Ever listen about Hecate Summoning Ritual? Hecate (Hekate) is an ancient moon goddess presiding over the powers of magic, spells and witchcraft. She was worshipped by many ancient peoples, most notably the Greeks and Romans.
It helps if you are in a meditative state when calling on a deity, but you do not have to be.
It would help if you have one of your deity’s symbols. For instance, some of Hecate’s symbols are the moon, keys, black, silver, darkness, crossroads, the number three, dogs, etc.
Hecate Summoning Ritual is easiest to call on at night. Since she represents each phase of the moon, it doesn’t have to be at a certain time of month.
Make sure to hold the symbol and focus on it.
As I often say, it is the powers and attributes that matter the most, not the name under which the spirit is known in any given culture.
Hecate finds its equivalents in the goddesses of magic found in other cultures, such as Isis in Egypt, Baba Yaga in Slavic tradition and Cliodhna in the Celtic tradition.
Due to our deep historical and spiritual connection with the classical world of Greece and Rome, Hecate is the name under which this spirit is most commonly worshipped and summoned still to this day.
In order to help you summon Hecate successfully, I’ve decided to write this summoning guide.
It contains ritual instructions that you can follow on your own for evoking or invoking this goddess.
Hecate Summoning Rituals step by step guide
Invoke Hecate if you want the goddess to work through you, changing you from the inside-out, bestowing you with greater physic power, magical prowess and intuition.
As an example, invoking Hecate can make all of your spells, conjurations and potions more effective. Hecate Summoning Ritual
Also helps you in Hypnotizing others can also become easier, not just individuals but entire groups of people.
Another important effect of a Hecate invocation is the increased interested in all things magical.
As well as the increased ability to understand the deeper causes and connections of events that occur in your life and the world at large. Hecate is as strict as she is kind, so do not cross her.
Hecate Summoning Ritual can bring along death as she can life. She does not forgive easily and she holds grudges, so beware. Yet, she represents the Triple Goddess and holds enormous power and protection.
If you’re on her good side, she will shield you against harm and bring along creativity and guidance. She is darkness.
How does Hecate appear when summoned?
As with all Hecate Summoning Ritual, it’s impossible to predict the manner in which the summoned spirit will appear. It’s impossible because it doesn’t depend solely on the summoner’s wishes.
The spirit ultimately decides how it will manifest. The same is true when summoning gods, goddesses, angels, demons or lesser spirits such as familiars and various servitores. Some common ways in which Hecate may appear:
- manifesting as a vision/hallucination
- appearing in a regular mirror, a scrying mirror or a scrying ball
- speaking to you
- speaking through you
- appearing in your dreams the first night after the ritual – especially if you’re trained in lucid dreaming and dream recollection
- Providing supernatural effects during the ritual.
Some supernatural effects during a Hecate Summoning Ritual that have been reported by practitioners are:
- The candle flame shooting upwards or moving in different directions without any natural reason.
- Objects in the ritual space moving around or levitating.
- Sudden heat or coldness in the room, a gust of wind passing through the ritual space
Although all doors and windows are closed, creaking and hissing sounds that grow in intensity while incantations are repeated.
Why it need a occult practitioner
Those who’ve engaged in occult practices for long enough have witnessed at least 2-3 of these “supernatural” effects occur during a Hecate Summoning Ritual.
They are not exclusive to Hecate. Instead, they are signs that one is opening a portal between our material reality and the subtler realities that surround it.
The portal typically remains open for a short period of time. Ordinary human perception would estimate it as a couple of seconds or minutes.
Hecate Summoning Ritual and the duration of these “supernatural” effects coincides with the time that the portal remains open.
How long the portal can remain open depends on the magical power of the summoner. Performing a summoning ritual in a group setting, where collective energy is used for this purpose can create more impressive results.
Even so, one should refrain from using these “effects” as an estimate of whether a ritual is truly successful or not.
What matters is achieving the real life goal for which you required Hecate’s assistance in the first place. Whether the goddess bestows you with her gifts is all that matters in the end.
Now, let us move to the most important part of this guide, the rituals themselves.
First, let us begin with the preparatory phase. This phase is necessary both for evocation and invocation rituals.
Preparing for a Hecate Summoning Ritual
I recommend using the following cleansing process before your ritual. This will reduce your physical and mental concerns, which can weigh heavy on the spirit.
Many times we don’t notice the impact our diet, quality of sleep, sexual activity and the mental contents that we consume has on our general wellbeing and spiritual strength.
But all magicians, witches and mystics worth their salt know the importance of these factors and are rigorous about them.
that’s not what we are here for at the moment. So, I recommend doing these 6 simple lifestyle modifications for at least 7 days prior to your Hecate Summoning Ritual:
Eat small and light vegan meals. If that’s not possible, try to go vegetarian, pescatarian or at the very least don’t consume red meat.
The less fleshy foods that you consume, the less your physical body will get in the way of your mental clarity.
Perform a water fast for 24 hours before the Hecate Summoning Ritual. That means not consuming any food or drinks except water.
Obviously, consult your doctor if you’re unsure about the safety of this.
Sleep in a pitch black environment and for at least 8 hours every night. Go to sleep before midnight.
Pull down the shades and enjoy complete rest and rejuvenation.
Don’t engage in any sexual activity, with others or with yourself. Remove such thoughts and distractions from your mind and from your environment for the time being.
Eliminate all social media, tv shows, competitive games and other mental distractions. Don’t trick yourself by watching “educational content” or “developing skills”.
Break all your social activity for a while
You are taking a break from screens and from content that has nothing to do with your rituals and magic. When you feel bored, be with yourself, observe your mind, use a notebook and write down your thoughts.
If it becomes too painful to be on your own and you need someone else’s thoughts to distract you from your own, read grimoires and esoteric material. However, don’t engage in any Hecate Summoning Ritual or spell that you find therein.
Save yourself for the grand ritual that is just a few days away.
Meditate or do energetic exercises such as qigong, tai chi and yoga whenever you have the time and the willpower during the day.
When your mind goes blank during meditation, try to visualize Hecate as you imagine her to be or by using popular depictions of her that align with your own imagination.
This is a simple way to get more familiar with the energy that her presence might provoke in you, preparing you for the ritual that’s to come.
Also remember that the more you meditate, the easier and more enjoyable it becomes, so make the effort in the beginning and it will definitely pay off.
Doing all of this Hecate Summoning Ritual require a significant commitment if it were a permanent lifestyle change. But remember, this is only for 7 days.
It will make you stronger and sharper, and it shows to Hecate your devotion and your willingness to make some personal sacrifices to be in her presence.
As the saying goes “no pain, no gain”. But very likely you will find much value in this process and will incorporate some of its aspects into your daily life later on.
The Best Time to Perform a Hecate Ritual
The answer to this question varies depending on which magical system or advice you follow.
Some recommend doing it at midnight, 10 pm, and 3 am or only on the full Moon! I know of one coven that performs the ritual only on the Cold Moon.
Personally, I am not dogmatic about the timing of my rituals. It’s true that certain times provide a greater “atmosphere” and align better with the energy of the spirit.
But such circumstantial considerations tend to be more about your own preference than what the spirit needs in order to manifest.
It’s your personal limitations that create a large list of demands for a ritual.
A god can summon forces out of thin air, day or night. As humans, we are more conditioned by our environment and so we should use it to our advantage the best way we can.
We don’t have to be dogmatic about it and make things even more difficult than they’d be if we disregarded all the rules! It’s the same as creating laws and regulations that suffocate a community instead of allowing it to thrive.
So, the only general guideline that I agree on is that night-time is preferable to daytime.
Hecate is, after all, the goddess of night and moon, necromancy, ghosts and a host of other things cloistered in darkness.
The dozen or so times that I performed Hecate rites and rituals and felt her presence the strongest was around midnight.
This is my preferred time for performing most of my summoning rituals, especially when conjuring a night-time spirit.
Hecate Invocation: The Blood Serpent Ritual
Required ritual tools:
- an altar
- a ritual dagger
- a red rose
- one black and one dark-red candle
- red wine
- a chalice
- black storax incense
- red/purple ritual robes
- red/purple body paint
Set up the altar
Begin Hecate Summoning Ritual by dressing in your ritual robes and setting up the altar.
You can use a desk or a similar object if you don’t have an altar.
Place the chalice in the middle, fill it up with wine. Place the black candle on the left, red candle on the right of the chalice and light them
Place the dagger and the rose in front of the chalice.
There should be enough space between each item in order to prevent accidents
Mark the ritual space
A magic circle marks the space in which you are conducting your ritual, thereby separating it from the outside world. Its purpose is to contain the spirit and the energy that’s raised.
In case of an invocation you should always stand inside the circle so that there is no separation between you and the spirit. This will allow the spirit’s energy to permeate your astral body more easily.
Salt is traditionally used for making a ritual circle. This a simple process of Hecate Summoning Ritual:
Pour salt around the altar and an adequate amount of space around it. There should be enough space for you to stand and conduct the ritual.
Use a stick or a similar object to make a well-defined circle.
Get “in the zone”
Lay down for a while outside the ritual circle, either on the floor or a piece of furniture. Use the following breathing method to prepare your mind for the invocation. While laying down breath in the following pattern:
- Inhale 4 seconds
- Hold breath for 4 seconds
- Exhale for 4 seconds
- Hold for 4 seconds
Set a timer and do this 10 minutes.
This is a Hecate Summoning Ritual technique recommended by therapists for treating anxiety. It can also work well to place you “in the zone”, so that you’re more present while observing your inner transformation.
When you’re done, get up and say to yourself out loud or silently: “I’m awake!”
Now, using the paint, draw a circle with a horizontal line crossing it on your forehead in the third eye region (between your eyebrows).
Perform the invocation
With your breathing balanced you are now feeling completely mentally and physically stable.
Internal and external distractions are no longer causing a disturbance so you can be fully present in the moment.
Go to the altar Hecate Summoning Ritual, take the dagger in your hand and move it counterclockwise in a circle around the candles and the chalice with the tip pointing downwards as if you were creating a vortex of energy.
While doing so, repeat the following incantation 7 times:
Hecaten ad haec aras accedet! Hunc calicem cum spiritu tuo Hecate fascinare!
If you don’t know Latin, don’t worry too much about the pronunciation. You can use Google Translate or a similar app to hear it though.
Next, pull petals off of the rose and place them in the wine. Then close your eyes and slowly, passionately consume the wine with the rose petals.
Imagine that you were consuming the essence of Hecate Summoning Ritual.
Feel her essence moving down like a blood serpent, from your throat down into your stomach where it finds its rest. Be aware of the warming effect it’s having on your mind and the rest of your body.
With Hecate’s essence consumed it still has to be activated. To do so, chant the words of power, also known as an enn:
