The Charge of the Goddess
-------------------------------

Listen to the words of the Great Mother, who of old was called Artemis, Astarte, Dione, Melusine, Aphrodite, Ceridwen, Diana, Arionrhod, Brigid, and by many other names:
"Whenever you have need of anything, once in the month, and better it be when the moon is full, you shall assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of Me who is Queen of all the wise. You shall be free from slavery, and as a sign that you are free you shall be naked in your rites. Sing, feast, dance, make music and love, all in My presence, for Mine is the ecstasy of the spirit and Mine also is joy on earth. For My law is love unto all beings Mine is the secret that opens the door of youth, and Mine is the cup of wine of life that is the Cauldron of Ceridwen that is the holy grail of immortality. I give the knowledge of the spirit eternal and beyond death I give peace and freedom and reunion with those who have gone before. Nor do I demand aught of sacrifice, for behold, I am the mother of all things and My love is poured upon the earth."

Hear the words of the Star Goddess, the dust of whose feet are the hosts of heaven, whose body encircles the universe:
"I who am the beauty of the green earth and the white moon among the stars and the mysteries of the waters, I call upon your soul to arise and come unto me. For I am the soul of nature that gives life to the universe. From Me all things proceed and unto Me they must return. Let My worship be in the heart that rejoices, for behold--all acts of love and peasure are My rituals. Let there be beauty and strenth, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you. And you who seek to know Me, know that your seeking and yearning will avail you not, unless you know the Mystery: for if that which you seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find it without. For behold, I have been with you from the beginning, and I am that which is attained at the end of desire."

The Charge of the Goddess Ver. 2
---------------------------------------

Whenever you have need of anything, once in the month, and better to be when the moon is full, then shall you assemble in some secret place; to these I shall teach things that are yet unknown and you shall be free from all slavery. Keep pure your highest ideal, strive ever toward it, let nothing stop you nor turn you aside. Mine is the cup of the wine of life, and the cauldron of Cerridwen. I am the mother of all living and my love is poured out on the earth. I am the white and dark moon among the stars, and the mystery of the waters, and the desire in your heart.

Before my face, let your innermost divine self be enfolded in the raptures of the infinite. Know the mystery that if that which you seek you find not within you, you will never find it without you, for behold, I have been with you from the beginning and I await you now.

I am Maiden, I am Mother, and today I am the Wise Old Crone. I am Hecate. I am Cerridwen. Keeper of magic and mystery. Through me all things are transformed and reborn.
