Demeter (Greek) or
Demeter/Ceres bequeths a cold,
dark winter as penalty for the capture of her daughter by Hades, who took her to
rule the underworld at his side. But the Goddess keeps hope alive by holding
grain stalks and serpents as a sign of perpetual renewal when Spring celebrates
her daughter Persephone's return. Demeter celebrates the Mother-Daughter Bond.
In Greece, all-important and life giving agriculture is presided over by
Demeter. The Eleusinian mystery religion centered on her worship and on
reverence for her lost daughter Persephone who was kidnapped and torn from her
mother as the sheaf in Demeter's hand is reaped from the bosom of Mother Earth.
Although Demeter rescues her daughter from the underworld, winter dark and cold
is a sign of her grief.
