The idea of Venus, the planet, evokes so many thoughts. All of those thoughts are to be reperceived starting now. The oldest texts by the most insightful authors tell you the moon is a luminary. I have observing the features of the sky my entire life and nothing we were taught in school makes sense and does not hold true to me today. A luminary is a self-illuminated light source. The moon emits its own light, and it is not merely reflecting the light of the sun. That story never made much sense anyway, but when you hold it up with some of the greatest minds you quickly come to understand things are not as they seem.
