Mythology of the Scorpio
The Scorpion was another monster summoned at the will of a wrathful goddess. Instead of Hera, though, it was Artemis, who called upon the creature to destroy Orion.
Orion was not a human, but a giant. As such, he was more than mortal, but less than a god or goddess. He was the son of Poseidon, the sea god, and is often supposed to be the son of Gaia, as were all giants. Orion was prodigiously strong and very beautiful, but he shared the fatal flaw of many traditional Greek heroes: He thought much too highly of himself and forgot to show proper respect toward the immortals.
It is not clear what Orion did to anger Artemis. According to one version, he tried to rape one of her handmaidens. According to another, he may have tried to force himself on Artemis herself. Perhaps he simply boasted that he was a better archer than she was. Of all the goddesses, however, Artemis may have been the worst one to cross. She was the goddess of the hunt and the goddess of revenge, and she was ruthless and violent once angered.
She became furious with Orion's impudence and commanded a giant scorpion to attack him. The scorpion stung Orion and killed him. Artemis placed her servant in the heavens as a reward for doing her bidding. Because of Orion's parentage, he could not go to Hades. He was placed in the heavens as well, where he continues to flee across the night sky, away from the poisonous scorpion.
The symbol for Scorpio is the scorpion. This creature was chosen because it typifies many of the characteristics of this sign. The scorpio person is not necessarily aggressive on its own, unless provoked and in general would rather be contemplative. They crave alone time and often become extremely annoyed when they don’t get it. Scorpio people are great secret keepers and feel each emotion more intensely than other signs. Perhaps because of this they are able to be quite discerning when assisting people with their problems. They are able to cut to the bottom line and show others the best and the worst in their lives.
Scorpio signs are not fearful individuals, often trying things that others would not attempt. This is because they most often become self-aware at an earlier age than most other signs. This also gives them a custodial feel toward other signs and they have an inflamed sense of justice when it comes to standing up for those who lack that ability. Scorpio signs are very interested in what makes people tick on the inside and are often in fields that allow them to discover things about the internal workings of others.
Scorpios are fiercely independent. They are able to accomplish anything they put their mind to and they won't give up. They are perfectly suited to being on their own. They are not social butterflies like some other zodiac signs and some actually prefer to live on their own that way there is never any issue of who controls what at home, they like to be in control.
Upside: Scorpio exhibit extreme self-control in many areas, and as a result expect that of those around them. They are disciplined, protective and are very interested in others. They give of themselves but do expect the same in return. Scorpio males and females both need to be the leaders, and excel at problem solving and troubleshooting projects and situations.
Downside: Scorpio invented the term ‘vendetta’. Once a Scorpio is crossed, they don’t forget it. Female Scorpio are worse about this than they others, often going decades without making amends with friends and family. Scorpio also tend to be pessimistic, often seeing threats where there aren’t any, which can make them suspicious, stubborn and paranoid without cause.
