This Week's Word - HECATE



Hello and WELCOME!

If you write and/or read paranormal novels, you should like this week's word. This is a very old word of Latin and Greek origin and, I thought very appropriate when celebrating Halloween:


Hecate
 noun - ˈhe-kə-tē, ˈhe-kət

A Greek goddess associated especially with the underworld, night, and witchcraft. She was said to be the goddess of the underworld and the protector of witches. She was sometimes depicted as three bodies back to back, so that she could look in all directions at a crossroads.

Origin: Latin, from Greek Hekatē. First Known Use: 1567.
