Hekate

Hekate

Hekate is a Greek Goddess born to the Perses and Asteria. She is the Goddess of the sky, earth, sea and underworld, and is sometimes depicted in her triformis form. This triformis, however, does not represent the triple goddess maiden mother and crone. Instead, it has more to do with Hekate's role as the Goddess of crossroads. Hekate stands at crossroads that were once three roads, and she can see each direction. As the Goddess of crossroads, Hekate helps guide you on your journey. She is also a protector of women and children and is often invoked by mothers during childbirth.
