I've never properly understood the whole Iunges (among the other Gnosticish name) portion of that ritual. The justification of their use doesn't seem to be rooted in thelema. I guess he saw a vision of Eros in his enochian workings, but that doesn't seem to justify the prominence in the ritual.

Also, based on the diaries that I've seen it doesn't seem that Crowley even really cared for it that much.

Few have, and there's a reasonable argument to be made that incomprehensibility was an authorial object there. On the other hand, I have devised not just one, but two effective visual interpretations of that part.

Eros and Psyche are the Prince-Princess dyad corresponding to the King-Queen dyad of Chaos and Babalon. Like the other pair, they have significance in the ancient Mysteries (see Apuleius, e.g.) in addition to their roles in The Vision & the Voice.
