Want to know some Hecate invocations to use when you're ready to Call The Queen of Witches into your Circles?

This page offers a couple ancient, traditional invocations of the Queen of Witches. The first is one that I've rearranged somewhat but is true to the original in intent and language.

(See this page for more Hecate Invocations.)


Invocation of Hecate

This Hecate invocation is based upon an excerpt from the Orphic Hymns


I invoke thee, Hecate, Midnight's Lady,

Goddess of the Thresholds and the Three Ways

Of earthly, wat’ry, and celestial frame,

Of underworld and Mystery's fame,

Sepulchral, in a saffron veil array’d,

Leading spirits that wander through the shade;

Protectress of children, healer, come, be here!

Mistress of Wilderness, among the deer

With Thy crescent knife, peerless huntress: hail!

World’s key-bearer, Thy torch will e'er prevail;

The Gate between the worlds you guard by rights,

Midwife and Queen, be present to our rites;

Propitious, grant our just desires' success,

Accept our homage; this, our magick, bless.


Hymn VI: To Hekate

~ Proclus Diadochus, 5th Century (Trns: E. Vogt, 1957)


Hail, many-named Mother of the Gods, whose children are fair

Hail, mighty Hekate of the Threshold

Shape the course of my life with luminous Light

And make it laden with good things,

Drive sickness and evil from my limbs.

And when my soul rages about worldly things,

Deliver me purified by your soul-stirring rituals.

Yes, give me your hand I pray

And reveal to me the pathways of divine guidance that I long for,

Then shall I gaze upon that precious Light

Whence I can flee the evil of our dark origin.

Yes, give me your hand I pray,

And when I am weary bring me to the haven of piety with your winds.

Hail, many-named mother of the Gods, whose children are fair

Hail, mighty Hekate of the Threshold



With Bright Blessings,
