Hecate statue
Protector of Daily Life, Birth, Death and Wild Animals
Maiden, Mother and Wise Woman

In pre-dynastic Egypt, the matriarch or wise woman of the tribe was called the �heq�. Hecate` was worshipped as the midwife goddess Hekat, who assisted with the daily birth of the sun.
Hecate` was considered to be the goddess of crossroads; the place where decisions must be made and where one can look back into the past and forward into the future.
She belonged to the class of torch bearing deities and was represented as carrying a burning torch signifying she was the nocturnal goddess of the moon and a huntress who knew her way into the realm of spirits. She wears a gleaming head dress of stars. All the secret powers of Nature are at her command. She had control over birth, life, and death. Because of her power in the three areas of nature, heaven and earth she was represented in a triple form. Hence, she was referred to as the triple goddess. Hecate` is depicted as three female figures. Persephone (Proserpina) as the maiden, Demeter (Ceres) as the mother and Hecate` as the wise woman or crone.
