I`m looking at a synastry here, and I`m very puzzled by the placements of Cupido.

Her Cupido:

squares his Lust (1)
trines his Mercury (0)
sextile his Uranus (2)
trines his Karma (0)
opposite his Amor (3)

His Cupido:

conjuncts her Lust (0)
conjuncts her Mars (3)
conjuncts her Neptune (3)
sextiles her Pluto (2)
conjuncts her True Node (3)
conjuncts her Atlantis (0)
conjuncts her AC (0)


It seems so that especially his Cupido is triggering sensitive spots in her horoscope; even though her Cupido trine his Karma (only 6 minutes from being exact, minutes, not degrees!) is quite telling, too.
I also read that Cupido is "the look of love". But what does it mean exactly?
Is there an attraction? Is it only a superficial one? Is it an attraction triggered by the physical features of the other one?
And who would be the attracted one?
If it`s his Cupido conjuncts her ASC, does it mean that he is attracted to her appearance, that he maybe finds her beautiful?

And that dw of Cupido - Lust. What does that mean?

Cupid: "The look of love, aware of image, being tantalized by the reflection, seeing is exciting or foreboding."

So Cupid-asc your view is right,he might think that she is very attractive and heīs fascinated by her image

Also skuares his Lust and conjunct her lust - so he and she would feel a strong desire for her/him by looking at each otherīs image ?

oposing Amor - he would also romaticize his view on her in thoughts?

*giggles* I like your interpretation. Me likey very much!

"So Cupid-asc your view is right,he might think that she is very attractive and heīs fascinated by her image"
Somehow I greatly doubt it. lol
If it was the other way round, she fascinated by his beauty, then maybe. But anyway it`s good to hear something like this.


"Also skuares his Lust and conjunct her lust - so he and she would feel a strong desire for her/him by looking at each otherīs image ?"
Hm, hm, hm, it does sound rather delicous. And so true, she has been spending about one year looking at his image.


Ah, I`m sorry, I should solve this riddle for you. Since I can`t stop analysing and testing, I went through my data list and since I`ve had a somewhat major crush on Jude Law *rolls eyes - yes, I know nanny and so, but still I thought he was hmm something* for a certain time, I just let my eyes wander over his horoscope, and the placement of his Cupid caught my attention, being so tightly conjunct my ASC, but I always thought it should have been the other way round. You know, my Cupid, his ASC, that would have been fitting.
I need to distract myself from my sm-actor, because I don`t even like him anymore at the moment. He`s the reason I`m going to London and therefor he is the reason I`m so excited and scared, and that somehow blocks my sympathy for him.
So I need to turn my thoughts into other directions. That`s the reason why I looked at Mr Law`s horoscope.

darkdreamer - You sure know how to pick them. Jude Law, nanny incident or not, is very appealing.

Cupido is an asteroid I've been curious about too b/c natally I have it conjunct my Sun (0). Well, 8 minutes to be exact . Iqhunk discussed Cupido in his thread about Amor and Valentine. You've probably already seen this, but this will put his Cupido info on this thread:

Cupido shoots the arrows of inititaing love. Eros and Cupido are the same being but the Human Consciousness associates Cupid with a love initiator and that is the frequency that this Asteroid beams.

His Cupido conjunct Venus means that he can always be spiced up by your charms, hairstyle, smile, batting eyelids, voice, your material values and all other Venus ruled attributes.

Your Cupido conjunct his Mercury means you can always be romantically interested in him because of his wit, choice of words, knowledge and the use of his fingers, either on an instrument or even the way he massages your hair, shoulders etc etc etc.

....According to my research, Asteroids work on name frequency effect. If a large percentage of people on Earth who have time to think imagine Eros to represent Potatoes, then the energy of this ancient evolved being would combine with human representation of potatoes to make a man be aroused whenever he eats a potato.
Now, Eros and Cupid are the same being Mr X who is in charge of lust/sexual passion.

The myths confirm Mr. X to deal with passions. The name associations in popular consciousness decides what aspect of passion will be governed by which asteroid.

EROS today is erotica, sexual intercourse etc. CUPID is a baby in diapers who shoots arrows of love. So the energy of Mr X that is imparted to the asteroids will pass affect the human mind according to the perception.


So I guess Eros is more lustful and primal, while Cupido is more admiring and charming. With his Cupido conjunct your AC, he would be charmed and turned on by your overall appearance and way of carrying yourself, and drawn to initiate (shoot his arrow ) a romantic relationship.

Jane,

you wrote:

"You sure know how to pick them."
Well, not exactly. Actually it feels like they do pick me, even though that is impossible. But I remember very vividly how I was sitting in the cinema in january 2005, watching "Closer", and I was repulsed by the film, at least I thought so, and I wondered all the time: "Why don`t I get up and leave?" I really wanted to, leave the cinema as quickly as possible, but I couldn`t. I was like glued to my seat and my eyes were glued to the screen. Very fascinating man, and I`m not talking about Clive Owen.

"Cupido is an asteroid I've been curious about too b/c natally I have it conjunct my Sun (0). Well, 8 minutes to be exact ."
Wow, that is close!
So you must be a very desirable person, or a person who has strong desires. Mmh, got to stop here, sorry to cut it this short.

My boyfriend's cupido conjuncts my Asc and amor. That would explain alot. Because his venus makes no aspect to my Asc or Sun (but it squares them both by sign).

My cupido on the other hand, possibly conjuncts he Descendant. Crazy huh?

I sort of agree and disagree with everyone. I agree that Cupido signifies the image/face/physical characteristics of a person.

However, as regards the ASC-Cupid contact, DD, I think that it's the other way around.

The ascendant is a point of desire for us. When you think about it, the ascendant is the Aries house. its primary flavor is physical, desirous, and active. Exercising our ascendant IS a Martian, active endeavor. As such, when someone's planet (whatever it may be) conjuncts or contacts our ascendant, we admire/covet/desire/pursue the part of that person. If someone's Saturn conjuncts our ascendant, aside from the need to get away from him/her (LOL) we also need structure from that person, we need and share control with that person. If it's someone's Mars, we want to work/work out/have sex with that person. If it's someone's Uranus, we need to have space and yet a sense of camaraderie with that person and on and on.

When it's someone's Cupido, the body that reminds us of the sheer intoxication of that person's LOOK (and feel and image), that is what we latch on to. We respond in almost a physical way (remember ASC is the physical/Aries/active/desirous PERSONAL point of the chart - much more personal than our Mars) to that person's physical attractiveness.

Cheers,
Tara.
PS. DD, I've got a drafted email sitting for you. Sorry I got out of touch. I was in India for a while visiting family and then started a new job. Been hellish busy. WIll send you the email soon if you want it. Take care... and have fun on this trip you're taking

Oh Diandra,

everything went wrong, and I`m still here, because due to circumstances I missed my train (the train which should take me to Eurostar was an hour too late, so I missed the Eurostar).
The only option I have now is taking a flight on Thursday and stay a bit longer than I originally wanted.
But the only and last time I flew was 10 years ago (to London coincidentally) and I`m scared of flying. I don`t know what to do. But I want to see him so much. I cannot describe what I felt when I realized I wouldnīt get the train.

oh DD,

This reminds me of that dream you had and posted on the other forum...hmm - maybe it wasnt meant to be that you were on this particullar weekend - and so, if you go thursday, and have to stay longer there... then, more time to bump over him at a corner dont you think hihihih

Dont be sad,it will all turn as it has to be!

Saty aware of your next dreams,maybe they would tell you more about this trip.

I would also look closely again of those lexigrams you made

darkdreamer - Clive Owen, now there's someone whose chart I need to check out. I find him incredibly sexy. (Just checked--we have conjunct Valentines )
Besides Cupido-Sun, I also have Lust conjunct my Asc. I take my vitamins.
I'm so sorry about your train! Have you decided to fly? I understand your fear of flying. My mom and brother are both scared of flying, and I would probably have to anesthesize them to get them on a plane, so if you have it as bad as they do, I imagine flying probably doesn't even seem like an option. I know you must be deeply disappointed, but maybe you will get another chance. Could you attend a show on a different day?

Tara - I'm so glad you brought up that alternate way of viewing ASC aspects, b/c it's something I've been wondering about myself. I look at it like this though: the ASC is more self-absorbed, while the descendant is outwardly focused. So when someone's planet contacts our DC, we're attracted to them. They, sensing that we like them and view them as a partner re: whatever the planetary contact is (Sun, Mars, etc) would in turn want to play that role for us. The DC is like Venus, admiring and loving. The ASC is like a self-absorbed Mars, expressing himself. Other people who contact it would admire and be attracted to this Mars point, and we in turn, will like that they are attracted to our self, and will like them in return, and like you pointed out, the planet making the contact will determine the type of attraction they feel for us and that we in turn want them to feel for us. From the charts I've looked at, the AC-DC axis seems to work this way more often than not, but I do every now and then see it more as the way you described. So I'm keeping an open mind.

Diandra,

I hate to disappoint you, but I won`t be going to London at all. I know it all seemed as if was meant to be, but apparently it wasn`t.
I listened to my dreams again. maybe I shouldn`t. If you`re interested in that particular dream, I can mail you this.
However, I just can`t fly. It`s such a stress for me, it spoils every kind of joy. So I guess it`s not worth it.
Instead I will spend a few days in the Netherlands, at the sea. Feels like I`m going home actually. I haven`t been there for so long, and I love going back there, and I think I need the time to sort out my everchanging thoughts and feelings.
don`t know what astrologically happened, but something surely happened.

IM Only sad because it seemed so fated and right...

But you are the only one whp trully knows whats goin in your heart and mind DD

The panic of you to fly its awful, i never flied in my life so i cant really know how it feels.

If you feel goin there to the Netherlands it will make you better,than go

Do you think that change of ideas had to do with some astrological transit?

Diandra,

yes, I also thought it felt fated and right. It would have been too good to be true. But on the other hand, you know everything happens for a reason, and all those obstacles on my way to London were probably just a sign that it wasnīt meant to be, no matter how wonderful the astrology looked.
Itīs astonishing how easy everything fell into place now, booking my trip to the Netherlands. You know such nice things like booking the last available single room (as if they have been waiting for me lol), and even the train-ticket is much cheaper than I thought, even the numbers of my seats resonate strongly with me. Both times I will be sitting in train 24 (6 is the number of my lifepath), and one time I`ll be having seat 11.
I know it`s not London, but I feel I have to take this time to sort my feelings and thoughts, and I can do that best there. I`ve always felt so much at home in those little Dutch villages near the sea.

Regarding my sm-actor, well, I guess it was only a big crush I`ve had. It makes me sad, yes, but it doesn`t leave me devastated not seeing him. He served a purpose in my life, and I think part of it was opening up my eyes for so many possibilities in my life. But hey, let`s face it, the ruler of his NN, Venus, is exactly square my own NN. It seems to imply that we don`t have the same path in that life.

Regarding transits:

Tr-Pluto is conjunct my Sun-Mercury
Tr-Uranus is conjunct my Juno (and dr Valentine) and square my Karma; also trines my Saturn.
Tr-Saturn is opposite my Psyche
Tr-Jupiter is conjunct my NN, Neptune, ASC and Atlantis
Tr-NN is conjunct my Jupiter, square my NN, Neptune, ASC and Atlantis
Tr-Sun is conjunct my Saturn, trine my Juno
Tr-Valentine is square my Sun / Mercury and trine my Valentine
Tr-isis / Osiris is trine my Mars, NN, ASC and sextile my Pluto
Tr-Amor is trine my Amor
Tr-Eros is opposite my Saturn, sextile my Juno
Tr-Psyche is opposite my Juno and square my Karma
tr-Kaali is opposite my Uranus and conjunct my dr Isis / Osiris
Tr-Siva is square my Psyche and trine my Vertex and Eros

I don`t know, those seemed pretty significant, and yet, things are as they are now.

darkdreamer - I'm so sorry that things didn't work out the way you had hoped, but I am so impressed by how you dealt with your disappointment. I don't know if you're still on vacation (I've been away too), but if you are I hope you are having a lovely time. I think you are very right about how the sm-actor has served a purpose in your life. And even if you're not meant to know one another this time around, he has woken you up in ways that I'm sure will benefit you.

Jane-

thank you for your nice words, but I don`t think I`m coping all too well. I`m still chewing on my disappointment. *sighs*
But there`s no use in complaining and whining, is there?
I hope you had a nice vacation. Mine was good, at least in the light of the circumstances, how I got there. It was the right decision to take some time for thinking and relaxing.

Twinkle Star:

hm, don`t you ahve other aspects, too? With Cupido? The Cupido in his 7th looks good, but to be honest the other aspects don`t look to me, as if Cupido plays a large part in your synastry. Even though maybe there takes some sexual (Cupido) healing (Chiron) place?
