The Eternal Fight and a Venomous Tail

As with every Zodiac sign, a story comes to light about why this pattern of dots in the night sky gets special treatment. It’s not just because the sun passes along this particular stretch of sky and the constellations just happen to be in it, except that is totally how you get your zodiac sign, it’s because the patterns we see now were seen hundreds and thousands of years ago and needed to be explained. So, the myths from the gods and goddesses of the Greek pantheon are the ones that get told to use the most and get put up to explain the sky. 



Artemis, goddess of the moon and the hunt, loved to practice with her bow. She would ensure that those that hunted paid their respects due to the lives that were taken. But there was someone she would meet with that earned her respect until one moment when it all fell apart. Orion, son of Poseidon, had been through many challenges. After making drunken advances to a princess, he was blinded and sent off on his own. He found his way to Hephestus and was aided by the god of the forge to make it to Helios where his sight was returned. Once he was able to see again, he found his way to Artemis. Joining her on a few hunts, he finally met with her mother, Leto and on that day, he said words that would seal his fate. 



Orion proclaimed he could kill any creature on Earth. Gaia, the Earth, was angered by the man’s boastful claim and sent the giant scorpion Scorpius to kill the hunter. The pair engaged in a fight and with the scorpion’s venomous tail and Orion’s club and dagger, they each dealt horrible and lethal blows. Artemis pleaded for Orion to be placed in the stars to be remembered but Zeus had to add Scorpius into the sky as well for how valiantly it fought. Zeus knew that placing the two in the sky would lead to an eternal battle so he separated them so they are visible at opposite times of the year: Orion in the night sky during winter and Scorpius in the night sky during summer.



Being the eighth sign of the zodiac, Scorpio is the second water sign. The colors of Scorpio are red and black and the sign is ruled by Pluto and Mars. For this natural soap, Scorpio is black and green, colored with ethical micas and activated charcoal. Placed on top of the soap is rare labradorite, flashing colors that normally wouldn’t be seen in the stone. The scorpion is known to fluoresce under ultraviolet light, allowing the labradorite to connect to the odd phenomenon. This soap embodies the essence of Scorpio with the fragrance of Anarchy. The patchouli, vanilla, and black pepper fragrances mix together to make a spicy and sweet fragrance. The main scent of patchouli is sweetened by vanilla, as the black pepper gives a bit of a peppery kick. This sexy fragrance embodies the seductive nature of the Scorpio astrological sign. 

To grab your own bar of this wonderful soap, you can buy it here. Along with this beautiful soap, you can grab wax melts to have your home smell like Scorpio. You don’t have to be a Scorpio to buy this soap, you can just go with the flow as the water Scorpio represents.
