dark & new moon altars to hekate
Blessings All!! When I got up this morning, I had NO idea what I was gonna write! I knew I was gonna write, but I knew not what! It's been a funny few days with one things and another - one thing which is pretty mad is our brass Kali statue (which we sold on Ebay) has come back to us (via a very aggressive person who has been banished...but that's another story!), but she's back! So, we had to re-assess what we were gonna do with her. I'll explain....deep in my Witchcraft practice, I decided (as I do, I am..after all a Leo!!! LOL) that any and all Hindu statues were no longer resonating with the Briton/Albion energy I was working with, so they had to go. We'd had Hindu statues all all kinds scattered around our home, because, as Yogis for many years, that's what you're supposed to do.....right??! But it was no longer working and I was getting almost shouted at by my inner Witch to get them gone!! So, we practically gave most of them away in a 'not-in-a-car-boot-sale' and other associated items and, you know, it felt good to clear out the old energy, AND to fully embrace our roots! (Although, mine are a little obscure as my Grandad's Grandad (I think that's right) was adopted - so I may have Turkish blood in my veins!)
So, yeah.....Kali is back after we thought she had found a new home! So, she still has work to do here! We decided to put her on guard duty - together with Hekate - at our threshold. I hope she enjoys her new spot....she's kinda been in a 'no-mans-land' for quite a while now!
And I'm sure Hekate minds not at all - she is after all a Titan Goddess - so.....'face...bovvered...' LOL
Hekate - her name struck a chord in me many years ago now, when I heard it in a chant (when I was still in denial about being a Witch, but used to sing Witchy chants!! Weird!!) and when I fully stepped into my Witchy-self, I knew that Hekate was my deity of choice - she had already pointed her finger in my direction!! :D
And, I feel the draw to study her more...ooooo it rhymes!! LOL I did a shit load of research when I first began (as is my nature and my passion - it's what I do!!), but I feel there is always more.....and it never hurts to know more!! Your connection to deity energy can only be strengthened by study! Also, I am writing the third Module of our paid course and in there !!SPOILER ALERT!! is a lesson on connecting to deity.....so I'd like to walk that particular path again, but with my students!! It's also a reminder of what it's like to be a beginner, and of how far I have come too :) And this time (betwixt the waning and Dark Moon) can be challenging as our energy levels can decrease.....so tapping into that energy and studying, meditating, inner reflection, planning - all those kinds of activities can help you move forward through this energy!
It's funny......writing this has turned my energy levels up! LOL I guess I needed a reminder of what works right now, at this moment, in this space! Study, writing, study and planning!! AND I do love a Dark Moon ceremony.....there is something so pure and delicious about the Moon's energy......and connecting to Hekate!!
So.....Fellow Witchy-poos, what will you be planning for the Dark & New Moon??? Feel free to comment with your ideas!!
