This post-Beatle musical strain has been shamelessly and ambitiously explored by XTC since their third album, 's Black Sea. When I say close, I mean relatively.

The positions of Venus and other planets were thought to influence life on Earth, so the Maya and other ancient Mesoamerican cultures timed wars and other important events based on their observations. In the Dresden Codex , the Maya included an almanac showing Venus's full cycle, in five sets of days each approximately eight years , after which the patterns repeated since Venus has a synodic period of The Maya civilization developed a religious calendar , based in part upon the motions of the planet, and held the motions of Venus to determine the propitious time for events such as war.
They also named it Xux Ek ', the Wasp Star. The Maya were aware of the planet's synodic period, and could compute it to within a hundredth part of a day. The Maasai people named the planet Kileken , and have an oral tradition about it called The Orphan Boy. Venus is important in many Australian aboriginal cultures , such as that of the Yolngu people in Northern Australia. The Yolngu gather after sunset to await the rising of Venus, which they call Barnumbirr. As she approaches, in the early hours before dawn, she draws behind her a rope of light attached to the Earth, and along this rope, with the aid of a richly decorated "Morning Star Pole", the people are able to communicate with their dead loved ones, showing that they still love and remember them.
Barnumbirr is also an important creator-spirit in the Dreaming , and "sang" much of the country into life. Venus plays a prominent role in Pawnee mythology. The Pawnee , a North American native tribe, until as late as , practiced a morning star ritual in which a girl was sacrificed to the morning star. In western astrology , derived from its historical connotation with goddesses of femininity and love, Venus is held to influence desire and sexual fertility.
In the metaphysical system of Theosophy , it is believed that on the etheric plane of Venus there is a civilization that existed hundreds of millions of years before Earth's  and it is also believed that the governing deity of Earth, Sanat Kumara , is from Venus.
The discovery in the modern era that Venus was a distant world covered in impenetrable cloud cover gave science fiction writers free rein to speculate on conditions at its surface; all the more so when early observations showed that not only was it similar in size to Earth, it possessed a substantial atmosphere. Closer to the Sun than Earth, the planet was frequently depicted as warmer, but still habitable by humans. Findings from the first missions to Venus showed the reality to be quite different, and brought this particular genre to an end. Another appearance of Venus in popular culture is as the harbinger of destruction in Immanuel Velikovsky 's Worlds in Collision In this controversial book, Velikovsky argued that many seemingly unbelievable stories in the Old Testament are true recollections of times when Venus, which Velikovsky claimed had somehow been ejected from Jupiter as a comet , nearly collided with the Earth.
He contended that Venus caused most of the strange events of the Exodus story. He cites legends in many other cultures including the Greek, Mexican, Chinese and Indian indicating that the effects of the near-collision were global. The scientific community rejected his unorthodox book, but it became a bestseller.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The eight-pointed star was a common symbol of Ishtar. Here it is shown alongside the solar disk of her brother Shamash and the crescent moon of her father Sin on a boundary stone of Meli-Shipak II , dating to the twelfth century BC.
