Watercolor: The Goddess Hecate

The Goddess Hecate the phase of crone.

As a triple Goddess, Hecate represents Maiden, Mother and Crone; mind, body and spirit; and birth, life and death.  As Mistress of the Night, She represents the three stages of the lunar cycle of New, Full and Dark.  Hecate symbolizes the dark within us, the part of our psyche we refuse to acknowledge.   Many ignore the wisdom, the strength and the truth of Hecate because our fear of the darkness is so strong.   Hecate is associated with the dark side of the moon, but this is the true Moon.  The Moon has no light of its own, only reflected light from the sun. Dark is the Moon's true color as is Hecate's.    Although most see Hecate as the third phase of the moon, She is actually a Triple Goddess in her own right.  She is Hecate the maiden, Hecate the Mother,  and Hecate the Crone.   Hecate can be called upon during any moon phase, as She is the One and the Three.
