Hecate, also spelled Hekate, is the Greek goddess of magic, witches, ghosts and the underworld. She is represented in three forms while holding a torch or keys. In later times, she is variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, the Moon, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery.
