Scorpio (♏︎) (Ancient Greek: Σκορπιός, romanized: Skorpiós, Latin for "scorpion") is the eighth astrological sign in the zodiac, originating from the constellation of Scorpius. It spans 210–240° ecliptic longitude. Under the tropical zodiac (most commonly used in Western astrology), the Sun transits this sign on average from October 23 to tướng November 21.[2] Depending on which zodiac system one uses, someone born under the influence of Scorpio may be called a Scorpio or a Scorpionic.[2]


Scorpio is one of the water signs, the others being Cancer and Pisces.[3] It is a fixed, negative sign.[4] According to tướng The Astrology Bible, Scorpio's colors are deep red, maroon, Black, and brown.[5]


According to tướng Greek mythology, its representation as a scorpion is related to tướng the Greek legend of Orion and how a scorpion stung him to tướng death (said to tướng be why Orion sets as Scorpius rises in the sky). Another Greek myth recounts how a scorpion caused the horses of the Sun to tướng bolt when they were being driven by the inexperienced youth Phaethon.[6]
