PostSubject: The Wiccan Rede   Fri Oct 05, 2012 1:05 am

Wiccans live by the Wiccan Rede, a simple benevolent moral code that holds that as long as no one is harmed, ‘do what thy wilt’. One popular version of the Rede, taught to her pupils by Dorothy Morrison, a leading American Wiccan and High Priestess of the Georgian Tradition, goes as follows:


Bide the Wiccan Law you must,
In perfect love and perfect trust.


(Keep the laws of Wicca lovingly and with perfect trust.)


Live and let live:
Fairly take and fairly give.


(Treat both nature and people as you would like to be treated.)


Cast the circle thrice about,
To keep the evil spirits out.


(When making magic, Wiccans usually cast a circle around themselves. They do this three times because the number three stands for the three phases of The Lord and The Lady.)


To bind the spell every time,
Let the spell be spake in rhyme.


(By speaking their spells in rhyme, witches believe it gives the conscious mind something to think about, while the unconscious mind taps into the energy of nature and the magic is done.)


Soft of eye and light of touch
Speak little and listen much.


(Wise magic makers are gentle. They listen and learn.)


Deasil go by the waxing moon,
Sing and dance the Witches’ Rune.


(When the moon is waxing – moving from slim crescent to plump fullness, it is the time to move round the ritual circle clockwise as this draws in good things.)


Widdershins go when the moon doth wane,
And werewolves howl by the dream wolfsbane.


(When the moon is waning is the time to move round the circle anti-clockwise as this takes away negativity. Wolfbane’s toxicity makes it a feared plant.)


When the Lady’s moon is new
Kiss thy hand to Her times two.


(Welcome the new moon – just visible in the sky after being dark for three nights – welcome her by kissing the index and middle finger twice.)


When the moon rides at her peak,
Then your heart’s desire speak.


(When the moon is full, you can ask her for anything as she will grant the heart’s desire.)


Heed the north wind’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,
The departed spirits restless be.


(These lines refer to the elements with the four directions.)


Nine woods in the cauldron go,
Burn them fast and burn them slow
Elder the Lady’s tree.
Burn it not, or cursed be.


(There are nine different magical woods burned in the witch’s cauldron during various rituals – apple, birch, fir, hawthorn, oak, rowan, vine and willow. Elder wood is never burned because the tree is sacred to The Lady.)


When the Wheel begins a turn,
Let the Beltane fires burn
When the Wheel hath turned to Yule,
Light the log and let Pan rule.


(This refers to the cycle of the year. Beltane, the spring sabbath and Yule the winter one, sit at opposite ends of the wheel of the year.)


Heed ye flower, bush and tree,
And by the Blessed Lady be!


(For the Lady’s sake, nurture and respect nature.)


Where the rippling waters flow,
Cast a stone and truth you’ll know.


(Actions spread, like the ripples caused by a stone cast on the water, affecting everyone and everything around.)


Whenever you do have a need,
Harken not to others’ greed.


(Never take money in exchange for using magical power.)


With the fool no seasons spend,
Nor be counted as his friend.


(Others associate you with the company you keep. If you mix with fools, that’s how you’ll be regarded.)


Merry meet and merry part,
Bright the cheeks and warm the heart.


(The company of friends is the best company there is.)


Mind the threefold law you should,
Three times bad and three times good.


(Always remember that whatever you do, good or bad, comes back to you three times.)


When misfortune is enow.
Wear the blue star on your brow.


(When trouble beckons, visualize a blue pentagram on your forehead for protection.)


True in love ever be.
Unless thy love is false to thee.


(Always be loyal in love: but if you are let down, move on.)


Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfil,
‘And it harm none, do what ye will’.


(Feel free to do whatever takes your fancy, as long as in doing so, no one is harmed.)
