Hecate, the Great Crone of Wisdom, is the Goddess at the Crossroads. She holds a lantern, a light to help us see our path as we approach the many junctions of destiny. She does not tell us which way to go, but allows us to find what has heart and meaning for us. At Samhain when the Wheel has come full circle we harvest the seeds of consciousness we planted the year before and plant for the next year by Her gracious light.
On this Samhain I pray Goddess will help us each and collectively as a nation find the right path for the good of all, according to the free will of all. As a Pagan I understand one great sacrilege, to lay my hands or my will on another’s Karma. We must all do our Karmic dance with the music we are given, and we must resist in the strongest possible way any attempt to force us to dance to another person’s melody.
