Courtney Weber (author of Brigid and The Morrigan) offers an informed, accessible journey through the lore and history of Hekate, the ancient goddess of crossroads, ghosts, and witchcraft, and reflects on Hekate’s relevance today. Tools and techniques for incorporating this goddess into your personal journey round out the book.
Similar to her other works, Weber strikes a balance between the scholarly and the spiritual. Her exploration of Hekate combines solid research with practical, modern applications. The spiritual content is accessible to anyone with an interest in witchcraft, regardless of their faith or background. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of Hekate, exploring original mythology, historical context, and contemporary connotations, concluding with spells and personal rituals. The final chapter is a grimoire full of rituals, offerings, and other practices designed to help listeners align themselves with this extraordinary goddess. The book also explores magickal ethics, what it means to be a witch in the 21st century, and best practices for successful witchcraft.

Großartiges Buch über Hekate und das Hexentum!
I really, really love this book. Courtney Weber is a great author. This book (like her book about The Morrigan) is very well written an full of well researched information.
It's a book about Hekate and it's a book about witchcraft and being a witch. Courtney does a great job retelling the old myths and how this great goddess has been worshiped through the ages on one hand and than on the other hand she beautifully brings Hekate into the here and now.
And like i already said, this book is not only about Hekate, it's also about being a witch and witchcraft itself. It's about "my" kind of witchcraft. It's the kind of witchcraft that is inclusive, that is accessible and down to earth. A witchcraft that is for your self, but that also encourages you to get involved with the world and the people around you, that encourages you to stand up for yourself, but also to take responsibility as a part of the society.
I absolutely recommend this book to every witch out there.
