Aphrodite is the goddess of love and beauty. She is often represented by a mirror.

Aphrodite was the daughter of Uranus and Dione, but sometimes she was also said to be the daughter of Zeus and Thalassa or Dione. Aphrodite’s beauty was so stunning that men who catch a glimpse of her fall into a puddle of incoherent mutterings. Hera promises Aphrodite to her ugly son Hephaestus, the blacksmith god. Many suitors come to see her and offer her gifts in exchange for her hand, including Poseidon, Apollo, and Hermes; however, it is Hephaestus who wins Aphrodite’s heart by promising her that he will be a good husband for her because he works a lot. Sure enough, Aphrodite uses her free time in her marriage as an opportunity to carry on many affairs, most notably with Ares, the god of war.

Aphrodite is also thought to have had affairs with Zeus, Poseidon, Hermes, Adonis, and Dionysus. Aphrodite and her partner Adonis are still celebrated in festivals today, especially in Hellenism which worships the Greek gods and goddesses. Aphrodite takes a special place in their summer celebrations, and she is revered as a living goddess.
