The Rede of the Wiccae

Lady Gwen Thompson

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 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 little, listen much.

Deosil?go by?the waxing Moon,

sing and dance the Wiccan rune.

Widdershins?go when the moon doth wane,

and the Werewolf howls by the dread Wolfsbane.

When the 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.

Heed the Northwind'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 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 a' 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 at?Yule,

light the log and let Pan rule.

Heed ye flower bush and tree,

by the Lady?Bless'd Be.

Where the rippling waters go

cast a stone and truth ye'll know.

When find that ye have need,

hearken not to others' greed.

With the fool no season spend

or be counted as his friend.

Merry meet and merry part,

bright the cheeks and 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 ye Wiccan Rede fulfill:

An' it harm none, do what ye will.


Threefold Law of Magic:

"For what [magic] we do for good or for ill, shall be returned to us threefold."
