When the Sun in Scorpio meets the Moon in Taurus in a natal chart, there’s immense potential for self-transformation and the healing of others, as well as a solid, satisfying sense of inner stability. There’s a natural polarity between these signs, which means that successful navigation of this sun-moon combination depends on the ability to synthesize the solar drives and lunar needs.
The Scorpio Sun’s life force is stimulated by a propensity for plumbing the depths.
There’s a hankering to penetrate situations and people to the core in order to ignite the vitality of the solar scorpion. Gaining control through the knowledge of psychological dynamics is the realm in which the 8th sign of the zodiac operates.
In order to continuously thrive in this sphere, an allowance must be made for considerable (and probably frequent) life changes. Consistent transformation implies the periodic shedding of a symbolic skin, which contains the contents of things outworn and obsolete. This ritual insinuates that Scorpio Sun’s have moved on to another level of development which now promises more challenges.
The Sun’s placement in Scorpio suggests that your intensity and depth of feeling, which sometimes manifests as internal turmoil, can be used, in it’s most constructive sense, as a healing agent.
You’ve walked the emotional tightrope and been scalded by the fires on life only to emerge from a symbolic “death” (or deaths) as a stronger person who has survived, and now vowed to LIVE. Through these experiences, you’re now certified by the cosmos to show others how to navigate the heat of the blaze if you will risk vulnerability and divulge your secrets.
Your Taurus Moon utilizes the Scorpio Sun’s energy to form a personality whose emotional needs center around steadiness, preserving the status quo, material stability and taking your time to enjoy all of the sensual pleasures life has to offer.
When we consider this sun-moon blend, we only need to think about the interaction between a scorpion and a bull. The bull, symbolized by the Taurus Moon has an emotional investment in staying in it’s place. It’s comfortable and really sees no need to move. After all, it’s physical needs are being met and in most aspects, it FEELS good.
The Scorpion is small in size, but potent in power. It will not be ignored.
On a symbolic level, if the Bull is grazing and the scorpion appears,with it’s intent on changing the material conditions, the bull has the following choices : (a) re-vamp it’s options and consider a new locale to fulfill it’s needs or (b) become aggressively protective defending it’s territory and possibly suffer the fatal, paralyzing sting of the scorpion.
Sure, it might get lucky and step on it, but why take the risk, right?
One of the ultimate lessons of this sun-moon blend is that the only constant in life is change. Physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual change. By surrendering to this maxim, we’re able to gain inner peace because we can begin to take our time to “smell the roses” enjoy the sensual and material pleasures of living without feeling like we absolutely must POSSESS them.
