The scorpion in Ancient Egypt

I was reading somethings about the subject , and I found this website.

One part that was interesting:

I am quoting the text, so it is using Isis , not Aset.

However, there were other gods and goddesses also associated with the scorpion. One of the most famous is Isis, who is said to have been protected from her enemies by seven scorpions. Isis herself may have at times been depicted in scorpion form, though this is not clear. Interestingly, it is not Serket, but rather Isis who is more frequently mentioned in many magical spells for scorpion stings.

This is the website
