Hecate’s Shamanic Spread

On This Day

It is considered auspicious if you hear a dog’s bark tonight, as Hecate allegedly roams the earth on this night with her pack of hounds.

Tonight is Hecate’s Night, an evening that honors this witch deity, once a great goddess with temples and shrines. Feasts in her honor, sacrificial offerings, and gifts left at crossroads pay tribute to this deity of magic, witchcraft, and necromancy.

Summation of Spread

The Hermit and Hecate are both bearers of light—Hecate with her torch and the Hermit with his lantern. Both light the way for those who are prepared to embark on their path.

Are you ready to travel between worlds? Hecate slipped easily between the realms of the living and the dead. Humans have long moved the same way using shamanic arts, the most ancient spiritual practice known to man. This spread is based upon the shaman’s three worlds: lower, middle, and upper.
