Virgo’s symbol is the letter “M” with a loop at its end. There are various opinions that this letter represents “Maiden,” but Scorpio must also be associated with it.
What is the Virgo Sign?
The loop in the Virgo symbol represents chastity, whether it is interpreted as a woman’s crossed legs or as a closed loop where no impurities can enter.
In a completely different interpretation, Virgo Zodiac Sign is represented by three similar obstacles or paths, the third of which completes the circle and leads back to the starting point.
As depicted in the myth of Icarus, Virgo’s symbol represents the proverb “what goes around, comes around.”
Virgo’s Ruling Planet
The planet Mercury, the Roman god of communication, eloquence, travelers, boundaries, trickery, fortune, and thieves, rules the Zodiac Sign of Virgo.
Additionally, he guided souls to the underworld. Its counterpart in Greek mythology is Hermes, a messenger who moves swiftly between the mortal and divine realms.
Mercury’s symbol consists of a circle and a cross below it, like Venus’s, but with a crescent at the top.
Mind is represented by a crescent, spirit by a circle, and physical substance by a cross.
This sign represents the divine and physical natures of the mind (Gemini) (Virgo). The crescent’s “horns” are also associated with the Roman god Mercury’s winged headdress.
This god was also represented by a caduceus, a staff encircled by two snakes.
