Hecate’s Witch’s Cabinet Spread

On This Day

The chief goddess presiding over magic and spells, Hecate is often depicted as a three-figured goddess, connecting her with the Triple Goddess of Maiden, Mother, and Crone.

Hecate, the ancient goddess of magic, witchcraft, night, the moon, ghosts, and necromancy, had two Roman days held in her honor. Today was one of them. Associated with crossroads, borders, and doorways as the overseer of the space where two realms meet, Hecate is the patron goddess of many witches.

Summation of Spread

Hecate often carries a torch to light the way in the underworld. Her torchlight and fierce magical attributes connect her to the Queen of Wands. This queen’s wand and flower symbolize her vitality and beauty, which she does not hesitate to use as a weapon. She is encouraging and stimulates creativity around her in subtle yet highly effective ways.

Hecate’s association with poisonous herbs and plants makes for perfect inspiration in the Witch’s Cabinet Spread. The questions are based on the items you’ll find on hand in any magical person’s home.
