Just some remarks on the missing letters for Virgo and Scorpio:
In the 4th ring on f57v there is a Scorpio-like sign (EVA avvn) between
the suspected "letters" for Capricorn and Venus. Given the frequent
occurrence of "an" and "al", we cannot exclude the possibility that
sometimes two EVA letters stand for one astrological symbol:
As the signs for Virgo and Scorpio are quite similar (M-shape + tail
vs. M-shape + loop), why not write them "ar" and "al", with "r" and "l"
as modifiers to symbolize the tail/loop? This would render the text
even more unintelligible to potential decipherers, and on the other
hand it would explain some of the low entropy effects of Voynichese.
(It would also mean that the infamous "8.a.m." turns out to be
Venus + Scorpio.)
BTW, EVA a could also be a simplified Libra, but if all zodiac signs
map to consonants, this obviously does not hold.
I further suspect that there are more "two-letter-variants" in the MS,
and I also believe that the letter "o" maybe has even more functions.
Nevertheless, I think we're getting closer!
