Since the zodiac constellations were first cataloged by astronomers in ancient Greece, many of the stories that are associated with them come their mythology.
Orion, the legendary hunter of Greek mythology, once bragged to the Atermis, the goddess of the hunt and the moon, that he was skilled enough to kill all the creatures on earth. Although she was a huntress herself, and a very skilled one at that, she also was very protective of her creatures, and was appalled at Orion’s boasting. She and her mother, Leto, instructed a scorpion to battle with Orion. During that battle, the scorpion killed Orion - and the match was so entertaining to the gods, that Zeus chose to reward and honor the scorpion by placing it in the heavens as the constellation Scorpio. Later on, Atermis pleaded with Zeus to also include Orion into the heavens as well, as a reminder that pride can be humanity’s downfall.
Another legend tells of the sun god Helios and his son, Phaeton. Helios had promised Phaeton that he would grant one wish, and Phaeton chose to ride his father’s chariot for one day. This chariot carried the sun every day across the sky, and Helios thought it was too much for his son to handle, but acquiesced only because he made a promise. When Phaeton rode the chariot, he lost control of the horses; first he flew so high that the earth turned frigid and cold. The celestial scorpion readied its stinger as he flew ever higher, and so he quickly went downwards, so much so that he created fires that spread over the earth. In the end, Zeus had to strike Phaeton down with a thunderbolt to end the ravaging of the earth.
