The Lady’s Call: The Charge of the Goddess

Whenever you need of anything, once a month and better when the moon is full, then ye assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of me, who is queen of all witcheries. There shall ye assemble who wish to learn all sorceries, and who have not yet won my deepest secrets. To these I shall teach that which is yet unknown. And ye shall be free from all slavery. As a sign that ye be really free, ye shall be naked in your rites. Sing, feast, make music and love, all in my name. For mine is the ecstasy of the spirit and mine is also the joy of the earth.

For my law is love to all being. Mine is the secret that opens on the door of youth. Mine is the cup of the wine of life and the cauldron of Cerridwen, which is the holy grail of immortality. I am the gracious goddess, who gives the gift of joy unto the heart of man upon the earth.

I give knowledge of the spirit eternal and beyond, I give peace, freedom and reunion with those who have gone before. Nor do I demand naught bloodshed in sacrifice for behold, I am the mother of all things and my love is poured out upon the earth.
