Hekate: goddess of the crossroads, the queen of witches, the ruler of the heavens & the underworld. She is the embodiment of darkness; the moon in it’s true color. She is the maiden, the mother & the crone; the keeper of all vast knowledge & mysteries, wisdom, strength & truth. She is a liberated woman, free from all male-created bonds. She is mind, body, spirit; birth, life & death.
