When the powerful moon meets moody Scorpio, get ready for drama!

Unlike Taurus, which prioritizes physical and material possessions, the most significant influence in this placement is emotions—and lots of them. Scorpios want to get to the truth of the matter in any situation, no matter the cost. So when the moon is in Scorpio, this can lend itself to emotional outbursts when seeking the truth. As this sign is intensely passionate and sexual, this full moon may also bring out some hot sessions in the bedroom and interest in breaking out of your comfort zones. No matter what, you're in for a wild ride.

Moon in Scorpio Personality

On the surface, Scorpio moons appear to be the most controlled of their watery brethren. Lunar Scorpios tend to emote privately. But, like a lake frozen over, their psyches contain any number of lurking sensitivities and troubles. Unfortunately for their loved ones (and those trying to join those ranks), they don't readily divulge their feelings.

Positive Traits

Due to their suspicious dispositions, little gets past their penetrating gazes. Scorpio moons can be human lie detectors, intuiting crookedness from the slightest inconsistency. Naturally, lunar Scorpios understand others' psychology with ease. On the whole, they act as a catalyst for change in anyone they come across—for better or worse.

Negative Traits

Fears of treachery keep lunar Scorpios up at night. Therefore, they may cut people off over minor hurt feelings, feeling that others' actions preclude further hurt. For those they don't remove from their lives, Scorpio moon puts through significant trials. Let (and keep) people in, Scorpio moon! They (usually) don't bite.
