Hecate is a goddess in Greek religion and mythology. She was variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, dogs, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. In the post-Christian writings of the Chaldean Oracles, she was regarded with (some) rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour, Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul.  She was one of the main deities worshiped in Athenian households as a protective goddess and one who bestowed prosperity and daily blessings on the family.

You spin the thread around your finger and
with every new soft layer of wool on your knuckle
a brittle layer of your old self peels off.
The hero you’re chasing doesn’t know it yet but
you’re armed with more than your beautiful smile and
the moment he feels the steel split his spine will be
the moment when you and your brother have won:
because the sister of a monster has her own claws
and they’ll all know yours when the time comes.
keep spinning the thread, ariadne | (h.c.r.)
