The Daily Recipe

Daily Draw: Moon Oracle ~ Hecate

Hecate has been known as Dog of the Moon, the dog was her sacred animal, she was associated with the dog star Sirius, the two dogs shown here represent the pack she always had with her. What caught my eye this morning though was the three stages of the moon headdress.

I'm reminded by this card I try to live in the today, but if we are alive our life is swept by a rolling state of flux, often associated with the stage of the moon. The moment we are in colors the others and the cycles vary through the course of our day. Honestly? I wouldn't have it any other way. My past is who I am, and the future is open to conjecture. Life is a kick, today is another opportunity to move along, hay foot straw foot.

"There seems to be a kind of order in the universe, in the movement of the stars and the turning of the earth and the changing of the seasons, and even in the cycle of human life. But human life itself is almost pure chaos." ~ Katherine Anne Porter 1890-1980


  1. We can't change the past and you are right, it is who we are. We can view it differently, forgive it, and or bury it, but we are who we are from those days begone.
    The headdress with the three stages of the Moon symbolize the Goddess Isis. In Egyptian mythology, I think her and her brother Osiris brought forth the World.

  2. Love the tail-end of that quote. I am curious about the "hay foot, straw foot" phrase - I've never heard of that one before. :)

    1. clearly you were never in the army during the civil war. It is 'said' many of the troops didn't know the difference between right foot and left for so they put straw in one boot, hay in the other and stepped off their cadences

    2. We used to teach the preschoolers to make and "L" shape with their thumb and pointer finger on both hands. The one that made a correct (not backward) L was the left side. Of course this wouldn't work with soldiers who were illiterate!
