As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

The Feast of Aphrodite

Aphrodisia, festival of Aphrodite, ancient Greece was, according to Wilson's Almanac celebrated on or around February 6th. If you'd like to invoke the Goddess of love, sex, and beauty, you can prepare for a feast honoring Aphrodite's loving sensuality and warmth.
  • Decorate with pink carnations; they are the flowers of friendship.
  • Burn warm yellow sandalwood scented candles - sandalwood loosens inhibitions.
  • Put symbols of love including pomegranates, apples, and seashells out in blue ceramic or crystal bowls.
  • Invite friends to bring an aphrodisiac food for sharing (cherries, oysters, papaya, chocolate, truffles, red wine, etc).
  • Open a window or door slightly.
  • Join hands around the dinner table.
  • Recite this invocation:
Aphrodite, Greek goddess of friendship, love, and life
Come join us, bring peace and eliminate all strife
We welcome you with fruit, flowers, fire, and fresh air
Release us from anxiety, stress, or despair
Come down; be with us
Grace us this special day
We call you with love
We hope you will stay.

  • Repeat three times with sincerity.
