Moon In Scorpio – What It Means

Two ways for this to happen.  

One of them is for the moon in the sky to move through the sign of Scorpio.  The second way is for you to have your natal moon in Scorpio.  Let’s explore both.  

Moon In Scorpio In The Sky 

This happens when the moon is situated in Scorpio itself, and affect us all.  It is a time of wanting to get to the bottom of emotions.  Down to the nitty gritty.  This can be frightening for some, especially if you don’t have Scorpio featured in your natal chart, but, scary as it may be, it needs to happen.  

Scorpio is a powerful sign, ruled by both Mars and Pluto, and governs the 8th house in astrology. That house is called “the magic house” and “the house of the occult”.  I personally call it the “digging house”  Yes, it rules cemeteries, but that isn’t my main point.  Scorpio creates a strong need to dig for the truth, and by that digging gain the deepest knowledge of any situation.  That’s very complicated and oftentimes the results are startling, but, the greater good is always the motivation.  

With the moon in Scorpio, we may feel uneasy about many situations in our lives.  Especially if change is in the wind.  Keeping in mind that Scorpio is a fixed sign, meaning that it does not want to simply “go with the flow”, changes can be more difficult to justify during the days when the moon is in this sign.  

There’s a sexual energy to Scorpio as well, but, again, it can be pretty complicated.  It has to be right, feel right, and even more importantly remain right, without hesitation from the other party, in order for us to feel good about our mates during the days when the moon is in Scorpio.  

Even though the moon moves quickly through a sign, lasting only 2 to 3 days, Scorpio is such a big energy that even in that small amount of time we may feel the impact.

Waiting and watching are two words of advice when we have the moon in Scorpio, and that happens about every 28 to 30 days.   You may not always like what you see and hear from others around this time, however, you may be able to use it to your advantage.  Scorpio’s motto is “I create therefore I am.”  You can make your own kind of magic now, and it may just be that you make a big wish become real. 

Moon In Scorpio Natal Placement

A placement such as this will make you experience strong emotions, including strong doubts, about the people around you.  You will likely be attracted to those who are much more emotionally needy than you, and it’s also likely that you feel good when coupled with a “clinging vine” kind of love.  

You are not one to voice your opinions quickly.  Instead, you take a silent approach, at least at first, and listen with keen interest.  Your ability to see what’s below the surface is remarkable, and you rarely if ever have to be told what a person “really meant”>  

Reading between the lines is also natural for you.  Many with this placement are natural born psychologist, criminologists, and of course, undertakers.  Archeology is also a good possibility for many of you, either as  a professional or a rather gifted amateur.  

Contrary to some statements made about Scorpio, this is not a sign that likes to fool around.  In any way.  It’s a very serious sign, with a good heart and true kindness that must be won over, granted, but when a person with their moon in Scorpio gives their word, it’s usually something that’s not only very special, but lasts forever.

    My last boyfriend had his moon in Scorpio. You are right about lasting forever. Two years later he says he still loves me. We can’t be together because of other things. Sad. But you are spot on!
