“Halloween decorations are rife with symbols of the Crone goddess, and these trendy dark and gothic trappings are great for working transformation magick with her. Consider those ebony and amethyst candleholders, sparkling black tapers, candles shaped like skulls, silk but real looking ravens and crows. This Samhain, why not go all out with a Crone altar dedicate to the Greek goddess Hecate? Hecate is a Triple Goddess and also patron of Witches, sorcerers, and magicians, Tonight the veil between worlds is at it’s thinnest. Spirits walk, the Old Ones are out among us, and magick is ripe. Call upon Hecate for the wisdom to work with these types of energies.
Samhain has come, the veil between the worlds is thin,
Chilly winds now blow, and fallen leaves do spin.
With this Crone altar, I celelbrate your special time,
This Samhain spell is now cast with the sound of rhyme.
Hecate, light my path on this magickal night,
Grant me your courage and grace, wisdom and insight.”
