“I call Ækáti of the Crossroads, worshipped at the meeting of three paths, oh lovely one.
In the sky, earth, and sea, you are venerated in your saffron-colored robes.
Funereal Daimohn, celebrating among the souls of those who have passed.
Persian, fond of deserted places, you delight in deer.
Goddess of night, protectress of dogs, invincible Queen.
Drawn by a yoke of bulls, you are the queen who holds the keys to all the Kózmos.
Commander, Nýmphi, nurturer of children, you who haunt the mountains.
Pray, Maiden, attend our hallowed rituals;
Be forever gracious to your mystic herdsman and rejoice in our gifts of incense.”
I was talking with a fellow coven member just today about this incredible Goddess, one that predates the Olympian Gods and of possible Thracian origins.
She is the Goddess who rules over heaven and earth, the one who holds the keys to the cosmos and the rights of fertility. A triple Goddess who you encounter at the cross roads, the guardian, one that is part of the cosmic creation story and looks over funeral rights.
She is born of Asteria (Stars) and the Nihta (Night) therefore represents the primordial creation of all that is.
May the Great Goddess look over you and protect you.
Blessings to one and all
