Scorpio, The Scorpion

The eighth sign of the zodiac, represented by the Scorpion, a poison creature who can paralyze its victims with a sting of its tail.

The symbol is a hateful and dangerous insect.

The myth begins with a death of a beautiful young giant, Orion, and a great hunter who was a son of Neptune ( God of the sea). Tales of Orion’s prowess, strength, and manliness are legend.
