Goddess of love, beauty, desire, and all aspects of sexuality, Aphrodite could entice both gods and men into illicit affairs with her good looks and whispered sweet nothings.
Aphrodite was born when Cronos castrated his father Uranus (Ouranos) with a sickle and cast the genitalia into the sea from where Aphrodite appeared amidst the resulting foam.
Because of her beauty and uncontrollable desire, she was seen as a threat to interrupt peace between gods because of jealousy.
Aphrodite is connected with the sea and shells, dolphins and swans, apples, pomegranates & roses.
