Isn’t the goat song supposed to come later?
And she sings the song about I simply remember a few of my favorite things during the thunderstorm?
The movie with Julie Andrews that we all know is different from the play This version is actually the stage play word for word.
BWAHAHA. DO I HAVE A CHOICE
Well, maybe you don’t…
Not if you want it to actually happen.
I WANT TO DO THIS. CAN WE DO THIS?
yes, but only if you’ll help me plan and advertise it, my dear!
I KNOW RIGHT!
I’ve been thinking about trying to get one together, but I don’t think enough people really pay attention to me for the word to get out by myself. I think we would need like a committee or something.

THE GREEK DEITY HEKATE IS NOT A TRIPLE GODDESS
let me repeat
THE GREEK DEITY HEKATE IS NOT A TRIPLE GODDESS
Let me teach you a thing, folks.
So you’ve got this ancient Greek deity, Hekate. And She’s responsible for witchcraft, necromancy, the night, crossroads, some associations with wayfinding and dogs, etc. She’s also scary as fuck. None of this “harm none” bullshit; the brand of witchcraft She presides over is quite simply using witchcraft to destroy people who deserve to be destroyed. Rah rah curses, rah rah FUCKING NECROMANCY, all of that.
She’s also a maiden deity. Let me repeat that. Maiden deity. Maiden. Not mother. Not crone. Maiden. Period. There’s some UPG out there that She’s got a bit of a thing going with Hermes, but even then. Not mother. Not crone.
She is also not triplicate. Let me show you a picture.
Bam. Hekate. You see the torches? Hekate. You see how She’s not pregnant and not old? MAIDEN DEITY.
Let me show you some more pictures. Fucking ancient pictures. Because, you know, this is an ancient deity you’re running your mouths about. She existed long before you were able to portray Her as pregnant and barefoot and peaceful on the internet.
Here She is SETTING A MOTHERFUCKER ON FIRE. Note how there’s still one of Her and She’s not old or pregnant.
And here She is again on the left, SETTING A MOTHERFUCKER ON FIRE with Her torches. Yeah, real love and light. More like, She loves to light motherfuckers on fire. Notice again how there’s ONE of Her and She’s a young woman without pregnancy.
Are you getting the picture yet? Is it beginning to sink in yet that She’s not a triple goddess and she sure as hell isn’t a mother goddess or a crone? Are you beginning to realize being all-loving and all-light and “don’t cause harm, guys” is NOT HER FUCKING JOB?
Now let me show you where you fucking ignorant history-hating uneducated peasants got this “triple Goddess” idea from.
Hekate is the Goddess of Crossroads. As in literal street intersections. And ancient Greeks fucking loved to put statues out to watch over shit like that. Look up what a Herm is sometimes. It’s literally Hermes’ head and a dick. And they put that thing FUCKING EVERYWHERE. Ancient Greeks loved that shit.
So sometimes they set up statues of Hekate to watch over crossroads. And they needed some way to show She can watch over all the crossroads at once. So they’d go to places where three roads intersected at the same place and they sculpted three statues instead, so no matter which road you were coming from, Hekate would be watching you.
You see this? THIS IS CALLED A FUCKING METAPHOR.
First, note right off the bat the statues are identical. One isn’t pregnant and one isn’t old. THIS IS NOT A MAIDEN/MOTHER/CRONE IMAGE. Because Hekate is not a crone deity or a mother deity.
THERE ARE ALSO NOT LITERALLY THREE OF HER. THIS IS A METAPHOR. It symbolizes that She’s watching all roads. It’s like how in sculpture Moses is depicted with two spikes on his head. Is it saying he LITERALLY has horns? NO. It’s a metaphor for a fucking halo.
METAPHOR, YOU IGNORANT BABOONS. FUCKING METAPHOR.
Wanna learn about THIS Hekate? OUR Hekate? I recommend this page.
Y’all are welcome to worship a Maiden/Mother/Crone trio. That’s your right. You can even call her Hecate or Hekate or fucking Snoopy for all I care. But it’s not the same deity as OUR Hekate. Not if it’s a peace-loving, “harm none” promoting, love and light spouting, baby-birthing, old age looking Triple Goddess.
You might as well say that Zeus is the Triple Goddess.
don’t fucking anyone say that or I swear to god someone’s getting cut
This. All of this.
Though I had been taught that the Moses and horns thing was a mistranslation rather than a metaphor.
I was under the impression that some Renaissance dude thought he knew Hebrew, but actually didn’t know jack, and therefore mistranslated fucking “rays if light” aka a halo as bloody horns.
Sometimes (like now) I’m really glad that I created my own religion around the Forgotten Ones. No one knows who they are, so no one talks about them. No one cares about my dumb little self-made religion, and it saves me a lot of drama. I think.
I have a similar curse posted, where you christen food as your enemy and eat them so all the nutrients is absorbed and they’re left as only bad stuff.
I have made candy poppets, tied them to people or things that I did not like, and then nomed on them to show them who’s boss.
I have also made candy poppets and tied them to concepts or characteristics that I wanted to embody, then nomed on them to absorb their power.
