Chtonian Greek Triple-Earth-Goddess,
representing the Maiden, the Mother and the Crone
– all aspects of the Mother Goddess.
Her origins are in Asia Minor,
where she was worshipped as the primary mother goddess.
Later transformed into a Goddess of Magic,
Moon and Night, Ruler of Ghosts, Underworld-goddess,
Protectress and Patroness of Magicians,
Fortunetellers and Witches.
Hecate, Greek goddess of the three paths, guardian of the household, protector of everything newly born, and the goddess of witchcraft — once a widely revered and influential goddess, the reputation of Hecate has been tarnished over the centuries. In current times, she is usually depicted as a “hag” or old witch stirring the cauldron.
But nothing could be further from the image of Hecate’s original glory.
