If you have a Scorpio moon sign, your deepest emotions and desires take on the qualities of the Scorpio zodiac sign: mysterious, intense and trustworthy.
Ah, la luna! Your astrology moon sign indicates the “inner you.” If you have a Scorpio moon sign in your natal chart, it means that when you were born, the moon was traveling through the Scorpio zodiac sign. Your moon sign and your Sun sign combined make up a more in-depth portrait of your personality.
So, what does the moon sign even mean?
The moon sign in astrology governs our “inner selves”—those feelings, deep desires and soul urges that not everyone sees. Much like the moon waxes and wanes, reveals and hides itself, the lunar cycles can also affect how much we share or show. Your moon sign can reveal how (and who) you love, or what you need to feel emotionally secure. It also plays a major role in romantic compatibility, revealing how harmonious your dynamic will be.
In the astrological birth chart, the moon sign is your “emotional personality,” a crucial part of understanding what makes you or someone else tick. Since the moon is the celestial body that’s closest to the Earth, our moods and feelings are governed by its movements. In a person’s natal (or birth) chart, the moon sign indicates what will provide us with a sense of home and security—what we need as individuals to feel safe, secure and comfortable. The moon also drives some of our “gut reactions”—how we respond on a primal, instinctive level.
Because the moon comes out at night, the moon sign can also influence our internal “shadow sides”—the parts of ourselves that only become visible when we self-reflect or get vulnerable with people. Often the moon sign doesn’t present externally or immediately like the robust Sun sign or masquerading rising sign, but becomes much more visible as you get to know a person and see how they respond to different life situations.
About the Scorpio moon sign:
Here comes the intensity! Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the Scorpio moon sign have a deep desire for transformation. Much like the Scorpio Sun sign, a Scorpio moon sign individual burns with passion and desire.
Strong sexual chemistry is important to feeling loved for a Scorpio moon sign. You need to know that you’re attractive, and feel quite strongly about the intensity with which you’re attracted to others (or even repulsed for that matter!). When it comes to real desire, it’s either black or white for a Scorpio moon sign. In other words, there’s not a whole lot of room for Fifty Shades of Gray, unless of course there’s a bedroom involved!
If your moon is in Scorpio, chances are you possess a need for extreme trust and security from people in order for them to gain your loyalty. It could seem as if no one is ever able to give a Scorpio moon sign everything they need.
Scorpio moon sign individuals want to help transform other people, too, and give them permission to be vulnerable. Scorpio moon signs are all about perma-bonding, developing a deep sense of trust so that real, raw emotions can be dealt with and shared between two people. Symbolized by the Scorpion and its stinger, if your moon is in Scorpio, chances are you operate well in crisis situations because you’re already familiar with darker emotions.
Ruled by shadowy Pluto, the only real pitfall to the Scorpio moon sign is that they’re not always able to express their emotions in words. A Scorpio moon sign’s feelings can have a tendency to overtake them in a visceral, all-consuming way. Scorpio moon sign individuals can also go for long periods of time being solitary, and then suddenly end up in a soul-stirring partnership that lasts a lifetime.
