A Greek moon goddess, queen of the Underworld, and the protectress of all Witches. Hecate is the Crone aspect of the divine feminine triad, symbolized bye the waning and dark moon and representing the darker side of the Triple Goddess. She presides over all magickal arts and is a popular deity among many modern Witches, especially older female ones. In ancient times, she was worshipped at crossroads in Thessaly by occult bands of female moon-worshippers, and invoked throughout Greece by those seeking wealth and favor. To honor or summon Hecate, according to ancient Greek tradition, an offering of some sort must be left in a roadside shrine or at a crossroads as the Witching hour (midnight).
