Descent

The maiden goddess Persephone stands before the entrance to the Underworld... the pomegranate in her hand a reminder of her promise to descend, to leave the world of the living, and take her place as Queen of the Dead. Each time she must make this descent, she is filled with dread and a sense of loss, and yet it is only by agreeing to face those fears that she achieves her full glory.

Do not refuse to enter your own underworld. Explore the dark regions of your psyche, the shadow self, the things you want to change. Be willing to enter the darkness in order to become the person you are meant to be.
