Tarot Clarity – Eros in Scorpio – Knight of Wands

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.

Tarot Clarity – Eros in Libra – Two of Wands

Eros in Libra, the God Prince of Love in the sign of beauty and partnership, the palace of his mother Venus. In Libra, Eros embodies the Cupid archetype popularly imagined as a cherub. Cupid’s arrows are his divine birthright. He is the immortal entity responsible for directing the circumstances that bring lovers together.

The Two of Wands is a card that usually indicates insecurity and inhibitions: creative or sexual flow that is stuck behind an energetic block. Eros in Libra inverts this interpretation of the Two of Wands around the concept of desire.

eros.libra.2.wands

The word “virgin” doesn’t just mean someone who has never had sex. A child who has no concept of sex or attraction does not think of themselves as a virgin. The deeper implication is that a virgin is someone who has become aware of their sexuality but has not acted on it yet. Eros is aroused for the first time when a youth realizes that they are a virgin.

In our culture, there is a misplaced emphasis on the significance of the first sexual act, so recognition of virginity tends to enter our minds as the perception that we are lacking something important. The magic of Cupid is that he can return us to the same blush of innocent hunger with each and every new lover we encounter in our lives, so it is also common to feel the same impression of absence. When we define ourselves by what we don’t have and/or haven’t done, the result is always going to be the Two of Wands: insecurity and inhibitions.

The Two of Wands representing Eros in Libra teaches us that desire in its healthiest and most potent form does not view the self as lacking love, it views the self as a place where love belongs. Desire is a sensory celebration of our capacity for new experiences. Desire is a call for love to come home.

Tarot Clarity – Eros in Virgo – The Star

May 5th 2019: Asteroid Eros enters Virgo, the sign of highly organized brainpower and a humbled self in service to others. On the surface it may seem paradoxical to blend sophisticated intellect with mundane tasks, but that is the art and science of the mutable earth sign.

Eros represents our fear of being truly seen, both longing for and running from sacred union. Eros exposes the longing and yearning that arises from the subconscious when we work to hide the parts of ourselves that we need to share to experience the unique ways that other people can love us.

The Star is the card of finding your place in the world: in other words, leveling up your experience of embodiment by dissolving the imaginary boundary between you and everything else, and allowing an equal exchange of sacred light from self to environment and from environment to self.

After Eros transits Leo, where he faces his insecurities, Eros in Virgo as the Star is about making the transformation to maturity, realizing that if he wants to be in true divine union with Psyche, he cannot keep shooting arrows on a whim creating random obsessions and lust for his own amusement. Virgo is where Eros learns to shoot arrows from a place of higher purpose- service- so he can then enter Libra and step into the true power of his gift: an enlightened matchmaker for soulmates.

Tarot Clarity – Eros in Leo – The Fool

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.leo.fool

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.

“If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.”
