An item sent to me by SMS by son Thomas:
Venus orbits the Sun 13 times for every 8 Earth orbits. If you track the relative positions of Earth and Venus over an 8 year period, this is the resulting pattern.
Thomas asked if this was true.
According to an article by Howard Arrington at
John Martineau, author of A Little Book of Coincidences, has charted and compared the orbital patterns of various planets.
Because the inner planets move faster than the outer planets, there are interesting patterns created.
The Earth-Venus pattern shown above is on an 8 year earth cycle because 8 Earth years equals 13 Venus years, so that the cycle repeats after 8 years.
Here are some other compared planetary orbital patterns:
Mars and Venus
Saturn and Jupiter
Uranus and Saturn
Jupiter and Earth
Mars and Earth
Earth and Mercury
According to Arrington:
“The planets in the heavens move in exquisite orbital patterns, dancing to the Music of the Cosmos. There is more mathematical and geometric harmony than we realise.”
