REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Vivienne Moss’ Hekate: A Devotional is part grimoire, part poetry, part devotional and part spiritual diary. There are many published books on Hekate, most of them scholarly, academic or historical. This on the other hand is not that. The book is a time capsule containing mostly the relationship between Hekate and the author, a solitary hedge witch from Indiana. Sharing personal gnosis is a brave and vulnerable gift to the world, especially when it goes against what is established about a deity. Yet this book is not about fanciful reveries or made-up information, it is about the living spirit of Hekate in today’s age and much of it can be verified by the personal gnosis of other practitioners, even if it does not abide by history’s records. Much of this book breaks the orthodoxy of the established history of Hekate, which is part of what I loved about this book. Humans often like to put things into nice and orderly boxes, including the gods themselves. However, if there’s one deity who defies dogma, orthodoxy and established rules it is most definitely Hekate. From fighting with the Olympians against her fellow Titans in the Titanomarchy to being the patron goddess of witches and outcast who defy conventional norms. She appears in extreme different forms and aspects throughout culture to culture and time period to time period. The vast spirit who is Hekate always challenges preconceived notions of who she is. She is not some relic of ancient history but rather a living spirit who shifts within history from Titan to Goddess to World Soul to Witch Queen. I have found Hekate within this book, many of the experiences paralleling my own and many that were very different than mine. This includes many experiences that I have not read in any other book. While it is a small book at only 96 pages, the book itself is brim full of soul. It is completely evident to me as a devotee of Hekate that Vivienne is indeed in contact with Her. While an oddity amongst my other books on Hekate it is perhaps one of my favorites for this reason. ~ Mat Auryn, Mat Auryn

Review: Pagan Portals - Hekate: A Devotional If you are looking for a Yule gift for a witch with a taste for the dark and Gothic, you could do a lot worse than treat them to a new book called Hekate: A Devotional by new author Vivienne Moss. Here is a taste of how it starts: As the storm looms on the horizon, I stand safely on my porch awaiting its arrival. There is an ominous feel to this storm and I shudder with thoughts of its destructive force. With a hushed breath I pray: ‘Hekate, Lady of Storms, I beseech You, keep my home safe from harm. Guide this wayward storm away from my loved ones. Hekate, My Queen, the One I adore, as Your storm approaches I bow my head to You in reverence and trust that You will keep us safe…’ She heard my prayers that night and has answered many more. It is a deeply personal account of Vivienne's relationship with the Hekate, Queen of Witches. It is written with a dreamlike, poetic quality that evokes the Goddess rather than attempting to give a factual account of her history or academic study of rituals associated with Hekatean worship. However, it is also a practical book - the last few chapters make up a grimoire for witches who want to work with her. Publisher Moon Books says on its website: "The Goddess of Witches, Queen of Shades and Shadows, and the ever-eternal Dark Muse – Hekate, Fair Queen of the Shadow-Lands, haunts the pages of this poetic devotional, enchanting those who love Her with the charm only this Dark Goddess can bring. Join in the journey as we meet Hekate, Queen of Sorcery, in the realms of Dream and Enchantment, weaving magic through the Worlds – Seen and Unseen. We take flight to the Lands Eternal in this part devotional, part grimoire and learn how to venerate this Great Goddess of antiquity and connect with the Spirits of the Shadow-Lands…" Vivienne says her hope is to "share the magic of the world with fellow seekers of Witchdom". I think she succeeds ~ Lucya, Badwich
