Scorpio 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 area on average from October 23 to November 22. Under the sidereal zodiac (most commonly used in Hindu astrology), the Sun is in Scorpio from approximately November 16 to December 15. Depending on which zodiac system one uses, an individual born under the influence of Scorpio may be called a Scorpio or a Scorpion.
Scorpio is one of the three water signs, the others being Cancer and Pisces. It is a fixed, negative sign. In ancient times, Scorpio was associated with the planet Mars. After Pluto was discovered in 1930, it became associated with Scorpio instead. Scorpio is associated with three different animals: the scorpion, the snake, and the eagle (or phoenix). The snake and eagle are related to the nearby constellations of Ophiuchus and Aquila. Scorpio is also associated with the Greek deity Artemis, who is said to have created the constellation Scorpius. Scorpio's colors are deep red, maroon, brown, and black.
Scorpio is also associated with Sunset Siege, the 14th place entry in Make a Good Mega Man Level. It is the only zodiac sign to have submitted a level to the MaGMML series; Cancer was supposed to submit a level before it was eliminated from existence by Roahm Mythril's laugh, and Taurus instead chose to devote its time to its appearance in Skullman in: Scooby Doc 4: The Destroyer (featuring Atsushi Onita).
