6.8 - Sun in Virgo and Moon in Scorpio

The Moon is in Scorpio from 18:46 GMT, 1 September 2011 to 21:03 GMT, 3 September 2011, marking the obscure transit of the Moon into the realm of deep emotional experiences, the crucial zone of the production, assimilation and release of grievances (Graha).

This is the combination 6.8, which is a blend of mutable Earth and fixed Water. Here the Virgo’s multi-dimensional intestine functions are at their peak. The most stagnant waste materials are retrieved and moved along the intestine through rhythmic dancing contractions of the intestinal muscles (peristalsis).

The pattern Sun in Virgo and Moon in Scorpio (6.8) mixes Virgo’s efficiency, purification, selection and service with Scorpio’s intensity, intimacy, passion, release and power. 

This is part of the guidance I received related to 6.8:

"This is a space of major healing. It involves letting go darkness and receiving light. It is about shifting the attention from darkness to light. When darkness comes, that’s very well, for it shows that the material of exchange is available. At this stage all that is required it to exchange darkness with light, feeling totally entitled to do so. Remember that this exchange is your Function: what you are supposed to do here, your true mission in life. Then do it!"

Since 6.8 is my natal binary, for matters of Virgo objectivity, I am not going to comment further and I will refer to another source and quote from © Michael McClain 1996-2003.

“The combination of Sun in Virgo and Moon in Scorpio produces one that looks and acts like an intellectual, but with an emotional nature that is truly the driving force. This is perhaps the most emotional of the quiet Virgo breed. The quick mind and common sense that is so notable in all with Virgo Sun, is charged with an intense rashness and impulsiveness common to Scorpio. Your ability to reason and rationalize is well developed, but you often seem almost incapable of believing what is foreign to your internal emotional bias. Thus, you become very partisan in whatever causes or ideas light you fire. These you may rationalize and try to give intellectual status, but you usually color judgments with intuition rather than logic. You are facile at thinking up reasons why your ideas are right and always persuasive at putting them across. At times you appear near genius, and at other times, way off base. You are often to be found among the theoretical and radical thinkers, able to prove nearly anything on paper with diagrams to show how it should work. Whether it really will or not in real life may be another thing. Your intellectual powers are strong, but you're often less than realistic. You have a certain zeal that makes it hard for you to remain still and listen to what others have to say, and you can be dominating in your approach to group endeavours. Underneath, you have a somewhat brooding personality that is forever probing, turning over stones and delving for ideas with which you can either feel affinity or enmity. In business you are likely to be successful and valuable to your employer because you do possess powerful leadership qualities. In this environment you seem to become more objective and less emotional. Nonetheless, learning to restrain the natural tendencies of this configuration will make life and relationships much easier.”
