Moon in Scorpio

When you are relaxed and most yourself you are, well, really, you’re never relaxed. You are intense, powerful, master of your domain and always on the prowl. Like a wild animal, you sleep with one eye open. You are ever watchful to protect your territory, psychic and manifest. You serve the weak and goad the strong to attain your sense of justice. You base your justification on the belief (paraphrasing Martha Nussbaum; wiki) that “a human life is a thing that can be invaded, wounded and violated by another’s act in many ways. For this penetration, the only remedy that seems appropriate is a counter invasion, equally deliberate, equally grave. And to right the balance truly, the retribution must be exactly, strictly proportional to the original encroachment. It differs from the original act only in the sequence of time and in the fact that it is response rather than original act.” Those of us who don’t have the gift or stomach for this sort of thing nevertheless silently applaud you, the Walt Kowalski’s of this world.

Your emotions are as tumultuous as a storm at sea but you never reveal them because that would give people a way to get to you. So you look implacable or even innocent, masquerading as your opposite sign, Taurus. You never forget a slight, never forgive an injury and sometimes find affrontery where it is not intended. You may confuse another person’s free will with a personal betrayal. Always on the verge of being permanently embittered, you take everything very personally. You live in an enormously subjective Universe, all the way down to the 9th rung of hell. Still you try to be as magificent as your bird, the eagle, seeing everything but reserving judgment and acting only after careful scrutiny. hoping to strike in the dark when least expected. “Shock and awe” is your middle name. Undeniably the most sexual of the zodiac, you are never promiscuous. You are stalking a perfect alchemical union and are capable of long periods of celibacy until the right person appears. You know “it” instantly and throw yourself into preliminary rites of purification reminiscent of a Vulcan pon farr.

You are interested in one thing only: power. Power over others that comes from power over the Self. Incredibly self disciplined, you are a formidable enemy and an incomparable friend. Most of you mate for life but it is not always with the person you are married to. You have xray vision where others are concerned. No secret can be withheld from your probe including eventually all the mysteries of the Universe. You know only too well there is no such thing, really, as a personal boundary. This is a door that swings both ways, so you are always a little paranoid.

Your mantra is “I Spy. Then Do or Die.” If you set your mind on something you will get it, no matter how long it takes. This can be a good thing and a bad thing. Some of you wait 5, 10 even 20 years for a shot at the object of your obsession, I mean desire, and by then most of us would say, Who cares? The whole world has changed in 5 years, not to mention 20 but your intensity never wanes. Same for your enemies. You just dive down to the bottom of the pool and hang until they have a weak moment — and we all eventually do. As Frank Sinatra is reputed to have said, “Revenge is a dish best served cold”.

What stresses you is very little. Like a cockroach, your ability to survive anything is legendary and both the source of and result of your personal power.

When you are pressured, stressed or frightened, you hide it. You despise weakness in yourself and yet you can be infinitely compassionate with others.
