Today is the last day of the month, and so is sacred to the great Triple Goddess, Hecate. On this day, we honor Her as Queen of the Night and the Goddess of Witches. Hecate is a protector of women, mighty advocate for the disenfranchised, and She who guards the crossroads. It is She who teaches us the ancient Mysteries. It is She who protects the vulnerable. May we wisely follow Her example.
In ancient times, worshippers would leave a “Hecate’s Supper” with specially prepared foods as offerings to Her. The offerings were also gifts to appease the restless ghosts, called apotropaioi by the Greeks. These offerings should be left behind at a crossroads at night, without looking back.
