Observation: The perfect proportion is known as the Golden Section: the square root of 5 plus 1 divided by 2. This ratio is 1 to 1.618. A is to B as B is to A & B. This is the ratio of most of nature’s most beautiful things: the human body, DNA, the spiral nautilus, et cetera.
Comment: Symmetry is beautiful in physical manifestation. Symmetry of the soul is not only seen; it is also felt.
Symbol: Gemini (Zodiac)
