Scorpio    - 24. October - 22. November


In mythology, this is the scorpion that stung Orion the hunter to death, although accounts differ as to the exact circumstances. Eratosthenes offers two versions. Under his description of Scorpius he says that Orion tried to ravish Artemis, the hunting goddess,
and that she sent the scorpion to sting him, an account that is supported by Aratus. In a Greek fable, it is written that Orion boasted to Artemis and her mother Leto that he would kill every animal on the earth.

Characteristics:

Scorpios are magnetic, elusive and determined. They were born under the eighth sign of the zodiac which is referred to by astrologers as a fixed water sign. This star sign is probably one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. They are emotional beings and they take it to the limits. In fact they need overkill to feel really alive. There are definitely no half measures in your attitude to love. The cool aloofness is just the surface of their complex nature, and is by no means bad. Below the surface of their cool exterior is a scorching and passionate fire. This because the warlike Mars is ruling this sign.

Attributes:

Truthful, profound, will
