I agree that there is a jelly fish metaphor at work.

Why does she hate her mother though?
Is it because she's a methodist?
Judging Plath's life harshly??
Why is a methodist a bad thing to Plath?

The poem Medusa is not based entirely on the conceit of the Greek deity
Medusa. Plath likens her mother to the 'Medusa' Jellyfish, as the poem was
written at a time when Plath was interested in biology, specifically marine
biology. This interpretation should make the references to 'barnacled',
'tentacle', and 'ocean', clearer.
