Demeter/Ceres Demeter controls the wheel of the year. She is the Earth Mother, Goddess to farmers, and mother of Persephone. When Persephone disappeared into the underworld, Demeter was inconsolable. As the source of all growth, the earth withered as Demeter mourned for her daughter. She took a job as nursemaid to Metanira, Queen of Eleusis. When the Queens daughter (Baubo) saw her crying one day by a well, she tried to comfort her, but without success, despite many attempts.Finally, she exposed her Vulva to Demeter. This made the goddess laughter, and the earth responded with new growth. Shortly after this, Persephone was restored to her mother, and Springtime came to the starving earth. Her greatest festival, shared with Persephone, was at Eleusis, a three day festival that culminated around the time of the Autumnal Equinox (Mabon). Demeter was worshiped in fireless sacrifices, demanding all offerings in their natural state. Honeycombs, unspun wool, unpressed grapes, and uncooked grain were laid on her altars. She encourages care and respect of the Earth. Give thanks to her for a bountiful Harvest.
Eastre A Teutonic lunar Goddess, Eostres chief symbols were the rabbit (she was often seen in this form at the full moon), and the egg (representing the cosmic egg of creation). She is the source of the customs of "Easter Eggs" and the "Easter Bunny".The name Eostre is said to be related to the word east, which many believe makes her a dawn goddess The goddesss original name has been lost, for the name of her springtime rising of the sap festival was translated into Latin, before the Roman legions left in the 5th century, it would be reasonable to suppose. In the 8th century, Bede wrote : Eosturmonath has a name which is now translated "Paschal month", and which was once called after a goddess of theirs named Eostre, in whose honour feasts were celebrated in that month. Now they designate that Paschal season by her name, calling the joys of the new rite by the time-honoured name of the old observance. . The word Paschal comes from the greek word pascha - meaning Passover. Hence the drawing together of so many different cultural festivals at Ostara/Easter.
Hecate/Carmenta Hecate is the goddess of the Moon, magic and of abundance. She is defender of children, and provider of food and riches. She is the midwife. She is the goddess of the crossroads, and later became known as the Goddess of the Underworld. In Pre-Classical Ancient Greece She was represented as a young woman clad in a long robe, holding burning torches. She is the Crone but also the Maiden. She brings abundance as well as storms, and has a key role in birth as well as death.
Over the centuries she has been portrayed more and more as a dark goddess, but this comes through a misunderstanding of her power and complexity.
When you have a life altering decision to make, she may be the one to consult.
