Latin words used:Scorpius:
scorpion, or literally translated as the creature with the burning sting. Also, the brightest constellation in the sky.Ad astra:
To the stars.
Orion was a mighty hunter who was slain by a giant scorpion summoned by Zeus when the other threatened to kill every animal on earth. For its service to the gods, the scorpion found a home in the stars. As a reminder of his prideful crime to every mortal who looks into a summer sky, he was put there as well. He hunts the summer skies, and the scorpion hunts him every winter.
Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto ( power/domination, destruction, death/rebirth).
I had fun taking on the aspects of this constellation, being a Scorpio myself.
