Re: Hekate and Owl's (repost of thread)

One story that ties into the idea of Hekate and Owl's in an general sense is the story of Apuleius The Golden Ass. A few points need to be addressed for clarification. Owls fall within the family of creature's known as Strigidae. This is loosely derived from demons known as a Strix (striges or Strix...

Hekate and Owl's (repost of thread)

Hekate and Owl’s As I search the net and various sites, I often find practitioner’s and devotee’s who have this idea that there is a connection between Hekate and Owl’s. Some suggest that Hekate uses Owl’s as messenger’s, while others suggest that she hold’s Owl’s to be sacred birds. Still others se...

Re: Hekate & Her Mysteries

I've heard that belief before, and the one who told me about it had said that he learned it in Turkey. I don't feel the same way or practice this, but the friend I heard this from was very sincere in his practice and I left him to it. It never resonated with me, but I do tend to have a notable affi...

Re: Strophalos of Hecaté or Hekate's Wheel

I concur, monsnoleedra, though I've found myself wondering how much of that is directly caused by Hekate's manifestations and insights within our respective worlds. She's been strongly present for me and pushing me to explore other avenues of magical practice as a means of coming to understand the ...

Re: Strophalos of Hecaté or Hekate's Wheel

Here's a short video of a Hekate's Wheel that has been reproduced as an actual wind chime type set-up. It's not very animated due to the heavy metal that was used and I think due to the way it is strung together. But it does give some hint to what the thing might be like if it was actually strung to...

Re: Strophalos of Hecaté or Hekate's Wheel

Excellent post, monsnoleedra and I've experienced the same. There are points at which that raw observance IS the lesson, too, which can be a little maddening. She's one of those beings that seems to love forcing a change in the way we perceive the universe around us and plays tricks with the light....

Re: Strophalos of Hecaté or Hekate's Wheel

That's a fair point, and to add to it "Virgin" originally referred to a woman whose honor could not be challenged. They could totally be beholden to a man or a woman, but their relations could not be challenged as being impure. In essence, they were seen as being beyond reproach. As the c...

Re: Hekate & Her Mysteries

Honestly, that's really rather unsurprising (to both of us, I imagine), given the wildly variable nature of nomenclature, especially around what can end up being the same "tech" viewed from different angles. Some of the terminology that gets tossed around is essentially just a different n...

Re: Hekate & Her Mysteries

Ah, I follow. Thank you for spelling this out, as you're referring to a role I'm well familiar with...just using a different name for it. For me, these acts fall under the job of Psychopomp and Priest, so "Spirit Keeper" is now a term I can associate with the role itself. Cheers. When I f...

This is a study aimed at reconsidering the origins, in the broadest sen...
