Invocations to Hecate ~ Queen of all Witches
"O HECATE, TRIPLE-FOLD GODDESS, THOU
WHO ART MAIDEN, MOTHER,CRONE AT ONCE
JOIN ME! O HECATE, WEAVER OF LIVES,
KEEPER OF HOUNDS, GUARDIAN OF THE GATE,
COME TO ME! O HECATE, I DEDICATE THIS NIGHT TO YOU.
I KINDLE YOUR SACRED FIRE AND INVITE YOU AND
LOVED ONES WHO HAVE PASSED OVER TO BE WITH ME
THIS NIGHT. IN PERFECT LOVE AND PERFECT TRUST,
I HAVE CAST THIS CIRCLE IN PREPARATION OF YOUR COMING.
COME TO ME HECATE AND JOIN ME THIS NIGHT.
HECATE YOU ARE
You are the Moon engulfed by the obsidian veil
The beauty swallowed by pounding time.
You are the overhead stars that glare with ice eyes,
the night without stare beneath the soil.
You are the Ravenís wing, the prowling Owl,
the bat whose cry shatters the blindness.
You are the scent of smoldering sage,
the blade edge that cuts the umbilicus, the
dark-skinned dancer of endings.
Hecate, Goddess of phantoms, of shadows play
Whose body divides the sun lit days
She from whom all Gods and men were born
She we seek when the veil is torn.....
Be present Goddess with mysteries abound
Let the darkís wisdom of mortals be found."
