Scorpions are a symbol of death, rebirth, transmutation, repelling negativity, sex, control, transition, passion, treachery, protection, defensiveness, being alone. The strongest message of the scorpion is one associated with protection and/or isolation. Scorpions themselves are solitary creatures who tend to have brief flashes of passion and then spending years alone. When the scorpions do mate it is in a display of exotic dance, which is one of beauty, control and calculation. The female carries her offspring until they shed their first exoskeleton and then they go out into the big world for their own solitary lives. Another brief and intense burst of intimacy followed by isolation.
