Aphrodite - Greek Mythology - Aphrodite was the Goddess of love, beauty, pleasure and procreation in Greek Mythology. Some traditions stated that she had sprung from the foam (aphros) of the sea, which had gathered around the mutilated parts of Uranus, that had been thrown into the sea by Kronos after he had unmanned his father. She was the wife of Hephaestus. Aphrodite had many consorts/lovers that included (Hephaestus, Ares, Poseidon, Hermes, Dionysus, Adonis, and Anchises). Aphrodite had several children (Eros, Phobos, Deimos, Harmonia, Pothos, Anteros, Himeros, Hermaphroditos, Rhode, Eryx, Peitho, Tyche, Eunomia, The Graces, Priapus and Aeneas). Some of Aphrodite's symbols include the dove, rose, scallop shell, myrtle, dolphin, sparrow, girdle, mirror, and the swan.
