When Aphrodite speaks,
It is usually a whisper, but just like love at first sight, it is unmistakable in its auspiciousness.
Every time someone tries to sell me on the spiritual value of chastity I’m like, have you considered the spiritual value of sex

Paganism is the rediscovery of what we lost, and passing it down to new generations who will build a better world.

@grandsextile I wish this was the reality of being a Pisces 😭😭😭😭
But maybe it’s my Virgo rising balancing it out
When it comes to making her presence known, she can be very subtle. And love prefers and invitation. Often times meditation can peel back the subtlety and provide some clarity.
She may also appear by beginning to work on your life. Suddenly fall in love? Whether good or bad, you be assured Aphrodite or one of her children are at work. It may be beneficial to reach out via offering or prayer.
It’s important to understand with the universality of love there is a range of ways in which her presence can be ascertained. But if you feel either of the aforementioned after calling her. She has likely appeared into you.
She may appear in her different aspects as she chooses fit, or she may appear in many at once, perhaps all. For all of her faces, the head it’s attached to is still Aphrodite. You may call upon specific aspects of her for your prayers according to their function.
The spirit that has entered is one of a stern love, ready to defend and maintain itself at a moments notice. Her heartbeats with authority that fills the room, when she smiles it is because she already knows how the battle will end. Love prevails. This is Aphrodite Areia, warlike
During this ritual, a very different aspect appears. The air in the room stands at attention, it stills buzzes in harmony but a different, warlike harmony. Akin to the marching of troops. It becomes impassioned to maintain love, with harshness if necessary.
In the presence of #Aphrodite all things align themselves peacefully. Our words more easily transmute into poetry, our gazes softens, and our hearts open. This is the Urania Aspect of Aphrodite. But how else can she appear?
Suddenly the static in the air seems to harmonize with itself. The rooms takes a deep breath, and the air becomes softer against your skin. You feel the presence of a maiden, mother, and crone in one.
Infinite, unhindered love and pulchritude flow through her veins.
In my experience she doesn’t use outright symbols as often as she simply wields her own presence. Let me describe what it feels like when she enters my ritual space.
How she speaks with symbols:
Look out for her traditional symbols such as-
Doves, Apples, myrtle, roses, lettuce, rabbits, and Venus.
If you notice these things appearing abnormally often and at auspicious times her presence may be near.
Aphrodite, although and incredibly powerful Goddess, her presence and omens can often be subtle. Her energy can range from a barely perceptible ocean breeze, to a tsunami of all encompassing Divinity.
Let’s talk about these things, and the things in between.
the first thousandmillion times believers said things like "i believe in one God" it must have been so edgy, rebellious, adversarial. just think--us dirtworshipping heathenous sorcerers and our little statues, we're bringing that back for them. what a blessing
@lilearthmother I’m sorry! 🥺
I’m here if you need any tips herbalism wise, feel better soon!
Aphrodite is not simply Goddess of love and beauty ,
Aphrodite is love and beauty itself.
Think on the universality of these things, and a glimpse of her omnipotence can be appreciated.
Aphrodite bronze head, Hellenistic Period; late 3rd-early 2nd century BC.
Head is decorated with diadem with two doves, associated with worship of Aphrodite, elongated drop earrings, and necklace of pendants. Eyes were inserted, glass irises were set into fine lime paste.
Praise she who exist within all forms of love, and beauty. She is ever present. Praise Aphrodite, fairest of the goddesses, midwife of pulchritude, harbinger of Love, paragon of kindness.
They named Her Aphrodite, of seafoam. This is the birth of the fairest of the Goddesses, this is the day love was given form and planted into the cosmos.
The nymphs of the ocean and coastline quickly gathered around the site to observe. They knew immediately a great power was being born. They watched as she gestated within the foam, within minutes she had become the embodiment of Love, beauty, grace, lust, sexuality, harmony,
Ouranos screamed in agony, shaking the sky as his genitals flung toward the island of Cyprus, with a massive splash they collided with the ocean (Oceanus). Golden blood swirled fiercely within vicious riptides, producing shining iridescent seafoam.
One of which she had cleverly colluded with, Kronos, a young titan. He waited for his father with a great blessed sickle, and as the sky moved towards the earth- Kronos struck. In one quick and precise motion he swung the sickle with heavenly precision.
The night creeps slowly over Gaia, as Ouranos rises, obscuring the illuminating rays of Helios and revealing Selene's silvery glow. The earth itself shudders as Gaia begins to tremble, for her heart belonged to no man mortal or god, save her children.
