Hekate(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Hekate, asteroid 100 (the 100th asteroid to be discovered, on July 11, 1868), is approximately 84 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 5.4 years. Hekate was named after a Greek goddess of the underworld. J. Lee Lehman asserts that people with this asteroid strongly positioned in their natal charts “tend to break down other people’s images of themselves, as well as their own.” Jacob Schwartz gives the astrological significance of Hekate as “the end of the old before the beginning of the new; assertion of the older woman.”
