Offering candles to Eros: Greek god of love and desire. He is often depicted as a youthful and handsome winged deity armed with a bow and arrows- his Roman counterpart is Cupid and he is the son of Aphrodite, although other stories claim he was born from Nyx (goddess of the night) and the winds. 

Eros is associated with the power of attraction and is believed to inspire feelings of love, passion, and desire in both gods and mortals. He plays a significant role in various myths, including the tale of his own love affair with Psyche. In this story, Eros falls in love with Psyche, a mortal woman. She was exceptionally beautiful, so much so that people began to worship her instead of the goddess Aphrodite, arousing the jealousy of the goddess of love. In retaliation, Aphrodite instructed her son Eros, the god of love, to make Psyche fall in love with the vilest creature on Earth.

However, when Eros saw Psyche, he was captivated by her beauty and accidentally pricked himself with his own arrow, falling deeply in love with her. Despite his initial intentions, Eros could not bring himself to make Psyche fall in love with someone unworthy. Their relationship symbolizes the union of love and the soul.

Eros's influence extends beyond romantic love to encompass familial affection, friendship, and the creative force that drives life and creation. Petition Eros for help in matters of the heart. Be careful not to use love spells over someone's free will. Obsession is not cute.
