Aphrodite Devotion Progress Report

aphroditealtar

Here is a slightly blurry but the best I could do pic of my Aphrodite altar in its current state. The larger pink bottle holds lustral water, the smaller one holds water lightly scented with rose oil.

I've been doing the daily devotion from Laurelei Black's Cult of Aphrodite. Two thoughts. One, a splash of khernips to the face in the morning is a real waker-upper! And two, the bit where you kneel? Not doable for me, I guess no matter how young I feel, my knees have a different opinion. (I can kneel, it's the getting up again that is the problem :)).

I hear you on the kneeling!

Do you make your khernips for Aphrodite any differently than in general? I ask because I had the privilege of attending a ritual to Aphrodite this weekend in which the priestess had opted to use rose and lavender flowers in the khernips, which was surprising but also seemed very fitting.

Oh, that sounds lovely! No, I just did the usual (burning stick extinguished in the water--Hellenic ritual really does have the best purifications!). I considered using incense, but all my incense is Japanese so I figured it would probably just fall apart in the water and make a mess. :)
