I'm so pleased I found your blog. I'm a priestess of Venus :) All hail Venus/Aphrodite! Blessed be!

Hail Venus, Mother of Rome!

I'm delighted that you found this blog. =) And ... that you've found it to your liking. ;-)

I am a priestess of Venus myself. Where did you get this image? It's gorgeous. Would love to have one on my wall, but don't know where to look.

This image is a still pic from the opening of the Summer Olympics in Greece a few years back.

Do you happen to have a higher dpi version of it? It's absolutely perfect for a project I'm working on!

Laurelei said...

Sadly, no. This is the only copy I have. I wish I could be of more assistance. =(

Thank you so much, Sea Opal!

I haven't written a post with all her epithets, and I don't know of one online, per se. It's actually on my to-do list. I cover many/most/all? in my book Aphrodite's Priestess, but I'd like to do a series of blog posts in which I explore them. It's a project I'm planning. =)

As for incarnations ... oh, that is a topic close to my heart. It's also one that gets me funny looks if I go too far into my thoughts on it. But I have a novel that I've written about Sappho, whom I see as a priestess of Aphrodite (like an avatar ... almost). It's called Temple of Love. And I am working on one about Helen.
