Deipnon Invocation

This is an invocation to the Goddess Hekate, I wrote one night being very connected with the Goddess. This is a hymn I intented to give it to the COH team that celebrates Deipnon, but this project didn't materialized due to constraints of the administration. So, I present it here in the safe ground of the Crossroads Witch to be used wisely during deipnon.

Lay down your deipnon in a plate. Light the candles, incense and calm yourself by relaxing the body. Use a brass instrument to make sound. You can use brass jingles for that. You are going to produce sound with three strikes. Make sure you have experimented before with your musical instrument.

Ancient Unknown Hymn to Hekate Chthonia

In the following article an ancient hymn to Hekate will be presented saved by the christian philosopher and theologist, Ippolytos. The hymn is unknown to the community of the Goddess Hekate and as this blog has the goal to present rare material and information from the ancient texts, about our Goddess, this article is another great contribution to our goal. The hymn can be used to invoke the Goddess during Deipnon (=Supper) or the darker aspects during waning of the moon.

Invocation to the World Creator

In PGM IV 1716 lies a very effective binding spell called the Sword of Dardanos, the man who founded the mysteries in Samothrace. The island is associated with the Goddess Hekate. It starts with an invocation to the God who created the universe. I have translated and it can be used as a strong invocation to Hekate Soteira or Hekate Panopaia or Hekate Pasikrateia and calling the aspects of Axis Mundi and Queen of the World.

Due to the nature of the ancient invocations, the Witch should have a deep connection with the Goddess, to make the invocation with all of his emotions and vibrating the vowels and pronouncing correctly the voces magicae with all of the energy.

Invocation using PGM XII

Goddess Hekate. The invocation I am going to write derives from the PGM XII 238-245. It is an invocation to the almighty God, but I have modified it slightly to invoke the Goddess Hekate. The invocation is very beautiful, truely poetic. I have added the invocation to a well structured ritual, for anyone who wants to follow it or modify it according to its magickal tradition.

Invocation to Selene

I used the Homeric hymn to Selene, the Orphic hymn to Selene and the Idylls of Theocritus as the main sources of inspiration in order to write the following invocation.

Cleanse your space.

Erect the temple.

Anoint your forehead with pure olive oil shaping a crescent moon. 

Make the gesture of invoking/praising.

Invocation to Selene

Sister of Helios and Eos
you with the long wings
who wear a long clad.

Orphic Hymn

Hymns are poems praising the divine and they are used to invoke the God/Goddess in the place in which a ceremony takes place by the Witch of the God/Goddess.

In ancient texts for Hekate we find the first of the orphic hymns the hymn to Hekate (11.835 b.C. or 1366 b.C.). Many years later, Proclus writes an hymn for Hekate and Ianus (400 a.C.). The homeric hymn to Demeter (3000 b.C.)is reffering to Hekate and her power as long as her character. In Greek Magical Papyri (abbreviated PGM) the hymn to Selene is an hymn to Hekate (2nd centrury b.C. to 4rth centrury a.C.). Selene and Hekate were the same Goddess.

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