Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Yeah, being associated with a Scorpion sounds cool and threatening, but are you even slightly cool and threatening in real life? Nah, you’re more bark than bite, which makes you a dog. All that Scorpio toughness makes you a Chihuahua.

Leo

Leo July 23 - August 22) Why bother arguing here? You're a Lion, you own it, you know it, and we all agree. There is no other animal for you unless it's a mini Lion, or a cartoon Lion, or Lion figurine. It doesn't matter. You roar, we cringe and back off, no matter...

Gemini

Gemini (May 21 - June 20) That whole "twins" thing is cool when it's there to describe your two-sided nature, but if we had to pinpoint your spirit animal, it would have to be a minnow, or, maybe a sardine. You're the anchovy of the zodiac: little, stinky, and...

Taurus

Taurus (April 20 - May 20) You're a bull, so they say, but the reality is, you're a dog. You are affectionate, playful, goofy, and stubborn as heck. You've got loyalty down to a science, and you love a good bowl of chow. Taurus Taurus (♉︎) (Latin for bull; from the...

Aries

Aries (March 21 - April 19) They call you a ram and that may be all well and good, but you Aries types, you know you're just big ol' wildcats. You're smart, cunning, lazy, and, on occasion, you love to knock stuff off a table. When you walk into a room, people become...

Pisces (February 19 - March 10) If there's one animal that could represent the piece of work that you are, Pisces, it would have to be a squirrel. You're fastidious, quick, and selfish. You hoard until there's nothing left, and you glut yourself until you pop. You are...

Scorpio Cultural significance

The meaning behind the zodiac sign Scorpio is based on the Greek myth of Orion, the son of Posiedon and Euriale, who after enraging the Goddess Artemis (Goddess of Hunting) is punished by the Gods. Legend has it that Artemis, having fallen in love with the handsome and gifted huntsman, invites him to join her in a hunt. Orion, known for his rough nature and lack of control, misunderstands the Goddess’ intentions and attempts to rape her, thereby incurring the wrath of the gods with this act of sacrilege. In another version of the legend, he dares to boast of his hunting skills by arrogantly showing Artemis the hundreds of trophies of his kills.

As a reward for being a staunch ally of the Gods, the scorpion was immortalized in a constellation

In both versions of the story, the Gods decided to punish him – a scorpion is sent to do battle with him and eventually kills him with its poisonous sting. A staunch ally of the Gods, the scorpion in immortalized in a constellation. Orion is also transformed into a constellation by Artemis and is placed head to head with that of his arch enemy, so the two are forever locked in battle.
