April…month of setting boundaries.
Just a few days ago a snake slithered across the road, inches in front of my feet. A sign of change, rebirth, shedding ones skin to emerge a sleeker, new version. I wasn’t surprised to receive this message and sign from this spirit animal.
Given my current circumstances, I was also not surprised that Hekate crossed my path, although I didn’t know about her until now. She is known as a goddess in Ancient Greek religion and mythology, often shown as holding a pair of torches or a key. She is also shown as triple bodied for her ability to see the past, the present and the future.
Hekate is associated with crossroads, entrance ways, night, light, and magic to name a few. She is the goddess of boundaries and is associated with being “between”, frequently characterized as a “liminal” goddess. She stood guard, protecting the individual passing through dangerous liminal places. She can easily traverse between the realms.
It is said to work with Hekate when you find yourself at a crossroad. When you are ready to truly embrace your power. To help guide you into higher realms of consciousness. As a torchbearer she can help bring light to the shadows.
The signs are in abundance and I feels like I am being guided and reassured by unseen forces. A few hours before Hekate surfaced, a glance to the microwave flashed the number 444.
