The Wiccan Rede
Wiccan Laws we must
In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust...
Live and let
Fairly take and fairly give.
Cast the Circle thrice about
To keep the evil spirits out.
To bind the
spell every time
Let the spell be spake in rhyme.
Soft of eye and light of touch,
Speak but little, listen much.
Deosil go by
Chanting out the Witches' Rune.
Widdershins go by waning moon,
Chanting out the baneful rune.
Lady's moon is new,
Kiss thy hand to Her, times two.
When the moon rides at her peak,
Then your heart's desire seek.
North wind's mighty gale,
Lock the door and drop the sail.
When the wind comes from the South,
Love will kiss thee on the mouth.
When the wind
blows from the West,
Departed souls will have no rest.
When the wind blows from the East,
Expect the new and set the feast.
Nine woods in
the cauldron go,
Burn them fast and burn them slow.
Elder be the Lady's tree,
Burn it not or cursed you'll be.
Wheel begins to turn,
Let the Beltane fires burn.
When the Wheel has turned to Yule,
Light the log, the Horned One rules.
Flower, Bush and Tree,
By the Lady, Blessed Be.
Where the rippling waters go,
Cast a stone and truth you'll know.
When ye have
a true need,
Hearken not to others' greed.
With a fool no season spend,
Lest ye be counted as his friend.
and Merry Part,
Bright the cheeks and warm the heart.
Mind the Threefold Law you should,
Three times bad and three times good.
misfortune is now,
Wear the blue star on thy brow.
True in Love ever be,
Lest thy lover's false to thee.
