You are PERSEPHONE, Greek Goddess of Spring!

PERSEPHONE was the goddess queen of the underworld, wife of the god Haides (Hades). She was also the goddess of spring growth, who was worshipped alongside her mother Demeter in the Eleusinian Mysteries. This agricultural-based cult promised its initiates passage to a blessed afterlife.

Like her, you are responsible for bringing much growth to the world during springtime, but also have a mischievous and troubled dark side - one that is easily unleashed once those you despise have tested your patience.

You are EOSTRE, Anglo-Germanic Goddess of Spring!

You are EOSTRE, Anglo-Germanic Goddess of Spring!

Also known as Ostara or Eastre, Eostre is the Germanic Goddess of spring and dawn. The modern holiday of Easter - originally the name for the spring Equinox, but later subsumed to the Paschal calendar for the Christian resurrection holiday - is named for her. The name "Eostre" (Old Germanic "Ostara"), is related to that of Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn, and both can be traced back to a Proto-Indo-European goddess of dawn.

Like her, you bring a colorful, vibrant creativity to everything that you do, and are known amongst your friends as the pinnacle of friendship. Your nurturing presence is felt wherever you go.

You are BRIGID, Celtic Goddess of Imbolc!

Brigid was a goddess of the Tuatha Dé Danann. She was a daughter of the chief of the gods, The Dagda, and was the bringer of the Green back to the world with her day of Imbolc (the early Celtic Spring). She was also known as a goddess of healers, poets, smiths, childbirth and inspiration - all qualities that you yourself possess in spades.

Her name means "exalted one". This article by Branfionn NicGrioghair explores the story of Brigid and the later Christian Saint, St. Brigid, who is still honoured to this day, especially in Faughart, her birthplace, and Kildare, where she founded a monastery.
