The Scorpio: secretive, passionate, elusive, associated with tarot card 'Death' and a pack of not so very sweet totem animals including snake, phoenix and vulture. All in all a sign that's hard to warm up to. Even if it's your own. Which in this case it is. Luckily it's not all bad: We' are also supposedly resourceful and decisive, and will research until we find the truth. I'm guessing Pitbull might have been a good totem animal to add to the list.'
The Mythological backstory of the constellation has to do with the Scorpion that killed Orion, either sent by Greek deity Artemis because she didn´t like Orion, or by her brother Apollo because she liked him a bit too much. Lovely. - You should definitely check out mythological stories by the way, I'm pretty sure all modern day soap opera's are based on them.
