8H Moon- Selfish or just unbelievably guarded?
A friend of mine has a tendency for it. She has Capricorn Moon and Neptune in the 8th house, and is a Pisces with a stellium in Pisces. She is still a friend becsuse she has other good qualities I appreciate, but she can be exceedingly needy to the point of draining. There's something about her energy that is suffocating. The thing is she is stingy with her own emotional and energetic output though so the imbalance is something that gets to me having Libra.
You can be in more desperate or vulnerable times when you need extra help and support from others I don't think that constitutes vampirism. Psychic vampirism is born from a very core sense of lack and unawareness of that sense of lack. There is a lack of gratitude and an expectation or sense of entitlement to the energies of others instead.
I was going to mention unappreciativeness too. It can feel draining if you give to someone more than they give to you. Even then, youre in control of how much you give of yourself. Its really a boundary issue.
My hubby has an 8th house moon, with an Aries sun. I think he is very guarded with his emotions.
My brother is an 8H Virgo moon. He’s pretty open, not really guarded, and not at all a psychic vampire.
He’s a 7H Cancer sun, Mercury in Leo, maybe that all is something.
I have 8th house Virgo Moon, it trines my Taurus Venus/IC and sextiles my Scorpio Saturn/MC, no negative aspects.
Not particularly selfish but somewhat self absorbed and solitary. Not outwardly guarded but cautious, suspicious, cynical. Affinity for mystery, intrigue, vintage stuff, salvage, rescue.
