The Wiccan Rede
(Doreen  Valiente) Version from Gardenarian BOS
Bide ye Wiccan laws ye must in perfect love and perfect trust

Live and let live, fairly take and fairly give

Form the circle thrice about to keep all evil spirits out

To bind ye spell every time, let ye spell be spake in rhyme

Soft of eye, light of touch, speak ye little, listen much

Deosil go by the waxing moon, singing out ye Witches' Rune

Widdershins go by the waning moon, chanting out ye Baneful Rune

When the Lady's moon is new, kiss your hand to her,  times two

When the moon rides at her peak, then ye heart's desire seek

Heed the North wind's mighty gale, lock the door and trim 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 may have no rest

When the wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast

Nine woods in ye cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow

Elder be ye Lady's tree, burn it not or cursed ye'll be

When the wheel begins to turn, soon ye Beltaine fire'll burn

When the wheel hath turned a Yule, light a log the Horned One rules

Heed ye flower, bush and tree, by the Lady blessed be

Where the rippling waters flow, cast a stone and truth ye'll know

When ye have and hold a need, harken not to others greed

With a fool no season spend, nor be counted as his friend

Merry meet and merry part, bright the cheeks and warm the heart

Mind ye threefold law ye should, three times bad and three times good

When misfortune is anow, wear the star upon thy brow

True in love ye must ever be, lest thy love be false to thee

In these eight words the Wicca Rede fulfill:

                    "An ye harm none, do what ye will".

                                                                         (AUTHOR UNKNOWN)

          Rituals of the Old Religion, known as Witchcraft or " Wicca "
           affects us in may ways:
            They speak too our present needs, help
          us to transform the Future, and enable us to experience a
           special link with The Pagan Past.

           The Main Tenet Of Witchcraft, The Wiccan Rede, is:

                  " An Harm None, Do What Thou Wilt "

           Do what you will... But don't do anything that will harm
           another. Its as simple as that.

                          Consider This:

            " We Wiccans give thanks to the Mighty Ones

               For the richness and goodness of life.

               As there must be rain with the sun,

               To make all things good, so we must suffer

               Pain with Our Joy, to know all things.

               Our Love is ever with the Gods,

               For though we know not their thoughts,

               Yet we know their hearts, That all is for our good. "

                                         So Mote It Be
