7 comments on “Understanding Hekate- Simple Devotional Rites- Introduction:

  1. Thank you for all your sharing, it is invaluable. May I ask you if you have any more information about the ephesian letters? We had some questions in our group as to their origin, power, and meanings. (some of our group are more wary than others about chanting words of power when they don’t have the complete picture of what they are!!)

    • The ephesian letters or ephesia grammata are voces magicae (words of power) from antiquity. i have an article on my german homepage about the goddess Hekate and will translate it into english…

  2. Nice article. you know i was shopping for a Hekate then realized duh my friend and student now grown up into a third makes marvelous clay statues and such so could commission one from her. I also have an old piece of driftwood from the flood which is the roots of a tree and have her already outside as the “Old Lady” and could use her and could even turn her upside down and the roots could be her arms. I also have a 250 + year old oak tree that fell out back years ago and in the base are large holes that go into the underworld. I bury dead critters in the mulch there then retrieve the bones a year later. That would be a perfect place for a Hekate altar for sure.

  3. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, it’s very much appreciated. I do have one question for you..what do you by “traditional witchcraft”?

    • Traditional Witchcraft is an umbrella term. It is used today for witchcraft that is “non-wiccan” and has its roots more in the traditional image of the witch. The witch as a person that walks between the worlds, as sorcerer/ess, spirit worker, often connected to more chtonic Gods, herbal knowledge, folk magic. Traditional Witchcraft is quite connected to the land and the underworld.
