In spring, however, the moment of rebirth after winter, the sun crosses the celestial equator and passes into the northern hemisphere, crossing the constellation of Pisces. Whoever was born under this sign knows.
Perhaps he does not know, however, that in that constellation there are represented two extraordinary figures of the Greek myth; the first is Aphrodite, goddess of beauty, love and - we could say - of intercourse, the other is Eros, god of desire and physical love. In short, an "erotic bomb!". It is said that the two, to escape the Titans and in particular the monster Theseus, who had a hundred heads and shot fire from his eyes, after hiding in a reed bed, and being discovered, turned into fish, go up to heaven, and now you can admire them there, looking up towards the constellation of the same name on clear days between August and March.
Aphrodite more than any other loves smells, so much so that she is remembered as the Goddess of Perfumes. On the other hand, if it is true that these are considered a powerful weapon of seduction, it could only be she who holds the scepter. Phaon knows something about it, to whom Aphrodite, as a sign of gratitude, had given a jar of perfumed oil. That oil made him attractive and irresistible, so much so that all the women of Mytilene fell madly in love with it. Perhaps that time, however, the goddess exaggerated a little, because those fiery women, attracted by that uncontrollable charm, turned out to be the cause of poor Phaon's death. That perished thus, loved and perfumed.
