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.
Scorpius is one of the constellations of the zodiac and is located in the Southern celestial hemisphere. Its name is Latin for scorpion, and its symbol is Scorpio.
