Saturday Night’s Goddess: Trivia or Hecate
Roman Goddess: Trivia
“Trivia, the minor Roman goddess of crossroads and guardian of roads:
The Roman crossroads were often game paths and popular places for hunters to spread their nets and traps, in the hope of catching small animals. Travelling at night was dangerous for all the normal reasons, but added to this, humans could also be caught in the hunter’s traps only guided by the deceptive light of the moon. Crossroads, in the symbolic term, were also seen as points of danger where the path of life split representing the moment of decision in strange surroundings and unknown circumstances. An effigy of Trivia was placed on crossroads where votive offerings were left. The goddess Trivia would be called upon for help, protection and guidance when danger threatened. As a triple divinity Trivia is represented in art as having three female bodies, all young and beautiful, and united together. There is considerable confusion regarding Trivia who is often linked with Hecate (Greek goddess) or Hekate the Roman goddess.” source
“The Goddess Hecate is Mistress of the Night and represents the waning to dark cycle of the Moon, and most particularly the three days of the dark moon. Hecate symbolizes the dark within us, the part of our psyche we refuse to acknowledge. Many ignore the wisdom, the strength and the truth of Hecate, because our fear of the darkness is so strong. Hecate is associated with the dark side of the moon, but this is the true Moon. The Moon has no light of its own, only reflected light from the sun. Dark is the Moon’s true color as is Hecate’s. Hecate can be called upon during the waning moon and more powerfully, during the three days when the moon is dark.” ~ http://www.hecatescauldron.org
