Goddess of the Week: Hecate

Ok, people, we have to send good thoughts to Addey. She lost her job and now she needs a career goddess. I thought about this a lot, Addey. I wanted to find you a goddess that signifies not only prosperity (bills must be paid!), but also a goddess that can help you through the kind of journey you are going through right now. So I'm giving you the Greek goddess Hecate.

Hecate was a major player in her heyday, basically early, early Greece, where she was seen as a deity who could bring both prosperity and help around the house. So that should cover some of your needs.

Nowadays, Hecate is mostly remembered as goddess of the crossroads. Whenever ancient travelers would come to a crossroads they would stack up stones as way to honor Hecate in the hopes that she  might help them choose the right road. And that seems like it is part of what you need to do right now, Addey: choose the right road.

Will you try and find the same sort of job? Something different? Or is that even a luxury to think that way? Do you need to take the first job you can land? Talk about your crossroads! Who wouldn't want a little divine intervention dealing with such issues?

Hecate reminds us to slow down. Think about your choices. Sometimes that means recognizing that you do HAVE choices. There is seldom only one road. So what will it be? Where will go? Where will your choices lead you? And who can you count on to give you some Hecate love? Who is going to help you through this journey?

I wish I could help you answer those questions, Addey, but this is your journey. Just remember to see it as such.

Channel this goddess: When the road forks, when you are looking for a job, when you are making tough decisions, when your GPS breaks.

Need a goddess? I got goddesses! Post a comment saying what you need or want a goddess for. Then check back in a week or two and see what you got. It's fun! It's free! It's not quite Siri but Siri doesn't do goddesses. Yet.

Hecate, and all your friends, are companions on your journey Addey. May you find resurrection in an occupation/job that is new, exciting, and pays enough to meet your needs.

I can definitely channel Hecate these upcoming weeks. Looking for a job is no walk in the park, and I need some help, from anyone, anywhere!

Reading Margaret's pearls of wisdom is much more enjoyable than having to pile up stones.

All the best with your journey, Addey.

You know, in the years I've followed your goddess teachings (and I'm happy to say, it has been at least four), I've learned an implied truth. And that is, the difference between the goddesses we want on our side, and the goddess we aspire to be. My BFF goddesses would be the ones who find jobs, keep our house tidy, publish our books. The goddess I want to be is the one who sits on a cushion and plays a lute; she has an unlimited supply of raw oysters with a squeeze of lemon, and lots of boyfriends who want nothing more than to kiss her hand and paint her toenails.

Ms M said...

Good luck to you, Addey, and may Hecate show you a promising path!

Addey said...

Oh thank you SO much Margaret! Hecate is _just_ who I need. Not only am I at a crossroad, but I feel like I'm at a crossroad of crossroads. But yes, slow down, take one crossroad at a time and I'm sure to get there, wherever that is, in my own time. :-)
