Connecting with Aphrodite – Creating Space for the Goddess

To form a meaningful relationship with Aphrodite (or any Deity), you need to give Her both the space and the opportunity to show up.

You demonstrate to Her that She is important to you, and that you have the willingness and dedication to pursue a deeper relationship with Her.

I worship Aphrodite because I adore Her, because I want to feel and be all of the beautiful things She represents in my life, because She is worthy of honor and respect, and because the act of worship brings me that much closer to Her.
