The Great Mother, to the ancients, was life and death, blessing and bane. Nor is she merely a Goddess of Motherhood, although Hekate has always had a special interest in mothers and children. She was often described as Midwife in ancient texts.
Psychopomp, which translates from Greek as “Soul Guide,” is one of Hekate’s most ancient roles. She is the one who helps the dead cross over to the other side, she is midwife, and she reunites us with our soul. Hekate calls us to take care of our own souls, and to see the soul in all things.
