|The triple nature of Hecate
shown in this image reflects her rulership of cyclical phases. There are many
interpretations of the sacred number three. A few are: moon cycles--new, full and dark;
life cycles--maiden, mother, crone; realms--sky, earth and underworld. Hecates
mother was Asteria ("starry") and thus she became Queen of Heaven and Planetary
Powers. She mated with Hermes (messenger to the Underworld) to give birth to Circe, known
for her powers of enchantment. Hecate is associated with the underworld and with magic.
