Her Sacred Fires!

I gathered my wand, cauldron, Hekate's statue and other paraphernalia, then out the door I went to drive to meet Raven. We would celebrate the Rite of Her Sacred Fires. 

Last year, after my ritual, I went to leave my offerings at the hedge and found a toad in my path, waiting and unafraid. This time, a toad again made an appearance as I walked to the car. She waited for me to take notice and say a few words, then hopped off into the bushes. I thought it was interesting as I haven't seen any toads in a good long while. Then, as I opened the car door, a beautiful teal colored dragonfly flew around my head, tapped the car a few times and then disappeared into the sky. Ah, I said to myself, the magick begins.

And so it did. Raven and I had a lovely ritual at her home. We added an additional working and some divination to our rite, then took our offerings to the crossroads outside her home. A luminous moon lit our way, a gentle breeze stirred the trees to speak; an enchanted and enchanting night . Yes indeed, magick was there.

Hekate of the Three Ways, I invoke You,
Maiden of the Land, the Underworld & the Seas as well,
Chthonia, Enodia, Phosphoros,
Propylaia, Atropaios, Propolos,
Adorned in saffron robes, shining in the Night,
Nocturnal One, Keeper of the Keys, Lady of Torches,
Hekate,  hear me.

Blessings nine!


  1. Very magickal indeed! I love your hekate statue, I am trying to find one myself.
    Blessings on a wonderful ritual!

  2. I'm envious of you. I so hoped we'd have a clear evening here So I could watch the moon rise. We've had so much rain and clouds this Spring that it feels like I haven't seen the Moon for months. Can one become Moon sick?
    I also wanted to send my Congrats for the newest member of your family.


  3. @Sherry - I think you can find that statue and a smaller one at Sacred Source.

    @Paulette - That moon was beautiful! And thanks for the congrats! XO
