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
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
Honour the Old-Ones in deed & name, let love &
light be our guides again.
Deosil go by the waxing-moon, chanting out the
Widdershins go when the Moon doth wane, & the
warewolf howls by the dread wolfsbane.
When the Ladyís Moon is new, kiss the hand to
When the Moon rides at Her peak, then thy
heartís desire seek.
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.
Nine woods in the Cauldron go, burn them fast &
burn them slow.
Birch in the fire goes to represent what the Lady
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
Willows at the waterside stand ready to help us
to the Summerland.
Hawthorn is burned to purify & to draw faerie to

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
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,
In the Spring, when night equals day, time for

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

Where the rippling waters go, cast a stone, the
truth yeíll know.
When ye have & hold a need, harken not to
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
True in love ye ever be, lest thy loverís false to
These Eight words the Rede fulfil: ďAn Ye Harm None, Do What Thou WiltĒ.
