It’s no secret that I’m a devotee of the goddess Hekate (Hecate). She appeared to me in a dream and left quite an impression. I can still vividly recall the dream, how I felt, what I felt… Hekate made herself known in subtle, but convincing ways over the course of the last few months. A few times I would catch the scent of garlic when we didn’t have any in the house. Other times Her name would pop up randomly while going about my day. Even though it’s been a while since I’ve felt Her presence around me, or in my dreams, I know She’s someone I want to continue to foster a relationship with even if it’s often one-sided.
Over the last several weeks I’ve noticed other symbols popping up here and there. The most notable one would be arrows. Lots of arrows! One example would be, browsing online for something completely unrelated, say perfume, and an image of an arrow would come up in a search. Then scrolling through my Tumblr dashboard, RSS reader and Pinterest feed would show arrows whether it be on jewelry, tattoos or illustrations of arrows. I felt as if this was significant and the only deity I associate with arrows is Artemis.
