Have I mentioned I’m writing a book? For awhile now I’ve been
threatening wanting to write a basic “Starting work with Hekate” book. I will be writing this for Moon Books Pagan Portals Series. It will be entitled Hekatean Witchcraft (working title). It’s likely to be a slim volume, mainly aimed at those who want to start working with Hekate in a witchcrafty way, as well as containing my own personal praxis with her. Though it is aimed at beginers, it will (hopefully) have more than a few gems for experianced practioners as well. It will contain some of the following:
- History of Hekate
- Hekate in the Chaldean Oracles
- Rites and Rituals including: A basic Hekatean compass round, philactery, Protective chant, Hekatean Mojo bag, tools, ancestor work, creation of a devotional key, and Hekatean animal necromancy.
- Working with Hekate though the year and festivals.
- A special section in which the reader will be given a complete Hekatean path-working for the purposes of meeting the goddess and petitioning entrance to her mysteries including an open astral temple with instructions on how to access it. This will serve as a safe place for new devotees to experience the goddess for the first time if they have not already done so. The path working will then be laid out in a format for either memorization, ritualized reading, or audio recording.
I’m aiming to have it done by September, so I’m hoping for it to be out early Winter.
I’m also writing a chapter on Hekatean Witchcraft for Moon Book’s upcoming anthology celebrating 60 years of Gerald Gardner’s Witchcraft Today.
Also, don’t forget about my Hekatean Prayer Book project! I’ve received a few submissions so far, but will need many many more if this is going to become a reality. So visualize me with a whip cracking above you yelling “SUBMIT”: The Hekatean Prayer Book Project
