Watery Scorpio Moon is like the deep, dark ocean full of wonders and terrors. Airy Aquarius Moon is like a tornado, overturning everything nearby. Put them together and you have one hell of a storm. They're both stubborn. Scorpio Moon penetrates, and Aquarius Moon overturns and invents. They both want things their way. There is so much potential here only if these two just didn't need small but specific things. They're both daring. They take orders from no one. No one tells them what to think or feel. They're both ready to rumble should someone test them, even though both would rather Scorpio Moon meets Aquarius Moon. Scorpio Moon is attracted to Aquarius Moon's penetrating intellect and disregard for taboos and social norms. Aquarius Moon is attracted to Scorpio Moon's ability to read between the lines and see the potential of any situation in which two people come together. They both enjoy doing things just to shock people.
The problem is when these two turn their energies toward the relationship. Aquarius Moon doesn't like to be questioned about feelings it doesn't think it has. Scorpio Moon doesn't like having its deep emotions reduced to a simple explanation. These strike at the essence of who the other is. Aquarius Moon tends to feel more on the surface and to not dig deeply. Feelings are not complex for them, while they are ever complex for Scorpio Moon. Scorpio Moon, unlike Aquarius Moon, doesn't take thoughts or words at face value. In fact, it places more value on the context and the motivation than on the output. Aquarius Moon says what it means and means what it says, even if it seems unbelievable, cold, or bizarre.
Now, this couple may turn much of their energy outward, and if so, they may actually make it down the aisle. The trouble starts when they have to get serious about finances, home, careers, children, and the future. They want different things. Scorpio Moon has a need for power, and it will work to get it. Aquarius Moon doesn't want power. It wants change. How these two even decide on an apartment to rent or where to hold a wedding may come down to who gives up during an argument.
If these two make it to marriage, they may genuinely have thought that getting married would solve all of their problems, as if a wedding just makes them brand new. Scorpio Moon is probably more cynical of this deep down, but nonetheless wanted to try. They may be focused on a common enemy or on a common cause, and this may last them a while.
These two, however, agree on little else, and this catches up. They like extremes, and they don't budge. One wants children, the other does not. One wants to live in the city, and the other wants to live in the country. The suburbs will not do. One wants to go to film school, and the other wants to start a business. One is very religious, and the other is absolutely not religious. If they do find themselves having to share something, like a child or a mortgage, the fighting gets worse. One wants the kid to go to a special school or to be homeschooled, with no compromise. One wants to take the house off the grid, while the other wants to turn it into a working ceramics studio that needs lots of electricity.
Scorpio Moon wants their lover to be a part of them and to be a part of their lover. Aquarius Moon wants to be a part of the whole world. If monogamy suits them, then they must at least have other close relationships. Scorpio Moon wants the love relationship to be the be-all and end-all If they can't get what they want from each other, both Moons are likely to find fulfillment somewhere else. Scorpio Moon is not likely to leave the marriage. It will find other things to throw itself into, like raising children, or starting a business, or spending a lot of time with friends in need, or volunteering for those less fortunate. Aquarius Moon, on the other hand, is more likely to look for gratification outside of the marriage with someone completely unlike the marriage partner. It may not be sexual at all, but it will still hurt Scorpio Moon.
What do you get when you take the most sexual moon and pair it with the least sexual moon? You get a bad joke about everyone's marriage. But you also get a glimpse into what happens when Scorpio Moon and Aquarius Moon get together at night. Scorpio Moon is the most sexual of the moon signs. The melding of two into one, the seduction, the domination, and the surrender are all the things Scorpio Moon lives for. It's desires are boundless, and in the realm of monogamy and one-on-one, Scorpio Moon reigns supreme. Now, Aquarius Moon is just the opposite. It's the least sexual of the signs. It likes sex because sex is taboo, and it can be social with other people. It likes to both push and break boundaries. Orgies, kinky sex, weird sex, clubs, and other things that make your mother blush are the things Aquarius Moon likes. However, it doesn't like all the mushy stuff that Scorpio Moon likes. It doesn't want to reinforce the love bond physically through sex; it just wants to have sex.
Now, at first, this is one hell of an interesting relationship. Scorpio Moon is game for all of Aquarius Moon's kinks. After all, it loves to explore as much as Aquarius Moon does. However, it also wants the seduction, the foreplay, the pillow talk, and the falling asleep in each other's arms, while Aquarius Moon simply wants to have sex and then move on to the next thing. If it does engage in pillow talk, it usually starts a political debate or some other unsexy, unromantic thing that doesn't bring the two of them closer together. And Scorpio Moon is game for a while. It can be the Dom, the sub, the seducer, the coquette, and the freak. But what it really wants to do is to be all of those things while staring deeply into its lover's eyes as their boundaries dissolve. And this is something Aquarius Moon doesn't want, and neither is satisfied.
This is where the bed death begins. Scorpio Moon stops going through the motions and just rolls over and goes to sleep, while Aquarius Moon goes looking for a more amenable lover outside the relationship.
If these two truly want to make this work, then they will always need a common cause, a common enemy, or some other thing to focus all of their energy. A couple like this can succeed if say, they're running a business, in politics, or run a charity. These are things that Scorpio Moon can throw itself into fully, and where Aquarius Moon can focus it's cool, detached humanitarianism. Once they have directed their energy toward something outside the relationship, they can more easily compromise with each other within the relationship.
Scorpio Moon needs to understand that Aquarius Moon still loves it even if it doesn't want to spend every waking moment together, and even if it wants to maintain individuality. Likewise Aquarius Moon must understand that Scorpio Moon has to be the most important person in Aquarius Moon's life, and that nothing is lost, especially individuality, if Scorpio Moon gets special treatment. This way, these two stubborn, iconoclastic rebels can work with each other and perhaps learn more about different ways of going about life. They have much to teach each other if they can get over their own insecurities.
