How to call on Aphrodite:
There are various tellings of Aphrodite’s birth, but my favorite was that she just appeared one day, a fully grown woman, riding a sea shell toward the shore. As Aphrodite was born of the waves, she can best be found by the water – preferably the ocean. But if, like me, you don’t live by the ocean, never fear: any running water will do. It’s best if you can perform all rituals involving Aphrodite at dawn, as that was the supposed time of her birth, but even if it’s full noon or midnight, Know that She is there for you.
Prayer to Aphrodite:
Aphrodite, Goddess of Love,
Hear my prayer
Give me the strength, guidance, and inner knowing
To realize my own value, my own worth
Help me to See and celebrate the Gifts You have given me
Help me to Honor Myself, and in doing so, Honor You.
In this I pray.
Thank you, Aphrodite!
Tribute to Aphrodite:
As a Goddess born from the sea, Aphrodite’s favorite animal was the dolphin. As a tribute to Aphrodite, buy fish caught without harm to dolphins or donate money to a charity that helps dolphins or other sea creatures.
