I believe the circle is symbolic for infinity, eternity, and wholeness. The physical universe is comprised of spherical shaped planets, representing life and existence. The basic circle or sphere doesn't have a top or bottom, base or face. There's no beginning to end, or start to finish. It's a constant cycle that can represent religion, commitment, time, life, etc. For instance, the halo above a saint's head is circular and symbolizes divinity. The ring on the couple's ring-finger represents marriage and commitment. And the circular shape of a clock represents the 24-hour cycle of a day.
