Marital Bliss

In which the realm of Earth & Venus is taken as a single space with a simple geometry


Next Page

  Earth and Venus are so very happy together that it is their whole combined space which exhibits the simplest harmony. Between Earth's greatest distance from the Sun and Venus's closest approach to the Sun lies the total realm of Earth & Venus, or their home. A single square proportions this region with 99.9% accuracy. The square was generally associated with Earth, the City or the home, and since it here embraces Earth's relationship with Venus, amongst other interpretations it may be thought of as alluding to the sacred institution of marriage. Both Earth and Venus are traditionally female so in fact a better title might have been Blood Sisters, alluding to the earthy connection between women.
