    Good question, sir!
    Yes and No. They were then meant to be astronomical symbols for Venus
    and Mars, respectively.  The "New Age" stole them for Female and Male. :)
    (See Bowditch [1977] Appendix C - the celestial symbols are/were often used
    in sight plots, still always for sun, star and moon ....errrr, I think  ;)
