Plenty people and worldwide population who are working with astrology are seeing the words who discriminate the female as a sign. The main reason is that the sign is dеscribed as a male – like a Capricorn, Aries, Lion, Scorpio, or male are dеscribed as a female like in Aquarius, Pisces, Virgo.
That is a great problem now because astrology is becoming a very famous science and that kind of condition is making great problem for a boy or girl in a friends or company meetings when they are talking about what signs are they. Like if it a female Aries she is a sheep , if it is a female Capricorn she is a she-goat, if he is a Virgo he is a virgin and in my country the male is a joke by asking is you’re back hurts or your sitting OK. Especially in newspapers while you are writing astrology you must watch not to make grammatical error on the astrology page or the newspaper will be hit of the day. We have a lot of other gender problems with astrology signs. A gender symbol is a pictogram or glyph used to represent either biological sex or sociological gender (a terminological distinction originating in 1950s sociology) in either biology, medicine, genealogy or selective breeding, or in sociology, gender politics, LGBT subculture and identity politics.
Pictograms used to indicate male and female public toilets became widely used beginning in the 1960s, in The United Kingdom (England).
The shape of the Mars symbol has been likened to an iron-tipped spear (i.e. a weapon mainly used by men) and shape of the Venus symbol to a bronze mirror or a distaff (associated with women in the past). Also, we have problems in biology and medicine.
The two standard sex symbols are the Mars symbol ♂ (often considered to represent a shield and spear) for male and Venus symbol ♀ (often considered to represent a bronze mirror with a handle) for female, derived from astrological symbols, denoting the classical planets Mars and Venus, respectively. They were first used to denote the effective sex of plants (i.e. sex of individual in a given crossbreed, since most plants are hermaphroditic) by Carl Linnaeus in 1751.
They are still used in scientific publications to indicate the sex of an individual, for example of a patient.
Pedigree charts published in scientific papers now more commonly use a square for male and a circle for female.
