I have a special bond with Hecate, she is my patron Goddess, Something about her beautiful dark energy always drew me in. I have her tattooed on my leg and her being known for her associations with ravens and dogs suits me perfectly. The raven is my totem animal and I am a dog lover.
I call her the dark mother because of her triple Goddess aspect, overseer of all worlds from above to below and in between. She has a motherly aspect that only some people have been privaleged enough to see as her darkness is similar to that of Lilith and many people fear her, but if approached in the right manner you will see a different side of her.
She is also queen of all the dark Fae, just as Gaia is the mother of light and oversees the light Fae, who also is known for her triple Goddess aspect, an overseer. I will be evoking Hecate tonight in just a bit and asking her to send me a dark faerie as a familiar and also have her imbue her energy into a ring I made in dedication of her.
The ring Was handcrafted with blue wire and crystals that form the shape of a flower and in the middle, a moonstone bead as this is one of the gemstones that is associated with Hecate, one of her favorites actually so it seemed appropriate. I will be asking her to give me some of her energy which the ring will be empowered with.
Instead of a talisman or symbol necklace to form an extra special link with her, I decided to try something different (the ring) which is not like the usual rings that other magicians use. I wanted something special as Hecate can inspire creativity and she loves gemstones so I felt she deserved something special and unique, which I think she will appreciate.
I will report back to this thread either later tonight or tomorrow afternoon if she tells me anything useful or if anything strange happens during the ritual that I wish to share. I am really looking forward to this one. I am forming my own circle of familiars which includes my two guardians as well, sort of like my own little coven but with energy based spirits instead of actual people, which I think will be stronger as people are too uncooperative, demanding, and stubborn when it comes to covens or magick circles.
