Today, November 6th 2014, is the full moon. I do a ton of research on the moons, their correspondences, and a lot of other things involved with rituals for this time of the month. This month has many names, as all the moons do, but The Mourning Moon really spoke to me.
How did you become first aware of these Deities?
Hekate – I have always known about Hekate, perhaps not under that name, but my family has always honored the Goddess of the Crossroads. My mother considered her the Universal energy, that which everything comes from. The first time I heard the name Hekate was in a mythology book in elementary school. I instantly felt a deep connection with the Goddess.
Lucifer – I heard about the Devil in the Bible before I could even understand what was going on; my mom told me all about the concept behind the Ultimate Evil, but it never felt right. He felt so much more complex, and sort of sad. He was like the antagonist you hated to love – I just couldn’t help but feel deeply for him.
A basic introduction to this Deity(Deities).
Below are simple introductions to the two Deities that I am currently working with and building my relationships with. At this time, words are escaping me and I hope to flesh this information out soon, in order to better understand both of them and their roles in my spiritual practices.
So, I know I talked briefly about doing the 30 Days of Devotion for Hekate over on TATWP, however I have not really been keeping up with it because of the problems I keep facing. I am here to start, from the beginning, again. This time, though, I am going to add in my recent reconnection with Lucifer. I don’t have a posting schedule right now, mostly because I don’t have much of a schedule. I will likely be developing a schedule once I start work, so that I can more easily devote time to my deities. So, here are the things that I will be covering over the next while.
I have a lot of photos to post – some are already edited, I just need to make them smaller for the blog, and the others were just taken yesterday so I have to get those processed through the program. Do not fret, I have not forgotten about my photography! I did, however, sell my telephoto and standard zoom lenses, so I am working with my macro lens only right now. I have to say, I love the depth of field that the macro lens provides, it makes for some amazing pictures.
I want to introduce you to someone that is very special to me – by the title of this post, I assume you think this is regarding my birth mother. In some ways, you are correct – she was there during my conception, the 9 months my physical mother carried me, and at my birth. She has been by my side my entire life.
I want to be completely candid with you all: My life is complicated and may seem filled with hallucinations and strange occurrences. I accept your accusations of being insane – I do have a diagnosis that confirms clinical insanity, on some level. But I feel that the experiences I have are very real, and not mere hallucinations.
