THE PAGAN REDE

 

-          PRESENTED BY THE TRUE ORDER OF LIGHT

 

 

 

BIDE WITHIN the Law ye must, in perfect

             Love & perfect Trust.

Live ye must & let to live, fairly take & fairly 

       give.

For tread the Circle thrice about to keep  

     unwelcome spirits out.

    To bind the Spell well every time, let the spell be  

   spake in rhyme.

   Light of eye & soft of touch, speak ye little, listen 

   much.

   Honour the Old-Ones in deed & name, let love &  

   light be our guides again.

II

   Deosil go by the waxing-moon, chanting out the 

   joyful tune.

   Widdershins go when the Moon doth wane, & the 

   warewolf howls by the dread wolfsbane.

   When the Ladyís Moon is new, kiss the hand to   

   Her times-two.

   When the Moon rides at Her peak, then thy   

   heartís desire seek.

III

   Heed the North-winds mighty gale, lock the door  

   & trim the sail.

   When the wind blows from the East, expect the 

   new & set the feast.

   When the wind comes from the South, love will   

   kiss thee on the mouth.

   When the wind whispers from the West, all hearts  

   shall find peace & rest.

IV

   Nine woods in the Cauldron go, burn them fast &    

   burn them slow.

   Birch in the fire goes to represent what the Lady   

   knows.

   Oak in the forest towers with might, in the fire it     

   brings the Lordís insight.

   Rowan is a tree of power causing life & magick to  

   flower.

   Willows at the waterside stand ready to help us  

   to the Summerland.

   Hawthorn is burned to purify & to draw faerie to  

   thine eye.

   Hazel-the Tree of Wisdom & Learning adds its  

   strength to the bright fire burning.

   White are the flowers of the Apple tree that brings 

   us fruits of fertility.

Grapes grow upon the vine,

      giving us both joy & wine.

Fir doth mark the Evergreen to represent immortality seen. 

Elder is the Ladyís tree, burn it not or cursed

yeíll be.

V

Four times the Major Sabbats mark, in the Light

& in the Dark.

As the old year starts to wane, the new begins,

itís now Samhain.

When the time for Imbolc shows, watch for

flowers through the snows.

When the wheel begins to turn, soon the Beltane fires shall burn.

As the wheel turns to Lamas night, power is

brought to magick rite.

Four times the Minor Sabbats fall, use the Sun to mark them all.

When the wheel has turned to Yule, light the Log,

Sylvanus rules.

In the Spring, when night equals day, time for

Ostara to come our way.

When the Sun has reached itís height, Litha is

nie, Oak & Holly shall fight.

Harvesting comes to one & all, when Autumnal leaves in Mabon fall.

VI

Heed  ye flower, bush, and tree, by the Lady

blessed yeíll be.

Where the rippling waters go, cast a stone, the

truth yeíll know.

When ye have & hold a need, harken not to

others greed.

With a fool no season spend, lest ye be counted

as their friend.

Merry Meet & Merry Part, bright the cheeks &

Warm the heart.

Mind the Three-fold Law ye must, three-times

bad & three-times good.

When misfortune is enow, wear the Star upon

thy brow.

True in love ye ever be, lest thy loverís false to

 thee.

VII

These Eight words the Rede fulfil: ďAn Ye Harm None, Do What Thou WiltĒ.
