History of Eros in 8th House
The birth of Eros comes from the Chaos after GAIA and Tartarus, according to Hesiod, and also holds in the formation of the cosmos. The universe was created after Gaia and Uranus got a benediction. Homer has not mention anything about Eros in his epics, but Eros was considered the earliest of all gods to come by Parmenides, who is a pre-Socratic philosopher.
At the beginning of the cosmos, Eros was responsible for inducing procreation. Hesiod depicted the two love gods, Eros and Himeros, or Desire, who accompanied Aphrodite from the moment she was conceived from the sea foam generated by Uranus' castration.
According to later traditions, Eros is the son of Aphrodite and ARES. His mischievous involvement in the affairs of gods and mortals enabled love attachments to develop and drama to unfold.
Eros represents an adult, handsome male carrying a lyre or a bow and arrow in early Greek poetry and art. He was the embodiment of love, athleticism, sexual power, and artistic expression. Eros was the guardian of male homosexual love.
Eros symbolizes a blindfolded male with a bow and arrow who has the power to make any human fall in love with the first person they see in later satirical works. This image foreshadows the Renaissance Cupid's chubby infantile appearance.
Eros appears to lose part of his power, wisdom, and age as Aphrodite's son. To his mother, he becomes more of a comrade or accomplice. It could be one probable reason for Eros' transformation from a gorgeous man to a chubby mischievous youngster in myth art.
Eros has the most popular myths that involve his relationship with the mortal princess Psyche. Men were leaving Aphrodite's altars barren to worship at the feet of a mortal, so Aphrodite commanded her son Eros to make Psyche fall in love with the ugliest creature on Earth. On the other hand, Eros fell madly in love with her and whisked her away to his heavenly home.
Eventually, Psyche's jealous sisters made Psyche lead herself towards betraying her own husband, who in turn also decides to leave her. Psyche has been wandering the Earth, looking for her lost love, and seeking for Aphrodite to ask for help. Aphrodite assigned Psyche a series of duties, which she was able to accomplish, forcing the Goddess to relent and reunite Eros and Psyche.
The princes became immortal and produced a daughter, Hedone, with Eros which means bliss. Psyche is a Goddess who represents the human spirit and is shown as a Goddess with butterfly wings in ancient mosaics. The Ancient Greek word psyche refers to a soul, spirit, breath, life, or animating power.
