How to find Your Eros And Psyche positions by Sign

Find Your Eros () and Psyche () (“Relationship” Asteroids) Positions by Sign.

The following two tables show the position of Eros and Psyche by sign. Simply find your date of birth in the Eros table to determine the sign Eros was in when you were born. Then, go to to the Psyche table to find the sign Psyche was in when you were born. If you were born on a cusp (that is, your birth date falls on a date that presents a cut-off between signs), you cannot know the exact sign by using these tables. For situations that are not very clear, click here.

For example, if you were born on December 12, 1972, find the year 1972 in the Eros table. We find that from Nov 20 to Dec 31 in that year, Eros was in Pisces. You can be certain that your Eros is in Pisces. If you were born on Nov 20, 1972, however, (or on Nov 19, 1972, for that matter) Eros could have changed signs from Aquarius to Pisces at any time on that date. You can be sure that your Eros was in either Aquarius or Pisces, but these tables can not tell you for certain which of the two signs is accurate in your case. You will need to click on the link above to determine your sign with more accuracy.

Now that you’ve found your Eros and Psyche sign positions…

Eros

How can we interpret a person’s sexual nature using their natal chart? Because sexuality is complex, there isn’t a simple formula for determining an individual’s sexual preferences, fantasies, and styles of sexual expression. Although instinct certainly plays a role, human sexuality is made complex by our intelligence and the role of society, as sexuality is primarily a social behavior. Reproduction is certainly a function of our sexuality, but humans do not engage in sexual behavior to reproduce alone.

A major element of our sexuality comes under the domain of Mars. The sign and house position of Mars in our natal charts, as well as the aspects Mars makes with other planets and points, gives us some insight into our personal sexual style. However, Venus, the planet of love, romance, and pleasure, plays a role as well. The Moon, representing our emotional nature, affects our sexuality. In fact, as sexuality is a powerful motivator and is part of our identities, we can safely say that all of our planets and points have something to do with our sexuality in some way.

When exploring the astrology of sexuality, I keep in mind that the entire chart of an individual is involved, but there are some factors that tend to play a larger role than others. Namely:

Mars. The sign of Mars shows us the style in which we express our sexual nature.

Venus. The sign of Venus shows us some of the important “trappings” and foreplay that helps us get in the mood for sex.

Moon. The sign of our Moon shows us some of our underlying emotional needs  that may express themselves as sexual fantasies and needs.

Eros. The sign position of the Asteroid, Eros, can reveal some of our erotic turn-ons, as well as the level of our erotic nature.
