30 Days of Devotion to Hekate: Day 16

16. How does Hekate represent the values of Her pantheon and cultural origins?

It's kind of hard to go into her cultural origins since her origins can't be 100% pinpointed. Some give her origins as Macedonia, Thrace, Caria, some say she was an Egyptian Goddess Heqet.

Over the years she's gained attributes from the various places and people that have worshipped her. The Greeks called Her a guardian and She guarded their homes, Goddess of Witchcraft and Magic, of those "other". The protector of every newborn. The Romans called her Trivia. That's also where the Hecate/Hekate split comes from. Some pagans (particularly wiccans) view her as a Crone, and some also view Her as a triple goddess. She is ever evolving and gains new attributes all the time.
