72 is also 1/5 of a circle and the angle needed to form the pentagram.
The pentagram is the symbol for Venus
The five pointed star became a scientific/religious symbol originally for one reason and one reason alone. It represents the 40 year cycle of Venus' interractions with the Sun in the sky, as viewed from our Earth. Every 8 years Venus transit occurs. This occurs at 5 different points of the zodiac, and was measured to be such by the world's earliest astonomers (in today's time we call ancient astronomy: astrology). After Venus transit occurs 5 times within a 40 year cycle, 8 years apart each, it then repeats once again, in a perfect "star" when measured against the zodiac circle.
Forget the Satanists as far as the original source of the origin of the Pentagram, though they are certainly entitled to their interpretation.
In the Order of the Eastern Star, the pentagram in the circle refers to the most ancient symbol of "venus tranist". Fot those who do not know, even Jesus (Youshua Ben Joseph) was preplanned to achieve a "venus birthing", as were all ancient king/preists of the ancient mysteries. Some more "christian-oriented" Chapters of the O.E.S. believe that the bottom point of the pentagram actuallu symbolizes the "pointing out" of the birthplace of the baby Jesus, for the three Magi to find their way to his birth.

In the "Sepher Sephirof," it folllows on from 71, which is a Lunar Female number in the Hebrew Gematria, according to Messrs Alesteir Crowley, which it also seems is the number of "Lam," thee path to follow or not follow.
Hebrew Letter LAMED
In Kabbalah, the Letter Lamed symbolizes aspiration, contemplation of the Heart, and spiritual work. It is formed by a Vav, whose head (Iod) looks downward on the letter Kaph.
”A tower soaring on the top of the head, in the air,” this is the only kabbalistic letter that ascends above the head.
Kabbalistically the letter Lamed is written (lamed-Mem-dalet) and is read: Lev Meivin Daath. This phrase means: a heart that understands Daath - Knowledge. Lamed is Wisdom acquired by the brain by means of the Fires of the Atom Nous within the heart. Eve (intuition) through the heart teaches Adam (the Brain) how to develop Objective Reasoning in order to understand the universe.
The form of the letter Lamed represents the way in which the fires of the heart nourished by the spirit can feed the aspiration of the Mind.
“It is written, Man (the mind) shall not live by bread (sensual knowledge) alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” - Matthew 4: 4 from Deuteronomy 8: 3
The letter Lamed hides in its shape the way in which Tiphereth learns how to be a King (Meleck) through Daath (through the wisdom, the teachings of Iod-Havah). The light of the Ain Soph, the Solar Absolute, the Cosmic Christ, hovering on Schamayim (the fiery Waters of Mem) descends into Atziluth through the letter “Iod;” thereafter, the Father (in the shape of a dove) from Atziluth descends into Daath in order to impregnate “He” (the Mother Binah), there in Briah, She gives birth to the child of wisdom (Chokmah). Thereafter, Chokmah as “Vav” descends into “Kaph,” the brain (Adam) within the pineal gland (the manger of Bethlehem). From the “Kaph” the effluvia of the Son of God descend into the heart, which is Eve, the other “He”. In the heart is Nous (the Son of Man, Tiphereth) the consciousness of the Bodhisattva (the vessel of light), who is nourished with the fires of Judah (Leo the Solar Light, the Ain Soph Aur).
