Hymns to Oceanic Hekate

Hymn to Hecate Einalian

[Collaborative work created by Hazel, Andrea Meryem Angelos, Anna Marie, Lee Pike, Doriel Townend, Tamhra Gatti Richardson and Cheryl Reynolds for the CoH, December 2015)

Hail Hecate Einalian
Titaness grand-daughter of Eurybia
Who bestows the Seas bounty as She pleases
Riding upon the waves you bring
Strength and the spirits of the Ocean
Within your waters shallow, like a safe harbour,
Do you offer me the safety of the familiar and the known
Yet in your fathoms lie hidden secrets,
The realm of my deepest unconscious.
Cocooned in your warm waters,
Down in the darkest gradient I surrender.
Submerged, entombed, I harken to the mysteries of rebirth.
You temper the rages that overwhelm this vessel
And threatens to weather its spirit
Your mighty bellowing and flashes of brilliance
Quickens me with fertile thoughts.
You are the reflective light that dances upon the ocean waves
Travel with us as the starlight of guidance.
We’ll find you in the stillness of the water,
As your beacon of light pierces
The oceanic depths of our being,
Illuminating our ways.
Wild and free you breathe birth and calm,
Beautiful and placid and ever uplifting
Yet turn around and that’s all gone,
Death and destruction is yours.
But on and on you flow and ebb, the tide of life.
Within the stillness we know you ride the wave
Moving on the ones who could not be saved.
You shimmer and dance and delight all who see
You Hecate Einalian, Goddess of the Sea!

Ode’ to Hekate Einalian by Cheryl Reynolds (2016)

Bring me your oceanic secrets as I ebb and flow the depths of the sea.
Bring me your guiding light as I make voyage upon your waves of wisdom.
Bring me thirst of knowledge as I sip from your life-giving waters.
(Mindfully take a sip of water)
Hekate Einalian, Goddess of the Sea…
Bring me safe passage as I devote myself to thee.

Invocation to Oceanic Hecate by Hazel

Goddess of the Seas Hecate
I call to you!
Grand-daughter of the Oceanic Eurybia
I invoke you!
Marine Goddess of the Fishes
I ask of you to bestow your Watery gifts upon me
Open my mind to the dark depths of my subconscious
Reveal to me my monsters of the deep Oceans
Let your Mysteries ebb and flow like the tide
Illuminate within my dreams
I see you dancing upon the waves
As the Moon shines down on you
You smile and you laugh
But hidden beneath the surface
I can see you reflection; Your Shadow
Take me with you Great Hecate
So that I may know freedom, love, Your Dark Mysteries and my reflection
Invocation to Hecate and Poseidon by Hazel

God and Goddess of the Oceans, I invoke you
Earth-shaker Poseidon, Celestial Hecate I call to you
Lord and Lady who bestow the seas bounty and offer safe passage
I hail to you!
Teach me the wisdom of the horse!
Grant me the magick of the seas!
Reveal to me my monsters of the deep!
Lover and Mother of the Dog-headed Scylla
I call and ask of you
To help me understand the powers of the Oceans

For divination for either with through dreams or the Moon or Water bowl (in which case substitute the word “visions” with “dreams” in the last line) by Hazel

Hail to the Goddess of the Moon
Titaness of the Celestial Throne
I call to you Great Hecate of Old
Mediator of Souls
Liminal Life-Giving Mother of the Oceans
Send to me your prophetic visions
By the powers of the Moon and Sea
Let the dreams flow unto me


Oceanic Dark “Krataiis” Hecate (can be used either as invocation, honouring or even as a pathworking to identify/explore your Shadow**- just use the visualisation this invokes inside you) by Hazel

** If doing the visualisation, take note of what the torch looks like that she hands to you or anything else. They are likely to be your personal tools that Hecate is giving you to help manage the darker emotions. I speak from direct experience!

Darkness descends
Swimming to you
Treading water
I invoke you Great Hecate
Lady of the Waves
Oceanic Titanness

The shaking earth vibrates the sea
Roars from the deep
Bubbles arising
Fear takes over
I call you Mother of the dog-headed Scylla
Krataiis Hecate!
Illuminate this darkness

Pulled under
Cannot breathe
Heart pounding
Cannot see
Help Marine One
To face my monsters of the deep
Reflect my Shadow through the oceans mirrors

Seeing breathing
Light I see
Legs merging
My blood I hear
I see you Terrifying Queen
Behold the venomous Hecate!
Krataiis Hecate!

Eyes blackened
Scaly skin
Red black tail whipping
Fear gone
For it is you Hecate of the Dark Seas
Who hands me the coral torch
To illuminate this sea of black

Hail to Hecate! Mermaid of the deep! Oceanic One! I call to you! I invoke you!
