Watery Cancer Moon is like the rain that falls from the sky. Watery Scorpio Moon is like the deepest part of the dark ocean. Together, you actually get a cycle of life-giving water. Deep, dark, and intense Scorpio sees vulnerable, loving, and nurturing Cancer as someone it can be at peace with. The scorpion and the crab are alike in many ways: underneath that tough exoskeleton and behind those pinchers and stingers is something soft and vulnerable.
These intuitive and psychic moons understand each other. They may just know what the other is thinking or feeling, and they have a natural empathy for each other. It doesn't scare them to get so close so quickly. Scorpio Moon feels protected by Cancer Moon, and Cancer Moon feels desired and wrapped up safely by Scorpio Moon. They will marry because there is no one else in the world they would rather be with, and it will be a very romantic affair, probably held at night.
But before that, this is a fairytale courtship, possibly even love at first sight. It starts strong, intense, and magical. These two happily spend all of their time together and all of their time communicating with each other when away, though they have a psychic connection that keeps them in touch.
These two passionate, loving creatures will probably want to be together forever, and in the next life, and in the next. Cancer Moon creates a beautiful, secure home for the two of them, and Scorpio Moon fills it with meaning and desire. Scorpio Moon is happy to bring home the bacon while Cancer Moon takes care of the home. Together, they cherish the children they have and look forward to facing life together. These two will grow old together, and they may actually die together. One does not want to live without the other. If they do live to old age, one will die and the other will slip away peacefully afterward.
Chances are they don't actually fight. They are champions of fighting. Cancer Moon brings a gun to a knife fight. Scorpio Moon brings a canister of tear gas and a mask to a knife fight. They will cut to the root of the problem, and right into the heart of their opponent. The problem is that they see each other so clearly that they are always exposed and always vulnerable to one another. They're more likely to turn against a common enemy with joint fury than they are to turn on each other. Are they secretly afraid of each other? Maybe. Is that kind of sexy? Oh hell yes.
Cancer Moon loves sex because it reinforces the intimate bond. Scorpio Moon loves sex because it gives it the opportunity to meld with another person and experience absolutely vulnerability and ecstasy. It is the most sexual of the moon signs, and it loves sex in any way it can get it. Cancer Moon wants to give Scorpio Moon what it wants. Scorpio Moon loves all of it - the teasing, the foreplay, the positions, the orgasm, the afterglow, the lingering in bed, and the falling asleep. It wants to hold Cancer Moon through all of it, and it wants to be held.
So, whatever you can imagine two people doing together in the bedroom, they're going to do it at least once. And everyone knows when they want to have sex with each other, because the air becomes thick and heavy with their lust for each other. Both Cancer Moon and Scorpio Moon want to set the mood, and they begin by looking at each other, even when riding in the car, even while riding in the elevator.
This is terribly uncomfortable for the other people around them, who can't help but feel a little voyeuristic watching these two Moons lock eyes.
For Cancer Moon and Scorpio Moon, the bedroom is a sacred place, and their sexuality is probably kept a secret from most people. For as much sex as they have, they don't talk about it much. They're not ashamed; it's that the sex will lose it's magic if brought into the garish light of day through casual conversation.
The only real problem here is that knowing each other so well means knowing how to press each other's buttons so well. These two know exactly how to hurt the other at any given moment, and if engaged in any sort of power struggle, they will go for the jugular. Scorpio Moon is more prone to engaging in power struggles with lovers, while Cancer Moon is slightly less willing. These two want to be either the dominant or the submissive person in the relationship, but they usually both want to be dominant at some point, which may cause conflict. Scorpio Moon wants all or nothing; Cancer Moon simply wants all.
If they can both learn 1) to keep a little space and 2) that love is not all or nothing and 3) that they can be equals, they can keep things going beautifully. They don't need to be each other's only companion or friend, and they don't have to live their lives at fever pitch as if it were a soap opera. They also have to understand that a relationship is a give and take, and that sometimes, one has more power than the other, and one trusts the other more. The likelihood that they will seriously hurt each other is low, however, and they will stay together even if they hurt each other badly.
