The Return of Spring Has Begun!
“The snow has not yet left the earth, but spring is already asking to enter your heart.” - Anton Chekov
The storied tale of the seasons the Ancient Greeks tell us is that in one moment, Persephone was a just girl picking flowers, bold and beautiful. In the next, she was plucked by Hades to be the Queen of the Underworld. The sun G-d, Helios, having witnessed the kidnapping went to Persephone’s mother Demeter to tell her what he had seen. Distraught, Demeter pled with Hades for her daughter’s return. He relented but tricked Persephone into eating pomegranate seeds before her return, which in their world was a guarantee which would force her to return each year. And so it came to be, that the time Persephone was away from Demeter became one of barrenness. The world would become cold and quiet. The ground would become frozen. All the flora and fauna would disappear until Persephone’s return…
…which we wait for now.
The winter slumber is over. The arrival of Persephone is imminent. She is no longer the girl she once was. She is the siren of awakening and rebirth. She is the symbol of abundance. She whispers to you that the time for dreaming is over and the time for doing has arrived.
As the flowers bloom and you tend to your gardens, tend to your visions with the same care. Though the ground may be still covered in frost, push through. Let’s go.
