scorpio anywhere in the birth chart can be intimidating in its intensity and depth, and the emotional moon is no simple placement for such a powerful sign. as a scorpio moon, you demand honest and deep connections, eschewing surface level relationships for rich and emotionally vulnerable ones based on shared truths. of course, as a water sign, you can seem cool to those who don’t reach this depth with you, appearing calm and collected on the surface as the waters beneath roil. you are a true power to behold when you allow yourself to invest in your emotional strengths.

the scorpio shawl is a deep almost-black blue, dark as the ocean depths and with a charming texture that may require a second look if you didn’t catch the light correctly the first time around.
