Witchery including mediumship, psychopompery and summoning spirits are all forms of death walking particularly suited for this time of the year. Refer to my article on Death Walking for more information. Hekate’s association with crossroads and the underworld really highlight her association with death walking witchery. She is the liminal queen of the spaces between this life and all others, including the dead and spirit guides. Consider a ritual seeking Hekate’s protection of, or ask her to connect you to, the spirits of the land connected to your home.
Persephone, who is so closely connected to Hekate, sits on her throne as the Queen of the Underworld during November. I have found that Hekate will guide me to Persephone when I seek the mysteries of the afterlife.
November is also the time to begin preparing for a rebirth at the Winter Solstice. I’ll be writing more about the process of dismemberment and death, as well as soul retrieval with a Modern Hekatean Witchcraftapproach in the weeks ahead. November is ideal for petitioning Hekate to shine her torches on what you need to let go of.
