What's the real reason I perform the LBRP?

I have read that the planet Venus traces a pentagram across the sky over a certain period. The conjunction cycle. That fascinates me.
Here's a couple of charts of it:

To take things further along this geometric train of thought...
I have often seen the Quabalistic cross as the establishment of an axis ( of the xy variety).
One then revovles or rotates about this axis to create the infinite boundry of the universe ( a circle).
Before 'finally' establishing four corners of a square demarking terrestrial boundries of a sort.
There is also the idea of formulating a cube, but that one is still suffering from light pollution.

"The pentagram is a perfect geometrical expression of the Golden Ratio. The Golden Ratiois an ancient proportion  a relationship of numbers  in which the ratio of the lesser number to the greater number is the came as the ratio of the greater number to their sum: a/b = b/(a+b)."
First of all, thank you for such a wealth of information. I've never seen the pentagram portrayed in this light.
Secondly, does the Golden Ratio have any bearing on celestial matters, i.e. the positions of the planets, or their rate of orbit?

I can't offhand think of an example where it does. For example, ellipses come in all varieties of eccentricity, and approximate patterns like Bode's "law" don't fall in that ratio.

keepin' the mystery alive...

There seems to be some (possibly coincidental) match between the ratios of the orbital distances, and revolution periods of the planets. And a few other things.
Certainly it's present in nature. See Adolf Zeising as an example:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Zeising
He talked about the golden ratio as being based on the chemical structure of the underlying elements. (Which would in turn be based up the orbital fields of electrons of the underlying atoms)... talk about as above, so below...

That's very cool. (Especially Saturn's rings, which I should have known from looking at them all of these years.)

Thank you very much for that explanation Jim, much food for thought!

wow, the links you provided are awsome
i guess the origins of the pentagram go back farther then we think
i love bumping into scientific findings that give our beliefs stable ground to stand on

Excellent! That's exactly what I was looking for. Amazing that the planetary distances correspond almost exactly to Phi.
