The Tree Story
Pomegranate (Changemaker) – Punica granatum
This is a tree that is truly about myth and magic. The intensely brilliant vermilion of the pomegranate flower, fruit and glittering garnet colored seeds, reflect the sacred spirituality of this tree. It is the center of many stories and myths from the ancient world. When Persephone ate the seeds in the underworld it obliged her to return every year in the Autumn, bringing on the bareness of Winter, but when she ascended again she invites the new growth of Spring. This essence reflects these cycles of dying and rebirth within us all.
