Demeter ( Greek: Δημήτηρ, Latin: Ceres ) is the goddess of grain, fertility and harvest. Demeter is a daughter of Cronus and Rhea and sister of Zeus. Her symbols are the scepter and torch.
Controller of the seasons and thus the ability to kill all life on earth. This power was evidenced when her daughter Persephone was kidnapped by Hades and Demeter went on to plunge the earth into perpetual winter forcing Zeus to intervene before she massacred all life in her grief.
Demeter is often pictured holding wheat.

Sometimes life is so unfair and has a lot of challenges to take but it doesn't mean it is already the end of the world. We struggle and experienced those things for us to become strong, aware, and responsible of our actions.
