Working With Hekate During The Full Moon

During the full moon, we call upon Hekate to assist us in clearing our past, releasing our fears, and opening ourselves to new possibilities. We ask her to help us gain clarity in our lives, to help us transform our inner worlds, and to allow us to move forward with courage and confidence.

It is said that Hekate helps us to overcome obstacles and challenges that stand in our way, and to achieve our goals. In addition to being a benevolent Goddess, she is also a fierce warrior. When we summon her, we invite her to help us take charge of our lives, to lead us into battle, and to fight for justice.

I am an eclectic witch - I've been practicing since 1974. As a student of the occult, working with astrology, tarot cards, runes, and numerology, I found that this was a very comprehensive and well written text on working with Hekate during the full moon. Highly recommended. - Gail Sager

Great read - a must have for anyone interested in working with the Goddess during the full moon! Highly recommended! - Luis Meyer

Elemental correspondences aren’t necessary for most spells, but they can be extremely helpful to boost the effectiveness of a spell or ritual. Because of that, it is helpful for witches to learn everything they can about the elements and how to call them.

Here are some ways to figure out whether a plant is ruled by Fire or not:

Planet correspondences: Fire element plants are most closely related to the Sun or Mars, astrological planets that are ruled by Fire.

How it lives or travels: Fire plants tend to thrive in full sunlight or in the hottest of summers. Tropical or desert plants are a great example.

Fragrance: Spicy or strong smelling plants like cinnamon or ginger are assertive and powerful, like the element Fire.

How the plant looks: If it looks like fire or the sun, like sunflowers or dragon’s blood, it’s a Fire element plant.

Color: Red, gold, and orange plants tend to be Fire plants.
