Maternal love, bond, feelings, nutrition, emotional.
The Demeter women are the “Mothers”. Women who feel deeply attached to their children. They are the love of their life and they feel adoration for them. They have a great maternal instinct to care, nurture and protect. They are defined as “women with their feet on the ground”. They always worry about everyone having what they need: a soup, a hug, a permanent invitation to “go home”. For them it is very important to be close to those they love, to be heard and to be able to share their feelings.
Demeter, also known as Ceres in Roman times, was venerated as the mother goddess of Persephone and abundant crops with a spike of ripe wheat. The myth of Demeter speaks about the deep bond between mothers and daughters. The love between Demeter and Persephone was so great that it made them inseparable. When Persephone was kidnapped by Hades, god of the underworld, Demeter sought her from all corners of the earth and stopped the seasons of the year in expression of her pain. Finally he found her with Hades and they agreed that Persephone would spend six months underground (autumn and winter) and six months with her mother making spring blossom.
