Uranus/Herschel (Platinum)

Astrological symbol of the planet Uranus. Unlike the traditional symbols for the planets, this one is a recent creation.

As the ancient Uranus was a sky god, the symbol combines the sigils of Mars and the sun. The glyph is also the alchemical symbol for platinum.

The astronomical symbol for the planet remembers the originally proposed name (after its discoverer), Herschel:
