The Asteroid Eros can shed some light on some of our erotic turn-ons. In mythology, Eros was the god of sexual love and desire. He was considered irresistible. In Roman mythology, Eros was known as Cupid. “In Greek art Eros was depicted as a winged youth, slight but beautiful, often with eyes covered to symbolize the blindness of love. Sometimes he carried a flower, but more commonly the silver bow and arrows, with which he shot darts of desire into the bosoms of gods and men.” (Encarta Encyclopedia) Eros the asteroid mostly travels within the orbit of the planet Mars.
Eros overpowers the mind with love and sex. In astrology, Eros represents sexual objectification, passion and desire, and creativity. Note that Eros is not always sexual, per se, as Eros represents creative passion as well. In the chart, it can point to areas into which we pour a lot of passion.
The glyph, or symbol, for Eros quite fittingly depicts a heart with an arrow through it, as Eros was Cupid in Roman mythology.
