• About Hekate

    The goddess Hekate was one of the most significant dieties of the ancient world. Her history stretches back across the millenia. We find traces of her in the recent past, through into the Renaissance - stretching back through the Byzantine and Roman Empires, Hellenistic, Classical and Archaic Greece through into the Greek Dark Ages - and beyond. Hekate has been with us for at least three thousand years.

    She was a liminal goddess who was present at all the boundaries and transitional moments in life. She was also an 'evil-averting' protector and guide. Her triple form emphasized her power over the three realms, these being the heavens, sea, and earth. Her primal nature was seen in the many animal heads she was depicted with, each emphasising different qualities of her manifold character.

    Some of her well known titles include:

    •Chthonia - earthy one
    •Dadouchos - torch bearer
    •Enodia - of the ways
    •Kleidouchos - key bearer
    •Kourotrophos - child's nurse
    •Phosphorus - light bearer
    •Propolos - companion
    •Propylaia - before the gate
    •Soteira - savior
    •Triformis - three bodied
    •Trioditis - of the three ways

They were about storms, wind, rain and water. I had had dreams about weather before and normally understood their meanings but these were different.

    In each dream I was walking outside in a wonderful, beautiful day. Sun shining, birds singing, people enjoying what seemed like a day in the park. Then as I walked toward my home, the skies began to darken to an almost total black. There was no sounds, no birds, no wind, no people. Then as I walked into my house I could hear the TV going. The local weather person was talking about three dangerous storms coming, one right after the other, and that were going to fatal. Three hurricanes. I had not lived in Florida long so I really didn’t know what to think, except I trusted my...Continue Reading

    Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
    A tree that looks at God all day,
    And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
    A tree that may in summer wear
