Hekate And September (Suggestions for Correspondences, Rituals and More)

Hekate And September (Suggestions for Correspondences, Rituals and More) September 3, 2018

September is the month of the final harvest from the land. Labor Day is connected to Hekate via her role as a champion of the common people, as she was in ancient Greece and Rome and remains today as Guardian of the Marginalized.  The Fall Equinox marks the return of Hekate Chthonia as the Wheel of the Year turns to decreased daylight and our energy shifts inward, towards the emotional depths of the Under World. As we move towards the Season of the Witch, the energy of September offers an excellent opportunity to contemplate endings, beginnings and the space in-between. 

My brain works on an annual calendar that begins tomorrow – the first day of the school year. Of course, my heart works on a different one that starts November 1. Then there is that annoying calendar beginning January 1. Perhaps by body works on that one, I know I get motivated to workout after too much holiday indulgence. Back to the present moment, between my brain and my heart calendars, there is an in-between space of September and October. September is the month of endings, when we say goodbye to summer’s splendor, from precious vacations to longer hours of daylight. It’s just as much the time of beginnings, especially for those of us who go back to school or ramp up our work schedules.
