If confronted by a scorpion, the

eye is drawn to the sting and the

claws are forgotten until they

nip you, painfully.

So Mythistory lost track of

one end of a big beast by being

fixated on the other, inventing some

guff to placate Venus—

scales or something?— that

ignored the danger

immanent in the stars whose

names spelt out the trap:

Zubenelgenubi—Southern Claw;

Zubeneschamali—Northern Claw;

Zubenelakrab—Scorpion’s Claw;

all neatly tightening about your neck.

So drop nice notions of balance and

equanimity and peace to all men because

claws close and when they do they

sting as deeply as the tail.
