Starts a new cycle, a new station and from Finca Santa Barbara legends we tell this wonderful season of spring.

From classical Greek culture comes the myth of Demeter (Ceres to the Romans) and his relationship with Persephone, her daughter. In the Olympian pantheon, Persephone was the daughter of Zeus and consort of Hades (Roman Pluto, god of the underworld). Persephone became the goddess of the underworld when Hades abducted her on the ground and took her with him. Persephone had been playing with some nymphs who became sirens Demeter as punishment for not intervening. Life came to a standstill as the depressed Demeter (goddess of the Earth) searched for her lost daughter. Finally, Zeus could not stand the agony of the earth and forced Hades to return Persephone by sending Hermes to rescue her. But before releasing her, Hades tricked her into eating six pomegranate seeds, which forced her to return six months each year. When Demeter and her daughter were together, the earth flourished with vegetation. But for six months each year, when Persephone returned to the underworld, the earth once again became a barren wasteland.

In an alternate version, Hecate rescued Persephone. In other versions Persephone was not tricked into eating the pomegranate seeds but decided to eat itself. Some versions say he ate four seeds instead of six. In any case, the end result is the occurrence of summer, spring, autumn and winter.

But for us mortals, and seeing it from the point of view of science, spring is one of the four seasons of temperate zones, and one of the two seasons of the tropics the transition between winter and summer. The term comes from premium (first) and Vera (green). Astronomically, this season begins with the vernal equinox, and ends with the summer solstice.

Equinox is called the moment the two poles of the Earth are at the same distance from the sun, sunlight falling equally in both hemispheres The word equinox comes from Latin Aequinoctium and means “equal night”, ie, the days have equal to the duration of the night everywhere on Earth.
