The Picture of Roman Mosaic - Scorpio detail from the third century C.E is courtesy of Sacred Destinations from Flickr. It is kept at Rheinisches Landesmuseum in Bonn, which is one of the oldest museums in Germany. The Mosaic was found at Munster Sarnsheim near Bingen. The motif of the twelve signs is abundant in Roman art. Scorpio and the other entire signs of the zodiac surround the chariot of the Sun. Isn’t it amazing that after so many decades we still use the same astrological symbols?
The Scorpio painting is courtesy of Pinup Girl from Flickr. The Scorpio is half black half white. The black half has a white background and the white half has a black background. The idea behind the painting is that for those born between 24 October and 22 November there is no in-between: typical Scorpio has extreme views and moods

The Scorpio picture at a labyrinth Garden in Norfolk, England is courtesy of Leo Reynold from Flickr. Scorpio is the astrological sign of those who were born between 24 October and 22 November. Its color is dark red and it symbolizes death and rebirth. Its glyph is like the letter M with an arrow. All this information is condensed on this splendid work of art.
