You're a bit possessive today, and while this expression isn't your 'usual,' the Moon in Scorpio brings your desire to control matters that affect you. Scorpio rules your relationship sector so you may feel territorial about a partner, business situation or arrangement. Jealousy is a trait that does not always look good on you, so be careful not to let it become an all-consuming thought.
