I think for me Hekate basically said you know the truth and if your dumb enough to ignore it and me then i'm going to remind you in a manner that will help you recall it.  As time marches forward I find she is less tolerent of things I am supposed to know and either do not or seems to her as if I am ignoring.

Sure, that makes sense. I think many deities get cranky with us when they think we should know better. 
For me, it was just a little nagging thing in the back of my mind that I decided to look up. It sounds like you have been working with Hekate for a long time. I've only just begun to look into Her myths and history. I initially started looking for information on the roman goddess, Trivia. Most of of what I found pointed back to Hekate.

Which, now has me re-thinking some things, but that's another topic...

For me I got the direct impresson from her that if I put one of those on my body or recognized it she would show me what pain really was.  Now if I wanted to use the combination of Keys, Knife, Y and dice that would be fine.  In fact as soon as I get it just right I shall have it done.

I used that wheel symbol when I made my second portrait (among many) of Her and i didn't get the any particular wrong inkling. Of course, the symbol was actually a very small detail of the picture and this was when i was very in the beginning of my relationship with Hekate. I must I never truly understood/felt any connection to it neither.

The image is here if you want to look at it:

Now, the Keys, instead... i have silver miniature Keys on my altar, right beside Her portrait as TorchBearer and a small dog statue and a miniature snake i made myself. This seems to make my image of Her complete.

Don't get me started on the Crone thing. Something inside my mind rejects it even before seriously consider it. I feel a certain disdain toward the image in itself, whether it comes from me or Her.

On the general issue, i'm rarely satisfied with other people pictures/statuaries of deities i feel close to. I tend to prefer photoshoping gods myself until i am at complete ease with the result.

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~ Anatole France
