By Marc Potts. Hekate is a goddess of the crossroads, the queen of witches, the ruler of the heavens and the underworld. She is the embodiment of darkness; the moon in it’s true color. She is the maiden, the mother, and the crone; the keeper of all vast knowledge and mysteries, wisdom, strength, and truth. She is a liberated woman, free from all male-created bonds. She is mind, body, spirit; birth, life, and death.
