Pele is the volcano Goddess of the people of Hawaii
According to legend Pele appears just before her volcano is about to erupt as a warning to all. For while she knows that Fire can burn away all that has been created, Pele also reveres life and the renewal that comes in the aftermath of a fiery eruption. A great cleansing has occured allowing new energies to bring new ideas and creation, giving everyone the right to start afresh with no past, just the present.
In Hawaiian mythology, Pele is the goddess of fire, lightning, dance, and volcanoes. She is a daughter of Haumea and Kane Milohai and her spirit dwells inside the largest volcano in Hawaii. Hawaii honours her on 11th June Kamehameha Day for her powers of unity, protection, creativity and change.
With such a fiery origin, is it any wonder Pele's energy is direct, volatile and eruptible? One of the most dramatic goddesses of the Hawaiian mythology, Pele lives in Hawaiian hearts and minds as the supreme personification of volcanic majesty and power. Within the Hawaiian cosmos all natural forces are regarded as life forces, related to humanity by common descent from the same ultimate creative spirits. Possessing the power to create new land, Pele also has a volcanic personality. She is by nature impetuous and lusty, jealous, unpredictable, and capable of sudden fury and great violence. She can also be gentle, loving, and as serene as her forests of ferns and flowering trees. Born in the awe experienced by an ancient people, she still makes her presence felt by those who visit her domain today.
