The Power of Love and Eros
Updated: Dec 10, 2020
With the New Moon in Scorpio...I Just LOVE my horoscope this week! Time to set some new intentions for Celebrating Life..
ARIES (March 21-April 19): In old Christian and Islamic lore, the dove was a symbol of the holy spirit. The bird was considered so pure and sacred that the devil, who was an expert shapeshifter, could not take on its form.
The dove had a different meaning in other traditions, however, among the ancient Greeks, it had a special relationship with Aphrodite, the goddess of love. In Rome, its eggs were regarded as aphrodisiacs.
Drawing on all these meanings, I'm nominating the dove to be your power animal in the coming week. You will have an excellent chance to intensify your connection with divine truths through the power of love and eros ~ and vice versa.
(Perfect for me. Thanks, Rob Brezsny!)
