    I think I m on a personal pilgrimage to read absolutely everything there is to be found about Hekate, starting with all of the offerings at Avalonia books This is a guide to working with, honoring and worshipping the goddess Hekate within a Wiccan inspired framework I m a Wiccan, so that works for me Those of you who are looking for history based, recon methods and ceremonies will not exactly find that here, but Tara Sanchez does provide a solid bibliography, citations, and appendices that w I think I m on a personal pilgrimage to read absolutely everything there is to be found about Hekate, starting with all of the offerings at Avalonia books This is a guide to working with, honoring and worshipping the goddess Hekate within a Wiccan inspired framework I m a Wiccan, so that works for me Those of you who are looking for history based, recon methods and ceremonies will not exactly find that here, but Tara Sanchez does provide a solid bibliography, citations, and appendices that would help you to locate the sort of information you re looking for I would also recommend those readers pick up a copy of Hekate Liminal Rites by Sorita d Este It s filled with historic practices and lore To be fair, Sanchez is very clear about what attributions and symbols are historically related to the perception and worship of Hekate, and which ones came from her own gnosis There is a fair bit of 101 type information in here, but it s solid information Sanchez provides information about keeping a record of your rituals and experiences, internal work to train your mind and sharpen your focus, rites of purification, creating an altar, creating ritual garb, and creating sacred space and designing rituals Plenty is here to inspire and inform She has a system of gestures to be used during ritual that I thought were a very nice touch There is also a chapter devoted to the subject of knot magick and phylacteries, a lengthy and impressive chapter on Hekate in the symbolism of the Major Arcana, and another lengthy and extremely impressive chapter about creating an oracle that I won t even try to explain here She also teaches you how to use dice effectively as a means of divination There s plenty here to keep anyone occupied for months, so don t let the short length of this book fool you There is a lovely section filled with hymns and mantras to Hekate some historical and some modern I think they re all very lovely and would work well within ceremonies or on their own as prayer The last section is a Night Battle group ceremony based on Ginzburg s account of the Benandanti and Malandanti If I only knew of enough people who were of the right mindset and persuasion to take part, I would consider doing this myself The overall feel seems to be inspired by the mystery plays of the Mediterranean region.I hope she considers writing another book about her work at some point

    Somewhat usefulI wouldn t call this good, but it s not bad either It has some very useful information that simplifies or breaks down practices for beginners in working with deity, but some of it is just overblown and somewhat uselessA good little book to have alongside better texts.

  4. Nightshade Nightshade says:

    I have been working with Hekate a bit lately and all I can say is when I was reading this is just seemed off to me Plus it had a strong Wicca feel to me and I don t proclaim to Wiccan, so that was a bit disappointing.

  5. Cyndi Brannen Cyndi Brannen says:

    Good book about practicing as a Hekatean,of a theurigal style than witchcraft Worth reading.

  6. Becky Shelton Becky Shelton says:

    This book deals with as Hekate in her Greek Aspect I personally see her way before Greece, but hey She adapts all of the Greek Magick and resolution in this Working I am not going pig the whole Greek as a powerhouse of the best, because we know how they obtain their knowledge Guess there s my bias with th been, but I can still appreciate the Greek contribution over time So let s move on.She talks about the Priestess of Hekate and their use of black and white Magick, which she could have jus This book deals with as Hekate in her Greek Aspect I personally see her way before Greece, but hey She adapts all of the Greek Magick and resolution in this Working I am not going pig the whole Greek as a powerhouse of the best, because we know how they obtain their knowledge Guess there s my bias with th been, but I can still appreciate the Greek contribution over time So let s move on.She talks about the Priestess of Hekate and their use of black and white Magick, which she could have just said magic, and it was an intricate part of their everyday life She goes on to talk about the Greek concept of heaven and hell and the way they viewed the afterlife, which was a very simplicity concept to them She hits on what they considered the Daemon to which was the first of great men pay, as taught by Plato her reference So that was an interesting section to read.Now her invocation and evocation need work She states l was originally taught that magicians never invoke, only witches , which is interesting that they delegate the two and they do different workings The theory is that when one invoke there is a strong chance that risk control can be given over to the entity you invite to share your headspace, and losing control is something a magician never does Now I think we have to lose some control to gain it, if that makes sense I m not taking about going bat shit crazy, but getting deep in touch with the divine and having those crazy thoughts, that lead to sane workings So it married me wonder are they scared with sharing with the divine, because they may not be strong enough to trust themselves, or have they invoke the wrong person and got hemmed up Either way, she goes on saying how she never invoke and when she does its a rarity and its only two Weird.The Tetrahedron Exercise reminds me of the Mer ka ba meditation with extras to it Directions on making the typical Grecian river is included, for those who want to have a hands on experience The design is interesting and looks fun to try Ritual gestures, practical exercises and pronunciation are added for your benefit The normal incense making, banishing rituals are included, as are circle constructions and the calling of the 4 quarters Instructions for ritual tools, including phylactery and lemnae are include.She has for elemental meditations for Hekate Hekate of Air, Fire, Water, and Earth and the accompanying meditations These are extremely nice and useful and very workable Very easy to add into your workings with her already I skipped the reading of the meditations because I found myself spinning up out my body, and I didn t feel like leaving in the middle of reading lol.She hits on planetary days and hours, the associations, deities for each day too She goes a little into the orbit of the moon and some technical info, and I skipped it It wasn t necessary as I m not living by the hours She instructs you on during and making a mirror, explains the tarot in reference to Hekate.This working is completely based off of the GPM, and if you work primarily with them it s a breeze The Hecate that I work with is damn near different, but I can utilize the meditations very easily So all in all, it was a decent book, and one that you could add to your library

    This red book of magic has blown me away.Tara states in her foreword What I have attempted to achieve with this book is to provide a framework, an exemplar of what can be done, and how As an old mentor once said to me, I can give you a map, but the map is not the whole territory This is a map And what a map it is The cartography of the book can and should be used as a template for serious practitioners seeking to connectdeeply with any cultural, heritage based godforms.The first pa This red book of magic has blown me away.Tara states in her foreword What I have attempted to achieve with this book is to provide a framework, an exemplar of what can be done, and how As an old mentor once said to me, I can give you a map, but the map is not the whole territory This is a map And what a map it is The cartography of the book can and should be used as a template for serious practitioners seeking to connectdeeply with any cultural, heritage based godforms.The first part of the book provides a brief history of 1 Hekate s lineage and 2 the world view of those who first set down her lineage concerning the Otherworld and its denizens The second part of the book is devoted to Practices In this part of the book, Tara builds a magical framework from the bones outward for those new and experienced who wish to work with Hekate Tara is also generous1 in providing a wealth of practical exercises in each section that compliments the history and theory behind each subject discussed ex the seven Sacred Vowels There is a lot of theory included in the book, but Tara s style of writingas a confidant and fellow traveller instead of a university lecturer makes it easier andenjoyable to read.However, I cannot at this time attest to any of the practical exercises Like the many other books I use in my practices, I read the book first, and now will go back to begin to use it I am looking forward to this cycle.1 Again from the foreword I have for a long time been conscious of the difficulty that exists for the newcomer, especially those who may not have access to local and reputable occult bookshops, moots and open circles etc Instead of adding her voice to the bleating chorus of when the student is ready the teacher will appear Tara lives up to her vows and freely and gladly gifts the lessons to those who seek them and are willing to put in the hard work of seeking

    must say that this is the most practical book on getting to know the Titan Goddess Hekate Author, Tara Sanchez does an effective job of giving the reader a nice little background on this goddess and then gets into the practical details Most books do not give the reader so many practical details on getting started The neophyte newbie is usually forced to crawl around on their knees in the dark trying to figure things out, this book takes you from the beginning level all the way to the interme must say that this is the most practical book on getting to know the Titan Goddess Hekate Author, Tara Sanchez does an effective job of giving the reader a nice little background on this goddess and then gets into the practical details Most books do not give the reader so many practical details on getting started The neophyte newbie is usually forced to crawl around on their knees in the dark trying to figure things out, this book takes you from the beginning level all the way to the intermediate Great job Tara The book has plenty of sources for further reference and also demosntrating the information as authentic.The book has plenty of practical information The new student is started off with step by step instructions on how to creat altars, keep a magical diary and create and consecrate new tools Some nice little goodies include incense recipes, mediations and how how to do divination.Some of the instruction of how to create a sacred space, knot magic and miror making could use illustration as they were a bit hard for me to follow Giving instrction in step by step or bullet form would be a major improvement i would also change the order of hat is taught Circle casting should be taught first because you will cast a circle before most workings especially consecrating tools and statues Good idea to tell the reader which operation require circle casting.Great book
