The PantheaCon Report: 2017 edition

Gather round stardust children for a tale of journeys with Egyptian Gods, magickal plants, Pokemon battles and a prophecy of Pie.

There is a story within each person’s experience, and …

Chöd and Hekate

“That which is called ‘devil’ is not some actual great big black thing that scares and petrifies whomever sees it. A devil is anything that obstructs the achievement of freedom. . . . Most of all, there is no greater devil than this fixation to a self. So until this ego-fixation is cut off, all the devils wait with open …

Spiritual Depression

Sometimes, I don’t want to meditate. I don’t want to look at my altars or shrines. I don’t want to fast or cleanse. I don’t want to sing adorations or compose hymns. I don’t want to serve some unseen things for which I faithfully lift my heart up in offering. I don’t want to read the books or ask the …

Hekate’s Wheel

“Shine brightly, Moon; I will softly chant to you, Goddess, and to Hekate in the Underworld – the dogs shiver before Her when She comes over the graves of the dead and the dark blood. Hail, grim Hekate, and stay with me to the end; make these drugs as powerful as those of Circe and Medea and golden-haired Perimede. Draw to …

Episode 5: The Hekatean Special

As promised, here is the long-awaited episode in which I spill the beans about Hekate. I hope this will become an annual event, growing and maturing with the show.There’s music, anecdotes, information, recommended materials…slight rants. I kept this episode all about Our Lady of the Crossroads. Below you will find links to websites and online sources, shops and artists of which …

Fire and Water, Then Earth Begins

The past two months have been a whirlwind of activity…which makes sense after 30 days of Air invocations. It ended in the culminating passion of Fire, the Will, the pentagram drawn from the heavens, that starlight straight to the belly: “I call forth the power and the presence of Fire, May the Powers of Passion, Be present within Me.” And …

30 Days of Hermes: Deity Wishes

Day 28: Something you wish you knew about this deity but don’t currently I would like to understand the connections between Hermes and Hekate, more than the obvious tasks as chthonios. He and Hekate have kinda ganged up on me here… She led me to do this work and I hope after my year to begin doing the same with …

30 Days of Hermes: Public Relations

Day 17: How does this deity relate to other gods and other pantheons? 17. As a trickster, Hermes tends to change with the ‘flavor’ of pantheon He chooses to manifest in. He traveled around the ancient world, a lot…and in each incarnation of Him, Hermes maintains this undercurrent of what Karl Kerényi explains as the ‘Hermes’ Idea’. From his classic, “Hermes: …

Prayers at the Hekate Tree

  Performed in May, 2013 after my last Rite of Her Sacred Fires. This was filmed in Tehama County, California by myself. I lived not far from here as a young girl and was always afraid of these hills. As a teenager I encountered wrathful spirits here and was forever changed. The stone walls, built by Chinese railroad workers and …

Will the REAL Hekate please stand up?

I live between two rival gang areas, near a bridge that gets ‘tags’ quite frequently; the city is actually quite good about re-painting within a week of the spray painting. Usually the gangs include roman numerals or words misspelled in some kind of Spanglish. I have been tempted to go over them with red pentagrams,  Satanic sigils or protective talismans. Maybe …
