Description

Aphrodite, Goddess of Love

Aphrodite is an ancient Greek goddess associated with love, lust, beauty, pleasure, passion, and procreation. She reminds us to be gentle to ourselves and others, and she instills in us the knowledge that we are enough. Aphrodite’s major symbols include seashells, myrtles, roses, doves, sparrows, and swans, and in classical sculpture and fresco, she is usually depicted nude. Her Roman counterpart is Venus.

Aphrodite was very beautiful, which made Zeus afraid that she would be the cause of fights between the other gods. He therefore gave Aphrodite to Hephaestus. Hephaestus was happy to be married to Aphrodite and gave her many pieces of jewelry which were gifts of love, like a belt that would make men attracted to her whenever she wore it. Aphrodite, however, was not attracted to him. She spent most of her time with Ares, but she also with Adonis and Anchises. She had many children because of this.
