Psyche [sy-kee]: the Greek Goddess of the soul who was born a princess with a human-like nature. After betraying Eros (also known as Cupid, the Greek God of love and sex), she was forced to complete four nearly impossible trials set by his mother, Aphrodite. Empathetic to her plight, she was helped by creatures along the way and completed them all. Psyche made her way back to Aphrodite, but let her curiosity get the best of her, opening the box from the final task that supposedly contained Persephone’s beauty. Instead of beauty, she found the essence of death and instantly died. Eros found her dead on the slopes of Mount Olympus, and swept her up taking her to the peak. He was impressed by the lengths she would go to show her sorrow and brought her back to life as a Goddess making her the personification of the soul and officially married her.
The symbol of Psyche is two butterfly wings, and is often represented by symbols associated with her brave search for truth and understanding. Psyche invites humans to be strong and secure, especially when others judge them. The Psyche necklace calls in the magic of the butterfly Goddess, bringing psychological growth, transformation, and a soul guided by love.
