Can someone inform me on Aphrodite's Symbol? A spell I'd like to cast needs me to draw it but I'm not sure about it because I could draw a Dove, or mirror or something like that but it's not specific,
here's the link if you'd like to see...
Let me clue you in on it before I give you an actual answer. If your manfriend approaches you with flowers to show his love (for example, on Valentine's Day), what do you think he will give? A bouquet of tulips? Daisies? No, sweetie, they're roses.
Aphrodite's most common symbol is a rose. Other symbols are:Scallop shell, myrtle, sparrow, mirror, and swan.
Also, if you're wanting to cast a spell that is directed towards her, I do recommend establishing a relationship with Her first. It would make your spell, well, more connected and better:
http://hellenicdevotions.com/ (under there it should say "Aphrodite")
I also checked out the spell that you posted. And to be brutally honest (which is what I do), you can't automatically expect your true love to just walk in front of you and immediately fall in love. It just doesn't happen that way. Begin to love yourself fully and true, and allow the love to draw near you. I think that's the most effective way.

Zeusy was kinda harsh, but it's the truth. Social media mixes up alot of things, mythology and symbols included.
Now the Dove is a representasion of her, yes. But the rose is another symbol. What explains love more than a beautiful Rose? Nothing else. Also in myths it said aphrodite rose from the sea, this you can believe what you wish..but, seashells, oisters(i think that's the spelling) are another common symbol.
Heck makeup can work too? Not the best idea, but still used.
Now for working with her, try developing a connection with her. It will help tremendously, and you'll feel the effects. Pray to her, see her likes, learn all her different deitie names, (venus, aphrodite, ect). Learn her lore (myths) legends, anything on her. Good luck!

Cut an apple in half and you will see the echo of the apple blossom that created it, a pentagram. The apple symbolizes love and is associated with Aphrodite. The pentagram is an ancient symbol of Venus. Aphrodite was associated with Venus before the Romans named her such. If you research it, Aphrodite and Artemis were both associated with Venus--Aphrodite was the morning star (Venus when it shines in the sky at dawn) and Artemis is the evening star (Venus when it shines in the sky at night). This union of stars was displayed as two 4 pointed stars twisted to form a single 8 pointed star. This was the symbol for Astarte, also associated with Venus. If you Google "Astarte symbol" you will see it.
From my understanding the Greek deities didn't have "symbols" as much as they had "symbolism" which is much different. They were not represented through sigils but rather through nature.
