Why Scorpio?

[Post New]by 1457051 on Apr 7, 18 10:23 PM
Weird question, but why do they use a Scorpio symbol out of all the zodiac signs?
I would think it would be Pisces.

Am I the only one that has wondered this?

WHY USE ANY OF THEM. THERE ARE MANY OTHER THINGS IN THE WORLD THEY COULD USE.

I think they used Scorpio because it is so close to scorpion, which is another HOS item. Scorpio can be confused with scorpion if you look at the written list of items to find. I know it's happened to me.

Maybe because it is easy to click between the symbol parts, making it just that much more difficult.

I think you may be right. I noticed that I do the same thing with that one and others if I don't pay attention.

Correct; however, it is easy to confuse the words "Scorpio" and "scorpion" in the written list of items and make you wonder which one they are looking for. Also, since when do scorpions hang around dark, dank castles?

It's the same thing with "bow" for me, too. Bow as in bow and arrow or bow as in a ribbon. LOL! I finally stopped looking at the list some time back because I recognize the HOS items as a search.

Just curious ……
Why would you think Pisces would be more appropriate? Out of 12 possible signs? Is there some correlation in the Castle I've missed? For 3 years???

But at least they call a violin bow a fiddle stick or we would have another thing to guess about.
