Full Wiccan Rede


 


Wiccan Rede

Bide the Wiccan Law 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,
Chanting out the Witches Rune.
Widdershins go by the 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’s desire seek.
Heed the North wind’s mighty gail,
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 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 you’ll be.
When the Wheel begins to turn,
Let the Beltane fire’s 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 and truth you’ll know.
When ye have a true need,
Hearken not to other’s 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 you should,
Three times bad and three times good.
When misfortune is enow,
Wear the blue star on they brow.
True in Love ever be,
Lest they lover is false to thee.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill:
An’ ye harm none, do what ye will
Follow this with Mind and Heart
Merry ye Meet and Merry ye Part

Hear the Witches Plea


WITCHES PLEA
We are not evil
We don’t harm or seduce people.
We are not dangerous.
We are ordinary people like you.
We have families, jobs, hopes, dreams.
We are not a cult.
This religion is not a joke.
We are not what you think we are from looking at t.v.
We are real.
We laugh, we cry.
We are serious.
We have a sense of humour.
You don’t have to be afraid of us.
We don’t want to convert you.
And please don’t try to convert us.
Just give us the same right we give you–to live in peace.
We are much more than you think.

Pagan/Wiccan Etiquette


These are just general guidelines. Always remember to show respect to others even non-Wiccan/Pagans

* It’s a huge NO-NO  to identify anyone as participating in Wicca or as having Pagan beliefs. This can be extremely harmful and detrimental to the person who has been “outed”. It may seriously harm someone to share this information with even one person! Wiccans and Pagans  are still subject to persecution, ridicule,prejudice and harassment. In many cases this includes our own family.  A Witch may “come out of the broom closet” to only certain people. Never assume it to be your responsibility to share that information with others. Always be mindful of what you say. If you follow the Wiccan Rede (“An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will”) remember that outing someone can be harmful and is never acceptable.

* Even if you accidentally tell others about someones beliefs, tell the Witch involved as soon as possible exactly what was said.She may want to do damage-control. This is not a time to become defensive, remember you were wrong and it’s common respect to give him/her fair warning before she is confronted and caught off guard.

* Don’t “evangelize” others. No wants wants to feel as if  they are being forced to convert their beliefs. You can tell people about your spiritual path of course.  But no religion benefits by being forced down other peoples throats. This is basic Wiccan etiquette, that all religions would be smart to follow.

*Never cast spells on other witches. Never use the power against some else who has the power. If someone has “the power” they are connected to the Divine. So another person connected would be damaging their own power by working against another also connected.  Performing magick against other Witches brings the repercussions back to the sender.

*If you know of a Witch who is casting spells  against another tell the other Witch immediately. Harm will never come to the Witch that a spell has been cast against but harm will come to the sender. It is best for you both to disconnect from that individual and try the “friendship” again later after the individual has had time to grow and mature.

*Remember some individuals get arrogant after learning about the “Craft” and use their powers to stroke their own egos. It is best to disconnect from these types.

*Using magick irresponsibly goes against the Rede

*Never use magick against another that is in the craft.
