This sign is ruled by the all powerful and seductive Scorpion. This is a sign of life, death, and resurrection. Always ready for anything, this sign’s history causes all to pause. There are several versions of the myth surrounding this sign. The first deals with Orion wanting to kill a bull (Taurus). Gaia prevented Orion from doing so by sending a scorpion to sting and kill him. The second myth centers again around Orion; this time he told Artemis and her mother Leto that he will kill all the animals on earth. In response, they send a scorpion to sting and kill Orion. Zeus then places both Orion and the scorpion in the sky in order to remind everyone there are consequences.
No matter which myth you believe, the moral is still the same. Excessive pride or jealousy can result in consequences. Those who discredit the small should beware; they can be just as mighty and deadly.
