The chapters are about aspects of Hekate, including the following: chapter 1, Hekate as a protector of the home and the dearly departed; chapter 2, Hekate as goddess of the crossroads; chapter 3, Hekate as goddess of the dead; chapter 4, Hekate as a goddess of inspiration (muse); chapter 5, Hekate as a the goddess of witchcraft; and chapter 6, Hekate as a goddess of both life and death. Instead of each chapter being an informative essay about whom Hekate is and what she does, the chapters are descriptions of Moss's experiences of these aspects of Hekate.
The seventh chapter gives you a few lists to work with, including Hekate's epithets, spirits, animals, colors, metals, herbs, stones, trees, etc. Moss also supplies quick lists of offerings and sacred items and symbols. Chapter 8 gives you some herbal mixtures and directions on collecting and consecrating various kinds of water and dirt for spells. Moss ends with a list of suggested reading if you want to know more about Hekate or Greek deities.
As someone who called upon Hekate for the first time only three weeks ago, I can say that this book's quick lists gave me just enough information to set up a proper altar and to get an idea of which of Hekate's aspects most align with my spiritual journey. I can get by on that while I wait for more books to arrive and sift through the wide array of helpful to not-so-helpful websites lurking on the internet.
I think the nicest gift of this book is the lyrical quality of it and the author's descriptions of her experience of Hekate, both of which are inspiring to me.
Of course, as the author herself predicts in her text, I don't agree with absolutely everything she says, belief-wise. But then again, when I read a Pagan or Wiccan book, I never do. And the whole point of walking this particular spiritual path is to be able to think for yourself and use your own critical thinking skills. Having Moss describe the different "faces" or aspects of Hekate certainly helps with this, as well.
I'm glad I ordered this book.
Moss's perceptions of Hekate are very different from my own, but her heart is obviously in her service and dedication to goddess and craft. It was very interesting and inspirational to read about how she sees the goddess and how Hekate has made a difference in her life. She is honest about her personal gnosis instead of claiming to have the be-all end-all info as well, and that's always refreshing.
Several of the hymns and invocations are beautiful and moving; I hope the author doesn't mind if I speak them at my own altar. There are also several different recipe ideas for offerings of incense, holy water, and nifty ideas about dirt inspired by the usage and lore of graveyard dirt in cunning craft.
I envy the author her convictions and her devotion. May we all be half so blessed in our relationships with the gods as she.
This is an amazing read. As a follower of the path and of Hekate, I found myself mesmerized by the poetic imagery and beauty in detail. It is a short read but one I made myself read slowly as to soak in all the images that it induced for me,goosebumps were numerous. I would recommend this to anyone following a Goddess path even if it is not Her path. So do yourselves a favor and get this book. it is well worth the read!

It validated my Hekate experiences and decoded some pretty powerful dreams and meetings with wild animals. At one part of the book, the author describes entering the realm of our lady Hekate, and it literally took my breath away! It was almost EXACTLY the same as my own.
hekate was and is, with me.
