Hear the words of the Witches

Happy Halloween to everybody. 
Meet the Queen of the Night the Great Goddess Hecate. Myth #1 She is a crone stirring a cauldron, Myth #2 Her people (Witches) are evil. And Myth #3 Hecate and the witches cast evil spells. The truth is Witches are NOT evil nor due they cast spells to hurt people. Hecate is a triple goddess-in-one mean She is the Maiden, Mother, and Crone at once see past, present, and future events. To the Story of Hecate:
After the War with the Titans. the Original Olympians punished their enemies the Titans who oppose them to Tartarus. A few Titans, however, were spared from being eternal punish due to the fact they refusal to fight the Original Olympians. Hecate was one of these few Titans. After the war She was able to keep her authority over the earth, sky and sea (although her authority in these realms are inferior to the Olympians especially Zeus's).
In the beginning of Greek culture, Hecate was shown as a benevolent goddess associated with earth like Demeter.  …

Happy Halloween

Halloween, celebrated each year on October 31, is a mix of ancient Celtic practices, Catholic  and Roman religious rituals and European folk traditions that blended together over time to create the holiday we know today. The line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity and life and death is the thinnest, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. Halloween has long been thought of as a day when the dead can return to the earth, and ancient Celts would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off these roaming ghosts. So if you see the spirits of the dead relations don't freak out (to badly) least they are not deadbeat family. And scare the family holidays are coming. 
Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain (pronounced "sah-win"). 
The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter. The anci…

The Darkness within

Lord of the Underworld  Good Counselor In the spirit of Halloween, I decided to write an article about Lord Hades. Due to the fact that Halloween deal with ghouls, ghost, devils, and other demonic creatures.  At the end of the Titan War, the brothers Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades decided to divided the universe by playing lots. Poseidon won the seas, Zeus won the heavens and Hades won the Underworld. This suit Hades just fine. To some he may seem somber, grim god but he really tried to fair and honest god. Being the eldest god and having to live with his siblings's argue over petty things and scheme can anyone wants to be a lone.  Hades spent little time with his Olympian siblings, preferring instead to withdraw to his own space and to mind his own business.
Unlike his brother Poseidon, Hades has FULL CONTROL of the Underworld. Most of the gods stay clear of Underworld and it ruler Hades. Not even Zeus interferes with the business of the Underworld except the case of Persephone. The god…

Musical inspiration of Apollo

Apollo is smart, kind-heart, and powerful Olympian-but better he is tall, dark, and handsome. The Ancient Greeks and Romans usually describe Apollo as the ideal of masculine beauty. He is tall and muscular, with  Hollywood looks and charms. Despite the fact he is sexy, the god is often unlucky in love and suffer rejections. But he does have his share of amorous successes as well.

Apollo is a highly skilled in various fields of endeavor similar to the Celtic God Lugh.  He is the God of Sunlight, Prophecy, Music, Medicine, Truth and Archery to name a few. Although his sister, Lady Artemis is associated with all wild animal especially the deer and the bear, Apollo's sacred animals are wolves, dolphins, deers, and prophetic birds.  Apollo is a god you need to respect or suffer his wrath. Like all the gods of the Greek 12 Olympians, he can also be harsh. When Niobe, Queen of Thebes and a proud mother of 6 sons and 6 daughters, on the Feast of Leto she said that she is greater than Let…
