Best Answer

Venus hated Psyche passionately because of her great beauty. People were beginning to ignore Venus's altars and they instead sacrificed to Psyche, calling her the new goddess of beauty. Furious at this mere mortal girl who was stealing the homage that Venus thought rightfully belonged to her, she attempted to have her son Cupid make Psyche fall in love with a horrible monster. When Cupid ended up falling in love with Psyche himself, this only served to make Venus even more furious; that her own son would adore her worst enemy.

Who are Psyche's enemies?

Well, Psyche doesn't really have any enemies. She has Aphrodite/ Venus who does everything possible under the sun to keep Psyche and Eros (her son) apart. Talk about a terrible mother-in-law. But eventually, Aphrodite forgives Psyche. However, there's more to it than meets the eye. Aphrodite was originally angry with Psyche because men were leaving her temples to go worship Psyche. (She was so beautiful) So, she already had a reason to be angry with her, then Eros goes and falls in love with Psyche. I guess you could also say that Psyche's sisters are her enemies, because they are the ones who convince her that her husband could be a monster. This is what prompted Psyche to lose her faith in her husband, and Eros was angry and flew off. But don't worry, because they got back together again.
