Rounded Geometric Planetary SymbolsSep 22nd, 2016
|Category:||Signs & symbols, Culture & communities|
This set contains modernized versions of the classical astrological symbols for the planets of our solar system. They are also used in astronomy, but their use in journal publications is disparaged by the International Astronomical Union. Also included are the symbols of recent non-planet Pluto, the asteroid Ceres, our Moon, and the Sun.
Three of the heavenly bodies come in two different variants: Earth can be represented using either the geocentric sun cross or the Globus cruciger Uranus comes in two flavours ,) one is a monogram of the discoverer's last name Herschel, the other is a combination of the Mars and Sun symbols that plays nicer with the rest of the set Pluto, also comes in a simple monogram for Pluto and Percival Lowell, or a symbol that represents Pluto's Cap of invisibility. I think that the second works better with the rest of the icons.
