5 Differences Between A Scorpio Sun And Scorpio Moon Sign

People usually know what their sun signs are.

When you're at a party and somebody asks, "What's your sign?" he or she is referring to the sun sign.

Your sun sign is your personality: your interests, your behavior and your external character.

It's the side of you everybody sees.

But it's only half the picture.

Your moon sign is just as integral as your sun sign. This is your inner world: the way you think, feel, interpret and relate to the world around you.

This is the hidden part of you most people don't know about.

For a person whose moon is in Scorpio, it's often not pretty.

Scorpio sun signs already have bad reputations, and the traits responsible for those reputations are even more pronounced in those who have Scorpio moons.

Here are five little-known insights about people whose moon sign is Scorpio:

1.They take everything personally.

Scorpio moons can get fired up by something as simple as somebody not responding to a text message. Even when they know better and can logically understand it isn't about them, they can't help but make it about them.

This is especially true when it comes to meeting people for the first time and making snap judgements about them.

If a Scorpio moon meets somebody shy, he or she might make the mistake of believing the person doesn't like him or her.

Instead of killing that person with kindness to win him or her over, a Scorpio moon will automatically respond with coldness.

Their snap judgements are often wrong, but Scorpio moons have to make sure of it before they replace their coolness with warmth.

The trick to dealing with Scorpio moons is recognizing their propensity for taking things personally.

2. They have giant egos.

A Scorpio moon has an ego that can rival a Leo's.

It isn't as obvious because again, the moon sign is apparent mostly behind the scenes.

But Scorpio moons have a strong lust for power and control. They want to be respected and feel valued.

They don't go about it the way Leos do, which is by acting showy and being in the center of attention.

It comes out more when their egos are attacked. They get defensive.

It's that fragile ego that causes them to take things personally.

3. They hold grudges like crazy.

Scorpio moons may forgive, but they'll never forget.

Actually, they might not forgive at all.

They have a low threshold for taking crap. If you do bad by them, it will take a lot of groveling to make it right.

But that's what Scorpio moons want.

They want you to show you care and are remorseful. They often feel the reason you hurt them in the first place was because you didn't care.

The only way to make things right is by making a big effort, even if you know they're being petty. Scorpio moons aren't going to suck up their pride, so you might have to if you want to return to their good sides.

Let's be honest: Their good sides are so charming and alluring, you'll want to come back.

Even though they have these negative traits, they're special, fascinating and magnetic.

4. If you hit them, they'll hit back harder.

They can't help but fight fire with fire.

For Scorpio suns, this would most likely take the form of being upfront and directly confrontational if they feel they're being attacked.

But if you're a Scorpio moon, you're more likely to seek revenge in more subtle ways. Passive-aggressiveness is a Scorpio moon's go-to weapon.

Pretending he or she doesn't see you or giving you the silent treatment are classic examples.

Revenge is the number one game for Scorpio moons. They just pretend they don't know what they're doing, and maintain their charming innocence.

5. They're super emotional.

Underneath it all, Scorpio moons are sensitive.

Unlike Pisces, who cry when they're hurt because they wear their hearts on their sleeves, Scorpios mask their pain.

They are much deeper than their need for power suggests. Beneath the grudges and defensive behavior, Scorpio moons are really seeking out love.

They feel everything intensely, and they keep their feelings bottled up inside.

It takes a lot for them to trust you enough to be vulnerable.

Emotions are human, and Scorpio moons want to be superhuman.

If Scorpio moons learn how to embrace this sensitive side of themselves and just feel the feels without trying to hide or mask them, life would go so much smoother for them.

It isn't easy, especially when their egos have such a strong hold on them. But it is possible.

Just because it's in their sign, that doesn't mean they can't overcome it and choose a different destiny.

You can easily find out what your moon sign is in less than a minute with a simple Google search.

Knowing your moon sign will give you a more complete understanding of yourself, especially for the outlier traits that don't seem characteristic of your sun sign.

Astrology isn't a magical, woo-woo belief. It's really an accurate, basic description of the type of person you are.

As Carl Gustav Jung said, "We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more."
