Magickal Correspondences of Pomegranate

Well known for her descent into the Underworld, Persephone eats a pomegranate that keeps her tied to Hades. Why does she happily stay and return every year?

Some tellers of the story of Persephone say that eating the pomegranate seeds damned her to be trapped below the Earth.

Others say that she gained so much knowledge, that the Underworld was no longer seen as a scary place, but as a provider of balance.

Either way, pomegranates are deliciously magickal!
