Moons of Hecate Talisman
“I am Hecate, Goddess of ancient Greece, guardian of the unconscious, mistress of the night, the dark side of the triple moon Goddess. I am Hecate, Queen of all witches, sorceress, seductress, psychic, crone, hag. I ride through the night sky, bathing the landscape in supernatural light. I am Hecate, I command earth, sea, and sky. I control your menstrual cycles; I am the ultimate feminine.” During medieval Times, pagans were being tortured based on their belief in the Goddess and their practice of rites and rituals. Patriarchy reigned and the fear of feminine power caused the church to demonize Hecate. She was made infamous as the crone; old, wrinkled. Ugly, warts protruding from her nose and chin, mysterious, dark and loathsome. Hecate is associated with the dark side of the moon; but this is the true moon. The moon has no light of it’s own, only reflected light of the sun.
Like the moon, Hecate is dark. She symbolizes the dark within us, the part of our psyche we refuse to acknowledge. We ignore the wisdom, the strength, and the truth of Hecate, because our fear of the darkness is so strong. In Western society we value beauty, youth and money above all else. We hide our elderly, our sick and our poor so we can pretend to be immune to such human conditions, but Hecate reminds us of the truth. Hecate sees through the facade of societal amenities. Hecate is not deceived by social standing, education, or titles, and wealth.
She is patroness to those on the outskirts of society. She believes not only in second chances, but thirds and fourths. Her mantle of healing covers the forsaken, when the rest of society turns it’s back. As the triple goddess, Hecate represents maiden, mother and crone; mind, body and spirit; and birth, life and death. As mistress if the night, she represents the three stages of the lunar cycle, new, full and dark. As ruler of the menstrual cycles, Hecate can wreak havoc in the lives of women and the men who love them. Hecate rules over childbirth, menstruation and menopause.
All the powers that men fear most! Hecate enforces feminine independence from masculine influence! But men and women take heed! Hecate is a Goddess for all. She is the great equalizer. Invoke Hecate into your life and rid yourself of dualistic beliefs; black and white, good and bad. In truth and wisdom. Hecate can propagate balance and neutrality into your life and bring forth compassion for the self and all who share the human condition
