Priestesses Caroline Wise and Carrie Kirkpatrick are running a workshop called Hecate's Wheel - A Workshop of Magic and Transformation in London on Saturday, November 25.
Facilitated by Goddess Enchantment Workshops and Training, the event runs from 10.30am to 6.30pm. It costs £55, which includes light refreshments and all you need to make wonderful things.
Known as the Goddess of the Crossroads, the Goddess of the moon and the earth, of weathering storms and lighting the way, Hecate is the mistress of magic, spells and protection. She was venerated as a Goddess, appealing to the people of Ancient Greece and beyond. Her popularity has not waned over the centuries. Today she remains one of the most popular Goddesses in the Neo-pagan and Goddess Movement and she is accessible both as a guide and teacher in all things magical.
She is the ‘Granter of Wishes’, and offerings referred to as ‘Hecate’s Suppers’ were made to Hecate at the Crossroads. People would petition her and ask for their wishes to be granted. As torch bearing goddess of doorways, she can inspire new projects and new directions in life. As key holder, she can aid in the opening the ways forward, and revealing what is hidden or hampering your progress.
At the workshop you can learn about Hecate’s many aspects, her totem animals, her plants and symbols. As well as exploring how these can be relevant and useful to you in your life and work, those attending the event will create magical talismans from clay to take home.
The details about the workshop say:
"How do we find her in this land? As above and so below, during the day we will draw in Hecate’s lunar manifestations, and those of the deep earth, as guides for you on your path today."Numbers are limited to ensure a personal and intimate environment within which participants can engage in deep personal magical work. The day will include: Talks on her aspects, visualisation exercises, ceremony, oracles, talisman making, candle magic, and discussion…
