This week, my ritual is being done in honor of Hecate. Hecate is a goddess that is often misunderstood by people, and she is often viewed as a “dark” goddess. However, my experience with her was anything but. She is a goddess of crossroads, and a guide along the path of the unknown. To me, she seemed like the appropriate deity to work with as we transitioned from 2014 to 2015. My omens seem to indicate that the path I am on can be a positive one with hard work, but that the timing is important, as is taking responsibility for my actions. It is an omen of hard work, but positive outcome if I’m willing to put that effort into it.
“Hecate, goddess of the crossroads,
and patron of magicians,
You who light the pathways
in the darkest nights
With your name, I continue down this path.
Come forth and dwell in this space.
“Hecate, great goddess of new beginnings,
shining your lantern on the path for those who are lost,
You who help the ancestors find their way,
and carry the knowledge of sorcery and magic with you.
With your name, I seek to choose the right fork of the crossroads.
Come forth and dwell in this place.”
“Through you, may I learn to see my own path.
and through you, may I learn to help guide others toward their own.
Through you, may I find comfort in magic
And with you may I find light in the darkness.
Hecate, magnificent goddess,
Come forth and encounter this rite.”
