«After her abduction, Persephone had the freedom to chose whether she ate or not the symbolic pomegranate seeds. Eating them, the myth said, was choosing to stay in the underworld; rejecting them, was going back to the surface. Pomegranate seeds, the very same seeds that explode like a red orgasm when the maturity of the fruit breaks the virginal wrapping. Persephone ate them, ritually sealing her union with Hades, and crowning herself as Queen of the afterlife».
“Un espejo cósmico” by Gonzalo Perez, chilean psychologist and astrologer.
