Persephone is the Goddess of interstitial spaces—between life and death, Autumn and Spring. She descends and ascends in a continual cycle of spiritual death and rebirth. Persephone was the perpetual Maiden, whom all the Gods fought over in the bright starry heavens, until she ate the seeds of the forbidden fruit, and Hades stole her away to the Underworld. Persephone falls in love with her own dark spaces but always finds herself returning to the sun’s light in Spring. She is the Queen of the Underworld who is also a Goddess of the Earth; she embodies the dark mysteries of the soul.
