Here are a selection of hymns to Hecate Einalian (one of which also includes Poseidon) that I have written over the years. I have used them in my rituals and as tools to explore Hecate's oceanic side. People are free to use these hymns for themselves in their rituals, or for their own oceanic exploration. Enjoy the depths of Her sea!
Invocation to Oceanic Hecate
Goddess of the Seas Hecate
I call to you!
Grand-daughter of the Oceanic Eurybia
I invoke you!
Marine Goddess of the Fishes
I ask of you to bestow your Watery gifts upon me
Open my mind to the dark depths of my subconscious
Reveal to me my monsters of the deep Oceans
Let your Mysteries ebb and flow like the tide
Illuminate within my dreams
I see you dancing upon the waves
As the Moon shines down on you
You smile and you laugh
But hidden beneath the surface
I can see you reflection; Your Shadow
Take with you Great Hecate
So that I may know freedom, love, Your Dark Mysteries and my reflection.
Invokes Hecate and Poseidon
God and Goddess of the Oceans, I invoke you
Earth-shaker Poseidon, Celestial Hecate I call to you
Lord and Lady who bestow the seas bounty and offer safe passage
I hail to you!
Teach me the wisdom of the horse!
Grant me the magick of the seas!
Reveal to me my monsters of the deep!
Lover and Mother of the Dog-headed Scylla
I call and ask ofyou
To help me understand the powers of the Oceans.
For divination for either through dreams or the Moon or Water bowl (in which case substitute the word “visions” with “dreams in the last line)
Hail to the Goddess of the Moon
Titaness of the Celestial Throne
I call to you Great Hecate of Old
Mediator of Souls
Liminal Life-Giving Mother of the Oceans
Send to me your prophetic visions
By the powers of the Moon and Sea
Let the dreams flow unto me.
Oceanic Dark “Krataiis” Hecate
This can be used either as an invocation, honouring or even as a pathworking to identify/explore your Shadow**- just use the visualisation this invokes inside you. You can also record this, and play it back if required.
** If doing the visualisation, take note of what the torch looks like that she hands to you, or anything else. They are likely to be your personal tools that Hecate is giving you to help manage the darker emotions. I speak from direct experience!
Swimming to you
I invoke you Great Hecate
Lady of the Waves
The shaking earth vibrates the sea
Roars from the deep
Fear takes over
I call you Mother of the dog-headed Scylla
Illuminate this darkness.
Help Marine One
To face my monsters of the deep
Reflect my Shadow through the oceans mirrors.
Light I see
My blood I hear
I see you Terrifying Queen
Behold the venomous Hecate!
Red black tail whipping
For it is you Hecate of the Dark Seas
Who hands me the coral torch
To illuminate this sea of black.
Hail to Hecate! Mermaid of the deep! Oceanic One! I call to you! I invoke you!
Hecate The Mermaid (recited at the Hecate Symposium 2013)
She was born in the ocean arising from the waves in a time before humankind
And when life began, she gave it the spark of life
She is the ocean-
Forever flowing and fleeting
Deep as the ocean floor
And dark as its caverns
She is the Maiden, with her long blonde hair-
Playing amongst the waves
Laughing and rejoicing in the sunlight with jewels in her hair
She is the siren-
Seducing men with her turquoise eyes and voice
Luring them to their watery graves
She is the darkness-
Her blue and silver tail disappears as her body erupts with black and red scales
One bite and her venom will transform you into a monster of the deep, slave to your emotions.
Know who She is and what She wants from you:
Rejoice and play in the sun
Understand your emotions.
She wants you to cast yourself adrift so you can lose yourself in the sea
For it is within her ocean, you will find your reflection and your Shadow
She can see inside you, your heart and soul
She knows your path and desires.
So when you find yourself on the beach breathing in the salty air, feeling the tides roll in, reach out to her and dive in.
She is the grand-daughter of Eurybia, and the mother of sea monsters
She is Hecate, Sea Goddess and Mermaid
And you are diving into her.
