I will lead you into uncovering all that has kept you bound and gagged for centuries. We will heal this together, you and I. Trust me, for I know the way, even when it is concealed by shadows and uncertainty. I am Hecate.– Sophie Bashford, You are a Goddess
Once Upon A Time
there was a Greek goddess of transformation named Hecate. Her power to live between the worlds of the living and the dead, between the past and the future, was legendary, even threatening to the almighty Zeus.
Known for her protection of women, when Hades abducted Persephone, Hecate helped Persephone’s mother, Demeter, search tirelessly through the underworld. They eventually found Persephone, however Hades would not set her completely free. Every year, he requires Persephone to stay in each realm — the underworld and on earth, for six-months at a time. As the earth ebbs and flows between seasons, Hecate stays by Persephone’s side in both realms. As a reward for Hecate’s friendship to Persephone, Hades gifted Hecate with the ability to talk to spirits.
When you are experiencing the ending of a cycle, Hecate guides you at the crossroads. In this uncomfortable space – the threshold of new beginnings, our inner wise woman comes forth to bring a mystical perspective.
The dark moon goddess reminds us to trust our heightened intuitive powers. As you navigate this transitional space, let go of your expectations. You cannot possibly know what is on the other side of this growth. Have faith that your wounds will heal, and you will come out of this experience a more mature, beautiful version of yourself.
