The previous article gives you some ancient poems for invoking Hecate. The invocations on this page have been written by me for various purposes that you might wish to invite Hecate to your Circle.

Here you will find original invocations for...

  • Magick (also a general invocation)

  • Decision-making

  • A birth

  • An impending death

I hope you find them useful! As with all Wiccan "texts" feel free to adapt them to suit your particular needs in the moment.


Invoking Hecate For Magick
(or as a General Invocation)

Hecate! Crone Goddess! Grandmother of the Moon!
Wearing the black robe of night, the infinite mystery
Within which all may be known
If one has one's own eyes

Owl-eye Goddess, seer, walker in the dark,
Hold high Your lantern to share Your light with Your Priest/ess
Blessed Black Bitch, I hear Your hounds baying at truth,
Leading me onward, and I follow with Your name writ on my soul

You hold the key to all knowledge, to self-knowledge;
Hecate, Glorious, open the door to my soul!
Let me grasp the slippery knife, by my choice, by my will
Rather than by circumstance and delusion

As Your hound, I search and sort truth from illusion
I choose to cut the cords that bind us in any direction
For You tell me the mystery of right time
I will to see clearly and act from my power

Mighty Hecate, grant me the boon of power
Ultimate power: the power over the only enemy:
That which slides from awareness, from responsibility,
From the bald fact that I am not I, but all

Help me win through to Your ultimate Laws —
That I am what I desire, and
That I can harm none but myself
I can serve none but Love

Hecate, Transmuter, transform the slippery shadow within me
To the brilliant Sacred Dark of Your essence

Hecate, Great One, bless me, Your Priest/ess,
And bless this the work I do in Your name

Blessed Be!


Invoking Hecate — Reusable Opening

Hecate, Wayfarer, Path Finder
Mistress of the Thresholds we all must cross
Goddess of the Triple Crossroads where destiny meets choice
Keeper of wisdom, teacher of the wise
Destroyer of illusion and Guardian of the Gates
Hail, Owl-eye Goddess of Magick and the roads of Mystery!
I Your Priest/ess ask You:

(Fill in the rest of your invocation here, or simply end with —

I Your Priest/ess invoke You —
Please join my Circle, and bless my work here today
Welcome Hecate!
Blessed Be!)


Invoking Hecate For a Decision

Hecate, Wayfarer, Path Finder
Mistress of the Thresholds we all must cross
Goddess of the Triple Crossroads where destiny meets choice
Keeper of wisdom, teacher of the wise
Destroyer of illusion and Guardian of the Gates
Hail, Owl-eye Goddess of Magick and the roads of Mystery!
I Your Priest/ess ask You:

Lend me Your lantern, to reveal and clarify my options
Lend me Your key, to open doors that I thought were barred
Lend me Your Bitches, to sniff out the best Way
Lend me Your knife, to free me of the choices not claimed

Oh, Owl-Eye Goddess, show me the Path
Made precisely for my soul's feet
Leading to the best possible outcome for me and mine
And in service to the Earth

Blessed Be!


Invoking Hecate For a Birth

Hecate, Wayfarer, Path Finder
Mistress of the Thresholds we all must cross
Goddess of the Triple Crossroads where destiny meets choice
Keeper of wisdom, teacher of the wise
Destroyer of illusion and Guardian of the Gates
Hail, Owl-eye Goddess of Magick and the roads of Mystery!
I Your Priest/ess ask You:

We are gathered here to separate two souls from one
To welcome a new mortal form to the Earth and to this mother's arms

Open the Gate from the spirit world, and allow this one to enter
Draw aside the Veils and help this new life cross
Hold aloft Your lantern so this one may find the mortal path with ease
And bless this knife as Your own to cut away the spirit world
And release this babe into the joys of the Earth

Hecate, Guide across the Thresholds and through the paths of life,
Bless this young one now and forever with wisdom's insight
And Your Divine guidance
As You bless all who honour You

And guide this mother, (this father,) all this child's family
To greater wisdom and compassion as this holy new path unfolds

Blessed Be!


Invoking Hecate For a Death

Hecate, Wayfarer, Path Finder
Mistress of the Thresholds we all must cross
Goddess of the Triple Crossroads where destiny meets choice
Keeper of wisdom, teacher of the wise
Destroyer of illusion and Guardian of the Gates
Hail, Owl-eye Goddess of Magick and the roads of Mystery!
I Your Priest/ess ask You:

We call You here to witness as this one prepares to pass
From the mortal realm of pain and strife
To the blessed realm of the soul's life

We ask You to stand ready to guide her/him across
To ease her/his fears and sufferings and doubts
And reveal the waiting Light

We may not, any of us, be ready to say goodbye
But we trust in Your timing, for You know when it is right

And we know from experience that no one is ever really gone
We rejoice to know her/his trials draw, for a while, to a close
That peace and joy and love wait for her/him across the Veil

We entrust her/him to Your tender arms
We release her/him to her/his eternal bliss
And ask You to help her/him easily across

Please, dear Hecate, shine Your lantern bright
So that we may still see each other through the Veil
And bless us who remain, as much as possible,
With memories filled with more love and laughter than tears

Blessed Hecate, Be here now!

Blessed Be!


With Brightest Blessings,
