Wiccan Rede

Wiccan Rede
Bide the wiccan laws ye must
In perfect love and perfect trust
Live and let live
Fairly take and fairly give

Cast the circle thrice about
To keep all evil spirits out
To bind the spell every time
Let the spell be spake in rhyme

Soft of eye and light of touch
Speak little listen much
Deosil go by the waxing moon
Sing and dance the wiccan rune

Widdershins go by waning moon
Chanting out the baneful rune
When the lady’s moon is new
Kiss the hand to her times two

When the moon rides at her peak
Then your heart desire seek
Heed the northwind 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 east
Expect the new and set the feast

When the west wind blows o’er thee
Departed spirits restless be
Nine woods in the cauldron go
Burn them quick and burn them slow

Elder be ye lady’s tree
Burn it not or cursed ye’ll be
When the wheel begins to turn
Let the beltane fires burn

When the wheel has turned a yule
Light the logs and let Pan rule
Heed ye flower bush and tree
By the Lady blessed be

Where the rippling waters go
Cast a stone an truth ye’ll know
When ye have need
Hearken not to other’s greed

With the fool no seaseson spend
Or be counted as his friend
Merry meet and merry part
Bright the cheeks an warm the heart

Mind the threefold law ye should
Three times bad and three times good
When misfortune is enow
Wear the blue star on thy brow

True in love ever be
Unless thy lover’s false to thee
Eight words the wiccan rede fulfill
An it harm none do what ye will
