Every 8 years, Venus returns to almost exactly the same point it was 8 years before, and in the exact same relationship to the Sun. Venus will dance its conjunctions in the shape of a heart, because of her backwards or retrograde cycle. The shape of these 5 hearts over the 8 year cycle creates a 5 petaled Rose. Thus, we have the Star, Pentagram, Heart, and Rose, all traditional symbols of the Goddess and Beauty that Venus literally traces in her elegant dance in the sky.
