Something You Wish You Knew About this Deity but Don’t Currently

One of the things that I find confusing as it relates to Hecate is her place as the Cosmic World Soul.   It is said that she is the womb in which all souls were made.  She is the mother of all Souls.  The thoughts came to form as lightning which impregnated the womb with all the souls in the Chaldean Oracles.

I would also like to know her specific origins.  We know that she has been dated to Asia Minor and is considered older than the Greek stories of her.  I would like to be able to find a solid connection between her and perhaps the villages of China.  The Torch Festivals of those remote villages are held in the late summer and last for three days.  Torches are placed at the entrances to the houses and usually end in a huge bonfire.  Some activities include bulls and sheep which we know are directly related to Hecate.
