Hecate is the Greek goddess of the crossroads. She is most often depicted as having three heads; one of a dog, one of a snake and one of a horse. She is usually seen with two ghost hounds that were said to serve her. Hecate is most often mispercepted as the goddess of witchcraft or evil, but she did some very good things in her time. Hecate is said to haunt a three-way crossroad, each of her heads facing in a certain direction.
THE BANSHEE is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the underworld. In legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die. In Scottish Gaelic mythology, she is known as the bean sìth or bean-nighe and is seen washing the bloodstained clothes or armour of those who are about to die.
In greek mythology, Asteria ( Ἀστερία, “of the stars, starry one”) was the Titan goddess of the oracles and prophecies of night, (including prophetic dreams, and necromancy), and falling stars. She was daughter of the Titans Coeus and Phoebe and mother of Hecate, goddess of magic. After the fall of the Titans, Asteria was pursued by the god Zeus. She fled his advances, transforming herself into a quail and leaping into the sea where she became the island of Delos.
Freyja (Old Norse for ‘Lady’) is the goddess of love, beauty, fertility, magic, and war.

Freyja is married to a god named Óðr and has two daughters with him, who are called Hnoss and Gersemi; her dwelling is called Fólkvangr and since she’s one of the Valkyries, her halls host half of those who die in battle. #myth
Hera, Greek goddess of marriage, womanhood, and childbirth, was also known as queen of the gods. Her name literally means “lady”, which could well be interpreted as “The Lady”, since she was considered the alpha female of all of the Greek goddesses. She was said to be one of the most beautiful - a trait that seems to have been of extremely high importance to the goddesses, but was also one of the most jealous and spiteful of anyone in Greek mythology.
