Valentine’s Day and Cupid

posted by Susan Gregg

cupid.jpgSunday is Valentine’s Day. the day of love. I find its history and its evolution very intriguing and will write all about it later this week. Thursday I am also writing a post about 21 ways angels can help you find love. So this will be a love filled week.

Today I thought I’d share a bit about the Roman god of love, Cupid.

Cupid is the Roman god of love and the son of the magnificent goddess ,Venus. At times he is portrayed as a small, blindfolded, winged boy, carrying a bow and arrow. Whoever he shoots with his arrow, is destined to fall in love. Some stories say he was born from a silver or golden egg. Cupid is cute and lovable but he is also mischievous and dangerous. His arrows contain love but they also inflict pain.


His wings speak to the spiritual side of love yet his lofty vantage point often leads to the despair of lost love.  He is often a trickster when he chooses to play with human emotions, but ultimately he is the god of love. Cupid reminds humans of the power of love especially when it is pure and uncontaminated by jealousy, fear and greedy attachment. From Cupid’s perspective much of what human’s call love is really nothing but an attempt to control and manipulate another person. He knows the meaning of true love and knows that means wanting the object of that love to be happy, even if that means that person is meant to love another.

Cupid reminds people that they must first love themselves then they will  to be able to truly love another. His arrows only cause pain when the heart they pierce is unsure of their ability to love and care for themselves while having enough room to care and love for another.

Invocation:

The most familiar image of Cupid is seen around Valentine’s Day usually in front of a large red heart. You can use that image to call upon him and write your request on the back of the heart.  He loves love so he will rapidly come to the aid of anyone who asks with an open and loving heart.

Cupid will help you:
Find love
Heal a broken heart
Love yourself unconditionally
Improve all of your relationships

This is an excerpt from my book The Encyclopedia of Angels.

Perhaps ask Cupid to teach you about real love before you find your true love.

With love and aloha,
Susan

    On this Valentine day I want to say to all of you please “Don’t say you love him/her unless you really mean it, because It might do something crazy like believe it.”Love is the subject for live happy life not for joke.

    I am loving myself first,then i shall be capable of loving another person.I think it’s better to close our mouth not letting the one we love know we love them,it’s better this time:)though we truly love someone in our life,we can say i love you once in a while,or we can never say we love them,but let them feel we love them very much.

    If we remember to be gentle and loving with ourselves we have more than enough love to share with others and we can release our fear of loosing love.
    With love and aloha,
    Susan

Stories
I remember playing the game ‘telephone’ as a child. We’d sit in a circle and one person would begin my whispering a story into the next person’s ear. The story would slow travel around the circle. The last person would share the story with the group as then the first person would share.

How do I know if it is the voice of the angels?
I used to drive myself crazy trying to decide if I was listening to my mind of the voice of the angels. The short answer is love, love, love , love. The voice of the divine NEVER judges … NEVER NEVER NEVER. If there is any judgment then it is simple human beings trying to control other hu
