31. Scorpio

31. Scorpio

Scorpio (Scorpion) is the eighth Sign of the Zodiac. Not large but a brilliant constellation. Can be seen in Europe only in June and July owing to its low altitude. Bounded on the West by Libra, on the East by Sagittarius, on the North by Serpens, and on the South by Lupus and Ara. Most prominent star is Antares, known also as Cor Scorpii (Heart of Scorpion), its diameter being over 400 times as large as that of our Sun, but its density very small. Ancient astrologers deemed Scorpio accursed - a source of war, discord and universal evil.
