The Wiccan Rede
Bide ye Wiccan Laws ye must, in perfect love and perfect trust
Live ye must and let to live, fairly take and fairly give
Cast the Circle thrice about to keep unwelcome spirits out
To bind ye spell well every time let the spell be spake in rhyme.
Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak ye little, listen much.
Deosil go by the waxing moon, chanting out the Witches' Rune.
Widdershins go by the waning moon, chanting out ye baleful tune.
When the Lady's moon is new, kiss ye hand to her times two.
When the moon rides at her peak, then ye hearts desire seek.
Heed the North winds 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 will have no rest.
When the wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast.
Nine woods in the cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.
Elder be the 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 to Yule, light the log and the Horned One rules.
Heed ye flower, bush and tree, by the Lady, blessed be.
Where the rippling waters go, cast a stone, the truth ye'll know.
When ye have a true need, hearken not to others' greed.
With a fool no season spend, lest ye 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 upon thy brow.
True in love may ye ever be, lest they love be false to thee.
These eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill:
"Do as ye will, though it harms none".
