Hello spring and hello world!
In Greek mythology, Spring is the time that Persephone returns from the Underworld and her commitment to Hades / to live above the earth and restore the blessings of her mother Demeter, Goddess of Agriculture and the Harvest / whose grief at the loss of her daughter is felt in the dark, cold barren of winter where most crops struggle to thrive.
Persephone takes upon two titles- the Goddess of Spring and the Queen of the Underworld. In one aspect she represents fertility and renewal, in the other death and destruction 🥀
Life. Death. Rebirth.
Nature accepts so gracefully these transformational cycles. Knows that it is all a turning of a Wheel.Persephone is the embodiment of the Light and the Shadow / and the oscillation between the two that keeps the Wheel turning.
I have been grateful for the respite Winter has afforded me- time to slow down, time to hide away, time to stabilise- but I can feel nature bursting back into life all around me and I know it is time to emerge and get moving!🌱
Happy spring everyone! May the energy of this season support you and everything you wish to see grow 💜
