Etymology[edit]

A simplified caduceus (), due to confusion with the rod of Asclepius (⚕), which is the masculine equivalent of the traditional serpent symbol of the goddess Hygieia. (The original astronomical symbol was a snake and a star; Hygieia is often represented with snakes, and her symbol may be a snake or a snake drinking from a bowl.)

Symbol[edit]

  1. (astrology) A modern symbol for the asteroid 10 Hygiea. (The symbol has no history of use in astronomy.)
