Those born with their Moon in Scorpio generally enjoy people who can go into depth about their interests. They love to learn and inform the uninformed about the conspiracies occurring right under their very noses. Scorpio Moons are incredibly passionate. They indulge in their interests with the intent to be the change they wish to see in the world.
Moon in Scorpio people are intimate with the deepest, darkest parts of the human psyche. This familiarity with what’s hidden from view is sometimes a gift. It can also sometimes be a curse, depending on how the individual manifests it.
Those with a Scorpio Moon have a hyperawareness of what’s not being said. They can pick up on cues and can sense what is simmering under the surface. It makes them masters of “subtext” but can also be somewhat of a burden. In cases when nothing is being hidden, they may look for a deeper meaning, for things that may not be there, leading to paranoid behaviour. Indeed, it’s nigh impossible to pull the wool over their eyes, and they are surprisingly realistic for being so passionate.

Many Scorpio Moons are famous for their secrecy. They are wary of letting people get too close to them, mostly if they have been burned in love.
In early life, a Scorpio Moon may find themselves taking a lot of things personally. Before they can adequately process emotions, they may be quite naive and vulnerable. Once hurt, they carry these scars with them and potentially let their hurt influence future choices and decisions.
Still Waters Run Deep
Those with the moon in Scorpio often try to act cool and under control, but there’s a brooding intensity below the surface. They experience intense feelings, which they often fear to express. This makes even intimate friends and family reluctant to probe too deeply.
Scorpios Moons gravitate towards those who listen to understand them and those who can empathize with their perspective. They are in a constant search for their kin, and sometimes what connects these people with others the most is an understanding of mutual suffering. In matured Scorpio Moons, depth, passion, and deep love for others will join rather than fear and sadness.
Astrologer Kevin Burk perceives the moon to be in its detriment when in Scorpio. That means it’s tough to respond with Scorpio intensity in everyday life. It frightens people, and Scorpio Moons instinctively know that and bottle up their feelings. Scorpio Moons must work to pull back from their natural inclination to shut themselves away from others, for they will never feel accepted if they do not share. The right people will love them, and they have to remember that sharing begets sharing. It is not a one-way street.
Many Astrologers say that Scorpio Moons are put through the rigours of love and life that become a matter of life and death. It’s their capacity for profound psychic upheaval that keeps Scorpio Moons from diving off the deep end. Like their Solar counterparts, they are strong enough to handle some of the worst scenarios and failures and bounce back, renewed and stronger.
Intuitive and Sensitive
Scorpio Moons are extremely sensitive to their environment and intuitive. A Scorpio Moon will be much more sensitive to the negativity around them than regular people. They may soak up energies that others are putting out. These individuals live with the constant stimulation of feeling, mixed with high expectations that they set for themselves. This leads them to moodiness, melancholy and misery and prone to extreme behaviour and actions.
If they do not learn how to express themselves healthily, they will find themselves lashing out from their suppressed emotions. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, which means that these individuals are frequently contending with subjects around risk, regeneration, and delving deep into what is repressed or buried.
The Scorpio Moon needs full whole-soul engagement in everyday life but might only find this in passionate, dramatic love affairs. A challenge is for them to see that in other areas of their life, too.
Over time, you will learn to trust your strong instincts about situations and people.
Scorpio Moon in Relationships
Those with their Moon in Scorpio have a profound need for intense emotional engagement and experience an extremely hard-to-break attachment to the people and things they love. Depending on where their Moon is in their chart, this could be doubly tough for them.
Due to their emotional vulnerability, they can become very defensive and may have difficulty trusting others and openly sharing their feelings until they know someone well.
Emotional Control and Depth
They need to feel emotionally in control, born out of a fear of loss or betrayal, possibly thanks to a past hurt. Despite their seemingly ever-present insecurities, these Moon types are given immense inner strength and courage. They can serve as a huge source of emotional support for those around them. Those with their Moon in Scorpio can be the most steadfast friends with the biggest hearts who will always be there for you when you need them.
These individuals make great lovers and romantic partners. When in the best form, provide their significant others with an endless supply of love, support and generosity.
Never superficial and sometimes somewhat obsessive, Moon in Scorpio people feel the need to plumb the very depths of their emotions, which tend to be strictly black or white without any shades of grey.
