This arachnid, with its dangerous venomous sting, has for obvious reasons long been associated symbolically with deadly menace, but also with veracity. A king of ancient Egypt, ruling before Menes united the country and formed the first dynasty, was named Scorpion (Selek), and the feminine form of the word (Selket) named the patroness of magical healers. Ancient incantations to ward off stinging reptiles express the hope that divine magic will be stronger than any poison. The goddess Isis (Eset), fleeing from Seth (Sutech), the slayer of Osiris (Usire), took SEVEN scorpions with her. According to the astral mythology of ancient Greece, Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, sent Scorpius to kill the mighty hunter Orion, and they were both translated to the sky. This is why, whenever (the constellation) Scorpius appears in the eastern sky, the otherwise undaunted Orion flees below the horizon. In the Bible the scorpion, like the serpent (see SNAKE), symbolizes demonic powers and is mentioned in the Book of Revelation in this function among the creatures of HELL. Dangerous sects are also likened to scorpions, but they also appear as symbols of logic and dialectic in depictions of the seven liberal arts (see LADDER). In medieval art the scorpion also symbolized the continent of Africa. In the religion of the Mayas the black god of war Ek-Chuah was portrayed with the tail of a scorpion. In ASTROLOGY Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, through which the sun moves from October 23 until November 21. Its principal star is the reddish Antares (the anti-MARS) the sign is governed by the planet Mars (color: RED metal: IRON). Traditionally Scorpio has been associated with male sexuality, destruction, the occult, the mystical, illumination-and, to offset the arachnid's venom (as in ancient Egypt), healing and resurrection. In this way even a potentially dangerous sign is understood as ambivalent: a source of change, a symbol of the triumph of life over death.
