Out of the blue, out of the dark, and into the light of the Moon. I am slowly driven to Her Sacred Fires.

In the darkest hour;
that's when I saw Her.
She had no shape or form.
She's not meant to.
Her grace goes beyond matter.
She reached out to me
on my darkest moon,
because that's when She shines the brightest.
That's when you see Her most clearly.
She's not for...

Timaios is one of the dialogues of Plato, which the great philosopher wrote in his latest years. It is a continuation of “About Town” or “About Justice” and after that, Kritias should be read, at least the fragment that is has survived to us. Another title for Timaios is “About Nature”. It was the main text of cosmology till 13th century, when the Physics and Metaphysics of Aristotle were discovered. The first two parts have been survived...

Some days ago, I followed a pathworking being in theta-gamma. The Goddess Hekate played an important role to this exercise as I asked Her to show me a symbol for my further personal evolution. From a point I could't continue with the existed story of the pathworking as the Goddess created scenes in which I coudln't interfere with my imagination. In this journey She took me to a place which I found later that it was also described in the...

Almost a year ago, I wrote an article with Hekate in the G.D. Temple Tarot. It is time to expand it and be more analytical. In this article I am going to focus on the Moon card of the Major Arcana and how the Goddess is related with that card.

A Witch Alone

Who sleeps in darkness? And who wakes?
And who prefers the light?
Through chaos, order shall await,
Serenity of Night.

Stand at the crossroads. Will you choose?
Who will control your life?
Stand by the Sun and you will burn
a shadow's death in strife.

Look for the torches in your path...

Neoplatonic philosopher Porphyry divided virtues in four categories in his work Sententiae. Political virtues, kathartikes (cleansing) virtues, mental virtues, paradigmatic virtues. The political virtues set boundaries to the passions of the soul. The cleansing virtues help the removal of those passions. The...

Recently Hekate lead me to the work "About Statues" of the neo-platonic philosopher Porphyry. I was meeting him, many times in references of ancient texts and modern studies.

In this article we will see how Porphyry is decoding the names and the properties...
