Definition #20084 - Preferred [edit]
definition x1 is Virgo [constellation/astrological sign].
notes From ferti. The Greeks and Romans associated Virgo with their goddess of wheat, Demeter-Ceres who is the mother of Proserpina-Persephone. For this reason the constellation became associated with fertility (in both Babylonia, Greece and Rome). Alternatively, she was sometimes identified as the virgin goddess Iustitia or Astraea, holding the scales of justice in her hand as the constellation Libra. Since ferti in lojban covers both potential and actual/realized fertility, the original meaning of the constellation have been chosen, but you could probably still interpret the name in both senses (as a deity of fecundity or as a fertile virgin).

Definition #20089 [edit]
definition x1 är Jungfrun (stjärnbild/stjärntecken).
notes Från ferti. Grekerna och romarna associerade Jungfrun med deras vetegudinna, Demeter-Ceres som är moder till Proserpina-Persephone. Därför blev stjärnbilden associerad med fruktbarhet (i både Babylonien, Grekland och Rom). Alternativt så var hon ibland känd som jungfrugudinnan Iustitia eller Astraea, som håller rättvisans våg i sin hand. Eftersom ferti på lojban täcker såväl potentiell som faktisk/förverkligad fertilitet, så har den ursprungliga betydelsen blivit vald, men kan förmodligen ändå tolka namnet på båda sätten (som en fruktbarhetsgudom eller som en fertil jungfru).
