Hekate: Goddess of Witches

Hekate: Goddess of Witches

Courtney Weber's book Hekate: Goddess of Witches has been praised by the likes of Christopher Penczak (Temple of Witchcraft), Ivo Domingues Jr. (Spirit Speak), Mat Auryn (Psychic Witch), Amy Blackthorn (Blackthorn's Botanical Magic), Najah Lightfoot (Good Juju), Melody Wingfield (The WitchQueen Project podcast), and Devin Hunter (The Witch's Book of Spirits). It covers an introduction to Hekate and her history, her family, her symbols, and her jurisdiction.

While it contains rituals to get to know her and to get to know yourself through her, as well as spells and rituals to invoke her power, it also covers working with the dead and with dangerous elements. This is not a book for novices or the faint of heart.

The description on the back of the book reads:

Courtney Weber takes us on a journey through the lore, legends, history, and mythology of Hekate, ancient goddess of crossroads, ghosts, and witchcraft, and also perhaps the most beloved goddess today. While exploring the relevance of Hekate for today's Pagan practitioner, Weber provides tools, techniques, practices, and suggestions for incorporating Hekate into your own personal magickal and spiritual journey.

Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of Hekate, exploring original mythology, historical context, and contemporary connotations, concluding with spells and personal rituals. The final chapter is a grimoire full of rituals, offerings, and other practices to help readers connect with this extraordinary goddess. The book also explores magickal ethics, what it means to be a witch in the twenty-first century, and best practices for successful witchcraft.
