    Is there another creature that should be sacred to Hekate? ... gy-symbol/ ... re-2561631 ... p?id=34628

    In conclusion, just as Hekate / Hecate cause us to change via transformation and guides us through the changes of our lives the Butterfly is representative of that process. Just as the Butterfly has to undergo the various developmental changes to come out stronger and enlightened, so do we as followers of Hekate. Accepting change and loosing those aspects or limitations that hold us back in our spiritual and / or magical development.

    The logic seems sound but I don't have enough understanding of Hellenic lore (or Roman, since you reference them) to know if there are any problems on that front. I do think it's a well constructed argument and a pretty interesting concept overall.
    life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

      I don't see why you -couldn't- associate the two, and as far as the life cycles go that stands on it's own. I don't think that it really requires anything about psi or psyche. That these are associated with breath and butterflies (and other such things) might have quite a bit more to do with phonetics.
