Some of you may know that I’m quite enamored, maybe even a little obsessed, with the goddess Hekate/Hecate. I’m very drawn to her and devour pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I wanted to quickly share a website that has been a wealth of information for me, Her Sacred Fires. This exceptional site is owned/maintained by author and priestess Sorita d’Este. Her website is a wonderful source for accurate information about Hekate. None of the whole referring to her as one of the triple goddesses (ie. the Crone) either! 😉
Honestly, one of the best ways I was able to connect with, and get to know the goddess Hekate, was through Sorita d’Estes’ books. It was eye opening to read the author’s experiences with Hekate as well as countless other contributors.
Hekate : Her Sacred Fires is an exceptional book for an extraordinary, eternal and universal Goddess. It brings together essays, prose and artwork from more than fifty remarkable contributors from all over the world. Their stories and revelations are challenging, their visions and determination in exploring the mysteries are inspirational, and their enthusiasm for the Goddess of the Crossroads is truly entrancing and sometimes highly infectious.
Hekate is a Goddess of great antiquity. She is primordial, powerful and sometimes animalistic – and yet, she is also sophisticated, modern and capable of adapting to different cultures. She is the Torchbearer, the Cosmic World Soul, the Guide and Companion. She is Mistress of the Restless Dead, who rules over the Heavens, Earth and Sea. She is the Keybearer and so much more. Her devotees today, as throughout the ages, include philosophers, poets, sorcerers, theurgists, witches, root-cutters, enchantresses and ordinary people.

Hekate is a torch-bearer so it was only right She is the one I associate with the element of Fire. If you’re looking for more information on Hekate, I highly recommend Her Sacred Fires, the book, the website, the FB page, and Sorita’s YT channel.
