|There comes a time in our lives when we come to a crossroads. Which road will lead us to a happy, fulfilled life? Should we take the road less traveled or stick to the path that feels safe? Maybe you're a teenager heading off to college-which school is the right one for you? Or maybe a new job opportunity has arisen in another state.
At such a time, call upon Hecate, goddess of wisdom. Decorate your altar with Hecate's symbols, including keys, black dog figures, poppies, and hazelnuts. Light a black candle for the wisdom of the crone and say:
"Hecate of wisdom and revealer of insight,
I come to the crossroads on this night.
Illuminate the path that is right for me.
As I will it, so mote it be!"
Close your eyes and picture yourself at the crossroads. Let the torch of the crone illuminate the path that is right for you.
