March 28th 2019: Eros enters Leo, a volatile and challenging ingress for the asteroid that bears the conflict of longing to connect while simultaneously resisting the connection, into the sign of the glorious radiating ego. This transit symbolizes facing fears about our selves. Insecurities that are deeper than our conscious awareness will rise to the surface to be recognized and addressed.
The Fool is the first card of the major arcana and is the beginning of a new journey in consciousness. The Fool’s awareness is liberated from goals, plans, strategies. True freedom comes in the absence of all projections- hopes as well as fears. The Fool trusts, and holds no expactations. This is the meaning of innocence.
Eros in Leo as the Fool represents being flexible with your desires and being humble enough to start over. There can be a distorted sense of loyalty to the hopes and fears we project onto our unfulfilled desires (our desires are intertwined with our perception of our identity), and it’s impossible to make a major life change when we are committed to resisting the truth about ourselves. Sometimes our yearnings are toxic energy dumps projected onto things that further enhance the illusion of separation; Sometimes our yearnings are a placeholder for an authentic connection that we are subconsciously preventing ourselves from accepting because of our deep rooted insecurities about what we think we do and don’t deserve.
