Eight-Pointed Stars: 1 and 2

The eight-pointed star once depicted the planet Venus, which has an eight year cycle.  The eight-pointed star may also symbolize the goddesses, fertility and blessings associated with the planet Venus.  There are many variants of eight-pointed stars in North African folk art.

This pattern has three variants, so you can see how you can fill in different sections to make a more dramatic pattern.
