August 3rd 2019: Eros finishes his transit though Libra where the Cupid archetype brings first awareness of desire for the other. When Eros enters Scorpio, he brings awareness of what lovers do- fluid bonding in the dark. As Jeff Goldblum says in The Fly, “I’m talking about penetration beyond the veil of the flesh! A deep, penetrating dive into the plasma pool!”
The Knight of Wands is the only Knight that rides a white horse, which is a symbol of fulfilled desires. The arrival of a white horse indicates that prayers have been answered and wishes granted. But mostly, the Knight of Wands embodies the idea that once we get what we want, we don’t want it anymore, either because we are too immature to advance to the next level and are stuck craving the experience of the chase, or because we are mature and can expand new dreams on the foundation of the ones that came before.
Eros in Scorpio as the Knight of Wands shows the development from having feelings for someone, to actually being with them. It shows how basic it is to crave sexual intimacy and how advanced it is to be capable of the emotional and intellectual intimacy that makes the physical act so compelling in the first place.
