Goddess of Magic and Triple Crone | Adored by Zeus | Powerful |
I am HEKATE (Hecate), goddess of magic, the night, moon, and Ghosts. I am the only child of the Titanes Perses and Asteria from whom I received her power over heaven, earth, and sea.
I assisted Demeter in her search for Persephone, guiding her through the night with flaming torches.
Three metamorphosis myths describe the origins of my animal familiars: the black she-dog and the polecat (a mustelid house pet kept by the ancients to hunt vermin). The dog is the Trojan Queen Hekabe (Hecuba) who leapt into the sea after the fall of Troy and was transformed by me. The polecat is either the witch Gale, turned as punishment for her incontinence, or Galinthias, midwife of Alkmene (Alcmena), who was transformed by the enraged goddess Eileithyia but adopted by me.
I am usually depicted in Greek vase painting as a woman holding twin torches. Sometimes I dressed in a knee-length maiden's skirt and hunting boots, much like Artemis. In statuary, I am often depicted in triple form as a goddess of crossroads.
My name means "worker from afar" from the Greek word hekatos. The masculine form of the name, Hekatos, was a common epithet of the god Apollon.
I am identified with a number of other goddesses including Artemis, Selene (the Moon), Despoine, the sea-goddess Krataeis (Crataeis), the goddess of the Taurian Khersonese in Skythia, the Kolkhian (Colchian) nymph Perseis, the heroine Iphigeneia, the Thracian goddesses Bendis and Kotys (Cotys), the Euboian nymph Maira (the Dog-Star), the Eleusinian nymph Daeira and the Boiotian nymph Herkyna (Hercyna).
