Oracle: Demeter & Persephone
Booklet: Dea, Rites and Mysteries of the Goddess
By: Olivia Robertson

Invocation of Demeter:
Queenly Demeter, Lady of the Golden Sword and glorious fruits, bringer of seasons and giver of good gifts, bestow on us from your basket of corn the seeds of wisdom.

Oracle of Demeter:
A grain of wheat is reaped in silence. The Teacher gives knowledge: the student through meditation receives that which is given, and by inner understanding transmutes knowledge into wisdom. This is the perennial teaching of Eleusis. That which was true is forever the truth, but knowledge manifests in different ways in the course of cycles. Look into the past and you will know the future: for the future lies buried in the past; and the past through action in the present brings about the future.

Invocation of Persephone:
Come to us, Persephone, Maiden of Spring: Olympian Goddess, Queen of the souls in Hades. Bestow on us the Blessings of the Deities above: be with us when we face the Mysteries of the Depths.

Oracle of Persephone:
Harken to my words with your inner ear: and see with the Eye of Vision. The seed falls from the plant into the depths, there to draw within itself the elements of growth. When spring comes the plant grows through the earth into the bright air. The great trees and the small wild flowers alike give their gifts of colour and scent and good food. The birds make their nests in branches and the bees and butterflies are enchanted by the many coloured flowers. But when the autumn comes what then of the plants and flowers? Their seeds fall into the dark earth, as I did: and they are reborn on earth, as I was. But their true Selves enjoy eternal beauty with Demeter and all Deities: as I do, now and for ever more.
