The Rede of the Wicca

(Being known as the Counsel of the Wise Ones:)

Bide the Wiccan laws ye must; in Perfect Love and Perfect Trust Live and let live; Freely take and freely give Cast the circle thrice about; To keep all 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; Sing and dance the Wiccan rune Widdershins go when the moon doth wane; And the werewolf howls by dread wolfsbane When the Lady's moon is new; Kiss thy hand to her times two
When the moon rides at her peak; Then your heart's desire seek Heed the northwind'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; Departed spirits restless be Nine woods in the cauldron go; Burn them fast and burn them slow Elder be ye Lady's tree; Burn it not or cursed ye'll be When the Wheel begins to turn; Let the Beltaine fires burn
When the Wheel has turned to Yule; Light the log and let Pan rule Heed ye flower, bush and tree; By the Lady, Blessed be Where the rippling waters go; Cast a stone and truth ye'll know When ye have a need; Hearken not to others' greed
With the fool no season spend; Nor 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 on thy brow
True in love ever be; Unless thy lover's false to thee Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill; An' it harm none, do what ye will
