A Lackadaisical Lexicon for Laggard Logophiles
HECATE [aka HEKATE]
[noun]
Ancient Greek Ἑκάτη: an ancient goddess, most often shown holding two torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. She is variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. She has rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour (Soteira), Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul. She was one of the main deities worshiped in Athenian households as a protective goddess and one who bestowed prosperity and daily blessings on the family.
Possible etymologies: 1) from the Greek word for ‘will’. 2) from Greek Ἑκάτη [Hekátē], feminine equivalent of Ἑκατός Hekatos, obscure epithet of Apollo. This has been translated as “she that operates from afar”, “she that removes or drives off”, “the far reaching one” or “the far-darter”. 3) from the Egyptian goddess of childbirth, Heqet, howeverevidence for this is lacking.
