A ritual calling on Hecate to help cleanse the home.


  • Altar
  • Black Candle
  • Wine or water in a chalice
  • Incense


Begin by setting up your altar as you normally do for ritual. On your altar, place the wine/water chalice as well as the candle and incense. It is best to set your altar on the floor for this rite, but you may do it however you feel most comfortable.

Cast your circle as you normally do. When you are through, kneel before your altar and light the black candle. With your arms held, palms upward, at your sides, call Hecate by saying three times: "Hecate, beautiful Crone of Night, I call you here to put things right. Transform the negative thought and pain. And help my life be whole again."

Close your eyes. When you feel the presence of Hecate and know she is there to help you, open your eyes. Bow your head to her to show your reverence, and then take the chalice, saying: "Lady of the Dark Moon, share with me this drink. Bring your protection to flood this life of mine. May the waters of your eternal womb bring change most divine." Sip a small amount of the wine (or water), envisioning it as liquid energy, flowing to effect a positive change within and outside of you. Leave the rest as an offering to Hecate.

Light the purifying incense. If it is not on something you can carry it with easily, put it in a container. Now cut a door in the Circle, and, beginning in the eastern-most corner of your home, smudge your home, going clockwise. Go into every closet, the bathroom, and the garage - make sure your entire house is smudged. As you go, chant: "Negativity be gone."

Come back into the Circle and visualize your entire house and yard bathed in a peaceful blue light. Since you have created a void by banishing the negativity, you will need to fill that void. Ask that good, protective spirits come into your home and that positive energies replace the negative ones that have just been banished. This is an important step, because if you don't fill the void with something good, the negativity will come right back.

Thank Hecate. Meditate if you wish, visualizing your life free from negative happenings and feelings and full of love, prosperity, and happiness. Feel how she has changed your home and your life. Close the Circle and know that it is done.
