Hekate is the expression of the absence, which is the meaning of the Black Moon, the concealed Moon. Her attributes may appear desparation and void, but this is the appeareance. The Black Moon is the moment of regeneration. Hekate is therefore the symbol of powerful energy, so deep and powerful to generate fear and respect. Another image of Hekate is Melpomene, the Muse of mystical song and ecstatic dance. The Orphic Hymn celebrates Persephones, which is the image of the Moon eclipsed into the hidden underworld, the womb that will give birth to the new Moon and to the whole life upon the earth.
