These two constellations were named after figures in Greek mythology, the scorpion and and the giant hunter, Orion – the scorpion was sent by the gods as the downfall of Orion for his prideful ways – although there are are variances in the story as to how Orion was killed, both the scorpion and Orion were raised into the sky – but never were to be there at the same time.
The astronomical reason is just that the stars that constitute Orion are in a part of the sky that is only visible when the part of the sky containing Scorpio’s stars is on the other side of the earth.
