Aphrodite is the Ancient Greek Goddess of love, beauty, pleasure and procreation. She was pleasure and love, seduction and the epitome of all that the Ancient Greeks considered as the ultimate feminine, beautiful, attractive, sensual and worthy of adoration and desire. It is important to bring back balance for the highest good of all. On a spiritual level, this means, taking inspired, not mindless action, being receptive and connected to your divine source and taking action on those grounds, rather than bulldozing your way through life, regardless of any collateral damages.
On an emotional level, it means, being strong in spirit, yet able to acknowledge and express your feelings and thoughts without going into victimhood or perpetrator mode, but to look at, express and, where needed, heal your emotions and thought patterns. On a physical level, this means, adoring the feminine as much as adoring and worshipping the masculine, being sensitive to your own physical needs and desires, being able to accept love and physical shows of affection, freely exploring your sensuality and sexuality by yourself and / or with a partner in a mutually trusting, respectful and appreciative relationship.
Aphrodite teaches us to worship our divine feminine energy within and see our bodies as sacred temples of divine creation. If you find it challenging to love yourself as a woman and to embrace the beauty and sensuality of your body without shame or guilt, Aphrodite’s energy is very good to work with, as it helps you to see yourself as the result of divine imagination incarnate in the flesh.
