Hades and Persephone

The myth of Hades and Persephone is all about you(or the human race) and the
way we treat nature. Persephone is the daughter of Demeter, the Goddess of
nature. In the myths they both symbolize nature, young and old. Other myths
symbolize this with maiden, mother and crone. Nature is always represented
by the female, being old and young represents cycles of all nature. People
saying this myth is about love and abduction are way off.

In Greek myths, Hades and the underworld is the human race. It is us in this
body of ours. Hades falling in love with Persephone is us falling in love with
nature. The myth states that it is one of the rare times that Hades came out of
the underworld. Him coming out of the underworld to pursue her is symbolic
of the human race(as a whole) rarely observing and enjoying nature. Just by
doing this Hades instantly falls in love with her and wants to trap her. There is
no better symbolism for the way we treat nature. We think we can trap her,
conquer her and control her. Boy are we stupid. Hades and Zeus cause the
ground to split open, Persephone slips beneath the Earth, and Hades stole her
to the underworld where he made her his wife. The myths go on about how
Persephone was unhappy, but after much time, she learned to love the cold-
blooded Hades. Again, a perfect analogy for the way we treat nature and her
putting up with us.

Demeter begging her brother Hades to give back Persephone is showing what I
have said in my work previously. You are nature, you are her family. Demeter is
the goddess of nature and she is asking her brother Hades to release
Persephone. This is where the myth is incorporating the seasons into the story.
Demeter searches for nine days and on the tenth day she sees the sun-god
Helios. Helios tells Demeter that Hades took Persephone into the underworld.
Demeter asks her brother Hades to return Persephone. He agrees, but she has
to eat a pomegranate and return to the underworld four months of every year.
This part of the myth is showing Persephone(nature) leaving the underworld
for spring and then having to return for winter.

I think this myth is giving away a couple other occult things. First, it is
showing you how to reach enlightenment. The pomegranate symbolizes the
egg and the 9 in nine days symbolizes sperm and looking back. So you have the
masculine and feminine energies along with doing shadow work. Persephone
is the goddess of the underworld, so now we have the sacred feminine needed
to execute shadow work. Last but not least we have the number 10 in the tenth
day of searching. 10 is the symbol of man and god or woman and goddess
merging. Second, I think this myth is giving away that it’s what humans did in
the past that has caused the seasons. Remember, Hades (humans)lets her leave
and when he does we have spring, summer, and fall. When she comes back to
the underworld it is winter. I showed in previous work that the earth had no tilt
until after the war of the gods (See Lemurian Magic). It was because of this war
the earth has seasons and this myth is giving it away. We can’t undo what is
already done, but we could stop trying to conquer and dominate nature. If the
human race would just figure out we are here to take care of nature and not try
to dominate or control her, we might be able to write a myth where Hades
saves the world.

The American Literature canon was once dominated by the American Adam
theme (man AGAINST nature) but for a time, has moved a bit to working WITH
nature. I hope this continues. Nice post, gserpent!
