As the Earth revolves around the Sun, so does the Moon revolve around the Earth. While our Sun sign tells us what “season” of the year we come from, our Moon sign and its relationship to the Sun tells us what “time of the month” we come from. The Moon’s phases pulse with the tides, like breathing in and out, like a flower opening and closing. While the Sun rules the day representing our outward expression and visible public lives, the Moon rules the night, representing our inner private lives, where we absorb and reflect our inherited circumstances and surroundings: our habits, instincts, emotions, patterns, comforts, our bodies, our origins, our mothers.
The Moon in Scorpio is in a fixed water sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, Mars. So the Moon in Scorpio is more guarded, tempestuous and vengeful, but also capable of feeling deeply and intensely in a more positive sense as well. People with this placement tend to especially find comfort in securing their privacy and anonymity. While deep insight into the psychology of others is a potential result of this placement, there can also be the tendency towards obsession, secrecy, jealousy and other unhealthy patterns or gross habits, and they tend not take care of themselves. Sometimes this can be linked back to early experiences where survival meant avenging the wrongs done to them, or coping with the consequences of neglect.
This is especially true if you were born at night and/or with Cancer or Scorpio Rising. If you were born at night you will tend to exhibit more of the positive qualities of this placement, and potentially more than your Sun sign. If you were born during the day you will tend to exhibit more of the difficulties associated with this placement and identify more with your Sun sign.
