Helios’ Astrological Angle on Eros in Aries– YES!!! This right here, you guys, is what we need right now. Eros, the cassanova god of Passion, Sex and Intimacy has moved out of soggy, sentimental Pisces and into hot, hot Aries! Now, I may be biased as this is my natal position, but I truly think this is where Eros is at his absolute best. All the other signs he goes through show Eros’ expression through the filter of that sign (with one other exception) but in Aries, he can just be raw, unfiltered, pure hot passion- And that is what we need right now.
Everywhere I look lately, it seems that people are drowning in the quagmire of their own emotions. Everyone is hung up on someone who is ducking them to moon over someone else who is cheating on the first person’s brother with their trainer! It’s all dramatic and gross. Worst of all, everyone is playing multiple roles in everyone else’s drama! Well, here is where we start telling a new story- One where you get tired of sitting around, waiting to be rescued, and become your own Hero!
The thing about Aries as a sign is that it strips away the focus on external factors and concerns. This can be a terrible thing (no one is looking forward to Neptune in Aries in a couple years, I’ll tell you that much) but in this case, with the current factors that we have, this mechanism can get us out of some truly awful situations by bringing us back to who we are and what we want- what Eros needs from you, however, is honesty. He needs you to be honest with yourself right now, and you need to strip away the brand of your own bullshit that you have bought into.
If you are bold enough to look at your situation objectively and own up to what isn’t working and how you have compromised on certain closely-held beliefs, then you can start making progress on making your life match up with your highest ideal. If you love someone but you have never told them because you were trapped in a loveless relationship and stayed out of comfort and obligation, then be honest with yourself about it so that you can then be honest with the person of your desires. If you are stuck in a terrible location and nothing is working in your life but you have stayed due to familial pressure to put down roots and stop being a vagabond while it kills you inside to not chase your dreams, then admit it to yourself.
Now, honesty is well and good, but that’s not the end of it, oh no- the thing about Eros in Aries is that nothing will come to you- You have to go and chase it. You will encounter resistance, and you will sacrifice along the way (in the examples above you would be sacrificing a loveless relationship, comfort, and potentially family and safety, for instance), but I promise you that if you stick with it, you will reach your destined reward- as any Hero would expect.
Say you don’t though. Say that you decide to maintain the status quo, which is absolutely your choice to make. Eventually it eats at you- the longing, the resentment at those who hold you back, and finally, you start turning that onto yourself. Then the self-destructive behaviors emerge, and escaping those becomes more difficult daily. Trust me guys, you don’t want to wake up one morning and realize that you missed your shot because you weren’t willing to put yourself first and choose your own happiness. That is a form of self-love, and it’s not one we’re told is acceptable- especially not in the gross “Lightworker” community. You were not made to be miserable, and suffering is not saintly.
Heretics, its time to pick yourselves up off the floor and stop crying to yourself- you have a life to go and live. It’s waiting for you to rise up and meet it, and Eros will show you the way. Go for it!
