The Scorpius constellation is visible late at night in Spring and late at night in Summer
(23rd October - 22nd November)
Actually only few constellations resemble the subject that they represent. Among them, there is Scorpio asterism. Orion was hunting and met Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, and fell in love with her. He thought it would be easy to win her heart, but the goddess got angry and felt offended by his behavior. The goddess wanted to protect herself and reject Orion forever. So she threw a scorpion found in a garden to him and he died. Artemis regretted Orion's death and asked to Zeus to put him between the stars in the sky; Orion became the brightest star of the Scorpio constellation.
Scorpio is a water sign and is from the 23rd of October to the 22nd of November. It is ruled by Mars and is a fixed sign. Scorpio extended until the feet of Virgo sign in the ancient Greek zodiac, then it was split into two parts and the stars of the scorpion's claws were included in Libra constellation. The proximity of Virgo sign is indicated by the symbols of the two signs, which have the capital letter "M" in common, but it ends with a little arrow in the Scorpio symbol. The capital letter "M" represents death, suffering, wound. So the capital letter "M" with the arrow represents the return to the primordial state through death and suffering. Scorpio is the VIII zodiac sign, is located in the center of the autumn trimester, it is considered as the period of chaos, waiting for the next springy rebirth.
