Cupid and Psyche

Cupid and Psyche

Envious and jealous of the beauty of a mortal woman, Venus asks her son Cupid to make her fall in love with the vilest creature on earth.

Cupid agrees, but when he sees her he falls in love, as he leans over from a distance to kiss her, one of his arrows falls forward and pierces him.

As everyone continues to admire Psyche, her parents consult the oracle, which tells them to leave her on the nearest mountain, for her beauty is far too great for man. Her parents are terrified, but have no choice but to obey the oracle.

But then Zephyrus the west wind carries Psyche to a fair valley into a beautiful palace, where she is attended by invisible servants until night fall.

In the darkness of the night the promised bridegroom arrives and the marriage is consummated.

Cupid visits her every night and makes love to her, but demands she doesn't turn on the light of any lamp because he doesn't want her to know who he is.

Cupid allows Zephyrus to take Psyche to her sisters and take them all to the palace, but tells Psyche not to try and discover who he is.

 

Her jealous sisters tell Psyche who is pregnant with Cupid's child, the rumor that she is wed to a great and terrible serpent that will kill them both as soon as the baby is born.

They persuade her to kill him whilst he is asleep. That night she took a knife and an oil lamp and hid it in the bedchamber till Cupid fell asleep.

As Psyche was about to kill Cupid she recognizes him in the small light, but she accidentally pricks herself with an arrow and is filled with desire for her husband, as she leans over to give him a kiss a drop of oil falls on his chest which wakes Cupid and he flies away leaving Psyche sick at heart.

Psyche has to go and plead with Venus for her to tell her where Cupid is, Venus tries her very hardest that Psyche doesn't find Cupid, but Cupid finds Psyche and they are then wed properly.

Jupiter then gives Psyche a drink made form Ambrosia, granting her immortality.

They give birth to a daughter who they call Volaptas the goddess of “Sensual Pleasures."
