Logos 58534

Logos is an ancient Greek philosophical term meaning “the Word”. It represents logic (for which it is the root term) and reason; rational, cognitive thought; and was used particularly for persuasive argument. It stands for the principles of order and knowledge, the premise of an idea or thesis, and the logical arguments or examples which support this.  The name Logos was given to a TNO (Trans-Neptunian Object) from the Kuiper Belt region of the solar system, near Pluto.

Astrologically, Logos represents intelligence, logic and reason; the rational motivation behind something; the measured consideration of an argument, point of view, perspective or theory; Truth and Order; integrity. It can refer to linguistic or rhetorical skill, in speech or written form; persuasiveness, eloquence and cogency.
