A Quote, a Poem, or Piece of Writing that You Think this Deity Resonates Strongly With




The quote that I most closely associate with her is:


Aristophanes, Plutus 410 ff (trans. O'Neill) (Greek comedy C5th to 4th B.C.) :"Ask Hekate whether it is better to be rich or starving; she will tell you that the rich send her a meal every month [i.e. food placed inside her door-front shrines] and that the poor make it disappear before it is even served." - http://www.theoi.com/Cult/HekateCult.html


I do a great deal of justice work. We should have more care for those in our nation and world who go without food. These are basic needs that everyone needs to have met. In her role as protector of the women and children, I can easily see how this would be something that resonates with her today.


Based on her role as protector, I wrote a piece as a call for justice.


Calling to Hecate for Justice

Hecate Hecate Hecate

Dark Mother, Mistress of the Night

I call upon you and your hounds under the dark moon

Bring forth your justice with all its might.


Hecate Hecate Hecate

I call out to you times three

Protector of women and those in need

I’m here at the crossroads, belladonna in hand

Requesting from you justice for this horrible deed.

Hecate Hecate Hecate

Hear my chant and bring forth justice

Vengeance is not what you give, nor what I seek

Bring forth your powers to protect the meek.
