In neo-Pagan witchcraft the God and Goddess are the divine forces and the very essence of the craft, they are the Great Father and Great Mother whose limitless energy brings forth all life. They embody the living biosphere of the planet and the forces of the elements; they are the creators and destroyers. She, The Goddess, is the Queen of Heaven, she is the moon, the source of magical power; she is emotion, intuition and the pyschic faculty. He, The God, is the sun, the source of masculine energy; he is the raw force, wisdom and law.

Underworld Hecate Statue

Hearing from the utmost depths, the dread Goddess approached, all entwined with fearsome serpents and leaves of oak, amidst a shimmering blaze of torchlight; while all around her chthonic hounds bayed shrilly, all the meadows trembled at her footfall, and the nymphs of marshland and river cried aloud.

So enters Hecate moving through the night. The only Goddess powerful enough to travel the three worlds: heaven, earth and underworld.

This image comes from the site of the famous Eleusian Mystery School. It is reconstructed from a pediment carving at Eleusis, Greece. The rites concerned Hecate leading Persephone back from the underworld with her torches to embrace her mother, Demeter, and bring Spring back to the world. A caring and personal guide, Hecate show us the way to and from her Mysteries. She is a key-holder and light-bringer, protector and transitioner. Gatekeeper and guide. Images of Hecate often guarded the doorway to the inner sanctuary of the Mysteries. Here she hurries through the night looking back to ensure we follow and do not lose our way at the crossroads.
