Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 22)
Winter is well and truly upon us as Scorpio moves to prominence in the sky. There is little or no need to have to point out that the symbol for this sign is the legendary Scorpion.
The Greek legend goes that the hunter, Orion, was all powerful in his control of the land. He stated that he could take on and slay any beast in the land, and he proceeded to hunt down every animal. Unhappy with the killing, the god Artemis sent the giant scorpion to fight and beat Orion, which it did. That’s why when the constellation of Scorpio (or Scorpious as it is also known) rises to prominence, Orion fades away. That is the enduring power that this constellation still carries.
