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.
