The Charge of the Goddess
Listen to the words of the Great Mother, who of old was called among men Artemis, Astarte, Dione, Melusine, Aphrodite, Cerridwen, Danu, Diana, Brigid, Arianhod, Isis, Bride, 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. There shall you assemble, you who are fain to learn all sorcery, yet have not won its deepest secrets; To these I will teach things that are yet unknown. You shall be free from slavery, and as a sign that you be free, you shall be naked in your rites. Sing, feast, dance, make music and love, all in my presence, For mine is the ecstacy of the spirit, And mine also is the joy on earth.
For my law is love unto all beings. Mine is the secret that opens upon the door of youth, and mine is the cup of wine of life that is the Cauldron of Cerridwen that is the holy grail of immortality.
Keep pure your highest ideal, strive ever toward it; Let nothing stop you or turn you aside; For I am the gracious Goddess who gives the gift of joy unto the heart of man. I give the knowledge of the spirit eternal and beyond death. I give peace and freedom and reunion with those that 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.
