Charge of the Goddess:

Aurora Lights Circle

    In 1899 Charles Godfrey Leland first published Aradia: Gospel of the Witches, a small book on surviving Italian witchcraft. In it he gives the Charge of the Goddess, which has become a standard part of Wiccan ritual today. This Charge is still used as originally given, but more often is carefully refined for modern usage.The Charge of the Goddess gives ancient instructions of when to meet and what to expect from Moon energies and powers. No one knows for certain how old the Charge really is; Leland thought it to be an authentic part of ritual secretly carried down from ancient times by Pagan worshippers in the Mediterranean region.

Charge of the Goddess

    Listen to the words of the Great Goddess, who in ancient times was named Diana, Artemis, Ishtar, Astarte, Aphrodite, Venus, Cerridwen, the Morrigu, Freyja, the White Lady, and many other names.

    Whenever you have need of My aid, assemble in a secret place at least once a month, especially at the Full of the Moon. Know that My laws and love shall make you free, for no one can prevent your worship of Me in your mind and heart and spirit. Listen well when you come into My presence, and I shall teach you of deep mysteries, powerful and ancient. I require no sacrifices or pain of your bodies, for I am Mother of all things, the Creatrix who made you out of My love, and the One who endures through all time.

    I am the One who is the beauty of the Earth, the green of growing things. I am the white Moon, whose light is full and bright among the stars, soft upon the Earth. From Me all things are born, to Me all things, in their season, return. Let My joyous worship be in your hearts, for all acts of love and pleasures are My rituals. You see Me in the love of man and woman, the love of parent and child, the love of humans to all My creations. When you create with your hands, I am there. I blow the breath of life into the seeds you plant, whether of plant or child. Always I stand beside you, whispering soft words of wisdom and guidance.

    All seekers of the Mysteries must come to Me, for I am the True Source, the Keeper of the Cauldron. All who seek to know Me, know this. All your seeking and yearning will avail you nothing unless you know the Mystery: for if what you seek you find not within, you will never find without. For behold, I have been with you from the beginning, and I will gather you to My breast at the end of your earthly existence.
