Aphrodite is the goddess of beauty and love in Greek mythology, while in Roman mythological tradition she is called Venus. She represents fertility and is considered the goddess of marriage. Everything miraculous that surrounds mankind is of her creation. Lovers sought her blessings, and singles begged her to help them find their soul mate. Aphrodite was also praised by artists. In clashes of war and peace, she is always on the side of prolonging life, so her affections were sought by those who aspired to prosperity and peace. Aphrodite teaches us to see the beauty in the world around us, in other people, and to appreciate what we have. She bestows passion, the ability to love and give life, rather than maim and kill. Aphrodite is not only the patroness of love, but also the goddess of fertility, eternal spring and life.
