Scorpion Symbolism. . .

The symbolism of the Scorpion is wrapped up in it's ability to focus on it's power, this is the Scorpions special  gift.   Scorpions magic is the magic of "defense".  We all have to protect ourselves from threats. Many times we do not notice threats, but the scorpion was born to protect itself from invasion naturally.

Scorpion Meaning

Anticipating your Environment. . .

The scorpion as stated above generally means self defense, or protection of the self. It is unique in the way it goes about dealing with threats. While it has its stinger held high, it shifts left to right not allowing its adversary an inch to attack, always keeping his stinger front and center.

The essence of the scorpion is like a ninja cloaked in black anticipating the every move of its adversary. The swaying of the tail is like the tai chi movements of the zen warrior. It is silent in its approach, striking quickly and decisively.

This is the precision you are seeking, and the armor you require, to master your foes.


Scorpion Spirit Animal and calling upon protection. . .

As a spirit animal the scorpion can be called upon to protect you from threats, and to always be guarding your flank, and blind spots. It will keep an eye on your surroundings for you and make you aware of incoming invaders.

In this way, the scorpion is the spirit animal to guide you and empower you to a new sense of personal freedom knowing that you are ready and equipped to protect yourself at all times.


Scorpion Symbolism, illumination and the warrior spirit. . . 

The symbol of the scorpion is its stinger. Like the sword in the hand of the warrior, the scorpion wields its stinger, with the poison that paralyzes its prey.

Just like the strike of a scorpion an epiphany can strike from out of nowhere, when you are listening to your surroundings.
