"On this night of the Dark Moon dedicated to you, Hekate, eternal Love of my heart. Wrapped in your coiling form, I drown within the bleeding ocean of your cosmic Heart. Kaire Hekate, cosmic Rose in crimson bloom - each crimson drop Thy Essence in petal form. Serpent Queen, Thy blood - life of my earthen flesh. IO HEKATE SOTEIRA IO HO." - Abstract from my poetry and invocational writings to Hekate and Lucifer, 2011.
IO HEKATE-PHOSPHOROS IO HO.
IO HEKATE-SOTEIRA IO HO.
// Invocation to Hekate //
O Triple Form of Darkness
Thou Moon unseen of men
Thou Crowned demon of the crownless dead.
O breasts of blood, too bitter and too tender
Unseen of gentle spring.
Let me the offering
Bring to Thine Shrine's sepulchral glittering.
I slay the swarth beast, I bestow the blood
Sown in the dusk and gathered in the gloom
Under the waning moon.
At midnight hardly lightenig the East:
And the black lamb from the black ewe's womb
I bring and stir the slow infernal tune
Fit for Thy Chosen Priest.
Here...where the band of Ocean breaks the road
Black trodden, deeply stooping to the abyss.
I shall salute Thee with a Nameless Kiss
Pronounced toward the uttermost abode of Thy supreme Desire.
I shall illume the fire
Whence the wild stryges shall illume the lyre
Whence thy lemures shall gather and spring round
Girding me in a sad funereal ground
With faces turned back...
My face averted.
I shall consumate this awful act of worship
Fear upon earth, and Fear in Hell,
And Black Fear in the Sky beyond fate
I hear the whining of Thy wolves! I hear
The howling of the hounds about Thy Form,
Who comest in the terror of Thy storm
And night falls faster, ere Thine eyes appear
Glittering through the mist,
O face of Woman unkissed
Save by the dead whose love is taken ere they wist!
Thee, Thee I call! O Dire One! O divine!
I, the sole mortal seek Thy deadly shrine;
Pour the dark stream of blood
A sleepy and a reluctant river
Even as Thou drawest with Thine Eyes on mine, To me
Across the sense bewildering flood
That holds my soul forever!
1875 - 1947

Hail to Thee Serpentine Consort of the Triple Moon Hekate;
Hail to Thee, Death of evening's Twilight;
Hail to Thee, Rebirth of the morning Dawn;
Hail to Thee O Lucifer!
Io evohe Phosphoros, Phosphoros evohe!
Arise and descend upon me O Lucifer - God of Hell,
Morning and the evening Star.
