Symbool Mercurius AstronomieThis sign symbolizes the Roman god Mercury and the planet Mercury (named after the Roman god). The symbol can be explained as a winged helmet above a staff.

Besides the planet and the Roman god, Mercury also represents the metal Mercury. In astrology Mercury represents curiousity, diplomacy and craftiness. Although the symbol stands for the Roman god Mercury, the symbol probably originates from ancient Greece,  just after Christ (AD).
