A young Persephone is the archetype of the Maiden, the virgin enthusiastic. She is portrayed on the right side of the design with a growing plant next to her, representing her vegetal soul.
We find the Mother, in the next stage, symbol of instinct and intuition. Demeter, goddess of harvest and fertility is a perfect depiction of motherhood, the sentient soul from the central figure.
Hecate is the deity related to witchcraft, represented by the snake and the torch. Hecate is the portrait of the Crane, the feminine wisdom and experience of the intellectual soul.
These three figures are related to the myth of Persephone and his premature marriage.
She was kidnaped by her uncle Hades to be his wife in the Underworld, corrupting her chastity and purity. Searching for her daughter, Demeter invaded the domain of Hades. In its eternal Darkness she lost herself. But there was a light in the hopeless hole. Hecate and her burning torches allow the mother to find her child and make a deal with the lord of the Underworld.
Even nowadays, there are a continuous worship of the triple deity, exalting all her power and wisdom.
