Today, while writing about my top five movies I had an epiphany: I have not one goddess, but two. Like Love herself I had been blind to the obvious. How could a die-hard romantic like myself not worship at Aphrodite's alter? It usually feels more right to have two. Two works for me- two animal totems (cat and seal), two people in love, Two giant orbs in the sky, two goddesses to worship. Makes perfect sense. If I ever have children I would have two.|
According to most legends, the goddess of Love was born from The Sea. It makes sense to me that epitome of love would be born from the esscense of emotion.
I don't think I'll worship Aphrodite as the Greeks did in time's past, but adapt my own way (As I have with The Sea), honoring her each day in my own ways. Love and The Sea have always been co-mingled for me in some way, I think I'm just paying more attention now.
