In Greek mythology, you may find two opposite stories of Orion’s significance. The first version of this myth is the one in which Orion was described as the extremely high and beautiful mythical hunter, killed by a scorpion that was sent by goddess Artemis to prevent animal extinction. That was his punishment for wanting to kill all the animals on Earth. The second version of this story says that it was the Goddess of Earth who sent the Scorpio to kill him and prevent him from killing any more animals on the planet. Later on, these two were placed on the sky opposite each other, but the Orion won’t rise before the Scorpio goes down.
There is one more popular version of this myth – the story follows young Artemis, Goddess of the hunt who fell in love with Orion and wanted to marry him and serve him as her wife. Her brother didn’t approve of her wish and to prevent this from happening he planned a scheme for the lovers. The scheme was that he tricked Artemis to shoot at something, that happens to be Orion. She was devastated once she saw that her lover is now dead by her hands, and wanted to pay respect to him by placing him among the stars.
