Usage notes[edit]

⯓ is the most common astrological symbol for Pluto in English-language sources, and perhaps globally.[1] It was originally exclusively an astrological symbol, with only being used in astronomy (though often ♇ was found in astrology as well). However, since the 2006 reclassification of Pluto as a dwarf planet, ⯓ has seen use in astronomical sources.[2]
