Scorpio Moon Sign: Personality & Compatibility
We have all met people who are more mysterious than the Bermuda triangle. No matter how hard you try to figure them out, you just can’t tell what lies beneath the surface. When I started developing an interest in astrology, I used to try to understand these people through their sun signs. While it did help a little, I still couldn't make sense of why the bubbly Sagittarius was so secretive? Or why the emotional Cancer was so stern and cold? But as I dug deeper into astrology, I discovered the sign that controls these emotional impulses. The sign that dominates the sun signs when it comes to feelings. And here is all you need to know about one of those signs, the Scorpio Moon Sign, its personality and compatibility!
What is a Moon sign?
Let’s refresh our concepts on Moon signs. The sun sign is the sign of the zodiac in which the sun was at the birth. However, as the earth moves around the sun, certain signals change. So, the sun sign typically takes 30-31 days to change. All the people born during that time belong to a particular sign of light.
As with the signs of the sun, the signs of the moon are the sign of the zodiac in which the moon is at the time of birth. Still, there is a difference. While the signs of the sun depending on the earth's revolution around the sun, the moon sign depends on the moon's movement around the earth. Moon signs, therefore, change faster than sun signs do.
Because of its shorter period of transition relative to the earth's around the sun, visiting all zodiac signs usually takes a month to the moon. That means it remains in one sign for about 2 days. This makes it difficult to reliably classify the sign of the moon with only the date of birth. Moon signs are determined according to the person's name, period, and place of birth.
So, what does your moon sign say about you? It may be assumed, in one sense, that the moon sign decides who we are inside. The sign of the moon governs and decides the emotions which we transmit. Your moon sign defines how we feel about things, and how we convey those feelings. So, you may have an Aries sun sign, but you may feel unable to show the characteristic selfishness with them. That is presumably because you've got a symbol of the Gemini moon.
But all of that the sun sign does for you, isn't it? Okay, yeah, and then no. The sun sign regulates how we act. But the motives and obsessions, impulses and tempers which go into our reasoning are a result of the moon sign's influence. You may come across as a shy person since Taurus is your sun sign. Yet you know that the center of attention is one the inside you love because Leo is your moon sign. The Sun Sign from Taurus helps you keep the urges in check. But that doesn't mean there aren't any.
What does having a Scorpio Moon mean?
What is the moon sign for Scorpio? Would you identify yourself as someone who feels intense and passionate emotions? That’s what your Scorpio moon sign is doing to you. The emotions of these individuals don’t have a middle ground. They oscillate between two extremes. When they like someone, they will not hear a thing against them. When they hate someone, even God cannot change their mind. Therein lies their first weakness.
People with Scorpio moon sign are stubborn as the wrath of hell. When they decide something, they stand by it through thick and thin. This also tends to make them narrow-minded in debates. Needless to say, it is very difficult to convince them.
They have cold and distant exterior. Which makes some people as, “Is Scorpio Moon manipulative?”. I have met very few people, with Scorpio as their sun signs, who have friendly and warm personalities. If they have Scorpio as their moon sign, then they will be detached.
This adds to the air of mystery around them which makes them so attractive. It is very difficult to not get sexually attracted to a person who has Scorpio in their moon. They have this aura of mystery around them which very few can resist. You feel this urge to drown in that cold, deep gaze and learn what's behind that silent mask.
What few people tend to notice are their empathy and compassion. Sure, they find it difficult to sympathize with something they haven’t experienced. But if you are going through something they have, they will do everything to help you get through the tough times.
When it comes to the people they love, they can kill and die. I did say they live on the extremes, didn’t I? There is a fierce passion in the way the Scorpion love someone. A passion too bright that it can burn anyone who messes with it.
What is Moon in Scorpio attracted to?
Do Scorpio Moons fall in love easily? No. But when they do, its fireworks all around. Intensity, such as theirs, has to be matched. If not, then the other person can feel smothered easily.
People with the moon in Scorpio tend to be attracted to people who are just as strong-willed as they are. They will not waste their time on someone who isn't 100% into the commitments they make. This goes beyond commitment to relationship, to a commitment to life.
Their partner has to be intense and passionate. They will only follow you if they think you are on the same level as them. Or are at least capable of that. Scorpios are not known for their ability to settle for the second-best. The Scorpio moon woman’s personality might differ on this.
They tend to get into complex relationships. They like challenges. And this lands them into relationships which are a struggle for power. But know that they will not be subdued.
They cannot be attracted to someone unless they are sexually aroused by them. Scorpios are one of the most virile signs in the zodiac. They have raw-animal-like sexuality. Which can only be satisfied someone who isn't scared of exploring the wild?
They will never be attracted to someone who they cannot trust. Loyalty and fidelity are extremely important to them. People often ask, “Are Scorpio moons loyal?”. Well, they give what they get.
Moon in Scorpio compatibility
What Moon signs go together? When it comes to the Scorpio moon sign, they are most compatible with Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer. Scorpio and Cancer moon signs. While one loves to let go in a relationship, the other loves to control. And beyond all of that, they understand each other’s emotional needs.
The Scorpio-Scorpio couple represents the complex relationship they love. Their intense, passionate drives can be explosive. It depends on the situation whether the explosion is romantic of volcanic. Either way, they tend to stick together.
The Pisces and Scorpio moon signs are the couple where they complete each other. The Pisces moon sign’s wisdom can calm the Scorpio down. And the Scorpio offers the Pisces the imagination that they crave for.
