Mythology of Aphrodite/Venus
The mythology of Venus lies within the origins of Neolithic Greece. Referred to as ‘Eurynome', which translates to the " vast wandering one”, she was born of fundamental Chaos, grooving on the water. Eurynome transformed the North Wind flow into a snake named Ophion and this is usually where the serpent impregnated her and she gave labor and birth to the " Cosmic Egg”. Venus is known to have arisen from the polyurethane foam of the seashore; this creation was lead after Saturn castrated his tyrant father being Caelus. This is where Caelus' genitals drifted over the normal water and triggered the seawater and the " Cosmic Egg” mixed to foment the growth of the kid who would become Venus or perhaps better regarded in Greek mythology Aphrodite.
Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love the girl was depicted as a soft weak, unimposing goddess nevertheless inspite of like a goddess she later started to be a treacherous who exerted a dangerous power over men. One of the significant incidents due to her exploits was the Trojan Battle. This was where there was a competition to name the most beautiful of the goddesses. The " Apple of Discord” was thrown out onto the table and Eris claimed that who ever was the fairest. Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite each reached to get the apple and Zeus claimed that Paris being the most beautiful man alive would judge who had been the fairest. Hera guaranteed him power, Athena guaranteed him wealth, and Aphrodite promised the most amazing woman in the world. Paris chose Aphrodite and promised Helen wife of Menelaus.
