Posts Tagged ‘Scorpio moon’

I’ve read a lot of things about the Scorpio Moon. It’s in its fall in this sign, it’s a difficult position, it’s deep and intense, it’s secretive, it’s regenerative, it’s suspicious, it goes through intense moods, it’s probing. It’s all true.

But have you ever been close to someone with this moon? Or rather is someone with this moon close to you? If they are, then have you noticed the Scorpio Moon pattern? Inevitably, if you spend enough time with them, they’re going to pull you deep into the intense emotional zone they live in. A moon driven to intensely look at and examine every emotion is going to make you do the same. They will take whatever it is and peel each layer and keep peeling till you’re both exhausted and sweating and naked. They get off on it, they need it. This intense communion of truth and revelation.

I don’t think I tried really hard
To make you see
That there is only so much time we get
Before we have to die

If you had stopped being afraid,
even for a minute,
I would have explained
 “Drop the pretence,
We don’t have a lot of time.”

What were you afraid of revealing?
The pain, the shame, the loneliness?
My beloved fool, those run through us all.

Look at me, I’m not afraid to say
That my love for you broke open my heart
And wherever it shattered,
It was divinized.

Transiting Moon is in Scorpio and I’ve been having very Scorpionic conversations. About shared resources, slavery, the perceived divide between what we call our “mind” and what we call our “heart.” About the latter, I’m hoping my friends will write about that. They’ve hit on something interesting and it will make a valuable astrology post. (more…)

scorpio moonI’ve been wanting to write for a while. Last month, I spent some time thinking about people with Sun-Pluto aspects and was geared up to write my “amateur’s view” on that. But then I saw Jeremy Neal’s post on the same subject and walked back into my kennel with my tail between my legs. He is easily one of the best astrology writers on the Net right now: and his writing style is serious and profound without being boring. I also adore writers who are witty and sassy, but what has me hooked onto Mr. Neal’s blog is the intensity that comes across in his work. Which kinda makes sense: he and I both have Scorpio moons. If you want to check him out, his blog is http://chirotic.wordpress.com/

To go back to what I was saying earlier, I could have still written about Sun-Pluto, and I will by and by, but when I thought about it just now, it had lost its emotional charge. If I had written, I would have written using just my mind and that seemed kinda cold. When you write with both your mind and heart, it’s always better; maybe because that emotional charge communicates itself to others who read it and some of it can be recaptured by the writer when she reads it after a while.

I told my husband that I want to write but I don’t have a topic! And he, the calm, patient man that he is, said that it would come to me. So I went about my business thinking about this lack of topic and thinking that I wanted to write something I was feeling passionate about. One of my favorite quotes is from the movie Serendipity, “Greeks didn’t write obituaries. When a man died they asked just one question: Did he have passion?” And then it came to me! Passion! Scorpio Moon!

Both western and Vedic astrology will tell you that this isn’t the best position for the moon, and although I find that inarguable, I still love my Scorpio Moon. I like the intensity and I’m pretty intense about things that matter to me. And even more, I seek it in others. I have most fun when I feel passionately about something or someone. But life is, for the most part, a mundane thing and it is best lived with a normal amount of engagement. The constant rollercoaster of emotion that this placement needs is a sure-fire way to get burnt-out.

I’ve always liked this quote, “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s.” Perhaps it is my Saturn’s trine to the Moon that resonates with this pragmatic way of looking at things, but whatever it is, I’ve made my peace with my moon. I avoid doing things and being with people who bore me. Although I always test as a strong extravert in psychological tests and enjoy most people, I can’t be with many of them for prolonged periods of time. I enjoy a certain amount of small talk but after a while, I need more. And if I don’t get it, I get mildly depressed. So I made a deal with myself last year: to avoid social contact that bores me. This limits my social life and sometimes I am aware of the lack, but on the whole I know it is best for me (and for others).

My moon is in the ninth house and easily pleased when I’m reading something that grips me. So having found out the needs of my moon, I’ve learnt to honor them. I’d like to end this by saying that we lived happily ever after, my Moon and me, but you know Scorpio Moons, they never can let well enough alone, so who knows? 🙂
