Day 3 - Symbols and Icons of Hekate
Hekate's Wheel cross stitch
On Day 1 I included a list of Hekate's symbols not realizing today's post would be about them, so... a little bit of a repeat, but with some photos.
torches, keys, rope, knife, dogs, snakes, Hecate's Wheel (modern), bones (personal), pomegranates.
A necklace I wear during ritual made of snake vertebrae, amber,
moonstone, garnet, one beads, and clay beads.
I wear this necklace during every ritual, devotional practice, meditation/trance work, and spell casting when I call upon Hekate.
I wear a key pendant - an old key - always, as I feel that Hekate holds the key to all mysteries and this symbol most closely connects me to Her. I also wear a key that is bent into a ring, a gift from my husband.
For me, pomegranates and their seeds are symbolic of Hekate as well as Persephone. The food from the Underworld.
While some symbols are ancient, others come to us from seemingly nowhere. UPG? Yes, I believe so, but sometimes they are a gift, that hand on the shoulder, reminding us that She is always with us.
