The following is an Invokation to Hekate as a form of the Triple Goddess who rules the two-week period from the waning to dark Moon. This is a time for ritual banishing, releasing, introspection and justice. Hekate is a manifestation or reflection of Nuit-Isis-Ma'at; Kal;, Lion-headed Sekhmet —as well as Olodumare, Oya (pronounced "oh-yah"), and Manman Brigitte of Africa-based religion.
The Goddess was often depicted in ancient times as a three-headed wolf with a woman's body, or simply as a barefoot woman accompanied by a pack of wild hounds. This last has an obvious correspondence with Artemis and Diana, Lunar Goddesses and Patronesses of hunting.
The Rite is performed at Midnight during a Dark Moon at a lonely crossroads or cemetery. The petition along with specific request or goal is written on parchment. Light a black, red or white candle in the center of a lunar-design circle—a vévé (pronounced "vay-vay")-- and recite the Invokation while pouring wine around the circle as a libation. Burn the petition, allowing the ashes to scatter, or blow in all four directions.
