She was born from what???

This week we'll look at Aphrodite, or Venus. Essentially she is the same in the Greek Pantheon and the Roman Pantheon. For ease, we'll call her Aprhodite! She is one of my favorite Goddesses in many ways! She is the Goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and pro-creation.
 Legend says that during a battle Cronos cut of Uranus' genitals and threw them in the sea, and from this and the foam of the sea Aphrodite was created. This makes her older than Zeus, :) I bet he wasn't thrilled with this, LOL. Aphrodite was of course beautiful and had the eye of every man. The other Gods feared that she would, because of her beauty created jealousy and war. Zeus married her off to Hephaestus, who wasn't in the least considered a threat.

 Aphrodite loved many men, including Gods such as Ares. She is a huge player in the Eros and Psyche legend. She was also the lover of Adonis and his surrogate mother.

Turtles, horses, doves, dolphins, scallop shells, roses, swans and sparrows are sacred to her.

She wasn't the most even tempered Goddess out there, hence her passion with Ares. She loved a good fight, and a tryst of love. She may have been married, but she cheated more times than can be counted. She was lusted after by mortals and immortals alike.

When working with her, you can expect to feel loved and embraced. Remember she is your friend. I wouldn't get overly impatient though, as she can be quite tempermental. Enjoy her and be surrounded by her love. She has a healing quality, so all you need to do is relax and let Aphrodite take over.
