Despite her many positive associations, Hekate was also sometimes depicted as a terrifying and malevolent figure. No matter what you read and what myths say. They can be true, but from personal experience, Hekate is not a monster or a demon. She is much bigger than that. She is understanding, helpful, and what she cares about is for you to go beyond. What does that mean exactly? Well, think of her as a Goddess that wants to teach you magic, how to defend yourself, how to manifest what you want, how to not rely on others but yourself. You borrow the power from her and walk along her side. Great right? Well it is if you put the work in. Real. Daily work.

Despite her sometimes terrifying reputation, she is also revered as a powerful and benevolent force in the lives of her followers. Trust me, I know.
Now that we went over who she is. I just want to stress that working with Hekate is an interestingly different experience I’ve personally never experienced before.
Its not easy, its not difficult. It just depends how far your willing to go and whether you want to work with a system that operates as a machine. Literally. You become this machine and it gets better, faster, and works in a ways you can’t imagine.
