Hecate is known as the night-wandering Goddess of crossroads and witchcraft and prophesy. In Rome she’s known as Trivia and was one of the original Titans, a Goddess deep and far-reaching, a force to be reckoned with. Although she is considered a dark Goddess, her most ancient manifestations are associated with the mysteries of life, death, and rebirth, and as a Goddess of early agriculture. The fertility of the fields she holds sway over reveal the secrets of the deep earth from where life was witnessed to have risen up. She shows us these mysteries in the forms of crops, and animals that rise from the ground such as snakes. Her realms are those of earth, sea and sky as she crosses between the worlds seeing the past, present and future simultaneously.
