Pagan Holiday for April 6, 2010

Today was the third day for the festival of Megalesia in Rome!!!! Remember, this day honors their Mother of All Gods, Cybele.

Greece was having a very private Observance for their Goddess Aphrodite. Did you know that her name actually means ‘born of foam’? Normally everyone relates Aphrodite to being the Goddess of love, which she was, but few recognize the fact that she also governs sky and wind and was known as the Goddess of Storms. Legend has her stepping from the seas and onto the grand shores of Cythera.

Most also connect Aphrodite to carnal lust when really she stood for wedded love and being content.
