Scorpio, the eighth zodiac sign, is pretty serious—just like Scorpios themselves! People born under this sign are really focused on understanding others deeply.
They don’t waste time on small talk; they ask the important questions to uncover secrets. Scorpio is all about beginnings and endings, not afraid of either. They see the world in clear-cut ways, without much room for gray areas. Scorpios are incredibly curious, which is why they’re so good at investigating things. They love digging into stuff and figuring things out. Their strong intuition is a big help in this. The Scorpio constellation has roots in ancient Babylonian times, where it was called “the creature with the burning sting.” It holds the red star Antares, nicknamed “the rival of Mars” or “the heart of the Scorpion,” believed to have a strong Mars-like quality in astrology and magic.
In Greek stories, the Scorpion is linked to Orion’s demise. Orion, a boastful hunter, claimed he could conquer all wild animals. Upset by this, the earth goddess Gaia sent a Scorpion to halt him. They fought, and Orion was fatally stung. As a reward, Gaia placed the Scorpion among the stars, honoring its service, and Zeus honored Orion for his bravery.
