I have the same connection with Aphrodite, or Venus.
It's a pattern that just keeps coming back in my life. I've embraced it a couple of years ago, did some meditation, looked up information and for me she is now the resemblance of my Goddess.
I've used my own idea of how she looks in a statue I made out of clay...This way she is always present at my altar and looks after me when I do ritual (spell)work.
Take some of the advice that has been given already...Or, if you already did: how did it work out for you? I'm curious!
Love and light,
* Eat, drink and be merry
Be with those you love
For tomorrow we all have to get up and go to work again *
