For Hecate

20140504-091442.jpg

“Moon, shine brightly; softly will I sing for you Goddess, and for Hecate in the underworld – the dogs tremble before her when she comes over the graves and the dark blood. I welcome you Hecate, the grim one, stay by me until the end. Make this magical substance as effective as that of Circe, of Medea, and of the blond Perimede.”

~Theocritus, 2nd Eidyllion, 3rd century BCE as quoted in Witchcraft Medicine: Healing Arts, Shamanic Practices, and Forbidden Plants by Claudia Müller-Ebeling, Christian Rätsch and Wolf-Dieter Storl
