An intricate pattern emerges in the dance between Earth and Venus. 
If we lock Earth in place, this is how Venus would appear to orbit us - a five petaled flower. Each petal is the point when Venus seems to reverse direction, what we call moving in retrograde. When the ancients first observed planets in retrograde, they believed them to be special stars that did not have fixed paths. They called them Wandering Stars.
