Virgo Sun, Scorpio Moon: Tears of Blood
“And you wanted to dance, so I asked you to dance, but fear is in your soul.” – Save A Prayer by Duran Duran
Hermes (Mercury), the ruler of Virgo, was the emissary and messenger of the gods. He is described as moving freely between the worlds of the mortal and divine, and was the conductor of souls into the afterlife. Upon death, a soul was led by Mercury near the entrance of the underworld, where the ferry awaited to carry it across the Acheron.
With the Virgo Sun-Scorpio Moon combo, Mercury is granted permanent residence in the underworld. No longer able to access the divine realm of the gods above, he spends his days forever guiding souls into the afterlife. Therefore, a mind preoccupied with death, and a mind that is keenly aware of the spirit world, is to be expected of this individual. The intellectualism of the Virgo is diminished in the face of Pluto, and takes on a much more raw and instinctual hidden nature. The Mercurian logic of someone with a Scorpio Moon operates on a darker and deeper level. Their intense analytical skills are top-notch – basically born detectives. Like a lonewolf on a hunt the individual does not follow the pack but rather prefers to hunt alone, and often ends up being the first to catch the scent of fresh blood even from miles away – that’s how perceptive they are, and how swiftly their minds work.
Although this combination can be emotionally challenging, it is umatched for the Virgo Sun-Scorpio Moon is an excellent natural psychologist. Trying to fool one with this placement would prove to be a difficult, almost impossible, task.
Due to the association with the 6th and 8th houses of the Virgo and Scorpio, this combination skips the 7th house, taking the meaning of care and service (6th) straight to the depths (8th) in relationships. In terms of spirituality, they are the medicine men and women, the occult healers, the ones that will worship their eternal bond with you.
