Kypris: The Aphrodite of Cyprus Revealed

November 23rd, 2011 § 0 comments

The video below is a trailer for the documentary Kypris: The Aphrodite of Cyprus Revealed.

The whole film hasn’t actually been completed yet, but filmmaker Stavros Papageorghiou is hoping his IndieGoGo campaign will help get it done. And I hope so too, it looks really interesting.

The film is an exploration of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and fertility, who according to some legends, was born in Cyprus, where she’s still worshipped today.

Papageorghiou wants to shine light on the mythology, history, and archeological discoveries surrounding this beautiful ancient goddess, not to mention, take a look at her modern day worshippers.

#3 The Empress from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot

The Empress

In Tarot, the spirit of Aphrodite can be found in all of the female Major Arcana, but I think she’s most evident in the Empress, the Grand Mother of the deck.

The Empress represents love, abundance, and fertile creativity. She is beauty and compassion, nurturance, and celebration.

And not surprisingly, Venus is the planet astrologically aligned with the Empress, a planet named for the Roman incarnation of Aphrodite.

Take a look at Papageorghiou’s video and see what you think, or visit his page to learn more.
