I have my witchy box from Tamed Wild coming this month & we get an amulet for our bracelet to represent Persephone. As most know I work with Brigid, but to wear the amulets there’s a ritual involved & I don’t want to just do the ritual & wear the amulet. I’d like to know what each God/Goddess represents & have some kind of idea of what I’m wearing. I hope that makes sense.
Anyway, I don’t know if anyone here works with Persephone. She is a dual deity. The daughter of Zeus & Demeter. The story is that while she was picking flowers in a field, Hades abducted her to be his Queen & she ruled the Underworld. She was also the a fertility Goddess. She spent 2/3 of the year with Hades & because of her mother’s heartache, she spends 1/3 of the year with Demeter on Mount Olympus which coincides with Spring through the harvest. When Persephone is with Hades, that is the Winter, when the earth is barren.
Other names that she goes by include: Kore; Persephoneia, Persephassa, Persephatta, Pherepapha, Periphona, Phersephassa
The plants associated with her are Pomegranate, Asphodel, Narcissus
Her symbols are: Scepter, Torch, Seeds, Sheaf of wheat
The ritual that we are doing this month involves ancestors also & Persephone which makes sense because she rules the Underworld with Hades. It will also be a good time for me to brush up on my ancestor offerings & maybe get that apple on there @MeganB.
