as do you.

I guess I don't like the pairing of Scorpio/Gemini. Scorpio is so emotionally centered and deep. Gemini wants to discuss each problem, even if nothing gets done about it. Gemini needs words, where Scorpio wants actions. Gemini is ruled by the head, not the heart. But since you both have these influences, it will help you understand each other. I would give it a shot and see what happens at least. As you are mature, you may be able to work it through.

Question: What's your take on a Leo sun, Scorpio moon, Taurus ascendant?

Answer: This is a persistent or stubborn person, as Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio are all fixed signs. The Leo sun means the person is generous and outgoing, warm and friendly. Leos expect to be treated like royalty, so that can be annoying. They are also opinionated. The Scorpio moon is about the person's emotional makeup. This is a loyal, sensual person, a good friend, a sexy lover. Scorpios are independent, fearless, strong, but also have a soft side for those they care about. The Taurus ascendant is still stubborn but comes off a little easier, because Taurus is ruled by Venus. They love the outdoors, good food and wine, and the best of everything. They are sensible and reliable, as are Scorpios. It's not a bad combo, but learn to compromise more.

Question: I am a Scorpio Moon, Gemini Sun and Leo Rising and I honestly seem to be really struggling in my life in terms of work (as well as relationships). I do notice, perceive, feel and analyze a LOT which, instead of working in my favour, works most of the time against me. Also, I am having difficulty in making decisions. I feel stuck. I am 27 and I really need to move on in my life and find myself at last. How to change/program/navigate myself in order to finally decide and succeed?

Answer: Scorpios analyze everything to DEATH, and also Gemini is interested in many things. You are a quick study so learn about whatever interests you at the moment, but get bored. Geminis like to look at everything from all sides, and it seems like you can't make up your mind, but really you are examining all the information. Leo and Scorpio are fixed signs, so that could be the reason you feel stuck, both are signs which don't really like change.

Since you are 27, you may be starting to begin your first Saturn return. I think that's what's going on. Saturn is the karmic planet, and it conjuncts (gets very close) to your Natal Birth Saturn, or the place where Saturn was when you were born. I think some decisions are going to be made for you, soon Saturn will cause things in your life to change, and not especially in the way you wanted or planned. So Saturn may be change/program/navigating your life in a direction you may not have expected, but it will teach you something you need to learn. We all go through our first Saturn return around ages 27-30. I wrote an article about Saturn Returns which may be of some help you: This may not be an easy time, but it is an important one which is meant to bring you into adulthood. Don't be afraid, but it's not going to be an easy time!

Question: Aries Sun, Scorpio Moon and Rising dating Aquarius Sun and Capricorn Moon, I don't know his birth time, can this be a harmonious committed marriage?

Answer: First of all, since you are in the relationship, how is it going? Do you feel like you could have a harmonious, committed marriage with him? You should know depending on how long you have been seeing him, so if you don't, I am inclined to say no. Astrology isn't magic, you have Free Will and can change difficult aspects if you try.

Scorpio and Aquarius are both fixed signs and that should be troublesome. But for some reason, there are many Aquarius/Scorpio couples. So even though it's not your Sun signs, it does mean there is some chemistry there. Aries needs a lot of reassurance, and Aquarius MIGHT remember to say he loves you once a year, so that could be an issue. But Aries and Aquarius are Fire and Air, and are a good combo. The Scorpio Moon and Rising and his Capricorn Moon go well together, I like Water and Earth. He thinks you are sexy and is a little shyer than you. Capricorn Moon people want security in a relationship, so that goes well with the Scorpio in you. You are jealous and possessive. It's hard for him to express his emotions and you are very emotional. But maybe you can teach him a thing or two! I think it's a good combination, and unless you see major red flags, think you would be fine.

Question: What does it mean if I have a Scorpio moon and Scorpio in the 5th house?

Answer: 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.

Question: I'm a Libra, but my Sun is in the 8th house. My Moon and Venus are both in Scorpio. My moon is also semi-square my Sun. Is this why I feel more Scorpionic?

Answer: Yes, this is because your Sun is in the 8th house, the traditional Scorpio house. When a true horoscope or astrology chart is cast, we find a rising sign or Ascendant. It just worked out that yours is likely Aries, unless a house is intercepted. Plus you have a Moon in Scorpio, which rules your emotions, and Venus, which rules your love and social nature. So even though you are Libra, with an Aries ascendant (I think, I don't have enough info), the three "pieces" you have in Scorpio will cause your personality to have a strong Scorpio influence. So you are strong-willed and ambitious, and most likely achieve your goals. You are a loyal friend or partner and will help anyone you think is weaker than you or just needs help. The Libra sun warms you up a bit and makes you a little less serious. When you are interested in something, you will research it to death; I have my Sun in the 8th house too!

Question: Could you explain my chart? I have a libra sun, Scorpio moon and Aquarius rising

Answer: OK, as long as you understand the meanings of your Sun, Moon, and Ascendant are nowhere near an interpretation of a whole astrology Chart. That would take around 20 pages and I would need a lot more information.

The Libra Sun means you like to keep your relationships as peaceful or on the best terms as possible. You want to be half of a partnership in life, but also would do well as a partner in a business. You love beautiful things, but are ambitious and will work hard to get them. You are probably good looking and spend time on your appearance, and I am sure you love to shop. You are often the peacemaker when your friends are having a disagreement.

The Moon rules your emotions, and they are intense in Scorpio. You are very passionate about those people and causes which matter to you. You are a loyal friend, not scared to speak your mind, and try really hard to be true to who you are. If you are interested in a subject, you get obsessed and will study whatever you can get your hands on to learn it all. You have a very tender side with those you love, although some may find you intimidating.

Aquarius and Scorpio are both fixed signs, so you do like to get your own way, but your Libra Sun helps smooth that over. Aquarius is the way others see you, you may be tall, and as a nonconformist, often stand out in some way. You have different ideas or original ones, and can be very uncompromising with this rising sign and Moon sign. You like to shock others and to be seen as different, but that's OK, it's good to be comfortable in your own skin. Libra and Aquarius are both air signs, so you are intelligent and a good conversationalist. You also learn fast, so you are interesting.

Question: Can you share your knowledge about my chart? My sun is in Capricorn, my moon is in Scorpio, and my rising sign is in Virgo? ☮️

Answer: Having a Capricorn sun means you are a natural leader, and that others automatically come to you for advice on how to handle matters in life or work. You are serious and ambitious but have a good sense of humor. You wouldn't ask anyone to do something you wouldn't do yourself.

The moon in Scorpio means you have a lot of emotional strength, and even during the worst problems you can tough it out and make the best of it. You are passionate about relationships, and give it your all. You have to be careful not to go to extremes. You are a loyal person and very caring with those you love. You are the type of friend who can be counted on when life is hard, and all the other friends disappear. You have strong opinions and can be blunt, but are honest and the Virgo rising helps to soften that a little.

The Virgo rising is the way others see you. This is another Earth sign, so you are sensible. I am glad you have the Scorpio moon, it will force you out of your comfort zone. Virgos are hard working and dependable. You care about health issues and take good care of yourself. Don't go on health websites or watch medication commercials or you will think you have every disease! You are also very intelligent and witty, up on all the issues of the day. It's a very nice Trinity.

Question: What does it mean to have a Scorpio moon in 10th house, with a formed conjunction with Jupiter?

Answer: First let's discuss the Moon/Jupiter conjunction. It's a nice one! This aspect gives you sympathy and generosity. You truly want to bring good things to others. Since you are so concerned about the welfare of others, you will reap good karma. You have good and trusting relationships with women, and other people go out of their way to help you. You have a lot of energy and this gives you good health. You are inclined towards work which benefits educational causes (from Jupiter) or religious and spiritual ones. You are emotionally attached to home (the Moon) family and friends, and are attached to your material possessions, since this conjunction is in a fixed sign (Scorpio).

The 10th house where this conjunction appears rules your profession as opposed to a job, which is a 6th house thing. It also rules the way the public sees you, and your reputation, which appears to look good here. So I believe you will have good relationships with fellow workers and will get a lot of help along the way as far as career desires go.

The Moon in Scorpio is willful, persistent, strong, you can read people well. You will work very hard to achieve your goals, and that Moon and Jupiter will be a great help. You like your own way, but can be kind and sympathetic to those you perceive as weaker than you. You may seem intimidating to people, Scorpio does that. But Scorpios are good people and very frugal and sensible. I think whatever career you choose will go very well, and you will put your whole heart into it. Since the Moon is involved in this aspect, the work can be in a field which favors women or benefits them in some way. It can also involve family members or good friends.

Question: What are your thoughts on a Pisces Sun, Capricorn Rising, and Scorpio Moon?

Answer: I think it's a good combination. Just remember it's only your trinity, all your planets are in houses and all your planets makes aspects to each other, so there are many factors we don't know here.

A Pisces Sun person is spiritual, creative, artistic, psychic, and reads others very well. They are easy to get along with and accept others, being very philosophical. They are restless spirits, often changing jobs and moving around. The Capricorn Rising is the way you appear, and that's sensible, reliable, and ambitious. People trust you and often ask for advice. This is an earth sign so is a stabilizing force on Pisces. People look at you and see someone in charge. The Scorpio moon is another water sign, but a fixed sign, another leader. Scorpio moon people are strong willed and independent, and this also helps the dreaminess of being a Pisces. It's another creative sign too. Scorpios are blunt and are deeply emotional, actually, all three parts of this Trinity are. But I think you can express it well. The Scorpio in you means you are tough and can handle what life throws at you. You are sympathetic and will defend those who you care about who need it. You are sensual and I think you want a stable relationship or marriage, and will most likely have one. It may take time to find the right person, but I believe you want emotional security.

Question: Whats your take on a Pisces sun Scorpio moon and rising?

Answer: You are very strong-willed and psychic. The Pisces Sun means you are a dreamer, but probably are artistic and creative. You feel strongly for others and don't judge them. Scorpio Moon means you have intense emotions, and are very loyal to those you love. You tend to be possessive in love, but care deeply about those close to you and will do anything for them. Scorpio rising means you are reserved and some may feel you are hard to approach, though the Pisces Sun makes that a little better. You come off as very sexy and ethereal. You may not want to be bothered by certain people, as you can read them well and understand fast that they can become problems in your life. It's an all water sign trinity, so you are a very emotional person. But all your planets are in a zodiac sign, and there are seven more, so hopefully some are in Earth signs to calm you down. You have goals and Scorpios generally achieve what they want to do. I think that is a good things, as Pisces people can be scattered and let others pull them in directions where they shouldn't go. All this water can mean a tendency to drink or take drugs, so be careful.

Question: I have a Scorpio moon and rising. My Scorpio moon is in the 12th house conjunct with Pluto. My Sun is Cappy. I have always felt like I can read people at a glance, and was told recently by an astrologer I have a clairvoyant she on the spot with her analysis? What is your analysis on these placements?

Answer: I think with the Scorpio rising and Moon you definitely can read people like books. You can be a little overbearing and probably are intimidating to others, because Scorpios are very direct, even if it's not their Sun in the sign. The Moon conjunct Pluto intensifies your emotions a lot. You are very strong willed, and have the ability to influence others. You probably believe in reincarnation or even have experience with departed loved ones, or could if you develop your abilities more. Once you have a bad experience with someone, you can walk away and not look back, a Scorpio trait. It's a good thing, because why trust someone if you gave them a chance and they let you down? You are fearless and able to take risks. You are also capable of making extreme changes in your life, because of the Moon/Pluto conjunction. The Moon in the 12th house means your emotions are affected by subconscious things you may not realize, or be based on past experience. Depending on the way other planets aspect this conjunction, you could suffer from mental health issues or have a period of being in an institution, or work in one. The Capricorn Sun is a good balance here, so I think you probably are healthy and work for a large company, something of that nature. I think the astrologer's analysis is good. But unless you have a whole Birth Chart done, it's piecemeal and incomplete.

Question: I’m a Scorpio moon, and since the moon is entering Scorpio, how will this blue moon affect us?

Answer: Normally when the transiting moon enters your natal sign, it intensifies your emotions in whatever house and aspects your Moon makes to other planets. Scorpio Moons are times when people are independent and may want some time for themselves. It brings out loyalty to family and best friends, and people will try to do things they are normally too afraid to do.

What about this combo: he is gemini sun, scorpio moon, gemini rising, I am virgo sun, gemini moon, libra rising?


Céleste on October 01, 2019:

Is it normal for a scorpio moon man to say I love you too soon?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 24, 2019:

Hi Rachel,

Scorpio Sun and Moon people do take a bad rap. Check out my article "Are Scorpios Evil?" I've been surrounded by Scorpios all my life, and think they are great!

Rachel on September 22, 2019:

Thank you for these read. So nicely put. Matter fact so intelligently put. Some people write about us scorpio moons and they spew so much negativity into it like oh my gosh, stay away from a scorpio moon. But aren’t we the most fragile, most misunderstood, most unfortunate of people around. People don’t get to see the traumas we go through and ask why we are on guards.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 11, 2019:

Thank you for that spot on interpretation of Scorpio. They do overcome the most horrific changes in life more than any other sign. I think this person must have anger management issues or low self esteem. I do discuss the strength of Leos, so they didn't even read the whole article. I know so many Scorpios who have overcome such terrible and heartbreaking circumstances, often when they have done nothing wrong.

Take care.

LunaticEight from 8th House on September 10, 2019:

Lions4Eva, it’s sad to feel the need to build yourself up by tearing others down. All signs of the zodiac have their strengths and weaknesses. They are ALL vitally important to the evolution of humanity. And I think you’ve misunderstood the significance of our moon in Scorpio being in the descent. It does not signify weakness in the signifies the remarkable, sometimes horrific, challenges that we face in our lives. And virtually without exception, we meet and overcome those challenges.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 10, 2019:


Just by launching this tirade of negativity against Scorpios and for the insistence that Leos are the "best", you crave more attention. Go look in the mirror. All of the planets in a person's Natal Chart are in a zodiac Sign, and you must have a few in Leo. I'm sorry if a Scorpio broke up with you or hurt you, but I've studied and taught astrology for over 40 years. A lot more makes a person than a Sun sign. Leos are hot headed and love to pick petty fights.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 10, 2019:

All zodiac signs have free will, and can use their traits in a positive or negative way. I disagree, having been around Scorpios all my life, I believe it's the strongest sign. But I will look because I didn't mean to call Leos "annoying." Leos are very gracious, warm hearted, and generous people.

Lions4Eva on September 10, 2019:

There is so much more to Leo than "popular " or "wants to be noticed." That is the biggest misconception or even lie of modern astrology. No. Leo was categorized as a SOLITARY sign on earlier astrology. We do not nedd attention nearly half as much as modern astrologers exaggerate. We too are incredibly strong, courageous, fierce, and fiery. And astrologers should focus more on those traits and aspects of us rather than the extremely superficial "attention" blah blah blah. A lion doesn't "need" attention. A lion takes what it needs.

And yes Scorpios have big problems with their emotions! They are the fall of the moon which is something modern astrologers tend to either forget or ignore and while I agree that some people tend to needlessly fear certain placements, the astrological system is clear about Scorpio and Capricorn being the weakest placements for the moon which makes modern astrologers almost worship of the sign baffling.

Astrologers need to stop exaggerating the power of Scorpio and start exploring the power of some of the other signs. There's a lot more depth to Leo than what most modern astrologers claim.

Lions4Eva on September 10, 2019:

In one of your questions, you described Leo almost superficially ad as "attention-seeking " and "annoying" but then described Scorpio as "strong and fearless." Well, Leo is the mighty lion of the Zodiac's and it is Leo who has the strongest will, not Scorpio. Leo's motto is "I Will." And Scorpio is the weakest placement of the moon so I don't know why modern astrologers like to exaggerate their supposed power. Leo's are every bit as strong and fearless as any scorpion and its high time modern astrologers start to realize that. We are the apex predator of the Zodiac for a reason and lions can crush scorpions.

Hi Jean,

I would like to get a detailed reading about the situation with a scorpio girl I am living with. Please tell me your fees and how I could contact you.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 26, 2019:

Scorpio Moon,

The transformations will happen. Sometimes it's because you get them started, and sometimes the Universe will push you into them. So don't be sad. Use your intuition, it should be good! Take care.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 26, 2019:

Hi Scorpio Moon,

I am so happy the article helped you. It's a hard Moon sign, because it is so intense emotionally. But that can have it's good points too--most Scorpio Moons I know are very kind and understanding.

Scorpio moon on January 26, 2019:

And thank you also for this article, because , its sometimes so hard to understand what i actually feel, and emotions are overflowing. Article helps me to undestand myself better:)

Scorpio moon on January 26, 2019:

This is so true. The most accurate discription, like wrote someone, who knows me. Thank you for that, because sometimes i need to rewind myself, that its ok, to be a little more privacy loving and get deep sometimes in random things,and also need for any kind of transformation is what i expect, and when it dont happens, it can make me sad, like for "no reason":)

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 04, 2019:

Hi Lunatic Eight,

Thanks for the kind words. I agree, some people accept death a lot worse than others. Last January a dear friend and neighbor of mine, my son's Godfather, passed suddenly. I live on a one lane road in the woods, and we were all so close, it was like a constant block party. Two of his friends he had since he was a kid are still doing badly. One had a breakdown, and one is talking to a therapist. And I guess it doesn't matter how old a person is, some do get bitter. I lost my Dad when I was 27 and Mom at 39, and I have friends who can't cope when parents in their 80s die. At least they had more time with them. Everyone is different. It's been nice chatting with you!

LunaticEight from 8th House on January 04, 2019:

I have been blessed to have SO many Scorpio people in my life and I’ve gotten fairly good at picking them out of a crowd (even through physical traits). Just from the way you write in such a straightforward and logical way, I thought you must have lots of Scorpio in your chart. In fact, you look so much like one of my dear, close cousins that it’s shocking. Same beautiful red hair and smile.

I think in some ways, Moon in Scorpio people can accept the death of their loved ones a slightly easier than Scorpio sun people. I’ve noticed my loved ones feel a kind of quiet resentment against the universe for taking the people they love no matter the circumstances or age. My husband felt cheated when his father passed away at 72.

Even though Scorpio is thought of as the sign of death and transformation, it seems like sun AND moon go through a kind of death of their own when someone they love passes away. It’s one of those few instances where this sign is completely vulnerable and it’s not often that the world gets to see that in them.

Best regards to you, Jean, and Happy 2019!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 03, 2019:

Even though people have different signs on the ascendant when we cast a whole Natal Birth Chart, since you have planets in the 8th house, it's the natural Scorpio house. So that's why you exhibit Scorpio traits.

I have 4 planets in the 8th, and have been present at several deaths of family members, not intentionally. It's led me to see it's peaceful, and I don't fear death either. But I do wonder why the ones I loved didn't get a second chance, they went so fast and unexpectedly. At least they didn't suffer.

LunaticEight from 8th House on January 03, 2019:

My moon is in the 8th house along with Mercury (and Ketu in Vedic astrology) and your description of traits is very accurate, Jean.’s my Scorpio sun hubs who was the mortician many years ago. I could never do that job because I have an extreme aversion to causing, or even seeing damage to the body, human or animal...hence my veganism. When someone else is cut, I bleed, so to speak. But I have been present and witnessed peaceful death and it was a very sacred and holy experience for me. I felt very honored and thankful to be there. And no, I don’t fear my death at all. I think it will be a much easier process than birth into this world and probably thrilling if we can familiarize ourselves with it before it happens.

I did meet the love of my life at work and I do have a good head for business although not necessarily finances.

Emotions are fixed but one of the strongest and strangest qualities of my placements is the black and white nature of my feelings about things. I either love a thing or absolutely detest it. And the strange part is that this applies to weird things like certain words & phrases or material objects, even other’s opinions. It’s like a kind of OCD, actually.

I am a very solitary person so no, I do not have friends from childhood at all. That’s not something that I want or need. My ‘friends’ are my close family members. There are only so many hours in each day and we both prefer to devote our social time solely to family.

Sounds like you have a very solid grasp on Scorpio Moon. Thanks very much for this article.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 02, 2019:

Saturn means you would be responsible handling other people's money for a career, or have karmic lessons to learn about other's money. Pluto is large changes and transformation, so you could be poor and marry a rich guy, or become a person who suddenly raises a lot of cash for a charity.

Michelle on January 02, 2019:

Interesting comment about Scorpio Moon is also 8th House. It’s not too lonely there, having saturn and Pluto for company

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 13, 2018:

Hi Lunatic Eight,

I do have a thought. This combo works partly because with your Scorpio Moon (which rules your emotional makeup) you can easily understand your Scorpio love. When one person in the relaitonship has the Moon the same as the other's Sun sign, it's great for getting along. Best Wishes to you.

LunaticEight from 8th House on December 13, 2018:

Sounds pretty accurate. I’m a Scorpio Moon female married to the love of my life, a (very) Scorpio Sun male, for almost 18 beautiful years. I read recently that sun/moon combos like this in every sign tend to work well. Do you have any thoughts about that?

We are BFF’s in every sense and spend every free second together. Also, not even remotely social. We have our own, individual interests and hobbies and little to no need for other people other than our families, to whom we’re both devoted.

Thanks for a great article.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 12, 2018:

HI Boaz,

I have Scorpio planets too! Glad you enjoyed the article.

Boaz on December 12, 2018:

Hello shekhar,

I'm so glad you read my work and were able to understand a friend a little better. A Scorpio Moon friend is a loyal, good friend. Sometimes we are lucky to have ONE good friend, who is there for the times when life gets hard. My money's on this one!

shekhar on September 30, 2018:

describes a friend of mine well ..thank you

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on August 11, 2018:

The days the sun goes in and out of an astrology sign are not always the 21st to the 21st. So I can't be sure if you are really a sun in 29 degrees of Cancer without knowing the birth year. Unless I cast a whole chart, I can't tell why a combination of planets in signs are causing such turmoil. Each planet is in a sign, and your Mercury is In Leo. You could have larger planets in Leo if you feel you exhibit these traits. But I don't know what houses of the 12 these planets are in or how far the planets are from each other. You should be feeling Virgo influences with two placements.

I have written complete, instructional articles on some of these positions that say a lot more than I can here. For your Scorpio Moon, read this:

For your Venus in Virgo placement, read this:

For your Mercury in Leo way of thinking, here is a good explanation:

Here is another article I wrote regarding ascendants:

This should help you quite a bit. I wrote all of these articles and published them myself. It's thousands of words which will answer your questions more adequately than I have room to do here on a public forum. Best of luck to you.

Sera on August 09, 2018:

Hi Jean!

I was wondering if you could tell me a bit about the combination of my signs... I'm not sure what my driving motive is or if the turmoil I feel is because of my combination. My sun is the last day of Cancer, and I've always felt a bit of a pull towards Leo, and then the rest are:

Moon: Scorpio

Ascending: Virgo

Venus: Virgo

Mars: Scorpio

Mercury: Leo

Hi Queen Elizabeth,

I just tried the link and it is working. Why don't you try again? Or if you don't want to have your question publically in print there, contact me from from my profile page. Take care.

TheQueenElizabeth on July 13, 2018:

Hi Jean,

I tried emailing you at but the address did not work. I wanted to follow up to your last response. Please help.

Thank you!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 06, 2018:

Dear Erin,

I can't tell what house any planet is in without casting a whole chart. Since you have Sag rising the Scorpio Moon could be in the 12th house, but it depends on where you were born and the time of birth. Please don't reply with that unless you want me to cast and interpret a whole chart. This is a group site and I see all kinds of questions on one page, so it's even hard for me to follow up with everyone, I have written over 100 astrology articles.

This Scorpio moon is very passionate and your own emotions may be hard for you to understand. You care deeply about a small amount of people in your life and always will. It's great for focus if you are trying to learn something new, and if so, you will study the topic to death.

The Pisces Sun is spiritual, bored easily, and you relate to everyone regardless of their story. You are very sensitive and understanding. You need time to be alone and also do with the Scorpio Moon, you can't be "on" all the time.

The Sag rising is more upbeat, a fire sign. You are friendly when you feel like being so, and also don't judge others. You probably like sports and love animals and nature. Sag and Pisces are what we call mutable signs, so you lose interest fast and tend to be changeable. I hope that helps you.

Erin on July 06, 2018:

How do I find out what house my scorpio moon is in? Im scorpio moon. Pisces Sun and sag rising

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 05, 2018:

Hello Lai,

The Moon rules our emotions, so you have intense ones. You are a loyal friend and care deeply about whatever is most important to you.

The third house of astrology rules short journeys, relatives, siblings, and communication. So depending on what other planets you have there and the aspects they make to other planets, the issues above are prominent in your life.

You may have jealously issues with brothers and sisters. Since the Moon is a Scorpio one, the "journeys" won't be far--mostly in your own neighborhood or in the area where your job and friends live, as Scorpio is a fixed sign.

You are expressive with this Moon sign and probably are a good communicator. You would be a good speaker or writer. I can also see you as an advocate for the people in your neighborhood, or involved in the local City Counsel.

I wrote an article about house meanings, and will paste it here. I am unsure if it will come up as a link though, but type it into your browser for more house info: Take care, Jean

What does Scorpio moon in 3rd house mean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 03, 2018:

Dear Raven,

Thanks for your kind praise.

It sure does. I've never in all my years seen such a concentration of planets in two water signs. When a person has 3 or more planets in a sign, we call it a stellium. It intensifies the energies of the planets involved, so you are emotional in the extreme!

I have a son with a Scorpio Moon, Sun and Mercury. Watching him grow up, I saw the difficulty of having such strong emotions. When in Scorpio, you have to express these feelings, and to others it can seem like too much. It was painful for him as well. It gets easier as you are older, and I recommend channeling some of that energy into artistic pursuits, because I know you are also a multi-talented and creative person. Do you paint, write, play an instrument, or have another gift? I bet that's part of the equation with you.The Moon rules your emotions, so in Scorpio you are passionate about what interests you at the moment, but it's a sign which sees everything in black and white, so when something or someone doesn't matter anymore, you leave and never look back. The Scorpio Ascendant is the facade you show to the world.I have mine there too, and find other women are intimidated by me. You seem strong, capable, express yourself well, and sometimes are painfully truthful.You speak your truth gently, but with authority. But your intensity can do you proud when you apply yourself to what is important.

The Cancer Sun means you are nurturing, fun, kind, get bored easily, and like to travel and try new things. You also want a family or are close to friends you consider family. You are practical and reliable, a trusted friend, an interesting person. The Mercury in Cancer rules the way you think. You can't separate your thoughts from your feelings, so try harder to be objective. Sometimes you can get hurt when the heart rules the mind.

Venus in Cancer makes you a hopeless romantic, but you are a bit shy and may wait for others to make the first move. If you want a partner, you are likely to find one within your circle of friend or family.

The Mars in Cancer is about your physical life. I think you have to watch your health. I don't think you are athletic, unless its swimming or gardening, you possibly like to take long walks in nature and adore the beach, it's so inspirational.

So all these placements are in water signs and water rules emotions. The only planets left are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, and I pray they are in fire, air or preferable earth signs, as you need to ground yourself and there has to be some other element in your planetary makeup.

I would love to see you use all these feelings and emotions to create and nurture. I understand how you would be in turmoil with all these water positions. This link is an article I wrote on Mercury in Cancer and may assist you in your quest to understand yourself. Also, This link will lead to an article I wrote which is a more lengthy description of Venus in Cancer. I hope I have been able to help. If you want to have a birth chart done so we can see what else is in it, or would like a tarot reading, I am at Take care. Jean

Raven on July 03, 2018:

This article is beautifully written and describes my scorpio moon emotions accurately. The passion can be very painful in itself.. I feel so deeply and my emotions seem to be in constant turmoil. I have Cancer sun/ Scorpio moon/ Scorpio ascending, mars in Cancer, venus in Cancer, and mercury in Cancer. Does this have anything to do with the emotional intensity and pain that I feel on a regular basis?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 02, 2018:

Hello Mars in Scorpio,

Happy to to it. If you have other questions regarding relationships, I can do a tarot reading. Although people think astrology is fortune telling, I use it more as a personality profile, as is the correct interpretation. But I also studied the Tarot for a long time and do readings. They can tell what to expect in the future for the next year and are normally accurate. I can be found thru this site or at Take care.

Mars in Scorpio on July 02, 2018:

Thank you so much Jean for taking the time to explain this and help me decipher this.

It is so much appreciated!!!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 01, 2018:

Sun in Aries means he's outgoing, life of the party, bored easily and loves the thrill of the chase kind of guy. The Moon in Scorpio is more possessive. His emotions are so deep he must be mature or he may not even understand them at times. But he is passionate about whatever he does and is an expert at anything which interests him. Mars in Pisces softens this a little, this is a dreamer's actions, not a doer, though with the Aries Sun he may begin things and not finish, or if he really cares, the Scorpio Moon can aid him in patience and give him the drive to finish what he starts. Venus in Aries does mean he gets bored in a relationship, so keep it lively. Again, The Scorpio and Pisces calm down the Aries Sun and Venus. Aries Venus is ardent and he shows his affection.

Your Virgo Sun means you are practical and reliable. You are sexy in an earthy kind of way. He is emotionally attracted to you, and Pisces brings out his romantic side. Your Taurus Moon gives you stable emotions and you don't play games where love is concerned. You are steady and true. Mars in Scorpio means you are very intense about whatever you do or how you spend your energies. You are thorough and don't leave anything half done. The Venus in Leo means you are the Queen and expect attention. He will give it to you with Venus in Aries. The Leo Venus is good with his Aries planets. My biggest concern is that he gets bored so fast, it may be hard to hold onto him. But he does have the Scorpio and Pisces which interacts with your Virgo and Taurus well. Try not to nag him or be too critical. I have concerns he may hurt you and not want a relationship as settled as you want, although he has some good planetary positions to make it work with you. Since you both have Scorpio in you, you are both a little secretive with each other. His Aries planets mean he likes to do, not talk about it. So if he can show he cares, don't ask him to discuss it so much. It depends on how much you need from him. It can work, but may not satisfy you. I hope that helps. I have articles on Mercury and Venus positions which are more helpful on and Best Wishes. Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 29, 2018:

Thanks Luffy,

Good luck and I hope it works out--summer romances are nice! Jean

Scorpio Mars Female on June 29, 2018:

Hello Jean,

This man I adore is extremely hard to figure out. Sun in Aries, Moon in Scorpio, Mars in Pisces and Venus in Aries.

Could you please help me as I’m trying to find a way to communicate where he could open up a bit more? I can’t find this combination anywhere on the internet.

If it helps, my placement is Virgo Sun, Taurus Moon, Mars Scorpio and Venus Leo.

Thank you, your time is appreciated!

LuffyC on June 28, 2018:

That's absolutely true Jean! Thank you again!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 28, 2018:

Hi Luffy,

There will be excitement with the Libra Moon, as you have Aries and Capricorn in you. But people sometimes get worried about these aspects. You need a challenge or the relationship would bore you to death. I think this is good.

The Scorpio goes well with the Pisces Sun, it's a nice, understanding aspect of your being together. Go for it!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 27, 2018:


I would love to help you here, but I can't in this limited space. I really would need to cast a whole astrology chart to figure it all out. I can be reached at for further details.

TheQueenElizabeth on June 27, 2018:

Hi Jean,

Thank you for answering my questions about my Pisces/Libra/Scorpio Ascendant/Sun/Moon signs. It was very helpful.

I have a couple more questions about my current relationships. The first is a Virgo/Aires/Scorpio Ascendant/Sun/Moon man that I have recently rekindled with. We dated originally about 5 years ago but he moved out of state back then and we lost touch. We also both have Venus in Venusian ruled signs, Taurus (him) and Venus in Libra (me), along with both having our Mars in Leo and both our Saturn in Virgo. Since he and I have polar opposite Ascendant/Sun signs and the same Moon sign, I am interested to know what you think of this match. He is a polygamist and honest about it all, as am I. This is why I also keep things open and honest on my end to him an others I date. If I'm dating a polygamist, why would I be soley with just him instead of openly dating as well? He also still lives out of state and not the next state over. This is a big reason why we are open and honest about dating others. I would like to have more traditional situation but it's not possible and may not ever be with this person.

I have also reconnected with a friend I have known for quite a few years but have recently come to know better than I ever have before. We did have sex once (recently and for the first time), but he is now avoiding that all together bc we have been working together on some projects and making money together. He has recently come out of two bad back to back relationships with two Geminis, in the last 2 years. The first relationship activated this Heart Chakra, finally! This person is a Libra/Capricorn/Gemini, Ascendant/Sun/Moon. I really dig this person and feel it could be more as we both want love and commitment and we have a lot of things in common. Not sure of the Gemini Moon with my Scorpio Moon though. What are your thoughts?

My birthday 9/24/79, 6:18 PM

Aires birthday 4/2/80, 4:47 PM

Capricorn birthday 12/27/74, 1:52 AM

Thank you!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 26, 2018:

Hello Luffy C,

This is a nice combination of all the elements--earth, fire, water and air.

The Aries Sun in the 3rd house means you have original ideas and are a great communicator, usually the one to reach out to others, as Aries likes to be first. You are warm and outgoing.

The Moon in Scorpio represents your emotions, extremely intense and passionate. Since it's in the 10th house, much of that emotional energy will be applied to career issues or anything you do which put you in the public eye. You are a go getter who has goals and will achieve them.

Venus in Gemini is your love and social nature, lighthearted and fun in the 5th house, which rules romance and sports, gambling, and entertainment. Have you ever been in love with two people at the same time? Or you may have two great loves in your life.

Mars in Capricorn shows a hard working person with a strong will to achieve. The 12th house rules secrets and large institutions. So there may be something about yourself you don't reveal or you could even be living a sort of double life, interpreting this in the light of also having Venus in Gemini. Work in a hospital, school or other large institution would appeal to you.

The Aquarius Ascendant is the way others see you, so you come off as inventive, your own person, a nonconformist who makes your own rules. You are likely tall and very intelligent, both Aquarius and Venus are air signs and rule thinking and communications.

I think you are a well rounded person. I am thrilled you found my Scorpio Moon description accurate. The bulk of my readers still seem to think all people with Scorpio Moons or Suns are sex addicts or evil people, even though none of that is true. I have been surrounded by many Scorpios in my life, Sun and Moon, and find them interesting and deep thinkers. Best Regards, Jean

LuffyC on June 24, 2018:

Hi Jean, I just want to say that your description of the Scorpio Moon sign is one of the most accurate I've read compared to others I've seen online. What do you think of an Aries Sun and Scorpio Moon? Here's a glimpse of my chart:

Sun - Aries (3rd House)

Moon - Scorpio (10th)

Venus - Gemini (5th)

Mars - Capricorn (12th)

Ascendant - Aquarius

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 25, 2018:

It's your Capricorn ascendant that people see and think you are serious, the vibe they get from you is business like, I am busy, my time is limited. Also, even though Capricorn is an emotional sign, you don't show it on the surface.

Your Pisces Sun is in the 2nd house, that's the house that rules security, plus money issues. Pisces people are great at getting along with others, but are not leaders, they are followers, and although this trinity is nice, I think it's the Sun which gives you this fear. You probably are very creative and artistic, and understanding about all people.

The Scorpio Moon is also a serious vibration, and in the 10th house, you are ambitious. Scorpio Moon gives you strength, and the discipline to see things through. All of these signs are compatible with Scorpio or Cancer men, and Earth sign men would be nice for you too.

The Pisces Sun has a vulnerable quality to it, and so does the Scorpio Moon, although Scorpio as a sign gets misunderstood. So you do get hurt easily. But I think if you go more slowly in relationships, until you feel more secure, you will succeed. Security is the key word I want you to concentrate on! Take care.

Kate on May 23, 2018:

HI, I am Pisces sun ( 2nd house), Scorpio Moon ( 10th house) and Capricorn ascendant. I am very sensitive to others feelings, can sense other feeling easily. PPL see me as very strong, opinionted mysterious and serious woman. Myself, I feel very vulnerable and easy to hurt. I always have very strong connection with scorpios men, as well as cancer men. at the same have a great fear to create healthy relationships?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 15, 2018:


It's hard for me to tell without having a whole astrology chart. It would be easy to say because you have a Scorpio Sun, but normally Sun signs that are the same are not attracted to each other. Or it feels like dating your sister or brother.

The Pisces Moon is a water sign, dreamy, artistic, psychic, and Scorpio is a water sign too. It's a fixed sign, so you may feel more grounded with a Scorpio man than with others. The Sag ascendant means you are independent minded and intelligent, something you would have in common with other Scorpios. Pisces and Sag are what we call mutable signs, so you really aren't inclined to want to stay in a relationship for long without a change. Maybe they bore you after a while? Or you enjoy the thrill of the chase more and that's the more exciting part of it for you?

I get more mail about Scorpio than any other sign. I hope you don't just fall for that business about them being more sexy than anyone else. Truly, I am deluged with either Scorpios telling me how sex addicted they are, or parents afraid of their own Scorpio children. I am currently writing an article on those topics, because although I have written many on planets in Scorpio, people always come away only remembering sexy or intimidating or uncontrollable (when it's their child).

Maybe try a Virgo or Pisces, those are mutable signs that are restless like you. Take care.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 14, 2018:

Yes, this is a heavy concentration of Scorpio. The Sun, Pluto, Mars and Mercury in the 8th house is the natural Scorpio house, even though if you had an astrology chart done, you would have an ascendant and another sign may be the ruler of the house. It's still a strong influence.

The North Node is always directly opposite the South one, so that's in Taurus. It's telling you that you loved to live a rather luxurious and expensive live or lives in other incarnations, and now you need to go forward into a Scorpio mode, and be frugal, serious, and work harder.

It's hard to say more without a whole chart, but you are correct about having a Scorpio themed chart. Most people just want to be told how sexy that makes them, but I've written extensively about each astrology sign, and although the 8th house rules sex and death, it's mostly the house of regeneration. Expect to make a lot of change in your life. Most likely positive ones that are well thought out. Good job, by the way!

ndnchick26 on May 14, 2018:

After reading your post I had to spend time analyzing my own chart. It hit me why I always feel more like a Scorpio and relate to Scorpio traits more than Librian. My Sun, Pluto, Mars, and Mercury are all in the 8th house. My chart ruler, Uranus, Moon, Venus and North Node all in Scorpio, in the 9th house. Wouldn't this equate to having a Scorpio themed chart?

Thank you, in advance for your input.

Holycow on May 14, 2018:

I am a Scorpio sun, Pisces moon with a Sagittarius ascendant. Why do I keep falling for Scorpio men one after another

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 12, 2018:

Hello Rivers,

It seems I've been getting mail about several people with Pisces, Scorpio and Libra trinities lately. But I don't think you were one of them.

OK, first of all, Scorpio Moon Sign people DO NOT HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THEIR EMOTIONS. I have to shout this, because I've taught this is untrue for many years in my Astrology practice, and it's not personal. But others will read this. In the last week I've had two mothers afraid of their own Scorpio Moon kids, and one who thinks Scorpio Moon kids hate their parents. That's not getting into the people who want me tell them they are triple sexy because their whole trinity is in Scorpio. But I digress.

Scorpio Moon people have strong or intense emotions. So do Cancer Moon and Pisces moon people. Scorpios do have it harder, it's a fixed sign and you are stubborn, so more likely to insist what you feel is right and what others feel is wrong. That intensity can be great in a relationship, and you are a loyal and kind friend who will do anything for those you love. So there is an up side to that moon. It also helps you endure during tough times.

Since you have a Pisces Sun with the the Scorpio Moon, you are a spiritual person and I think you need time to yourself, possibly getting overwhelmed in big rooms of people, even family. You are very creative and artistic, so I hope you are getting some of that out in some way, that may help you feel more connected. Join a group to learn about something creative and you could meet compatible people. I go to metaphysical bookstores and often take courses there.

The Libra Ascendant is the way others see you, and it's kind, gentle and outgoing. Libras like to do things in partnerships, even in work situations.

I think you just aren't meeting the right people. It's not a bad planet trinity. Maybe try to do something new, and sometimes it changes your direction. Are you sick of your job? Maybe it's time for a change. Change your routine in one small way and see if it makes a difference.

Let me know how it goes. Take care, Jean P.S. There's nothing in this article to make people think Scorpio Moon people are possessed or sex addicts or want to kill their parents. I've had many friends read it for me. Try not to blame things on that.

Rivers on May 12, 2018:

Hello, I have a Pisces sun, Scorpio moon and Libra ascendant. For most of my life I have been dealing with a sense of disconnection from other people. Even though I get along fine with them, there's the feeling that I can't quite connect with them, and they to me. So even when I'm having a good time with friends and family, I'm not completely happy, since it feels like we're only relating to each in a superficial way.

I wonder if my star signs are involved with this, since scorpio moon people have more problems with their


Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 11, 2018:

Hello Dajag,

I think you are a strong willed person with a strong sense of who you are. The Ascendant is the way others see you--especially people who don't know you. So you come off as kind and sensitive, and make others feel comfortable.

The descendant only matters a lot if you have many planets in your 7th house, the marriage and war house (I get the reason why they are paired after many years)! Capricorn is a sensible, reliable and business oriented sign, so you are attracted to people like that in love and business.

The Scorpio Moon rules your emotions, so yours are very intense. When you were young you probably had trouble sorting them out yourself. You care deeply and this also gives you focus when something or someone is important to you. You are loyal and a good friend. Scorpio is a fixed sign so you are stubborn about anyone telling you how to feel.

Scorpio rules sex, but people get too bogged down on that. If someone really hurts you, you are jealous, and will fight back, probably to hurt them. But on the other hand, you have much self control too. You have sex appeal and won't be swayed easily. I think you would be loyal in a relationship.

The Aries Sun with the Scorpio Moon make you determined to achieve your goals. Also, Cancer is a leadership sign, so you are a force to be reckoned with at times. You are an overachiever who needs to relax more. I have articles on Exemplore about Sun signs and Moon signs. I also have ones about Venus signs on, and Mercury ones on and if you are interested. The tables are there so you can look up where your planets are. Best Regards.

Dajag on May 11, 2018:

Hello, I have a Cancer ascendant/Capricorn descendant, Aries sun, and Scorpio moon. I want to know what it really means. I know quite a bit about Aries sun but not sure about the others. Thank you!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 09, 2018:


I'm so sorry you lost your job. But sometimes when something ends, something better comes up.

The Pisces Rising and Scorpio Moon do make you emotional, but in different ways. Libra is ruled by Venus, so you are a gentle person who has trouble making decisions.

The Scorpio Moon is both your strength and your weakness. You probably have poor aspects to the Moon if you have issues with sex. Pisces rising also means you are a follower, so when you meet someone new, you just let them set the pace, instead of using that strong Scorpio will. The Libra Sun means you are agreeable and kind, charming and fun, altogether a nice person who is fun to have around.

You have to make a decision to change, you have Free Will in life and astrology, and without a chart or knowing more about where the other planets are, the Scorpio Moon is your strongest point here. Make a decision to not get sexually involved with anyone too fast, or not to be sleeping with more than one person at one time. I have neighbor with a similar astrological makeup, and she lets sex rule her life, often with bad results.

You can channel that energy into something else. Scorpio is the sign of transitions and changes, just try to change what's hurting you the most.

Your intense emotions make decision making harder, and Libras like to be in relationships, they hate not having a partner. But it may be best to try it for a bit. It is hard to be objective about ourselves. Do you have a friend you can trust? Someone who can tell you the truth and you won't get mad at?

Plus just losing the job is upsetting you now, so you aren't at your emotional best. Could you afford to get away by yourself for a few days to think things through? Or if you liked the job, is there still a way it's possible to make a lateral move or work out something else?

Just don't jump into another doomed relationship or hook up because you are upset. Try to plan activities to stay busy. I hope things improve for you. Take care.

TheQueenElizabeth on May 09, 2018:


I am so similar to the last commentor. I am a Pisces Rising, Libra Sun and Scorpio Moon. I am so sensitive and I do have so many feelings that I don't even know how to deal with them. I have an issue with sex, almost an addiction. It seems to get me into trouble sometimes. I really need to harness myself, my emotions and my mind to conquer life. I go through many changes and transitions. I need help figuring myself out! Sometimes I don't even know the right thing to do for ME. I just lost my job today and I'm feeling a little lost at the moment. Any advice on being able to harness my power in the right way to benefit me positively?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 29, 2018:

OK. The Scorpio sun means you are strong, independent and willful. You aim high and work hard to achieve your goals. The Libra Moon rules your emotions. and you like to be in a relationship or partnership, in love and at home. Libra is the sign of the balance, so you don't like to argue and will be quiet before you will start an argument, although the Scorpio Sun makes you more able to stand up for yourself. Libras like nice things and you like to be in calm surroundings. Pisces is the way people see you. Pisces are kind and understand that everyone has problems, and you are the one who helps your friends when they are going through hard times. You can be artistic and a little psychic with the Scorpio and Pisces in you. It's a nice combination. Take care.

Antonio Drake on April 29, 2018:

Hi, could you please tell me a bit about myself: Scorpio Sun, Libra Moon, rising Pisces? I'm a bit new to astrology, sorry.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 27, 2018:

College does sound hellish in these times. You have a lot of drive and ability to lead, and I think you are ambitious. The Leo Sun means you want to be noticed. Do what you do best, and you will be the best at it, so you can lead a team, get good grades, and enjoy this time.

Leos are popular and you can make friends now that can lead to a good job or profession later on. The Scorpio Moon gives you good focus, so you can learn a lot and will work hard. Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs, so you are stubborn. Libra Rising is how others see you, and Libra is a sign that likes to do things in partnerships. This is also another sign you have a good personality and are generally well liked by others.

It's tough to have to choose a major at your age, and those who do normally change it. In a year or so you will need to choose some sort of pathway to a career with your classes.

I see you being in charge, but with a partner you trust. You have a lot of artistic ability, I would think in that direction. Do you have an ability to write, or paint, something like that?

And the Scorpio Moon gives you the determination to go after what you want.

Meditation is the doorway to strengthen your psychic abilities. There are all different kinds.The easiest is to think of a mantra, nonsense syllables that don't remind you of a word, and then keep silently repeating this for about 20 minutes a day. Stay with it, and you may see pictures, or colors, see what happens. If you work up to doing it twice a day, that's even better. It sounds lame but that's really how you need to start.

There's a phone app called Buddhify, it has guided meditations. It used to be free, but I think its still only around under $5.00. That can give you an idea about meditation, though I think meditation should be quiet, and the guided ones don't work as well for me. But you can decide.

It forces you to clear your mind and sharpen your focus, and that's important. Try it and you may see more things, or at least you will relax and your intuition should be sharper.

My next article is actually going to be about developing intuition and clairvoyance, but I may not get to it for a week or two. Check back and let me know how it's going. Take care.

Amy Friend on April 27, 2018:

Hey I’m an 18 yr old leo sun, scorpio moon, libra rising and I’m going trough a lot right now. How do I turn all his energy into a positive one? Also how do I strengthen my psychic abilities? Being around college students all the time with so much trauma and pain and lies takes a toll

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on April 08, 2018:

I think you mean detach yourself? So, you are psychic and getting too much clutter in your mind and life from other people's thoughts and problems? I know the feeling.

Sometimes you just have to stop listening or analyzing others for a few days or longer. It can be hard to say "no", but I also get emotionally exhausted from other people's problems doing the work I do. If one person is draining you, try to avoid that person, at least for a bit. If too many people want too much from you, you have to find a way to tell them. I understand, and sometimes you need to pay attention to your own problems and your own life and those around you. Don't feel guilty. Unplug. Take care, Jean

Emotionally exhausted on April 08, 2018:

Hi, how do I learn to de attach my self? Knowing or analyzing someone’s emotions is exhausting!!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 25, 2018:

Hello Corey,

The Aquarius Sun means you are a nonconformist, and the Scorpio Moon carries some intense emotions. Both are fixed or stubborn signs. The aspect they make is called a square. Some people are afraid of challenging aspects, but without them we would all be pretty boring! That Moon makes you pretty independent, so actually works better with Aquarius than some would think. I am glad you enjoyed my work. Take care.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 25, 2018:

Thanks for compliment Eric. Scorpio moon emotions are so intense, I bet you had trouble understanding them yourself until you got a bit older. I've been surrounded by Scorpio Sun and Moon people all my life, and am Cancer with a Scorpio Ascendant, so come off as more intense than I am.

I see so much water here, I would go with your second suggestion. I think you need some Earth influences in a partner to balance yourself. Water people are so romantic, but Earth ones are too. They show it more in private, we Water ones wear our hearts on our sleeves.

I think you may find satisfaction in any kind of creative or spiritual work. I believe you are very talented and artistic. The Pisces Moon also makes you very philanthropic, you want to help everyone. So volunteer for something which you find interesting (a great way to meet like minded people as well).

Also, you may be very psychic, and meditation is the first step to opening those doors. The best astrology book I ever had (and still use) is The Astrologer's Handbook, by Francis Sakoian and Louis Acker. It was the basis of the info used to make computer horoscopes. But it has all you need to know. It begins with the meanings of Sun Signs. Then it talks about each house. Then the meanings of each planet in sign and house. Later, it gets into planets distances, the aspects. It's an old book, but check and you can probably get it cheap used on Amazon. I had to put away my hard cover one and get the paperback, I still refer to it.

Best wishes to you in your studies. I believe I have an article on the houses on, let me see if I can find the URL: That should get you started in the direction you want to go. Best Wishes. Jean

Corey on March 24, 2018:

As a 24yr old Aquarius sun Scorpio moon male I'm just now coming to terms with a lot of what you've wrote here. Especially the part about needing healing time because I feel so much and so hard. Spot on thank you for writing this!

Eric Beggs on March 24, 2018:

Hi Jean,

Thanks so much for this article. I am doing my Natal chart for the second time in my life (first time at 20, now again at 40). I wanted to say thank you because you described very well the emotional intensity of someone with this combination. A small glimpse of my chart sees Pisces Sun, Scorpio Moon, Pisces Mercury, Pisces Venus, and Cancer Mars Rx (getting to learn the houses next), and am sarcastically saying to myself “And you wonder why few people seem to understand the depths of your emotions”.

A huge part of the lessons in my chart are to learn independence and create my own definition of success (Saturn in Leo Rx), North Node in Libra, 9th house, and regardless of what society deems as such. With the powerful Scorpio Moon and Venus in Pisces , I really want my soul mate to be by my side through the journey. Am I wrong to desire that, given the lessons of my chart as I know them today? Would I be better served to find an emotional foundation of sorts (if that’s even possible)?

I feel I should be looking for someone with a water sign Sun, and a Scorpio Moon to be able to have a partner who really understands the emotional vastness; is this appropriate, or would a more grounded Earth be a better fit?

I’m not sure many people out there can understand all of the intangible forces I feel every day.

Any reply would help; and thanks for do By what you do. I have now found someone I can trust in these matters.

Scorpio is not one of the signs that run from the 21st of one month to the 21st of the next, that's a general rule of thumb. To know for sure if a person was born in Scorpio Sun on the 23rd of the month, I would need the year of birth to look it up for you. Thanks.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 02, 2018:

Hi Olivia,

I think water and earth combos are generally good. Since he has a Scorpio Sun, and you have the Moon there, you will understand his emotions, and Scorpio is a very emotional and passionate sign. Plus your Virgo Sun will keep him grounded. I can't tell a lot based on that, but so far it looks really good. Go for it!

Olivia on February 25, 2018:

Hello Jean,

I am a Virgo Sun/ Scorpio Moon and I am interested in a Scorpio Sun man. I would love to know pros/cons of that relationship paring and, what I could possibly expect from both him and I if we were to develop a serious relationship.


Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 21, 2018:

Hello Neil,

OK the Moon does not represent the Mind, it represents the emotions. Mercury represents the mind. It's a deliberate and opinionated one in Scorpio, but not debilitated at all. It is a mind that is sharply focused and has a lot of attention to detail.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of transformation. So if you keep maturing and evolving and learning, and learn spiritual lessons, you can become the Phoenix. It's a blessing for sure!

Neil on February 19, 2018:

Moon represents mind and its debilitated in Scorpio. Despite having debilitated moon (mind), what gives them strength of having intense focus, intuition as well as to transcend their mind to higher self as represented by Phoenix?

What is exactly is debilitated or is it a blessing in disguise to transcend beyond mind?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 09, 2018:

For everyone who thinks astrology is about what astrology sign your planets are in, I can't possibly keep answering questions where you copy and paste all of them and expect pro answers. Please read this article on my blog.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 04, 2018:

Well, it's not going to be through the relationship with her, since you say it's one sided. Scorpio Moon people are jealous, but also are capable of loyal and spiritual love, and being faithful. A Sag moon likes a lot of freedom, so she may not be ready to settle down.

Scorpios are deeply emotional. You seem like a nice person, I don't see why you are wasting time on somebody who makes you feel like this. It isn't likely to change. Find someone who brings positive energy into your life. She's still looking around and you want to be serious. That's not going to change. I hope you move on and find someone more suited to you. Good luck.

Neil on January 29, 2018:

Hello Jean

Although it is one sided love with her, we do share a strong bond. However she(sagittarius moon) attracts many guys which makes me (Scorpio moon) extremely insecure and jealous because of which we usually fight like a couple although we aren't in a relationship. I find it hard to let go of her. Although I know her intentions are not wrong, my own jealousy and insecurity makes me feel betrayed because of which I act paranoid. I feel betrayed and act like a small kid. I wonder how and when will this Scorpio me become a Phoenix and be filled with love and learn to let go. The pain gets unbearable at times. She makes me the side of me which I thought never existed. Deep down she makes me realize I'm very lonely and have to convert this into alone-ness. I believe I have the ability to be the Phoenix version of Scorpio, but I don't know how.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 28, 2018:

Hi Trudy,

Thanks for your kind response. My son and Mom had/have Scorpio Moons, so I know a lot about them. Their emotions run so deep, they can't even explain them sometimes. They need some space to figure themselves out, they are complex. Usually very creative too. Thanks again for the encouragement!

Trudy2435 on January 28, 2018:

This was a brilliant article! Perfect insight into the emotions of a Scorpio moon person. I loved the truth behind your examples and conclusions about this particular placement.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 18, 2018:

Sorry Aleks. This is too much info for me as I am just answering a few, brief questions here. It takes at least 10-12 hours to put this info in the form of a chart, and about 20 pages to interpret it. You can see my fees and other facts about what I need at, if you are still interested. I can't possibly take the time for people who go to a site and paste all this on a small comment section. And expect all that work for free. It's rude.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 16, 2018:

Hello Emilio,

As a water sign Cancer with a Scorpio Ascendant myself, Scorpios are drawn to me, I've been surrounded by them all my life.

Your 11th house planets in Gemini make you ruled by your head, but Gemini is also a light hearted person, even though intelligent, a good communicator. That house rules friends, hopes and wishes, so you dream a lot and have a lot of acquaintances, but the Scorpio Moon has you knowing them longer before you let them see all of you. Your Gemini Sun means you are smart, chatty, interested in a lot of subjects, and are generally easy to get along with. Mars in Gemini means you are an intellectual, Mars rules actions, and lot of those take place in your mind--as a writer, artist, blogger, things of that nature. Mercury in Gemini people can't turn off their minds, I have mine there too. You are always thinking and planning a list of things, and probably accomplish them with your Scorpio planets.

We know Scorpio Moon, you are a lot more emotional than you seem, also more secretive, although with the Gemini Sun, your life seems like an open book. Saturn in Scorpio is the Karmic planet, so will cause obstacles in whatever house it is in, 4th is family, usually the Mother, also can be about real estate if you do that for a career. You have lessons to learn there. Pluto is the planet of transformation, and is at home in Scorpio. You probably reinvented yourself a few times in your life, that's good, we all should evolve.

Again, the Leo Rising is dramatic and you seem very friendly to people who just meet you. So you are a kind of sociable person with a lot of interests. You are more secretive than others suspect, and keep your emotions in. Especially when it's about family, but that could mean you just want to protect your privacy and theirs. It's good to be a little discriminate before you pour your heart out to just anyone.

It's a nice combo, smart, intelligent, intense emotionally. Leos like to show off and like attention. Scorpio is private. But it depends on what areas of life, and you know the houses. Most superficial people see your Leo side first, the ones that know you better realize there are some areas you are more likely to be more reticent. I hope that helps.

Best Regards,


Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 16, 2018:

Hello again Neil,

OK. Well Sun in Sag and Sun in Capricorn works, signs next to each other can normally have a lot in common. Again, your Moon in Scorpio and her Moon in Sag are next to each other too. The Cancer and Scorpio Ascendants are both water signs, so that's compatible. You both appear emotional.

You say you enjoy her playfulness, but with a Venus in Aquarius and Mars in Gemini, you are intelligent and she is too, so that should appeal to her Sag moon and Sun. So I can't say you are incapable of being fun, but sometimes one of the people in the couple is the more serious one, and it's a balance.

It's hard for me to solve this type of issue, I don't have charts, and can't do them for free. Even with Natal birth charts, I don't predict a couple will be together forever, it's a promise nobody can make.

How long has it been since you met? How did it come about that she told you she considers you "just a friend?" I know how that hurts when you have romantic feelings for another, we've all been there. It feels like the Kiss of Death.

All I can think of is maybe a tarot reading. It's more of an in the moment, what's happening, and we could ask if there was love potential between you both. It's specific to your question. The planets look OK, it's not a really bad combination for a couple, I've seen much worse.

Think about it and check out the tarot readings at Or bide your time, if she isn't seeing anyone, maybe you will grow on her. It does happen. Take care, Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 07, 2018:

I'm really sorry, I think you misunderstood or perhaps I didn't make myself clear. I just wanted more info because I think I didn't know his Moon sign or ascendant. I can't possibly cast a chart here for free. It takes me time to draw it up, and at least 10-12 hrs. to interpret it. I charge $100.00 and am beginning to wonder if that's fair to me, as it's so time consuming. I am already busy and have a waiting list, everyone wants a chart at New Year's time. You can find more at jeanbakula.wordpress. I am sorry if I expressed what I would do incorrectly. I simply don't have the time. Thanks, Jean

Emilio on January 05, 2018:

In the past two years, I have founds bits of information about Moon Scorpio. You have a good grasp of the nature and characteristic of Scorpio moon.

Neil on January 05, 2018:

Hi Jean

Mars retrograde in Gemini.

You are right about my serious nature, but I would like to be more like her who takes everything so lightly and enjoys and lives in the moment which I feel incapable of.

It's really only people who have Capricorn Moons who have issues getting along with their Mothers, and even then they are devoted to them and are usually close.. My Scorpio sun son and me being Cancer with a Scorpio Ascendant, we are very close. When his Dad died he came back to live with me, he's very devoted. There is really no "moon sign people" everyone has it in a different place. Sun in Libra is usually a sunny and optimistic person. Libras don't like to argue, in fact, they will go out of their way not to argue. The Scorpio Moon makes her more stubborn, but I bet she makes great arguments when she wants something! She is very intense and won't understand her own emotions sometimes, give her time. I don't know how old she is. With Aquarius rising, she comes off as aloof and likes to be different. The planets in the 8th house mean sometime she will be interested in other people's money, as an accountant, insurance agent, mortician or life insurance agent. The Mercury in Scorpio is how she thinks, so she is slow to change her mind (like never). Aquarius is stubborn too. But Aquarius and Libra are air signs and she is intelligent, so give her some space. I think she will be fine. My son has Sun, Moon and Mercury in Scorpio and they are surprisingly gentle and tolerant. I used to think he would be a lawyer, his arguments were so good (he's an elementary school teacher). Scorpio Moon people are patient. I bet you will end up really close. Call her bluff. He had really light blond hair, and wanted to dye it blue when he was about 15. I pretended it was great, that summer means everyone needs a change! He never brought it up again. I have a feeling you will be fine! Sending love your way. Jean P.S. You reminded me of David Bowie's "Oh, You Pretty Things (don't you know you are driving your mothers and fathers insane :)

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 28, 2017:

Wow, that's a lot of Scorpio, you are very intense and passionate. And the Leo ascendant also lets others see that passion! The Leo helps you be more outgoing with all those Scorpio placements,though both are fixed signs and you like to get your way! Yes, having a Scorpio Moon can make it hard for you to understand your own emotions. You may need to step away from them or take a break before you make important decisions. You like good things in life (Leo) but will work hard to get them at good prices (Scorpio). Your emotions are multiplied by having so many planets in Scorpio, just give yourself time and meditate or talk a long walk before you make decisions. Also, you can trust your gut feelings, they never fail you. Take care, Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 28, 2017:

I'm sorry, besides these questions I have a whole practice, so forgive me, I don't recall the other facts here. His Cancer Sun goes well with your Capricorn rising and Scorpio Moon. Your Cancer sun and his Cancer rising are good too, it's a gentle and romantic vibe, and you can read each other well. Cancer and Capricorn are opposites, but that's good, people think that's bad. But it means you want the same things. You just will go after them in different ways. We can always do a chart or tarot reading at some time, details on I get crazy busy now at the beginning of the New Year. Have a good one!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 28, 2017:

Well, you did a good job on yourself. The intensity of the Scorpio is calmed by the balance that Libra needs. The fire of his Sag Moon is good with your Sag in Uranus and Pluto, although I can't tell without a chart what houses the planets are in. Your Jupiter in Aries works well with him too. His bluntness won't hurt you, he is truthful. With two Venus in Scorpio people, you need to avoid jealousy and being too possessive, as Sag needs some breathing room. Take a night out without each other once a week. Your Taurus Ascendant is a calming one, and also romantic, which is nice. You come off as kind and gentle. But you are outgoing when you are interested in what's going on.

There are contradictions in astrology charts, and normally I don't think people with the same sun sign usually work out. But there seems to be a lot of other influences here that can work in your favor. I can't see what houses the planets are in without drawing out a whole horoscope, so can't know what areas of your lives are affected and how. But on the surface here it looks OK to proceed. Best Wishes. Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 28, 2017:

So you are Scorpio and he is Libra. Signs next to each other are usually good. Even in a romantic relationship, you will always have a strong element of "friendship" there. It should go well for you. Best Wishes. Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 28, 2017:

That's not surprising, I see it a lot. When I was a beginner I had charts of a few people close to me that I studied. One was my sister in law to be, who was only 16 at the time, very artistic. She did nails and I never pictured her as a mortician. But she had a moon in the 8th Scorpio house. It's also a county job, and she's ready to retire next year! I just spent Christmas Eve. with her, my husband passed four years ago. Have a happy year. Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 28, 2017:

Hi Neil,

Having a Scorpio Ascendant, moon and Pluto makes you very intense and passionate. Your emotions are so complex, you probably have trouble figuring them out yourself. Pluto is the planet of sudden change, and rules Scorpio, the sign of regeneration and changes. So you will change and reinvent your life several times, to be and do different things. The Sun, Saturn and Mercury in Capricorn are a good balance to this too. Having 3 planets in one astrology sign is called a stellium, so your Scorpio and Capricorn influences are very strong. Capricorn is an Earth sign, and will help to calm down some of that Scorpio passion. Capricorn people are ambitious and hard working, and want to be achievers. So are Scorpios, but with both together you have a lot of potential. Mercury is how you think, so in an earth sign it won't let you get carried away! I see you as very serious, a shrewd thinker, and a bit secretive. You are careful about who you spend your time with. You can also have some psychic ability and like to build things, or repurpose them. Best of luck to you. Jean

Neil on December 28, 2017:

I have moon, north node, pluto and ascendant in Scorpio


Sun, Saturn, mercury in capricorn.

Can I know more about myself based on above?

Kate on December 23, 2017:

Amazing...I just read this information for the first time and I too have been a mortician for over 30 years!!!

Iselineve on December 20, 2017:

I feel I understand myself better from reading your article, thank you. I'm just starting to learn about how my Scorpio Moon sign, and I love the intensity, bravery, the seeking of authenticity I find in me / my moon sign and the spiritual and transformational side, but it can also be overwhelming for me and for people around me.

I'm Libra Sun with Scorpio Moon. I feel as if it is both enriching and a difficult mix. The libra side of me is laid-back, and my Scorpio moon fills me to the brim with emotions making my own scales swing. Exciting, spiritual and exhausting. The saying “Still waters, run deep” never rung more true. I do sometimes worry I will always be too intense for other people though. I'm learning to manage my intense inner emotions, so to not get so overwhelmed.

I've startes seeing a fellow Libra, and he has Sagittarius in his moon sign. I am attracted to his "fire", and feel we share some of the intensity, bravery, authenticity and adventouresness, though he is more blunt than I, which I really like actually. We also have many similarities as Libra sun signs, seeking harmony and closeness, that make me feel as if we are good together, because we are so good to each other.

It’s all very new though, and I do wonder if his dual-mix of being laid-back and firey - will be the one that can understand and deal with my laid-back libra - emotional intense Scorpio moon vibe? I think his Asc is Sagittarius also. I think he has Scorpio in his Venus, and so do I.

I would be very thankful for your thoughts on our “compatibility” and what we should perhaps be mindful of, as I thought your answers to other comments were very insightful.

I don't know his full chart, but mine is:

Sun - Libra

Asc - Taurus

Moon -Scorpio

Mercury - Scorpio

Venus - Scorpio

Mars - Libra

Jupiter - Aries

Saturn - Sagittarius

Uranus - Sagittarius

Neptune - Capriciorn

Pluto - Scorpio

Thank you!
