Self-care Scorpio

How we take care of ourselves later in life, is distinguished by the way we grow up. However, each Moon Sign evokes different conduct from his peers by communicating his needs non-verbally. In the case of Scorpio Moons, for example, the most significant need is maintaining control. Depending on how the needs were met during childhood, each sign develops either constructively or destructively. To develop a healthy way of self-care, you first have to distinguish where your anxieties and survival techniques come from – so you can overcome them. Thus, you have to take a look at your childhood by reading the following article.

What does the Scorpio Moon child evoke?

Control-striving Scorpio - painted by Nastja Stefanyuk

Scorpio is an intense child who has x-ray vision from an early age. Thus, he quickly learns that grown-ups tend to be dishonest. Also, he instinctively knows what people are capable of. Thus, he mostly claims control to overcome his suspicious insecurity. Also, he needs to feel a strong commitment as compensation for the world he perceives as untrustworthy and thus, overpowering. Because of his sussing personality, the world to him is a battlefield, where people manipulate to regain power. Thus, in order of maintaining power himself he is constantly fighting to regain power through his intensity. 

How does the Scorpio Moon Child educate his mother?

A Scorpio child quickly teaches his mother to transfer control to her child since a Scorpio Moon child reacts vengefully and profoundly emotional to any act of control on his parent’s behalf. Still, a Scorpio Moon usually perceives his parents as controlling since he has a selective perception – when it comes to the display of power. 

Negligence of the needs: 

Commitment, Emotional security, and Comfort

When the need for control is fulfilled at the expense of commitment and emotional security, the need for control grows into infinity. That’s because Scorpio then needs even more control to compensate for the lack of emotional security. The lack of commitment, then, makes him grow into an utterly jealous and possessive person, who is constantly fearing betrayal from his loved ones. 

Negligence of the needs: 

Autonomy, and Control

When parents are strict (or even abusive), the Scorpio Moon child feels captivated and overpowered. That’s because everything endangering Scorpio’s sense of control as a child leads to a sense of helplessness. Then Scorpio overcompensates to regain power through different strategies.

Survival strategies:

  1. Aggression so he can regain control
  2. Imperiousness so he can stay in the position of power
  3. Manipulation 
  4. Scheming
  5. Vengefulness
  6. Hate
