November 16: The Night of Hecate


November 16 traditionally is celebrated as The Night of Goddess Hecate.

Hecate is the Goddess of Witches so to speak but Hecate is more than that.

Over the past few days I have seen three sets of crows flying.. another symbol of Hecate.

Hecate’s Chant:


The Holy Night Above Me

The Shadowy Underworld Beneath Me

The Sacred Moon Before Me

The Howling Queen Behind Me

The Goddess Hecate Within Me
