Similarly one may ask, why is the Virgo symbol a woman?
Some people may ask, why is the Virgo symbol a woman? Well, the maiden stands for beauty, purity, and tranquility. Virgo translates to “virgin” in Latin and the maiden is symbolic of this translation — but not in a literal sense.
Besides, why are Virgos called virgins? On September 9, the new moon arrived in Virgo—the symbol of the woman and derived from the word virgin. … Virgo comes from Latin meaning “unwedded girl, maiden.” It wasn’t until around 1300 that it was used to denote a lack of sexual experience or imply chastity.
