Scorpio - The Scorpion

Scorpio - The Scorpion - 23 October - 21 November

A Feminine, Fixed Water sign.

Scorpio, the eighth, is shown as a scorpion, although it may have developed from a single drawing of a serpent, having a head, many coils and a tail. In the symbolic development of the sign, the serpent, the tempter from the Garden of Eden, was cut in two, the head became the symbol for Virgo. While the tail, became one of the symbols for Scorpio.

In Egypt the symbol was derived from the pictograph, in demotic script, for a snake, and by late Greek times closely resembled the modern symbol. The 16th century occultist, Agrippa, claimed that the modern symbol represented the sting of the scorpion. Scorpio is associated with passion. It is sometimes called 'the house of death'.

Characteristics
Scorpio is the Eigth sign of the zodiac, a fixed water sign. People born under this sign are the most intense and passionate of the signs. Though they appear calm and quite but their anger can burst anytime like a volcano. This ferocious anger often ends up making lifelong enemies. Scorpions are loyal as friend but a fanatic foe.They possess very strong intuitive power that helps them judge people. Scorpions also have immense degree of willpower and are highly tenacious, but are equally sensitive and therefore get easily moved by emotions of others.

Hawaiian Astrology
IKUWA - Scorpion Fish. In Hawaiian mythology, is depicted by the Scorpion fish, akin to the Scorpion in Greek mythology, a fixed water sign of a Governor or Inspector.
