Phoenician Fertility Goddess
Also known as Ashtoreth
Phoenician Goddess of Fertility and Sexual Pleasure
She is extremely horny. We’re talking cow’s horns of course, as Astarte is a sexy cow — and ritual prostitution is always on offer.
Astarte was very popular in Old Testament times and traveled far and wide, starting up in business all over the place with the help of her consort and brother Baal. This kind of thing was always a cue for monotheistic fury and Biblical condemnation.
She was also worshiped in Babylon under the name Ishtar — and vice-versa.
