Moon in Scorpio - Yesterday morning the moon entered the Fixed Water Sign of Scorpio - this is a moon transit time of intensity and heightened sensitivity. It is good for focusing and doing psychic work because of the deep emotions and desires Scorpio brings. The emotionally intense Scorpio gives us the desire to keep our strongest feelings to ourselves. This secretive aspect of Scorpio is a way of holding power, but also assists in the internal processes of change. Although Scorpio is a fixed sign, it is really about metamorphosis - the most profound kind of change. Nothing can stop Scorpionic transformation once started. Emotional resentments from the past can surface and block your heightened creative energy, so fight urges to be suspicious, secretive and moody.

It is the reclusive witch that figures prominently in literature from biblical to fairy tales. Solitaries are thoughtful, comfortable alone, and answer to no one but themselves. This is not to say that they aren't competent socially. They are often fun, witty and entertaining in social situations.
