She appears here as the Queen of all the creatures of the Night. Her flamboyant and intense gaze embodies the dark, mysterious and wilder side of nature. . She is the psychopomp reaper and the prophetic goddess of witches.

I call Ækátî of the Crossroads, worshipped at the meeting of three paths, oh Lovely one.
In the sky, earth, and sea, you are venerated in your saffron-colored robes.
Funereal Daimôn, celebrating among the souls of those who have passed.
Persian, fond of deserted places, you delight in deer.
Goddess of night, protectress of dogs, invincible Queen.
Drawn by a yoke of bulls, you are the queen who holds the keys to all the Kózmos.
Commander, Nýmphi, nurturer of children, you who haunt the mountains.
Pray, Maiden, attend our hallowed rituals;
Be forever gracious to your mystic herdsman and rejoice in our gifts of incense.
- Orphic Hymn to Ækáti (Hekate)
