January 31st is a feast day for Hekate.
Hecate has been characterized as a pre-Olympian chthonic goddess. She appears in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter and in Hesiod's Theogony, where she is promoted strongly as a great goddess. The place of origin of her following is uncertain, but it is thought that she had popular followings in Thrace. Her most important sanctuary was Lagina, a theocratic city-state in which the goddess was served by eunuchs. Lagina, where the famous temple of Hecate drew great festal assemblies every year, lay close to the originally Macedonian colony of Stratonikeia, where she was the city's patroness. In Thrace she played a role similar to that of lesser-Hermes, namely a governess of liminal regions (particularly gates) and the wilderness, bearing little resemblance to the night-walking crone some neo-pagans believe her to be.[neutrality is disputed] Additionally, this led to her role of aiding women in childbirth and the raising of young men
Hekate's symbols include the toad (conception) , torches (guide) , keys (gateways and transitions) , snakes (guardian and underworld) , dogs (guarding and hunting) and possibly owls (night and prophesy) . The cypress tree is sacred to her as well.
We welcome solitary Wiccan, degreed Wiccan, the curious, the questioning and everything in-between. Ritual format will be Wiccan, calling forth both male and female deities that are associated with her.
