Necromancy with Hekate

Hekate in Necromancy by Loukianos

Necromancy in Texts

Read some of the most detailed descriptions of ancient necromantic rituals as they can be found in ancient texts.

Ancient Hellenic Necromancy

This is an extended article that I am writing before the dark moon of September as an offering to the Goddess Hekate Chthonia. I am going to present some basic information about the ancient hellenic necromancy and then a presentation of one of the four biggest death oracles in the ancient world will be presented. Averno is closely associated with Hekate and Persephone. So, our Goddess lived there and She was very active bringing the dead back to life.

Queen of the Wands

In this article we are going to examine if and how the court card of the Queen of the Wands relate with the Goddess of the Crossroads. The reason for this correlation is an esoteric motivation I had to buy a printed image of the Queen from the Golden Dawn Temple Tarot. Without knowing much about the symbolism of this card in the Golden Dawn decks I put it next to a classical image of Hekate and they are going fine. Let's see how this happened.

Tarot Meditation

This is a common technique for anyone who uses Tarot as a tool of divination or self improvement. Also, Golden Dawn practitioners use this technique for the same reasons.

Hekate in the GD Temple Tarot

The Golden Dawn Temple Tarot is one of a few Golden Dawn Tarot decks that are available for the magickal and tarot community. It is a pure representative of the english school of tarot, the most famous school. This deck is the most recent in its category and maybe the most vivid one. It has been created by Nicola and Harry Wendrich and Nick Farrell, extremelly important personalities. It is available in the Wendrich Art House website (http://www.wendricharthouse.com/shop_gdttd1.htm#b1). The cards have been drawn after esoteric work like meditation, astral projection and total understanding of the Book T of the Golden Dawn Hermetic Tradition.

Searching Hekate In Majors

With the archetypical energies of the Major Arcana or Triumphs I am going to present those cards who are straightly connected with Hekate. As I did in Lenormand article, I am going to write some meanings of each card and then how the energy of the card is related with out Triple Goddess. The tarot deck that I use here is based in the english school (Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn) and it is the Smith-Waite Tarot. Though it is not the best deck for a Golden Dawn magickian, we are going to use it and its depictions here.

Searching Hekate In Court Cards

This article is part of a series searching Hekate in divination cards. The court cards are parts of minor arcana. Those court cards are illustrated with persons because they represent persons ot qualities the querent must have to solve his problem/situation. By all court cards the Queen of Cups and the Queen of Pentacles are the most relevant I could find, using the RWS deck. Let's see who is a friend of Hekate or contains the energy of Her.

Searching Hekate In Lenormand

Cartomancy is my field. While I was reading cards for a friend, I thought it might be a good idea to write about the hand of Hekate in the Lenormand cards. In the following article you are going to read about this method (French Cartomancy) and how I see the main properties and the main energy of Hekate in those cards.

Ouija Board

Let's see how this device can be used and if it is really a game.

Talking boards were made in ancient Hellas and China. Today we have ouija boards.

Oui means yes in french.
Ja means yes in german.

It was patented by William Fuld. The Parker Games Syndication in U.S.A. made the boards in 1892.


Theurgy and Philosophy are two different methods which lead to the union with God.
