Aphrodite : Olympian Goddess of Love and Beauty



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Aphrodite is the great Olympian goddess of beauty, love, pleasure and procreation. She was depicted as a beautiful woman usually accompanied by the winged godling Eros (Love). Her attributes included a dove, apple, scallop shell and mirror. In classical sculpture and fresco she was often depicted nude. Aphrodite may have been the most attractive goddess, but according to the Iliad (the famous poem by Homer), she was a rather weak, frightful goddess.

I chose her because Aphrodite symbolizes beauty, love and eternal youth. During the early times, Greeks used to seek Aphrodite when they have problems and concerns regarding love. Aphrodite's symbols were the girdle (which she was using to compel love), the seashell and the mirror. Her sacred animal was the dove.
Aphrodite is one of the earliest Olympian goddess. She is believed to have risen from the foam created by the sex organs of Uranus after they were thrown into the sea by his son Cronus. Aphrodite’s husband is Hephaestus, the God of fire, blacksmith and craftsmen. Aphrodite married her because it was the only way to free Hera in the magical golden chair Hephaestus created for her. Aphrodite has said to have a secret affair with Ares, the God of war.

Aphrodite is a very sensitive God especially with regards to her beauty. She should not be compared to any mortal. Aphrodite is a great goddess. She is very important for Greeks looking and asking help about love.

Love is needed for all people, without love there will be no peace and order.

  4. Stories of ordinary people becoming millionaires overnight with the help of some wonderful programs are flooding us from all directions and even though many of these stories are exaggerated at best and total lies at worst, there are many ways in which you can make money, even if you are not a unique talent.
