Deities of Love and Lust

I stood before my altar today, and I realized something in the middle of my daily ritual: there is no deity on my altar, nor has there ever been, who is associated with love. No one to appeal to, no one to ask for a helping hand in that arena. There is no one there who has the slightest association with sexuality or love to me.

I have written and collected a wide number of love spells in my life, but I've never used one: while I find them interesting and extremely fun to read, I cannot find a use in actually using one.

I found myself wondering if this omission was on purpose, or accidental. Did I mean to ignore deities of love and lust? Am I simply uncomfortable with them? Is it more basic than that? Can I not find these feelings within myself, and thus cannot find any divinity within them?

Is it possible that love, itself, is not something that I have ever really been interested in?

I don't think that's the case.

But my altar says differently.

I am not sure what to make of this little revelation. But fortunately for me, symbolism doesn't exist, and so nothing really can be made of the omission. It falls to the level of amusing curiosity.
