Druid Ritual Chalices

Hekete represents the dark underdome shown in front of the Unicorn bull from the Indus Valley. This place of Hecate collects fertility fluids from the life network and is the home of the glowing stars/souls represented by Selu (Selene). 
This is a rare unicorn seal from Harappa has both the upper and lower sky-shell which is shown as a chalice. This seal was found in the central area of Mound E and dates to Period 3B or early 3C, around 2450-2200 BC.

(Jan 29, 2023) Hekate is preserver and recycler of life powers created by Alu and passed down to the earth by Hu's life network as fertility-fluids. As such she represents the dark under-dome which is also the home of dead souls/spirits. She is associated with dark caves, subterranean waters, and deep pools. She is a part of the balance of life with the middle layer sun god Hu whose transmited fertility-fluids are manifested as light and heat. In the right amount they produce prosperity and healing but too much and they produce drought and death.

Hekate is an Akkadian word from He.Kate meaning "Hu's depleting power" or "the power which depletes Hu") The /e/ suffix indicates the deity's power is being referenced and not the persona. The following are the Lexicon entries:

KT [Akkadian katûLife source goddess Kate (Hekate), depletion (noun), to deplete (verb) - She acts more as the recycler and preserver of life powers instead of as a creator like her masculine complement Alu.Ḫ [Akkadian Ḫu] god Hu – the masculine deity which represents Atu's healing sun form powers (light, heat) as opposed to his chaotic storm form powers (rain). Hu also associates the motion powers with the life powers to move the fertility fluids through the network. Hu’s epithet is often HL meaning “bright one” which is also the source for the Greek sun god word “Helios.”

Greek writer Hesiod (500 BCE) in his book Theology says this about Hekate starting in line 404:

Again, Phoebe came to the desired embrace of Coeus. Then the goddess through the love of the god conceived and brought forth dark-gowned Leto, always mild, kind to men and to the deathless gods, mild from the beginning, gentlest in all Olympus. Also she bore Asteria of happy name, whom Perses (Destroyer) once led to his great house to be called his dear wife. And she conceived and bore Hecate whom Zeus the son of Cronos honored above all. He gave her splendid gifts, to have a share of the earth and the unfruitful sea. She received honor also in starry heaven, [415] and is honored exceedingly by the deathless gods. 
For to this day, whenever any one of men on earth offers rich sacrifices and prays for favor according to custom, he calls upon Hecate. Great honor comes full easily to him whose prayers the goddess receives favorably, and she bestows wealth upon him; for the power surely is with her. 
... and to those whose business is in the grey discomfortable sea, and who pray to Hecate and the loud-crashing Earth-Shaker, easily the glorious goddess gives great catch, and easily she takes it away as soon as seen, if so she will. She is good in the byre (cow shed) with Hermes to increase the stock.
