This section includes both male and female gender symbols. The male sign (a circle with a arrow sticking out and to the right) comes from the symbol of Mars, formed by rotating the Venus symbol 135 degrees. Cross was later changed to an arrow making it resemble a shield and spear. The female sign (a circle with a cross on the bottom) comes from the symbol of Venus, a hand mirror symbolising beauty.
