♏ (The legs and tail of a scorpion)
The eighth astrological sign in the Zodiac, the constellation Scorpius is first named in ancient Babylonian with symbols that literally translate to “the creature with the burning sting”. In ancient Greek mythology, the stories of Scorpio invariably reference Orion as well: Orion boasted to the goddess Artemis that he would slay every animal on Earth, and while Artemis was a huntress herself, she offered protection to all creatures and sent a giant scorpion to stop him. Scorpio eventually killed Orion, but the battle caught the attention of Zeus, who raised both the scorpion and Orion to heaven as a reminder for mortals to curb their hubris. This is why every winter Orion hunts in the sky, but every summer he flees as the constellation of the scorpion begins to appear.
Scorpios are passionate and possess a strong will, but they remain a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma waiting to be solved. As a result, they are oftentimes misunderstood. They are known for their intense emotions and extreme opinions. Scorpios are brave enough to fight for what’s theirs and protective of what they already have.
They achieve things when they work independently. Scorpios have the skills to lead, but at the same time to follow. They have magnetic personalities that draw people to them. They easily adapt to change and are resilient. They do not stop at mediocrity as they continually transform and reinvent themselves as they strive toward self-improvement.
On the flip side, however, Scorpios can be obsessive and possessive! They are unforgiving of faults in others and when someone wrongs them, they seek revenge. Scorpios are easily moved to fierce anger which often leads to destructive speech or actions. They also have the tendency to discard friends too easily.
Scorpios are extremely jealous partners! They like to have their partner’s attention at all times. Despite their powerful personalities, Scorpios are very passionate. Due to their secretive nature, they like to keep their relationships private. Scorpios’ emotions are deep, intense, and can be difficult for their partners to handle.
