if the "X" or "+" refers to a symbol, it has to be (without you pointing it out) the "star of the crossing"
or the "southern" cross of old....'né-bé-ru' or nibiru. A planet in orbit around a hidden companion sun to ours.
It was Marduk's sign in sumerian mythology, often depicted as a winged disk.
As the highest point in the paths of the planets, Nibiru was considered the seat of the summus deus who pastures the stars like sheep, in Babylon identified with Marduk.
The establishment of the nibiru point is described in tablet 5 of the creation epic Enûma Eliš; “When Marduk fixed the locations (manzazu) of Nibiru, Enlil and Ea in the sky"
Nibiru has been associated with the area of Libra: The Nibiru constellation rose in the month of Tišritum, around autumnal equinox, however Nibiru was also a name for the planet Jupiter when observed in the month of Tišritum.
