Heres a tip - since the scorpion can do so much damage (esp. on Titan/Hard mode) -
if you get into trouble and are running low on health - especially during the phase where you are hitting the legs....
got the corner opposite the big scorpion - and grapple/grab the little ones for green orbs - staying as far as you can from the big scoprion - you should get an unlimited supply of the little ones and be able to fill up the meter without getting hit

Use the cleatus (the ones u get from beating hercules) weapons to take out ice legs after 2 or 3 scorpion will fall, goto the head and pound away..rinse and repeat a couple times!

Bad news glitch can happen when the circle won't come on his head and he will be stuck laying on ground. Easy 1000 hit combat is good news. Bad news bad news you have to start over. just saying

I believe most people are having trouble dodging her tail slam when trying to take out her hind legs. Equip the cestus, and make sure you know how to do the no cool-down dodge trick (press the right analog stick at the direction you want to dodge to,hold it, and tap square). Use the L1+Square (air) combo to take out the legs quickly. Here is the tricky part, as soon as you see the camera zooming out, immediately stop your combo and perform the unlimited dodge (or air dash if you just happen to be in the air, then unlimited dodge once you land) all the way to the corner of the arena just to be safe, then quickly use the air dash (X+right analog forward) or no cool-down dodge forward to close in again once the slam ends. Be sure to knock out her scorpion spawns before attempting this, although it is not necessary, they could block your dodging path if you let her breed 6 of them.
Other things to remember:
1. Do not kill scorpion spawns DIRECTLY in front of her! Although this fight might seem to rely on how well you utilize corners of the arena, avoid fighting at the corner where you can see her whole face. If you are too far in front of her, she will use her very difficult to dodge stinger to take a stab at you, too close and she will bump you with her claws, and uses her pincers if you stay too long in the middle of arena.
2. If you found the no cool-down dodge too hard to use, substitute it with the air dash, it is slower since you have to jump first, but a lot easier to control. You can also equip your nemesis whip for dodging purposes, since the whip provides the shortest cool-down out of all the weapon dodges, but covers a lot less distance compare to the other two methods, making timing crucial.

Use the Cestus, almost exclusively. At the start of the battle, use it to destroy her legs. When she starts to use her tail slam, just time it right and use the Nemean Roar - you're invincible during the magic animation. Try to aim it toward the oncoming Scorpions and you'll kill two birds with one stone.
When she leaves to circle the block, get to the center of the arena. As the Scorpions close in on you, charge the blast from Helios' Head - release it at the last possible moment. By this time she'll have circled the block, and will use Boreas' Ice Storm, blowing them all into the corner (still blind), use one shot from the Bow of Apollo to light them all on fire, then blast 'em with a Plume of Prometheus or two, and they should mostly go up in smoke, leaving you to deal with the big one relatively unopposed.
