February is the month of the year dedicated to love. This emotion means so much to the human race, that we created a special day, February 14th, to honor and to spoil the individual who is our “heart’s desire”.
Who better to bring to life this month than the Greek Goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite. Aphrodite has the distinction of having two births; her immortal birth and her public birth when she was old enough to handle her aspect. She was born to the proud parents of Zeus (Father of the Gods) and Dione. When she was old enough to be brought into the public light; Aphrodite was introduced to her adoring public with a grand entrance. She road the foam of the sea in a giant clam shell, landing to greet her adoring public. She was an exquisite and purely feminine picture of ultimate beauty. Her unique entrance into the mortals world still lives on today through the words of Homer.
As Aphrodite grew through the years, and gained wisdom from her dealings of the mortal heart, she evolved into the Goddess of all aspects of love. She was known as Aphrodite Urania, and stood for the celestial concept of the ideal love. She was also known as Aphrodite Benetrix when she used her aspect to protect the sanctity of marriages. Lastly, she was known as Aphrodite Porne and stood as the Patroness of courtesans and for the aspect of lust.
Aphrodite resembles her aspect greatly. Where love and beauty enchants another’s soul, Aphrodite was considered a powerful enchantress in her own right. Love can be kind and cruel to both mortals and immortals. Aphrodite was also when she felt she was not receiving the adoration and respect that she deserved. She was greatly feared by men and women, because nothing can whither the soul more efficiently than lost or unrequited love.
Aphrodite agreed to answer a few questions for her adoring public. So without further adeu.....I give you Aphrodite, Goddess of Love!!!!
