Before we begin our discussion of fertility and the Goddess, let's take a minute to visualize our thoughts. Create a picture in your mind of fertility -- what represents fertility to you?

If you have included the goddess, what role does she play? If not, in what ways can you imagine the goddess interacting with your idea of fertility?

On to our discussion.
