Cupid & Psyche

Carefully Considering Your Actions and Their Impact on Others

cupid-and-psyche-news-itemLove has many dimensions. Each and every one of us dreams about finding our soulmate, but unfortunately, so few ever do that it makes up a significant percentage. Love may be precious and hard-won, yet it’s worth fighting for.

Last night, I received an order for our Astrology Shop, specifically our Karmic Birthday Package. A seventy-year-old lady touched my heart by asking whether or not she would ever find her soul mate. Unfortunately, my expertise does not allow me to answer this query directly. Dadhichi advised ordering one-on-one consultation services instead, as we don’t provide extensive consultation services here at Astrology Australia.

But this lady struck my fancy, and I felt truly fortunate that I’d found my true soulmate! To answer her queries, I consulted Dadhichi (a non-psychic psychic). After discussing what had transpired briefly with Dadhichi, he offered his insight. Still, he refused to provide answers about whether her wish could ever come true or not, after which I just emailed Dadhichi what it revealed regarding this query from me. It truly inspired and touched me that someone so old still believes in love at her advanced age!

Dadhichi told me off-record that love is love, and finding your soul mate is only part of it. Even though fate helps us find Mr. or Mrs. Right, ultimately, it’s up to each individual whether they act upon this opportunity.

Cupid and Psyche: Mythological Perspective

My favourite love story is the timeless Roman mythological account of Cupid and Psyche from ancient Rome; theirs is an unrivalled love tale! You can read their romance in Apuleis’ second-century AD novel Metamorphosis or more commonly known by its nickname Golden Ass.

Psyche was an exquisite mortal woman so beautiful that Venus, the goddess of beauty and love, was jealous.

Venus becomes so jealous that she sends Cupid to make Psyche fall for some vile monster. Unfortunately for his mother’s plans, however, when Cupid saw her, his instructions proved ineffectual. Instead, he fell deeply in love with Psyche and began following her every day, but eventually found his mission impossible as more and more times per second, her beauty caught his eyes more strongly than before!

Venus became so angry at this revelation that she cursed Psyche into having no one willing to marry her, which greatly displeased Cupid. Therefore, he decided that for as long as this curse continued, he would no longer shoot arrows at Venus, eventually leading to her temple downfall. After so long of living without love on Earth, Venus began to feel neglected as no one seemed to praise her anymore. Finally she met up with Cupid and conceded to his demands; thus restoring romance back on planet.

Cupid, to protect Psyche from her mother, hid her away in a luxurious palace with invisible servants taking care of her needs. Her husband would visit only at night but refused, forbidding Psyche from looking directly at him because of fear it might show weakness on his part and believe he was simply another beast!

Psyche becomes Pregnant

After becoming pregnant, Psyche decided to visit her sisters once more as she missed them so much; unfortunately, however, two jealous sisters told her rumours of how her unborn baby might one day become devoured by an enormous and evil serpent that would devour both mother and unborn offspring upon its first feeding time.

They advised Psyche to place a knife and oil lamp in her husband’s bedroom and wait until he fell asleep, lighting the lamp and then killing him to confirm the rumour of infidelity. Unfortunately, Psyche took this advice out of mere curiosity, but unfortunately, she disobeyed Cupid and brought a candle into their bed while resting when one dropped his shoulder. Cupid was awakened with anger as one drop fell onto his shoulder which caused an awakening; in response, he made their home disappear; in anger at her disobedience, Cupid decided that their home could no longer remain and then abandoned her forever Psyche alone to continue with life alone in exile.

She searched high and low but couldn’t locate Cupid. Finally, she visited Venus’ temple to inquire about his whereabouts. Venus told Psyche she’d reveal Cupid’s whereabouts provided she passed several tests that seemed impossible; still, she agreed and passed them all with flying colours!

Venus conducted one final trial by sending Psyche down into the Underworld to retrieve a box, whereupon she fell immediately asleep after opening it. Cupid noticed what was going on and convinced Jupiter to order Venus to stop persecuting Psyche before flying directly towards her to visit.

Removing her sleep with a kiss of love, Cupid sealed off the curse in an iron box before sending Psyche back on her journey. Later, he asked the gods to make Psyche an eternal goddess; their agreement led Cupid and Psyche back together again as eternal lovers. After their reunion, they gave birth to Voluptas or Delight, the Goddess of sensual pleasures or bliss in Latin. This daughter later became Voluptas or Delight herself!

Like the mortal maiden Psyche, we sometimes allow ourselves to become blinded by uncertainty or the opinion of others when it comes to trusting ourselves about Love. Love exists right in front of our very eyes, but oftentimes, we do not trust our emotions, instincts or inner selves enough to sense Love accurately.

Three components to finding true love

Eros and Cupid are two forms of sexual or physical attraction we experience when first meeting someone we find attractive, the initial attraction we feel when first encountering them. Spiritual attraction without sexual arousal constitutes deep friendship – Agape.

Psychon is the Greek term for a butterfly, which also symbolizes our souls. A butterfly begins life as an ordinary caterpillar before emerging from its cocoon as its true self. We, too, hide ourselves from experiencing all that love has to offer us!

True love only arises when two souls meet and sexual attraction as well as deep friendship exist between them, in an unconditional fashion.

True love encompasses every facet!
