A historical / etymological note: The term "virgo" in Latin indicated an unmarried woman, free and self-sufficient, which is not. She had nothing to do with her innocence, but as with the masculine term "vir" meant a free adult. The mother goddesses were therefore called "virgins", but they were sexually free women, as well as economically, equal and equal to men. Graphically, the sign of the Virgin was a woman seated in profile, but it seems that with the advent of Christianity, the glyph will turn into an M with the final rod folded inside to symbolize Mary and her virginity, or, in in line with the characteristics of the sign, the cold lucidity of Reason which begins to harness instincts and passions (which however are strong and strongly repressed and restrained).
