Moon in Scorpio
Your Moon sign describes your emotional and instinctual energies. Another key component in the makeup of the basic ego/personality, your Moon sign reveals those things you do instinctively, how you are likely to react emotionally, how you give and receive nurturing, as well as the genetic or cellular memories carried within the unconscious mind. It describes your emotional, instinctual, genetic and intuitive makeup.
With the Moon in the deeply penetrating, powerful, intense and transformative sign of Scorpio, you are likely to be a person with a very passionate and compelling emotional nature, who seeks to experience the absolute essence of emotional interchange and intimacy in most relationships, especially those that are especially valuable to you.
The exchange of emotional energy, leading to greater depths of intimacy and awareness, is often the goal of a person with the Moon in Scorpio, and how easily this is achieved will depend on the rest of the chart. By sharing emotional resources, we share the truth about ourselves, and expose ourselves to deeper levels of power and vulnerability, which ultimately leads to inner transformation through mutual intimacy.
The Moon is considered in its’ “fall” in this position, meaning that the depth of your emotions, the strength and apparently awesome power of your instinctual processes, can be so intense as to be at times overwhelming. You may constantly precipitate crises of awareness for yourself as you shift through the many layers of emotional revelation that are available to you.
You feel intensely, for better or for worse. The emotional nature seems vulnerable in this position, for there is great sensitivity at the same time as an instinctual awareness of the need to grow through pain and transformation. By entering and resolving emotional crises, you generate greater emotional and spiritual freedom for yourself. There may be a tendency to try and protect this vulnerability by hiding the true depths of feeling from others, or from yourself. Then, you may attempt to control and dominate others with emotional excess, lashing out at them before they can “get to you”, and find out how sensitive and vulnerable you really are. In this way, you avoid the emotional confrontation of true intimacy, of letting them see how deeply your emotional needs run. Again, trusting the right people with your emotional well-being becomes the key to healing and transformation.
The Moon here is often associated with a person who has a very developed ability to sense the emotional undercurrents around themselves. You will tend to respond from a position of raw truth, pinpointing what you, and others, truly want and need in a situation- which can be quite confronting, and always compelling. If you fail to awaken to these undercurrents within you, you will tend to bottle your emotions up until someone, or something, makes you explode.
This lunar position is excellent for the exploration of depth psychology. How easily you can do this will have much to do with what you yourself are hiding, and how willing you are to explore your own dark cupboards, before focusing upon what others keep in theirs. This position of the Moon calls for great emotional honesty, an all-or-nothing preparedness to live from a position of power and truth. Otherwise, you may tend to display the more negative and poisonous potential of the Moon here. Overwhelmed by your own vulnerability, you may seek to dominate and destroy the emotional values of others. You may take others down with you rather than face the truth of who you are.
The potential power contained here is enormous, and you have the opportunity to be a powerful force for change and transformation in others lives. You may be the one others turn to with their deepest secrets and most hidden pain. With your awareness and empathy for the whole human condition, you can witness them, and help them to heal.
The Moon here is often associated with a person who has highly developed intuitive and psychic gifts. There will often be an attraction to the occult, mysterious and darker sides of life. How appropriate it is for you spend much time here will depend upon the rest of the chart makeup.
