Who is Persephone?
She is a Maiden Goddess, daughter of Demeter (the Harvest Goddess) and Zeus.
She is also known as the Queen of the Underworld, since Hades kidnapped her and took her into the underworld where she was held for 6 months.
Persephone is known for facing the shadow side of life, as her underworld experience taught her.
In modern times, being in the underworld is similar to suffering trauma.
Throughout my life there has been repeating patterns of excessive amounts of challenges occurring during a certain time of year and for about a six month duration each year, which is why I can relate to the story of Persephone.
