A strong, seductive woman with fire in her eyes. She's the kind of girl that oozes intensity and to her, love is a battlefield. Ishtar was the Babylonian goddess of love and war, so passionate she sometimes accidentally killed her lovers.
"That Ishtar blew me away, man- she's hot as hell and powerful as a goddess."
"The Goddess Ishtar saw him and fell in love with the beauty of Gilgamesh..."Be my lover, be my husband", she spoke and said, ..."plant your seed in the body of Ishtar"...Gilgamesh answered and said... "I have nothing to give to her who lacks nothing at all. You are the door through which the cold gets in...You are the house that falls down...the ill-made wall that buckles when time has gone by."
Only a man part god could turn an Ishtar down
Ishtar was the consort of Marduk and a Sun Goddess. Her following diminished in Babylon during a patriarchal shift in society. The book of Esther in the Bible is believed by some to be in deference to the steadfastness of Ishtar's followers, in that a resurgence of the Goddess cult rendered the nation of Babylon more peaceful and non-combatant, resulting in the release of Israel.
I had heard, but have not verified, that the Book of Esther is the only book of the Bible in which the name of God is not spoken. If this assertion is correct, the assumption that the ancient Hebrew scholars took Ishtar as their own and Esther resulted is more sanguent.
