Dear 13 Moons family, My apologies for not writing sooner but when my order arrived (Thursday), I was so excited that I quickly planted my nose in one of the books and lost all track of time (and apparently my manners). Thank you so much for the fast (super fast) service. A special thanks to Sandy for continually answering all of my questions. Your guidance and wisdom is truly appreciated! XOXOXO and Blessings!

Hecate With Torches Statue

Hecate: The Light Bearer
From the Eleusian Mystery School: gate-keeper, key-holder, she guards the door to the inner sanctuary of the Mysteries. The only goddess powerful enough to travel the three worlds, heaven earth and underworld. Also she is the Helper of childbirth and life changes.

Hearing from the utmost depths, the dread Goddess approached, all entwined with fearsome serpents and leaves of oak, amidst a shimmering blaze of torchlight; while all around her chthonic hounds bayed shrilly, all the meadows trembled at her footfall, and the nymphs of marshland and river cried aloud. So enters Hecate moving through the night. The only Goddess powerful enough to travel the three worlds: heaven, earth and underworld.

This image comes from the site of the famous Eleusian Mystery School. The rites concerned Hecate leading Persephone back from the underworld with her torches to embrace her mother, Demeter, and bring spring back to the world. A caring and personal guide, Hecate show us the way to and from her Mysteries. She is a key-holder and light-bringer, protector and transitioner. Gatekeeper and guide. Images of Hecate often guarded the doorway to the inner sanctuary of the Mysteries. Here she hurries through the night looking back to ensure we follow and do not loose our way at the crossroads.

Reconstructed from a pediment carving at Eleusis, Greece, 480 B.C.E.
6 inch resin statue, walnut shell color finish.
