Was Judas iscariot a Scorpio?
It is impossible to tell.
There is little information about Judas Iscariot in the Bible, but he was the son of Simon Iscariot. (John 6:71) The name 'Iscariot' is believed by many to suggest that they were from the town of Kerioth-hezron . If this is true, Judas was the only one of the 12 apostles from Judea. The rest were from Galilee.
Judas Iscariot was a Jew, and it most unusual for a Jew of the first century to have a surname (Iscariot), although it was common among Romans and Greeks. John Shelby Spong (Jesus for the NonReligious) points out that Judas is a variant of Judah, highlighting that the man who betrayed Jesus was a Jew. Iscariot seems to be based on sicarii, a Latin word for 'assassin'. Spong believes the character Judas Iscariot is…
Yes, two of the apostles were named Judas. One apostle known as Judas Iscariot who was the traitor and the other Judas was the son of James (Luke 6:16) and also called Thaddaeus (Mark 3:18).

No, Judas Iscariot was not a Roman soldier. However, the name 'Iscariot' could have been a derivative of the Latin (Roman) word Sicarius, which means 'assassin'. Of course, this would be a most improbable coincidence unless we had reason to believe that Judas Iscariot was a literary invention, rather than a real person.
A: John Shelby Spong (Jesus for the NonReligious) says that the name Judas is a variant of Judah, implying Jewish guilt, and that the name Iscariot seems to be based on 'sicarii', suggesting Judas was a traitor. In Spong's view, Judas Iscariot is probably a literary creation. A: Judas is actually the Greek form of Judah.
The only information the Bible shares about Judas is that he was the son of Simon Iscariot (John 6:71) The term "Iscariot" indicates that they may have come from the Judean town of Kerioth-hezron. If so, then Judas was the only Judean among the 12 apostles, the rest being Galileans. But there's no definite mention of his tribe.
Nothing certain is known about Judas Iscariot other than what is in the New Testament. The gospels say that he was chosen to be a disciple of Jesus. The Gospel of John says that he was given the bag containing the communal money. Then all the gospels agree that he went to the priests to betray Jesus in return for money.
