The scorpion is a complex creature and a survivor. It’s hostile, defensive, cautious, and has a keen sense of its surroundings. Scorpions crawl on the ground, hide in dark corners, and, if threatened, strike out with their deadly tails. Additionally, scorpions have a magical “glow” when exposed to ultraviolet light. The sign of Scorpio has often been associated with magic and the protective attributes of the scorpion.
