Transcript of Aphrodite
Aphrodite is the goddess of love and beauty. In roman mythology she is known as Venus. She is said to be born from sea foam, riding on a scallop shell.
Greek vs. Roman Aspect
In Greek mythology, they thought Aphrodite was the goddess of love and beauty. In Roman mythology, she was the first goddess of protecting gardens, but then changed to the goddess of love, fertility, and beauty.
Aphrodite was sometimes considered the goddess of war. Homer the poet claimed she was born from Zeus and Dione. Her day of the week is Friday and her month is April. The sign for female is Aphrodite's mirror. Her sacred plants are the rose, myrtle, and anemone. Her sacred animals are the dove, sparrow, and fish.

Aphrodite is married to Hephaestus. She had an affair with Ares and had a son named Eros with him. She also helped Jason get the golden fleece.
Aphrodite's powers are granting beauty, joy, pleasure, procreation (conceiving), and making people fall in love.
Her symbols of power are the apple, (because she won the golden apple which caused the Trojan war), the myrtle wreath, a scallop shell, (because she was riding one when she was born),and the dove.
