    I have never seen it before , but the cross with the crescent moon could probably apply to anything. Where did you find it?

    I have not actually seen the cross and crescent in this arrangement. But the symbols separately usually have these meanings.

    The cross represents the material, imperfect and mortal; that which is divided and in the dark. The figure shows the intersection between two broken lines which mark the position of the planets in their orbit, sphere or fields, which are separated from the Lights, the divine and semi-divine. The lines are constructed in a normal. The intersection gives coordinates which define time and place, hence the structure of the material world. This is the measure of that which is the case, natural or normal, although only in a broken, separated and illusive manner.

    The figure has its four sensitive extensions at the outer points of the cross. There are five planets. Man has five senses to observe and experience the natural world. The cross also reminds of something with a root but extending beyond. Our body has five outer-points or extensions (head, two arms and two legs), five fingers and five toes. The construction symbolizes a presence, a place of meeting or touching.

    The cross falls together towards a center of gravity which gathers together the four elements; fire, earth, air and water. The arms of the cross describe the four corners of the world; north, south, east and west. The quadrates determine matter as placed within a four dimensional system; length, height, width and time.

    The crescent has the shape and form of a semicircle. It represents the soul and mind, a half perfect, half divine and changing part of Mans being. The figure is broken and has a visible and an invisible portion. It represents something that is half conscious and half unconscious. The visible half makes room for receptiveness, reflections, feelings, memory and mental facilities. The empty half opens up for the unknown, the irrational, imagination, emotion, insecurity and instinct. The continuing change from visible and invisible portions of the symbol brings forth an equal division of tone and pause, causing a pulsating rhythm and concept of time. The half-circle is sensitive, vulnerable and easily influenced. It represents things that are under change or going through a phase. The soul is the bearer of the personality; an experiencing, growing and passing expression of the true self.

    " )" represents the waxing Moon which symbolizes growth, expansion and the opening of new possibilities. In older astrology books "(" can be found drawn into charts to indicate a waning Moon. The waning phase indicates old age, weakness and destruction. It is a time to end, pull together, return, receive, absorb and collect. With the points up this could mean collecting.

    like the horned god symbol, and also like the
    glyph for Pluto:
    http://www.cafeastrology.com/images/plutomed.gif
    The symbol for Pluto is this with a circle over it,
    Mind (crescent)
    transcending matter (cross)
    to reach for divine spirit (circle)

    i will look around some more...

    It looks a lot like one of the alchemical symbols for mercury.

    Minus the circle it no longer is divine energy and you are right it represents mercury, I was working on no sleep for eighteen hours.

    In Alchemy not astrology mercury represents the process of fermentation, and the element sulfur plus the metal lead and the higher mind, if you take away the circle and there is just the cross with the crescent it becomes a entirely different meaning, and could also mean a key of soul and matter or silver.

    You are not ignorant never say that. There are so many different symbols for many things I myself have to stop and say WTF? I sometimes meet myself coming and going.
