 Sufi beliefs put lots of faith in geometrical symbols...because
of thier beliefs about the unity of Allah & the prohibition against
icons they have. Templars are rumored to have deep connections 
with Sufi Islam.

 This is exsplained well in The Learning Channel Special " The Shadows
of The Templars".

 Both are feminine planets and the  Knights Templar are rumoured to be a 
Gnostik perhaps Sophia-Shekinah of The Gnostik Gospels. >

 Try Solsistice Equinox...June 23 & 24, and March 11.
