Star of Washington Aerial

In sacred Geometry, the five pointed star is one of the oldest symbols on Earth. The lines that make up the star cross each other, they produce line segments that are in the phi relationship to one another; that is, a pentagram that is the quintessential symbol of the golden number, Φ ( The Greek letter Phi, symbol for 1.618 ... )

Venus in the Heavens

Venus 'overtakes' the Earth every 584 days as it orbits the Sun. As it does so, it goes from being the 'Evening star', visible after sunset, to being the 'Morning star', visible before sunrise.

Pythagoras is usually credited with recognizing that the morning and evening stars were a single body in the sixth century BC, though he thought that Venus orbited the Earth.

Venus Pentagram Conjunctions

If you were to plot the orbiting path of Earth and Venus and place a point when the two planets align with the sun, you will see Washington's star. It takes 8 years for Venus, the earth, and the sun to align 5 times.

Venus will appear in front of the Sun on June 6, 2012.

Venus Unfinished Pentagram

Venus disappears for an average of eight days in the glare of the sun during its transition from evening to morning star.

Pythagorean Pentacle

The Pythagoreans called the pentagram ὑγιεία Hygieia ("health"; also the Greek goddess of health, Hygieia), and saw in the pentagram a mathematical perfection. The pentagram was used by the Pythagoreans as a symbol of recognition among members and as a symbol of inner health (ugieia).

Green Knight Pentagram

The first English mention of a pentagram appears In the legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Stanzas 27-28 (1380 c.) where Gawain, traditionally the Celtic sun-hero, carries a shield "...shining gules, With the Pentangle in pure gold depicted thereon."

It is a symbol which Solomon conceived once
To betoken holy truth, by its intrinsic right,
For it is a figure which has five points,
And each line overlaps and is locked with another;
And it is endless everywhere, and the English call it,
In all the land, I hear, the Endless Knot.

Goethe's Faust

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe magnum opus, lauded as one of the peaks of world literature, is the two-part drama Faust.

Mephistopheles:

I must confess, my stepping o'er
Thy threshold a slight hindrance doth impede;
The wizard-foot doth me retain.

Faust:

The pentagram thy peace doth mar?
To me, thou son of hell, explain,
How earnest thou in, if this thine exit bar?
Could such a spirit aught ensnare?

Mephistopheles:

Observe it well, it was not drawn with care,
One of the angles, that which points without.
Is, as thou seest, not quite closed.


Faust:

Chance hath the matter happily dispos'd!
So thou my captive art? No doubt!
By accident thou thus art caught!

Mephistopheles:

In sprang the dog, indeed, observing naught;
Things now assume another shape,
The devil's in the house and can't escape.

Faust:

Why through the window not withdraw?

Mephistopheles:

For ghosts and for the devil 'tis a law,
Where they stole in, there they must forth. We're free
The first to choose; as to the second, slaves are we.
