Why Venus was angry of psyche?

Venus hated Psyche passionately because of her great beauty. People were beginning to ignore Venus's altars and they instead sacrificed to Psyche, calling her the new goddess of beauty. Furious at this mere mortal girl who was stealing the homage that Venus thought rightfully belonged to her, she attempted to have her son Cupid make Psyche fall in love with a horrible monster. When Cupid ended up falling in love with Psyche himself, this only served to make Venus even more furious; that her own son would adore her worst enemy.

How do you get your new husband to understand what love really is?

In my 63 years I've never heard of a good explanation as to what love is. This word is the most popular word thrown around the world, but my adage is "talk is cheap, action speaks."

Sometimes two people have different ideas as to what love really is. Your boyfriend or husband may think as long as they provide for you, put a roof over your head and food in your tummy this is a sign of love, while yet another man may be very romantic and shower you with gifts and spoil you rotten. Both are love if that person does not harm you in any way and basically makes you happy. Sometimes true love is quiet and just because someone tells you all the time they love you doesn't make it so. I'll put my bet on the guy (like my own husband) who doesn't tell me he loves me every waking moment, but on occasion. I trust him, and I know he loves me. Love doesn't have to be explained.

I have no idea why you seem to think that you have the answer to what love really is, because the wisest men in the world haven't answered that question to date. I think love is what makes you comfortable, the joy of seeing that person, trust, respect and knowing you will be there no matter what.

Also, it is quite common when dating that each person puts their best foot forward to impress the other. Once marriaged it takes time to get use to each other. Some men almost right away feel they no longer have to impress their new bride. She's theirs! This is where communication comes in and you will need to do this throughout your married life. Being honest about your feelings to your mate is healthy, and if it bothers you I suggest you sit down and discuss it rationally.

It is also important as mates that we learn from each other. One person can be quiet and calm, while the other is very extroverted and "out there." It's a great balance if you learn from each other.

Good luck Marcy

You should have known these things PRIOR to getting married.

You can't and don't find out everything before you get married. My husband and I have been together for 8 years and married 3 of them. I'm still learning him, I don't particularly think people change, but they do change their ways.

Why did Hephaestus divorced Aphrodite?

Aphrodite (goddess of love) was in love with someone else (Ares (god of war)) plus Hephaestus (lord of the forges) wasn't all that good looking, and for Aphrodite, that would be a disaster if she stayed with him for a millenia (just saying). I mean even Hephaestus' own mother (Hera) had her problems with him because he was so ugly, and she dropped him off a cliff of Olympus.

Who created a statue that Venus brought to life?

In Ovid's Metamorphoses (a long poem with many stories of magical transformation) Pygmalion is a Cypriot sculptor who carves a statue so beautiful that he falls in love with it. In despair he prays to the goddess of love (Venus). She brings the statue to life, and Pygmalion and his statue (who is called Galathea in later versions of the story, though Ovid does not give her name) have a son called Paphos.

It is just as well that no-one reads this story from its source anymore (Book X of Ovid's Metamorphoses). It is R-rated in the original version.

What are Aphrodite symbols and why?

Aphrodite was gorgeous, perfect,eternally young woman with a beautiful body.

Yes, but those are qualities, not symbols.

**

Aphrodite's symbols are the scallop shell, the dolphin, doves, lovebirds, swans, golden apples, pomegranates and roses.

I think the scallop shell and dolphin shows that she was born in the ocean from the foam. (One of the myths of her birth.)

The doves, lovebirds,swans,and roses show her power, love.

I suppose the golden apple is for her winning that apple thing against Hera and something. T.T; I forgot, it's one of the myths though.

The pomegranates for Hades giving the pomegranate to Persaphone which banished her to the underworld.
